Security Innovation - Protect Your Business

In the wake of a health crisis and a series of cyberattacks, people from different spheres - the private sector, civil society or big business - are more concerned about security than ever. It is therefore not surprising that global security spending will rise 12 percent this year.


At the heart of this growth are new technologies and innovations that make security systems more reliable against new threats. The growing concern about cybersecurity is also contributing to this. At the same time, the physical security of the premises remains of key importance.



Of course, no software will of allow you to deal with threats such as a fire, natural disaster, theft, vandalism or terrorism.


Data-driven smart algorithms


Fortunately, rapid digitalization and software innovations are helping physical security tools to better deal with real threats. Analyzing datasets enables security personnel to identify hidden patterns and take appropriate action. We owe this to smart algorithms that analyze large amounts of data collected by security systems and help make decisions to ensure maximum security.


With the emerging variety of such analytic tools, consumers can get the most out of their investment and make major changes to their approach and methodology for indoor security.



In connection with the emergence of new safety requirements, we propose to take a look at the main changes that new technologies have brought.


1. Multilayered perception


Gone are the days when security officials only relied on their eyes. In addition, not all modern threats can be seen with the naked eye. Safety factors such as humidity, temperature or pressure can also play a role.


With digitalization, increased sensitivity of UV sensors and smart algorithms, new security systems can use multiple sensors and enhance the capabilities of video surveillance systems.


Such systems are also capable of detecting any movement at various distances with high accuracy. After that, the built-in radar can detect and track the movement of objects at a distance of up to 100 meters, and sometimes more.


2. Smart security technologies


Features amid a pandemic, smart video technology brings tremendous value in helping companies keep their employees and customers safe.


Thanks to AI-tools modern cameras can monitor any place through which many people pass. This makes it much easier for room administrators to adhere to security protocols, including social distancing, wearing masks, temperature screening, and traffic control..



In this way, employees and visitors can avoid unnecessary physical contact. That is possible thanks to contactless access control systems, that uses facial recognition or biometric authentication, special applications for storing mobile cards and QR codes.



3. Robotization in physical security


Since the capabilities of robotic technologies in the field of security are not limited, robots can already solve tasks such as video surveillance, patrolling, detecting violations and transmitting important messages or data to security personnel.


In addition, these systems can detect open doors or the appearance of unauthorized visitors. They also alert facility managers to issues such as leaking pipes or faulty equipment.


What does it mean for security industry professionals?


The emergence of new needs and technologies in the field of security is fueled by the constant growth of demand for particularly reliable products. There is no doubt that technologies such as robotics, AI and biometric authentication will be at the heart of the building security of the future.



The introduction of such new technologies to ensure security in 2021 will create new business opportunities and competitive advantages for companies.
