Artificial intelligence (AI) is an interrupter that will have a major impact on the security industry when it hooks up with the analytic data generated from security devices. These physical security devices are becoming more commonly found in a variety of vertical markets.
A new protocol for designing a video surveillance system with camera placement on the outside perimeter facing inward is being deployed by the Compton Unified School District (USD) Police Department.
Advances in security technology are being realized thanks to the development of smart sensors. But what exactly is a “smart” sensor?
The need for continuous protection across all areas of attack is bringing together information technology (IT), physical security, and cybersecurity working as one team. By using security systems, integrated network electronic technology is proving to be a valuable tool in business operations as well.
The physical security industry as a whole needs open systems if integration is to deliver its full potential. Networked communication between alarm systems and the central monitoring station is heading in the direction of other converged systems that use IP-enabled technology.
The Video Management Software (VMS) market is expected to more than double to 10.54 billion U.S. dollars (USD) by 2021. Video management is an important aspect of the video monitoring system. Demand for high-quality video processing, globally increasing security concerns, and other factors are fueling the growth of the VMS market.
Out with the old and in with the new. It’s that time of year to reevaluate security policies, programs, and protection.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) provides a flexible and convenient means of powering devices that are located in out-of-the-way locations. It also saves time and money, eliminating the expense and difficulty of direct electrical wiring.
Immediate access to video resources at any time from any location is driving the increased use of video streaming in the commercial enterprise security market. Organizations enlisting streamed video need to take into consideration a wide range of techniques and requirements.
The degree to which hotels will venture into newer technologies may have to be reevaluated. Does technology improve the guest experience or do guests value human interaction over convenience?
