Virtual patrols, also known as virtual guard touring, are an innovative security approach that leverages technology to automate the monitoring of remote locations. As remote guarding services become more sophisticated, virtual patrols will become essential for organizations looking to keep their assets safe.
What are virtual patrols, and how do they work?
Virtual patrols use cameras, sensors, and other equipment to monitor a site remotely. These devices are strategically placed around the location and connected to a central monitoring system staffed by trained security personnel. They can even stop an incident in progress with no danger to security personnel.
Virtual Patrols are Centralized
The security personnel monitoring the system can then use virtual guard touring software to “patrol” the site remotely. This software allows security officers to view live video feeds from the cameras and monitor sensor data from the other devices. They can also receive alerts if any of the sensors detect a security breach or if the cameras detect any suspicious activity.
Virtual patrols can be automated
Once the monitoring devices are in place, the system can operate around the clock without requiring security personnel to be physically present. The result is often significant cost savings for organizations since they no longer need to pay for on-site security guards. The system can be configured to send an alert if an anomaly is detected.
Multiple sites can be monitored simultaneously.
Virtual patrols are especially useful for organizations with multiple remote locations that must be monitored. Virtual patrols allow security personnel to watch all these locations from a single central location, making detecting and responding to security breaches easier.
