What is Remote Guarding and How Can it Help Your Business?

As security standards and technologies change, property owners and managers must adapt their security solutions to reflect the increased need for the protection of their staff, assets, and buildings. Actuate’s remote guarding software ensures that employees and patients are protected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is because we use cloud-based AI to simply “upload” the security software into your existing system to easily implement safer, more thorough protection for your facility – without hiring more security staff or overhauling your technology infrastructure.


Physical Security Industry Trends: Predictions for 2022

As an organization that leverages technology to enhance threat detection and increase accuracy in security monitoring, we are constantly looking out for the latest industry advancements and innovations; those redefining norms and setting new industry standards. As security needs and the dynamics of common spaces change over time, it’s vital to remain agile and reevaluate how our technology can be applied to fit those shifting needs.
