Optical-based security systems are not meant to replace human operators or personnel outright but instead to allow them to make better informed and smarter decisions. Systems such as Gatekeeper’s Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System enables security employees to operate safer and quicker than they ever have been before. Manual inspection can cause some issues, some of which we will list in this blog. Read on to learn about some issues with manual security inspections in comparison to modern security technology.
Having an entire comprehensive security system, whether entirely manual or relying on technology from Gatekeeper’s products, means thorough and complete searches. There can be no stone that is unturned, or in the case of the underside of a vehicle, no crevice that is left unchecked. It is critical that whichever security system you choose is able to perform a full search of the underside of vehicles, and in the case of any manual inspection, that can be challenging. Especially if the investigation is completed with a mirror instead of modern technology.
A part of the issue that manual security inspection requires the personnel or employees to know the vehicle’s mechanical layout. There are thousands of varying types of vehicles that exist, and there are no ways to ensure your whole security staff knows what to look for and in which spots. An automated security system takes those stresses away and puts it into the hands of technology that will do all that heavy lifting for you, making your security employees more informed and better suited to act.
Eliminating Any Human Errors
Security guards work very hard. Typically, security staff will be posted at a border crossing or other facility for hours at a time in varying working conditions. It would be unfair to expect optimal work and perfection from them, and at the end of the day, the only goal is to make everything safer. If a guard is tired and makes any mistakes, it is just tossed up to as a human error. Suppose your business or facility uses a system like Gatekeeper’s Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System or our Pedestrian Identification Clearance System. In that case, the issues created by human errors are then eliminated from occurring again.
