Optical-based security systems are here to stay. However, they’re not meant to replace human personnel outright but instead are here to allow them to make much better informed and smarter decisions for the sake of security. Systems like Gatekeeper’s very own Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System grant security employees the power to operate quicker and safer than ever before. Manual inspections can cause a couple of problems, some of which are lesser-known, and we’ll list them in today’s blog. Read on to learn about a few problems with manual security inspections compared to modern security technologies.
Comprehensive Security Inspections
Having a whole comprehensive security system, whether they are entirely manual or counting on technology from Gatekeeper’s own products, means through detailed and complete searches. There can be no stoned unturned, or in the undercarriage of a car, no crease or crevice is left unchecked. It is important that whatever security system you pick is capable of performing a full-on search of the undercarriage of any vehicle, and in the case of manual inspections, this can be quite hard. If the inspection is done through the use of mirrors, you can easily miss one tiny crevice or crack in the complicated undercarriage system of a car. This is why modern security technology solutions from Gatekeeper are the best choice for efficiency and comprehensiveness.
A part of the problem is that manual security inspection requires the employees or personnel to know the vehicle’s current mechanical layout. There are all types of vehicles that drive on roads every day, and there are ways to ensure each member of your security staff knows what they should be looking for and in which areas of each vehicle. An automated security system will take the stress away and put it into the hands of technology that will do every bit of heavy lifting for you. This will make your security employees more informed and better prepared and make their jobs much easier.
Eliminating Human Errors for Good
Security personnel work quite hard. Usually, security staff will be stationed at a border crossing, entrance to a facility, or other building for hours at a time in different working conditions. It would be unfair to expect perfection from them every single day, and the only goal is to ensure that everything is safe. If a guard is tired and makes a mistake, it’s labeled as a human error. If your business decides to use a system like our own Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System, then the issues created by humans are eliminated.
