Virtual Guard System

A virtual guard, also known as remote guards, monitor your security system and keep a watch on the surveillance cameras from a central guard station at an off-site location. Our highly trained professionals will monitor the wireless surveillance cameras remotely for the desired length of time and will be able to react in real time to events.

A monitored alarm system is ideal for use on construction sites and vacant properties and are able to address any situation that arises in real time.

The Benefits of a
Virtual Guard System

Security guards are only human, and in most cases, not as efficient or effective as modern technology. That’s why we don’t do manned guards, we specialise in wireless video verification alarms for construction sites and vacant properties, otherwise known as a monitored alarm system called Virtual Guard.

Do you currently use manned guards? If so, below are a number of key reasons why you should consider our construction site alarm over a guard: –


Are virtual alarm systems more effective than human guards?

Both virtual alarm systems and human guards have their benefits in securing a construction site or vacant property. Virtual alarms compensate for the limitations of a human guard, by offering a permanent security strategy regardless of the weather or physical health of an employed member of staff. You can rest assured that your site is being watched when you have opted for a wireless video verification alarm to be set up. However, human guards also work well in combination with our virtual surveillance services. We can arrange for site patrols to be carried out 24/7 to support our fully monitored wireless alarms.

When should you use a virtual alarm system?

Any construction site, vacant property or commercial premises left unoccupied, even for a short while, can benefit from the installation of a virtual alarm system. If you either have zero security in place, or are looking for a more cost-effective security strategy, then our wireless alarms are the perfect solution. Costing 80% less than the wages of a human security guard, but spanning a 1000m radius across your site, you can be assured that your entire premises will be kept under the watchful eye of our highly qualified security team. Your works will often be left unoccupied during evenings and weekends, as well as Christmas, bank holidays and any period when your project is delayed. All of these are times when a virtual alarm system is an absolute necessity to prevent trespassers from entering your site and stealing your valuable assets.

How much do virtual alarm systems cost?

Our virtual alarm systems are versatile and will be adapted to the scale of your individual site. Therefore, the cost of our wireless alarms will depend on the extent of your site or if you require multisite coverage. We will provide our virtual guard service on a schedule that suits you. For example, you may need the virtual guard to be disarmed during the daytime when your site is occupied, but wish us to arm the service in the evenings or weekends. Sicuro will create a bespoke package depending on your specific requirements. Get in touch with us today for a FREE no obligation quote.
