When the perimeter security of your property is a top concern, you have to make sure every single vehicle that enters and leaves is inspected to cover all of your bases. Using handheld mirrors for under vehicle inspections is one of the oldest and most affordable methods in the book. Still, it is now a thing of the past for most organizations conducting security inspections. A mirror’s options are pretty minimal and provide a number of potential risks for those working in security. A handheld mirror isn’t a security professional’s choice due to these reasons since it is outdated and there are better options available. Why should you depend on one set of eyes and use an old mirror when system-integrated, high-tech security technology exists to keep your perimeter safe? Read on for a few reasons why mirror vehicle inspections are now a thing of the past and how existing under vehicle inspection technology can help!
Mirror Vehicle Inspection Require A Lot of Personnel Located on the Premises
For mirror vehicle inspections to be done correctly, security personnel are exposed to whatever threat, whether it’s a bomb or a weapon, but they are exposed to that threat for too long. Whether they are looking for weapons at a border crossing or at an airport, like a tracking device or explosives, the security and safety of people should be the number one priority for your entire organization. Once security is a problem, you have to take each precaution with remote viewing technology. Gatekeeper Security’s own under vehicle inspection technology offers safe, secure remote view capabilities that can keep your security personnel out of the weather elements and positioned at a private and safe location close by.
Mirror Vehicle Inspections Do Not Offer Extensive Analytics Reports and Data Collection Capabilities
The success of mirror inspection searches depends mostly on the security personnel conducting the vehicle search. Other than taking time to write or type a license plate number in full for each vehicle, there is no other way to go about a mirror inspection efficiently. While integrated with our own under vehicle inspection technology, Gatekeeper Security’s license plate scanner is able to capture a vehicle’s license plate data and then place it into a historical archive. This can then be referred to later whenever you feel the need to inspect or scan a suspicious vehicle or a fleet of other cars.
Mirror Inspections Take Way Too Long
For a mirror inspection to work efficiently, just one vehicle alone might take a long time. This kind of inspection is very labor-intensive and time-consuming too. A security professional’s main goal is to identify and detect more in less time to help improve workflow productivity. Our scanning technology keeps vehicles moving and improves your overall perimeter security without causing a backup within productivity.
