The convergence of technology with traditional guarding services is heating up—in a good way. Paired together, the two can deliver greater security results and maximum budgetary efficiencies.
Think, the Internet of Things—the interconnectivity of physical devices, vehicles, buildings, and other items with electronics, software, and sensors to make environments smarter and more effective.
In another tech example, educational campuses and hospitals can compare the costs of manned live video monitoring versus the ability to leverage video analytics to repurpose the stationed dispatcher for alternative uses. Increasing coverage and monitoring is much more scalable and cost effective than simply using manpower alone. Many end users are realizing significant cost savings by applying hybrid solutions (security professionals in conjunction with real- time monitoring using analytics) across their diverse range of properties and assets.
Video surveillance solutions that proactively intervene to deliver an unprecedented level of intelligence to mitigate risk at your facility are but one aspect of a monitoring and response center’s capabilities. This virtual hub of threat awareness, situational intelligence and critical event management is quickly becoming the standard in the security sector.
Several of our tech partners such a Swan Island Networks, FLIR, Lenel and GVK Elevator Consulting Services offer application uses and live demonstrations. Together, they provide a comprehensive tech picture, so that your organization can stay abreast of how the latest technological innovations can turn your security operation into an integrated and intelligence model.
