The President of the Security Services Organization Association (GÜSOD), Levent Güler says, "Although the use of new technologies seems to reduce human employment to a certain extent, ultimately, those who use and control these systems are people, these systems have an increasing effect on the quality of the personnel, minimizing human error." .
The development of technology enables new solutions to be offered in every sector. One of the areas where technology has broken ground is the private security sector. Among the technological solutions that have come to the fore in the private security sector recently; drone use, thermal and action cameras, HES code query software and cameras with video analysis system stand out.

The rapid transformation in technology continues to affect almost every industry directly. The private security sector, where advanced technology is widely used, is among the areas most affected by this rapid transformation in technology.
Security solutions stand out with thermal cameras
According to the information provided by the President of GÜSOD, Levent Güler, the oldest and pioneering non-governmental organization in the sector, among the technological solutions whose use has increased the most recently; drone, thermal and action cameras, HES code query software and cameras with video analysis system are the leading ones.
With the pandemic process, the tendency for human contact to decrease, instead of human, technological solutions came to the fore. This development enabled the integration of thermal camera and security solutions to existing solutions. Today; By integrating a thermometer to turnstile, card access systems and not allowing passage automatically for high fever, it became possible thanks to these integrations.
Video analysis software offers early and effective intervention
Another prominent technological solution of the last period is video analysis software. These software turn every camera into an alarm system. Video analysis software, which enables the detection of any negativity with the defined rules, ensures that the negative situation is automatically dropped in front of the operator at the remote monitoring center as a video alarm.
In many cases, such as perimeter border violation, suspicious package, idle man, lost object, wrong parking and reverse direction, negative situations can be detected in advance by defining video analysis rules. Thanks to these software, it is now possible to create early and effective intervention opportunities and prevent incidents by either making remote announcements or directing the response units to the incident scene.
In parallel with new technology solutions; It is also possible to make sense of big data and data and turn them into data. It is predicted that the crime rates in the predictable security area can decrease significantly by analyzing and interpreting the data with artificial intelligence and enhanced intelligence solutions.
The "human factor" will continue to play an active role in the private security sector.
Emphasizing that technology is not a goal but a tool, GÜSOD President Levent Güler said, “The right solution in the private security sector; They are solutions where people, information and technology come together. In other words, the human factor will continue to be among these solutions. We believe that people should always continue to play an active role in the correct construction and use of information and technology. Today, we have the opportunity to offer both more economical, better quality and effective solutions by using advanced technology ”.
Turkey, the situation in many European countries later in the software development
Pointing out that 95% of the technologies used in the Private Security Sector are imported, Güler said, “The; Most of the alarm, camera and access control systems are imported. However, there are good examples in Turkey in software, there are positive developments in this area in recent years. Especially in software development technologies, we are ahead of many European countries. When compared to European security system, we can say that Turkey uses advanced technology as "he continued.
