Security robots, or security guards? Which one is best…?

A recent article from Security Magazine got our attention this week, titled, ‘Security Robots on Patrol’.

A lone worker is someone who works by themselves, without direct supervision or close contact. This makes them more vulnerable to certain risks, risks that wouldn’t exist for office employees, for example, who work day in day out as part of a team during ‘normal’ working hours, Monday to Friday.  Lone workers, therefore, might include professionals such as maintenance staff, healthcare professionals, hospitality and, of course, security officers.
