The end of traditional burglar alarms is near
Businesses of all sizes will move away from traditional contact or motion based burglar alarms in favor of video verifying alarms to avoid the disruption and unnecessary costs associated with false alarms. We’ll also find out that AI-based video verified alarms are poised to take modern alarm surveillance operations to a whole different level of accuracy and efficiency. The AI-based deep learning algorithms built into the cameras can now detect people (human movement) and cars while filtering out all other movement like shadows and trees as well as animals and wind. This is about to be a game-changer for live surveillance operations, as operators can now rely on AI-based motion detection to alert them of people in areas where they shouldn’t. be located. With so many camera streams to watch out for, AI-powered analytics effectively act as a second pair of eyes that never sleep and never miss an event. This ensures that live surveillance operators don’t lose their attention on false alarms.
ORC will drive the growth of interactive audio and video surveillance
The recently released NRF 2021 Retail Security Survey found that nearly 7 in 10 (69%) retail loss prevention and asset protection professionals said the pandemic had resulted in increased overall risk to their organization. As the uncertainty of the health crisis continues to hang over the retail industry, loss prevention and security professionals are reporting that retail organized crime (CRO) and, in some places, opportunistic looting is on the increase. As retail organized crime gangs continue to display high levels of assault and violence, businesses will increasingly look to providers of interactive audio and video surveillance as an extension of their own. internal teams. With live video and two-way audio capabilities, trained security personnel can see, hear and communicate with store workers 24/7. This solution improves staff security and guarantees the security of business premises.
Businesses will turn their security cameras into powerful business intelligence tools to improve customer experience and maximize sales
Since budgets are likely to remain tight in 2022, there will be a greater demand for demonstrable results from any type of technology investment. Forward-thinking companies will maximize the return on their security investments by extracting operational insights from the data generated by their security cameras and surveillance solutions. Large distributed enterprises will increasingly leverage their use of video to move beyond traditional security applications and use video analytics for business intelligence, as well as health and safety compliance. When a business truly understands the behaviors of its customers by collecting key information, it can then tailor each customer touchpoint to maximize customer satisfaction, increase sales revenue, and improve operational efficiency. Video analytics can help retailers optimize store layouts, make critical merchandising decisions, correlate customer traffic to online campaigns, identify staffing bottlenecks, test new store designs or to compare the effectiveness of in-store campaigns.
