The RoboGuard: New Product

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Oct 15, 2014

ASIS loves robots (apparently).

First, the Vigilus patrol robot won an award in 2012, and now, Senstar's RoboGuard, an automated fence patrol system, has won in 2014. But the question remains: can these robots practically and cost effectively replace human guards? In this note, we look at RoboGuard, its features and functions, cost of implementation, and how it compares to manned patrols.
