Modern video surveillance systems provide real-time and archived high-resolution imagery right at your fingertips. Access from a mobile device such as a smartphone is just one of the many benefits of modern security camera systems. Camera systems can now use Artificial Intelligence, or AI, to analyze the information they see and, based on pre-determined rules, notify administrators and security staff of unauthorized behavior throughout the investigative process.
Using the new capabilities of video surveillance can have a significant impact on security, employee and visitor safety, and operational efficiency.
Entrances and Integration with Access Control
The Integration of video surveillance deployed at entrances and exits with other security systems provides video feeds linked to specific events that are important to the security team. The deployment of AI can eliminate hours or days of slow investigation following an incident. Likewise, AI from video streams processes in real-time for alerts or when manual verification is required to allow access. People loitering unnecessarily near doorways can be detected with video analytics, sending an alert to security to investigate.
Retail and Hospitality
Video surveillance not only deters shoplifting and employee theft, but also provides detailed behavioral data for marketing teams. Video analytics can be used to create a dashboard, showing shopper behavior through heat maps overlaid on the store diagram. Additionally, management can use the same analytics to activate alerts when doors are blocked or lines are growing at the checkout area. Hospitality organizations can use video feeds to evaluate how well guests are engaged.
Manufacturing and Logistics
Video camera systems can also play a key role in reducing employee risk and injury in industrial applications. Processes can be observed and recorded for real-time or post-incident review. Video analytics can alert workers with visual or audio indicators when they cross virtual safety boundaries and get near dangerous equipment.
Workers in healthcare settings can use video feeds to monitor hallways and exits. Patients wandering can be found and returned to the safety of their room. Emergency departments are potential sources of volatile situations from patients, families, and friends who are often gathered under stressful situations. Monitoring these areas is an important security and safety measure. Additionally, video analytics can create an alert when too many people are waiting, prompting administrators to evaluate staffing levels.
Buildings occupied by multiple entities have unique needs. Staff security and safety is critical. Keep tabs on packages, during or after hours, to prevent unnecessary operational delays.
A comprehensive vulnerability assessment and site survey uncovers potential threats and opportunities for operational improvement. The resulting security plan will prescribe a unified security and emergency notification solution. Unified solutions integrate a variety of technologies that provide security for occupants, video surveillance for live monitoring and recording, access control for doors, and clear voice annunciation.
There’s not a one-size-fits-all technology solution that can guarantee 100% safety. However, an experienced security organization will give you a significant advantage. A security Solutionist can visit your location and work with administrators and security staff to devise a tailored, comprehensive solution.
