Security Command Center Hiring Now

Where Are Security Guards Needed?

Remote Guarding Jobs in Georgia 

Have you ever wondered what really happens in a command center? It’s likely you are envisioning a dark room mounted with dozens of screens, lights blinking rhythmically and computers beeping occasionally. And that is not far from reality. However, there is much more to working in a command center than switching between screens.  

BOS Security specializes in Interactive Video Surveillance, Monitoring, and Integration, as well as Virtual Interactive Concierge & Physical Guarding. We even coined our own name for it: VirtuGuard™. Remote guarding is a rapidly growing industry with room for individual growth and an opportunity to protect communities from a command center. 

What is VirtuGuard™? 

VirtuGuard™ is BOS Security’s remote guarding service that monitors client cameras 24/7/365. Our clients give our Command Center access to monitor their cameras for intrusions, burglaries, or any other threats. Features include:

  • Video Verification: An alarm will signal if a threat is perceived to be in progress. The Command Center Agent will review the video footage and if the threat is deemed to be credible, the agent will issue a voice command or report the suspect or vehicle to the responding agency. 
  • Virtual Patrol: Our virtual officers complete scheduled virtual guard tours through each of the relevant onsite cameras. They can do guard tours with or without voice command announcements. Guard tours with voice commands alert employees and patrons that their safety is being visually and audibly monitored. On the other hand, guard tours without voice commands discreetly ensure company compliance. This includes monitoring employees counting and handling cash drawers, unauthorized people, and shoplifting. 
  • Security Escorts: If a person is going from one destination to another, our virtual guard escorts will be an extra set of eyes and ears to ensure that the employee makes it to their destination safely. 
  • Virtual Openings and Closings: Opening or closing a store often requires two employees to be present for safety and accountability. Our command center agents can virtually monitor store openings and closings by being the second person, but remote. 
  • Voice Commands: Our Command Center Agents can issue Customer Care Commands within the location they are monitoring. These commands are delivered in a friendly, welcoming tone and are used to greet customers, make storewide announcements, and assist employees in need of assistance.  
  • Audio Deterrent: If a Virtual Officer notices suspicious or criminal activity, they can activate audio speakers to issue warnings. These Protection Voice Commands are delivered in a more authoritative tone and are used to disperse loitering, discourage shoplifting, and address intruders. Audio deterrent can be an effective method of preventing or stopping crime or vandalism. 
  • Operational Safety Audits: Our security team will work with clients to develop an operational audit plan to customize the inspection of the location. Our agents will confirm that special items or areas of interest, such as store policies and corporate standards, are followed by staff and patrons. Should there be any violations or concerns, the agent will take a snapshot video of the incident, create a detailed report, and submit them to their supervisor and the site’s security executives. The purpose of conducting a safety audit is to ensure that procedures are in place in the event of a dangerous incident.  VirtuGuard™ allows for clients to monitor and protect their properties with the attention and responsiveness of human guards, but from a remote location.
