Surveillance cameras and technology have improved drastically over the past decade. In this Tips and Tricks of the Week episode, we cover the benefits of VICON surveillance cameras. By using advanced camera technology and improved software, companies can gain tremendous business insights and keep their spaces secure.
THE BENEFIT OF IMPROVED SECURITY
When your company prioritizes security by installing surveillance cameras and implementing policies, you demonstrate your commitment to your business’ overall success. Cameras deter theft, help track who is going in and out of your space as well as how long they are inside and generally protect your employees, inventory and property. You’ll also subtly increase your team’s productivity, because a safe workplace inspires trust; when employees don’t have to pay attention to the security of their surroundings, they can devote their full attention to their work. We partner with VICON to provide top of the line surveillance camera solutions.
HOW AI ANALYTICS ENHANCE YOUR CAMERAS’ FUNCTIONS
With VICON’s Advanced Edge Analytics, you will be able to detect movement proactively and receive real-time alerts when an event occurs. AI technology allows companies to understand the following events as they are happening using rules-based software:
- Crowd Detection: when a specified number of people are gathered in a designated area
- Loitering: when someone loiters in a specified area for a specific amount of time
- Suspicious Object Left: when an object is left behind, ideal for public places to detect suspicious objects
- Object Removed: when an object is removed, ideal for loss prevention and securing items
- Intelligent Motion Detection: reduce false alarms from repeated movement like waves, lighting changes or tree movements
- Wrong Direction: ideal for crowd management and traffic surveillance
- Line Cross: when someone or something passes a defined line
