Technology and security

At PGC Security, we’re big fans of having a bit of fun- but when it comes to keeping our clients safe, we take things very seriously. That’s why we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to protect the people and businesses we serve. 

Technology and security

Technology is crucial in modern security solutions and as an industry leader, we want to make sure our clients know just how much tech can help.

When we think about the role of technology in security, there’s really no denying just how much things have changed over the last few decades. 

Traditional methods that once relied on human intervention- like security guards and patrols- are slowly but surely getting replaced by digital solutions that can often be more efficient and effective. Although, there is still a place for these traditional roles – check out our article on Security Cameras vs Security Guards here.

Whether it’s real-time data analysis or remote access, technology is quickly becoming a key factor in modern security solutions.

So what does technology and security look like in practice? 

At PGC Security, we’re all about providing our clients with tailored solutions to help you stay safe and secure. So, let’s have a quick look at three of the most popular and effective tools being used in the world of technology and security.

3 popular security tools

1. Video Surveillance

We’ve come a long way since CCTV cameras were first introduced. Now, with advanced cameras, better image quality, and more options for storage, video surveillance is a far more powerful tool than ever before. 

Modern video surveillance systems can also distinguish between humans and animals, allow you to set the right sensitivity levels, and detect faces in a crowd. 

These features can be very helpful when it comes to locations that have a large number of people such as stadiums, airports, or shopping malls.

If you’re looking to take your security to the next level, in touch with PGC Security. We’ll help you find the perfect video surveillance system that meets your needs and budget. 

2. Access Control Systems

Restricting access to sensitive areas is a huge part of modern security, and access control systems are an increasingly popular way to make that happen. 

This is the technology that keeps your premises secure, allowing only authorised personnel to enter a building or area.

From biometric readers and facial recognition software to keypads, access control systems are an essential part of modern-day security and can even be integrated with other solutions such as video surveillance.

By customising permissions based on the time of day, location, or other factors, you can make sure only authorised personnel have the ability to access certain areas of your business. Talk to us about the right access control system for your security needs. 

3. Alarm Systems

These days, alarm systems aren’t just the noisy boxes you might be used to – they’re digital solutions that rely on high-tech sensors to detect things like motion, heat, and sound. 

With real-time notifications, businesses can respond quickly and effectively in the event of a potential security incident. 

At PGC Security, our alarm systems are designed to help you stay ahead of the curve. We can install and monitor state-of-the-art alarms that will detect any unusual activity and alert you immediately. 

Benefits of technology and security

So, with all these high-tech options to choose from, what are the benefits of technology when it comes to security? 

In our experience, there are some clear advantages:

Enhanced Security

Technology can provide enhanced security compared to traditional security measures. 

Real-time alerts and the ability to monitor premises around the clock means you can feel confident in the security coverage of your business even when you’re not physically present.


Although there can be up-front costs associated with installing technologically advanced security solutions, we believe the long-term savings are often worth it. 

When you consider the reduction in personnel needed to carry out security tasks, technical and digital solutions are often a more cost-effective choice- both in terms of salaries and benefits, as well as operating costs.

Increased Productivity

By introducing digital and technological security into your business it can make things easier, more efficient, and more productive for your business. 

For example, access control systems can help automate tasks and save time. This means you can focus more closely on your core operations instead of having to worry about security issues.
