Facts about Conventional Guard System
Conventional guard system usually involves manual data collection, which means that the data can be tempered with, to present a much desired report to the boss and the client. Hence, you might receive a doctored report instead of the honest one just so you are satisfied with the report and pay the company accordingly.
Conventional security guard equipments do not have the capability to emit the data to the control room on the spot. Hence, you can only get the data or information at the end of a shift. This is not enough when the real-time data is readily provided by some other services, and accessible from anywhere through browsers.
Data remains as data and it’s not as useful unless it can be interpreted into reports that can be used to keep the customers safe and the assets protected.

Hardware is expensive and investing money on unnecessary hardware would only cost you money but it doesn't equate effectiveness.
