Physical security has historically been slow to adopt automation and technology compared with its cyber counterpart. This is now changing, as cloud-based surveillance tools and video analytics platforms have emerged. These tools integrate with existing camera systems and apply technologies such as AI, facial recognition, and cloud computing to help users extract more from security videos, supporting real-time analysis or future investigations. These solutions also help proactively identify suspicious behavior, while traditional solutions were more reactive and primarily used to record crime.
Businesses are leveraging cloud-based surveillance, analytics, and access control solutions that integrate with existing traditional camera systems to deliver real-time remote monitoring and access control. For consumers, do-it-yourself (DIY) security kits are trending; these can be installed without professional help and feature remote monitoring and notifications to detect abnormal activity.
