Today’s optical-based security systems aren’t meant to completely replace human operators or personnel entirely but instead allow them to make more educated and more intelligent decisions. Systems like Gatekeeper’s own Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System will enable security personnel to operate faster and safer than ever before. Manual inspections could cause some problems, especially in a rush. We will list them all in today’s blog. Read on to learn so much more about a few problems with manual security inspections compared to an arsenal of modern security technology!
Comprehensive Security Systems
Having a whole comprehensive security system, whether manually or relying on technology from Gatekeeper’s products, means thorough and total searches for suspicious objects. There shouldn’t be any stone that is left unturned, or in the case of underneath the vehicle, no crevice that is left unchecked. It is vital that whichever security system you pick is able to conduct a search of the underside of any vehicle, no matter the size. In the case of manual security inspections, this can be hard. Especially if the investigation is done with an outdated method of mirror inspections instead of implementing security technology.
One part of the problem is that manual security inspections require security personnel to know everything about a vehicle’s mechanical layout. There are countless kinds of vehicles that pass by facilities and border crossings every day, and there are no ways to make sure your entire security staff knows what they should be looking for and in which areas of the car. An automated security system will take those stresses away, and it will put it into the hands of security technology that does all the heavy lifting. This makes your security personnel more informed, better suited to act, and able to focus their attention on other pressing security matters.
Getting Rid of Human Errors
Security personnel work hard and also work long hours. Usually, security personnel are posted at facilities, campuses, and border crossings for long hours in all types of working conditions. It wouldn’t be fair to expect optimal work and perfection from them, and at the very end of a shift, the main goal is to ensure everything is safe and protected. If a security employee is tired and makes mistakes, it will be marked as a human error. If your business or organization uses a system like our Automatic Under Vehicle Inspection System, then human errors are no longer an issue.
