As RAD’s AI technology continues to advance and move into the mainstream, the use of autonomous security robots, such as ROSA, AVA, RIO, ROAMEO and RADDOG, are becoming increasingly common in the security industry. These devices have the potential to enhance security and increase efficiency by continuously monitoring for potential threats and alerting authorities or facility security of any suspicious activity. However, there are also concerns about the impact of autonomous security robots on traditional human security guards and the role they will play in the future. In this blog, we will explore how traditional human security guards and autonomous security robots can coexist and work together effectively to provide a higher level of protection for properties.
One of the main benefits of using autonomous security robots is their ability to cover a wide area and continuously monitor for potential threats. These devices can be used to patrol the perimeter of a property or to monitor specific areas, such as entrances and exits, allowing for round-the-clock protection.
One of the key roles that traditional human security guards will continue to play is the ability to assess situations and take appropriate action. While autonomous devices are able to detect potential threats, they do not yet have the ability to interpret or understand the context of a situation. For example, an autonomous device may detect a group of individuals loitering in an area and alert authorities, but it cannot determine whether their presence is a genuine threat or simply a group of friends chatting. Human security guards, on the other hand, are able to assess situations and determine the best course of action based on their training and experience. They can also provide a personal touch and reassurance to individuals on the property, which can be particularly important in situations where there may be confusion or fear.
Another advantage of traditional human security guards is their ability to interact with individuals and provide a sense of reassurance. In situations where an autonomous device has detected a potential threat, a human security guard can approach the individuals and assess the situation, possibly defusing any potential conflict before it escalates. Additionally, human security guards can provide guidance and support to individuals on the property, helping to calm the situation and provide a sense of security. Autonomous devices, while able to detect and respond to threats, are not able to provide this level of personal interaction.
One way that traditional human security guards and autonomous security robots can work together effectively is by utilizing the strengths of both. Autonomous devices can be used to continuously monitor for potential threats and alert human security guards or monitoring staff of any suspicious activity. Human security guards can then assess the situation and take appropriate action, while also providing a personal touch and reassurance to individuals on the property. This combination of technology and human expertise can help to create a more comprehensive and effective security system.
In conclusion, while autonomous security robots have the potential to enhance security and increase efficiency, they are not able to entirely replace traditional human security guards, not quite yet. By integrating both into a comprehensive security system, it is possible to leverage the strengths of both and provide a higher level of protection. Traditional human security guards bring the ability to assess situations, take appropriate action, and provide personal interaction and reassurance, while autonomous devices can continuously monitor for potential threats and alert of any suspicious activity. By working together, traditional human security guards and autonomous security robots can coexist and provide a higher level of protection for properties.
