Mid-Year Check-in: Surveillance Trends to Watch for in 2022

2022 has been an eventful year for the security industry thus far. The COVID-19 pandemic remains an issue, global supply chains are strained, and inflation drastically affects prices across every sector. But despite these challenges, we prevail with more innovative, efficient, and proactive solutions to continue to shape the future of surveillance technology. To provide a glimpse into the technology that is helping to shape this future, here are a few trends in the surveillance market that you’ll want to pay close attention to:

Artificial Intelligence

Integrating AI with surveillance systems is commonly regarded as the “next big thing” in the security industry. Combining artificial intelligence with surveillance software provides cameras with deep learning capabilities, allowing surveillance systems to analyze footage without human intervention. When AI becomes a widespread selling point on the market, we can likely expect improvements in facial recognition and faster forensic analysis.

Cloud-Based Solutions

Cloud-based solutions have become increasingly popular over the last few years and are only becoming more essential as time goes on. The cloud has proven to be an innovative and reliable solution for data storage. As businesses move further into the digital age, cloud-based solutions are becoming more of a must-have in virtually every market for their mobility and flexibility, compatibility with access control solutions, and redundancy.

IoT Integration

The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to devices that can be controlled remotely via a device, most commonly smartphones. Some of the main advantages of IoT integration is the ability to access cameras, appliances, and other devices remotely from virtually anywhere with an internet connection, as well as compatibility between one’s security system and various access control devices, making integration noticeably faster and easier.

These three innovations are becoming more common selling points in the surveillance industry for their various practical applications. We can only expect to see more developments in these areas as they grow in demand amongst customers, so be sure to keep an eye out as they continue to evolve.
