Man Vs Machine: Who Would You Choose?

There are a number of ways to use technology to improve physical security. By integrating video recording equipment with motion detection system and alarms, security officials can maximize their surveillance capabilities. But what happens when a branch swaying in the wind sets off alarms every five minutes, or the night turns too dark to distinguish movement properly? Can these machines really replace traditional, human patrols? Perhaps not, but these machines do not sleep. These machines cannot be bribed or sell out their organization. So where then do we place our trust? The answer, as with questions in life, lies in compromise. The proper combination of technology and equipment, matched with trustworthy and well trained security personnel, is the only way to properly ensure security. Don’t choose one or the other. Choose both. Choose real security.
