Let’s Compare: Virtual Guard Vs Security Guard. How Do They Stack Up?

How does a Virtual Guard system differ from a traditional Security Guard?

On-site security guards are an integral part of keeping many premises and businesses protected and preventing criminal activity. But, on-site security guards have a limited capacity. Why? Because they simply cannot be everywhere at once.

This is why we offer the Virtual Guard system.

What is Virtual Guard?

The Virtual Guard System works like this:

A professional security systems company installs the camera system on location. These cameras typically have audio capabilities, which adds an additional feature, called voice-down, allowing the central station two-way communication with the site. The central monitoring station will monitor the cameras based on a given protocol. This system provides REAL TIME visibility to vulnerable areas . Upon seeing suspicious activity the central monitoring station will voice-down a command to leave the premises. No response? No change in activity? Is it a dangerous or threatening situation? The central monitoring station will dispatch emergency responders immediately, while giving real time descriptions and activity updates.

What are the benefits?

Activity verified on the spot-

Central Monitoring Station verifying criminal activity on site.

The central monitoring station will direct the responding officers to the exact location of the intruders and give descriptions of appearance. Police response increases when the threat is video verified.  This interactive remote guarding system creates an overall safer environment at your home or business. The system stops crime and vandalism in progress and is more cost effective than a traditional security guard.


Analytics make the system sophisticated-

Essentially, the Virtual Guard system is an automated sensing device. It’s only role is to detect and alert. You don’t need a security guard to watch multiple TV screens. The virtual guard system uses intelligent analytics to detect threats in real time. Virtual Guard analytics configured to detect and alert for unauthorized vehicles, trespassing individuals or groups of loitering people are among the most common uses. They can even record and store a database of license plates! Your Virtual Guarding is all-inclusive – WATCHING, DETECTING, DEFINING, DETERRING and DISPATCHING!

Let’s put this to a real life scenario. There is a security guard patrolling your premises. A visitor approaches the guard to ask a question or request access to the property. While all of this is happening at the front of the building, the security guard cannot see the vandals in the back parking lot trying to break into cars. He can only see what he can see!

Maybe he hears the crooks and runs towards the lot while calling to dispatch police. They see him coming and run! Now what? Does he chase them and leave the premises unguarded? Does he attempt to remember or pick out details about their appearance?

Our sophisticated virtual guard system won’t put the security of your premises at risk.
