Video Analytics

In 2022 video analytics is further being introduced into the CCTV sector. Due to the volume of CCTV footage a commercial premises capture it can be near impossible to monitor, review and analyse CCTV costs effectively. If certain footage isn’t reviewed security mistakes and suspicious behaviour may not get picked up leading to further incidents. Video analytic software produces a rough overview of what happened in a specific period, it can provide information such as a list of personnel, the cars which were included in the video and other important objects involved within the CCTV footage. These features allow you to gain a rough overview of what happened during a specific period of time and whether further investigation is needed.

Video analytics can also help businesses improve health and safety by monitoring an incident that has happened and then setting up precautions to prevent it from happening again. Additionally, retail stores can use analytics to analyse the times a store has the most amount of traffic through the day to improve the placement of products and sales.

AI Technology

AI technology is a term used to describe the application of artificial intelligence technology in various industries.

AI has already started to help identify certain objects with heat monitoring, this means it will ignore any unnecessary objects and will identify the threats. As the quality of AI increases in the future, it means that CCTV systems will be more self-reliant, increasing their usability and reducing the man-hours needed to manage CCTV systems.

Zero Trust Networks

As we advance into the future cyber-attacks become more regular and common, battling these can be hard if you have a weak network and have no knowledge on how to fight them. Zero Trust networks are networks where each device and app which connects to that network is sequentially assessed to access it every time it connects. This means anyone who accesses your network which is connected to your system is registered from their devices meaning you know who has accessed your network at any time. Zero Trust networks can help add another layer of security to a CCTV system.

The rise of IoT

As the digital age continues to grow features such as IoT (internet of things) continue to even grow even more, as CCTV systems become more advanced and larger making sure they work as efficiently as possible is essential to a successful security system. IoT stands for the physical objects incorporated into the software, for example, an alarm connected to your security camera is your IoT, meaning that if the alarm goes off the security camera will change its view to look at that location. IoT is advanced software that can highly benefit your security system as it allows your security system to work more efficiently and remotely monitor certain areas at different times.
