For the best part of the 20th century, Watchclocks tracked security guards on patrol to ensure that they were on duty. It’s a method that was universally adopted across the globe. So how did it work?

The Watchclock consisted of a numbered key, which was carried to each checkpoint by the guard. The key would have to be manually punched by guards to record a number on a strip of paper that had the time pre-printed on it.

However, security teams had to drive all over town delivering and collecting paper timesheets from sites, which was expensive, and time-consuming. It was also not good for the environment due to excessive use of vehicles, fuel, and paper.

Consequently, over the last decade, the Watchclock has become obsolete after the introduction of technology-based reporting systems that save money, render accurate results and are more security-focused.

These security programs allow real-time reporting via email and dashboards and can be accessed by clients from computers anywhere in the world. The sophisticated devices have the option to take and send photos or video combined with text-based reports. 

These programs have GPS tracking capabilities, which ensures that guards are on-site and performing their duties adequately. Therefore, if the security company you hire doesn’t incorporate tracking technology, then you’re not receiving value for money.
