Buzzwords are important for any industry. These terms not only help you understand the industry when detailed, but also reflect the upcoming new technology related to that particular industry and its roadmap. In short, it helps understand the latest trends and where the industry is heading towards. This article explains the top 6 buzzwords in the security industry that cant be missed in 2021.
1. COVID-19 Applications
The pandemic has changed a lot for modern businesses and the changes are evolving to date. It has big footprints in security industry too. Many leaders in the different industries talk about Artificial Intelligence applied in video surveillance but the year 2020 is a perfect example of how AI is unexpectedly needed and how it can be deployed quickly and flexibly on cameras. We are seeing a sudden deployment of COVID-19 AI applications on the edge. Facemask detection, social distance monitoring, crowd detection, and specialist fever-detecting cameras are some of the examples of using AI on the cameras. The industry needs flexibility and a platform that can grow with all the existing trends.
2. Healthy Buildings
Another buzzword brought in by COVID-19 is “Healthy Buildings”. Right From hospital administrators to apartment associations, factory owners, malls, offices, showrooms, Spas, etc are interested in updating their security controls to AI based systems to enforce social distancing. Creating a healthy building drives long-term success, including improved employee productivity, operational efficiency, and infrastructure flexibility. As a result, we can expect security leaders to continue to prioritize healthy spaces to provide their occupants with a safe and efficient building environment well into the new year.
4. Intelligence Driven Technology
5. Wireless Technology
Wireless 5G technology might also bring in great changes to the security industry. With increasing bandwidth and lower latencies, these technologies enable regular transmission of high quality images with minimal strength loss. Along with this widespread adoption of ultra-high-definition (UHD) cameras brings in a lot of new opportunities for video security.
To add further, the hassle and high installation time required for current wired surveillance systems will add to the success of wireless transmission over 5G. In the forthcoming 5G networks, wireless cameras will bring in a revolution and spread like wild fire. We will be seeing more edge devices connected along with AI applications in remote locations.
6. Cloud Based Solutions
The “clouding” trend for businesses of all sizes is accelerating across the security industry too. From small business markets to enterprise level, more and more businesses today are looking forward towards cost-effective cloud services to extend the flexibility of their operations, deployment, and management.
Cloud-based security systems make use of networking, storage, analytics and management technologies. They make deployment much simpler, easy to maintain since there is no need for local servers and software. This not only saves a significant amount of time but also the costs, while extending or reducing their security systems.
