Your sentence is in a form of the progressive which is formed by a conjugated form of the verb "estar" accompanied by a gerund.

Vigilando = gerund (present participle) of "vigilar"

Te = object pronoun

Vigilando + te = vigilándote

Here are some reference articles that should be helpful: Progressive, gerunds, direct object pronouns
