    See our Virtual Guard in action


    Always-on security across your portfolio

    Depending on the size of your local authority, you may have multiple buildings or departments in your portfolio that require an around-the-clock security solution. With many buildings being open to the public, you also need confidence that criminal or anti-social behaviour can be detected, reported and dealt with quickly. This will ensure the efficient running of your operation and guarantee the safety of your staff, as well as other members of the public.

    SECOM’s Smart Guarding range provides an ever-vigilant alternative to manned guarding or traditional CCTV. Our Virtual Guard transmission system can detect issues before they happen and report suspicious activity directly to SECOM’s Control and Command Centre, allowing us to contact authorities immediately. Our two-way IP Speakers and microphones also enable us to deal with threats remotely, de-escalating situations without the need for staff to get involved.

    Cost-efficient and effective

    SECOM’s Smart Guarding solutions are the ideal alternative to traditional manned guarding in the public sector. Manned guards deter would-be intruders and threats, but they cannot cover multiple buildings or areas at once. Our solutions provide increased range and capacity at a fraction of the operational cost!

    By reducing the hours required of manned guards to the most critical times – such as early in the morning or as staff are leaving the building – your organisation can drastically reduce the cost of security, all without compromising on the level of protection or the quality of response. SECOM’s products offer greater visibility, faster response times and typically deliver ROI within four weeks. Furthermore, with low-cost installation by our expert engineers, you can have a fully customised smart security solution in place, in no time at all.

    • 24/7 security for your buildings
    • Intelligent solutions for any environment
    • Reduce hiring and training costs of manned guards
    • Protects staff by removing the need for confrontation
    • State-of-the-art smart security systems
