Across the board, employers are having a tough time filling jobs. Security guard jobs are among the hardest hit. It’s never an easy job, and right now, there is the added threat of being exposed to the COVID-19 virus and dealing with protests in schools, hospitals, and businesses. You can hardly blame officers for looking at other fields or rejecting some positions. Whether you have your own security staff or work with a security company that provides officers, you may find yourself short-handed as far as on-site guards go. What’s the best way to fill the security gap?
Remote Monitored Video Guarding
Replace or augment your on-site security team with remote guards. Virtual security officers monitor your network-enabled video cameras from a central remote security operations center. They are able to visualize your entire property and alert on-site guards or first responders in the case of a disturbance, intrusion, fire, or other anomalies requiring further investigation. Giving them additional tools such as cameras with motion sensing, heat sensing, and lidar or radar technologies can enhance the level of protection they can provide for you.
Virtual guards can also issue a verbal warning directly to any intruders and or note harmless interactions such as a camera tripped by wildlife or weather, preventing in-person guards from being distracted with false alarms.
