Human security guards can be a physical deterrent to any opportunist criminals who are planning an attack on your site. However, as the saying goes ‘they’re only human’ which means that several problems can arise if you rely solely on manned guards to patrol your site instead of investing in contemporary technology solutions. Security guards can be:
- Late to work
- May become ill either during or before a shift, leaving your site unmonitored
- Unable to patrol during adverse weather conditions
- Limited by the range of their eyes
- An expensive option, typically costing £1,000 a week for coverage of 123 hours
If you’re thinking twice about depending on security guards to monitor your site, you’ll be pleased to hear about an affordable, efficient and highly effective security solution known as the virtual guard system.
How Do Virtual Guard System Packages Work?
Our virtual guard system Manchester product is the perfect solution if you have a construction site or vacant property that needs to be monitored when unoccupied. This might be 24/7, or else on a typical working shift pattern during the night or at the weekends, as required. Our virtual alarm is a wireless video verification alarm which uses state-of-the-art surveillance technology to monitor your site. The feed will be monitored remotely at a central guard station by our highly experienced professional security analysts. You will be in control of the schedule, so that our team will watch your surveillance feed for the precise length of time that you request. We will respond to any breaches or security events in real time so you can be assured that your site or property is in excellent hands.
Responding to a Security Event
In the event that our security professionals witness that an intrusion or breach is taking place on your site, they will verify that the incident is genuine in real time, before dispatching a trained SIA-approved responder to your site. This happens within a matter of minutes, usually backed up by the relevant authorities. The responders are highly experienced in conflict training so are able to deal with any type of situation.
Flexible Virtual Alarm Systems in Manchester
Your virtual guard service is a flexible solution which allows you to pick the times that you’d like your site to be monitored. The cameras which overlook your site can be armed and disarmed accordingly to your schedule specifications which can of course change depending on your needs. This provides you with an incredibly versatile security solution in comparison to hiring a manned guard to carry out physical patrols of your site. Additionally, we understand that the nature of construction sites means that their size, formation and location change frequently. As our virtual alarm is so easy to install and disassemble, this means that we can continue to monitor your site whether it evolves at the same location, or if you need to move onto a new project. This provides peace of mind for construction company owners that their raw materials, equipment and personnel are constantly protected wherever they may be.
Of course, if you wish to combine a virtual guard system with a manned ad-hoc patrol service, this is also possible and a great way to strengthen your security strategy further.
