Nobody could have imagined that video security cameras, which used to be a subset of man-guarding functions will become so advanced, intelligent and omnipresent. With the advent of AIoT technology, this futuristic idea has become a reality. In the age of AIoT video security cameras and sensors are adding value through smart solutions.
Video Data Insights
The video security systems are moving beyond the security functions and adding value to the core management functions. The huge data pool collated by the video security cameras and providing vital clues to the organizations and decision makers. It is really an amazing revelation for those who perceived security as a cost. The more we dig deep into the video data sets and explore the video analytics, it is becoming very clear that video data is driving the key decisions based on insights across verticals. The video security data is playing a definitive role in Smart Cities, Retail, Banking, Transportation, Oil & Gas, Hospitality, Education and Homeland Security verticals.
The convergence of IoT enabled systems and AI (Artificial Intelligence) applications are transforming the Security Management system into more intelligent and proactive functions with a shorter response time. The AIoT based security solutions are adding value by offering real-time alerts and proactive security solutions. The innovative AIoT based integrated security systems (Video Security Systems) has helped to transform the smart manufacturing sector to the next level.
These days video security cameras are moving beyond the security domain and adding value through business intelligence functions in the banking, retail, real estate, transportation, hospitality, healthcare, Oil & Gas, education and many other verticals. To illustrate the value addition done by intelligent solutions provided by the AI enabled video Security Cameras, here are some applications that show how video security cameras are adding value through Business Intelligence and other valuable inputs.
Enabling Intelligent Solutions
To enable the intelligent solutions you need to have AI enabled video Security cameras, which may help you in different verticals with value added smart solutions.
VIP Customer recognition: For Banking, Hospitality and Retail sector to greet and facilitate the High Net Worth customers.
Smart Retail Solutions with BI platform: For enhancing customer experience and competitive edge smart cameras are equipped with people counting and heat mapping capabilities. They provide real-time awareness of customers’ journeys through the mall or retail shop.
