: Video Surveillance: How Can AI Help Evolve it

Companies can use intelligent video surveillance to employ a small team of remote monitors to keep an eye on many sites.

FREMONT, CA: The security sector is approaching a critical juncture. Organizations have depended on a tried-and-true playbook to govern how they deploy resources, build solutions, and adopt technology for decades. However, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are rapidly changing the security landscape, and below is how video surveillance is transforming.

Maximize Scale Economies

Legacy security systems did not inspire confidence in the accuracy of notifications because of so many false positives. Worse, stray leaves or flashes of light might trigger hundreds of warnings per night, far too many to respond to in a timely manner. AI-powered technologies lower the frequency of false positives, allowing security personnel to staff more efficiently. Companies can use intelligent video surveillance to employ a small team of remote monitors to keep an eye on many sites. They can also utilize smart platforms to connect with trespassers or troublemakers in real-time and, if necessary, contact law enforcement or emergency responders.

Embrace Flexible Setups

Before recent technological breakthroughs, most security systems merely included motion sensors that sent out alarms when a certain percentage of pixels on a screen changed. As a result, security personnel spent a significant amount of time fine-tuning the camera arrangement to reduce false positives. One could avoid falling leaves or passing headlights, setting off alerts in an extremely laborious and time-consuming method. However, it came at the cost of limiting the field of view and leaving specific locations vulnerable to attacks.

One does not have to compromise with AI. Smart systems can distinguish between individuals, animals, and objects and send out alerts based only on those signs, regardless of video noise such as blowing leaves, spotlights, poor weather, or other circumstances. This capacity allows concentrating solely on the security objectives, thus, enabling one to widen their field of view as needed.

As a result of the increased flexibility, new options for adaptation and evolution have arisen. Security in the new era will have to anticipate new threats and hazards. Leading-edge professionals will make use of the additional setup flexibility to try out new ideas and be proactive.
