Smartphones in our pockets, online digital assistants in the house, artificial intelligence and data mining in the business, technology has become ubiquitous and permeates every aspect of our daily lives, there now appears to be the potential for a better, smarter solution for nearly every task.
Technology, in many forms, can help us improve our personal and professional lives by streamlining processes and automating repetitive, precise tasks. Some believe that technology will help, but others are more suspicious as to its reach and impact with moral and ethical considerations to consider.
The rapid speed of technological progress, along with a slew of new threats and insecurity in many parts of the world, raises a slew of questions for the security business, particularly manned guarding. Will the manned guard soon be a thing of the past, given the changing nature of the globe and everyday threats?
#1 CCTV and Technology in Security
These days, there is a vast quantity of digital technologies available for security operations. From modern CCTV and facial recognition to cloud-based logbooks and digital locks, everything is covered. With all of this technology at their disposal, many business owners have chosen a combination of these instead of manned guarding to save money and establish a smaller, more efficient operation than a huge security force.
Technology advancements are a big benefit to the security business, and they may frequently provide you with a fantastic toolkit to aid in the execution of a security job. A true human intervention, on the other hand, is the only way to truly stop theft in the process. Vandalism is also a possibility with CCTV and locks. Although CCTV is often effective as a deterrent, nothing beats the presence of a uniformed security guard.
#2 Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence has come a long way, but there is still much more development and growth to be achieved. Computer systems can analyse data, images, and information faster and more effectively than humans, but they lack the ability to adapt and change to new, unknown stimuli to the same degree as trained security officers.
#3 Security Androids
In fact, machine-based methods are becoming more common in a variety of industries. Automated security robots already exist; however, their shape and function are currently crude and primitive. While many people believe that automated security guards will someday replace human security guards, there is a compelling argument that this is simply not achievable with today’s technology. An android would currently lack the sensitivity, intuition, and judgment of a properly qualified security officer due to the scope of security work that must be done correctly. That does not appear to be changing anytime soon.
#4 Embracing technology
To prevent current and future potential risks, the security industry must deliver effective and efficient systems and services. New technology has been and continues to be widely adopted and utilised throughout the security business in its various forms and applications.
Shergroup Security Services keeps a close eye on the viability of the technology for security, and we rely heavily on tools like our 24-hour control room to help us do our job. Nothing, however, can replace the intuition and abilities of a well-trained and experienced security officer in our opinion.
#5 Some Forms of Security Technology Are Too Expensive
Not every company can afford cutting-edge technology, depending only on it is unsustainable. For the most part, however, monitoring software and alarm systems are sufficient for properties such as modest to average-sized houses and small offices. Rather than needing to keep security guards on-site all of the time, this technology warns them when questionable activity occurs.
#6 Security Personnel Training That Moves with The Times
Security guards will continue to be relevant as long as they have the knowledge and skills to employ technology. Only those who are enslaved to the past will be rendered obsolete. The goal is to accept technology as a necessary component of the job.
#Technology Provides Tools for Security Guards to Do Better in Their Jobs
CCTV cameras, alarm systems, and access control devices are all available to help security personnel do their jobs better. They act as extra eyes and ears, observing movement and activities so that those on duty can respond quickly if danger arises.
The technology in the security field is continuously growing, which means that things may change. For the time being, technology software and hardware are extensions of the senses that security guards utilise to protect the property and lives they are responsible for. Rather than replacing security guards, technology will enhance their position.
