Future of Inspections

Future of Inspections

Inspections have changed over time and they continue to change with advances in technology. There are a lot of trends and buzzwords being used right now that have the potential to impact how inspections are performed in the future. We’ve all heard of these buzzwords but understanding what they mean at a basic level may be a bit challenging, so we’re going to walk you through the latest trends, discuss their strengths and make you aware of their pitfalls and things to consider.  Trends include: Internet of Things (IoT) Analytics and Big Data Drones Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) Internet of Things (IoT) IoT is a giant network of things/devices that are connected to the internet.

To fulfill this duty, security guards conduct frequent checks of specified locations such as mechanical/electrical rooms, stairwells and floors under construction. Documenting guard patrols is just as important as the patrol itself. Technology has come a long way to simplify these processes. To understand where the future of guard patrolling is heading, it’s helpful to step back and recall how it has evolved. The most primitive form of conducting a patrol is when the security guard goes to each location and uses his or her senses
