The Elite Electronic Guarding Service

Over the last 20 years the battle between Traditional Manned Guarding and Electronic Guarding has been a ferocious one, with the balance of power in the past favouring Security Guards.

The potential cost savings, coupled with huge advances in digital camera technology has started to tip the balance away from guarding and into cameras, voice over IP and remote monitoring.

Many people choose to have Security Guards instead of cameras, and feel this may be more effective. However, the table below clearly demonstrate some of the problems associated with Guards compared to Cameras.
