The Rise of IP-based Video Surveillance

  Open video management systems (VMS) is the preferred choice today for video surveillance as they are independent of proprietorship and closed solutions. This has led to VMS platforms integrating feature-rich software that provides a high level of control and functionality designed to make end users’ lives easier. IP-based cameras record the footages and share it with a network that is connected via the internet. IP cameras are the outputs of the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution. Understanding IP-cameras IP is internet protocol and hence IP-devices can be connected to…

How SMBs Security Benefits from Thermal Cameras?

  Some technologies that seem to be very common now were first used in military fields – such as radar, GPS, and others. However, over time, the technology matured and products can now be put into mass production, resulting in significant cost reductions and making military technology more widely used in general civilian applications. Thermal technology is another example, and possibly the most exciting right now. Here’s why. Thermal technology works on the principle that objects above the absolute zero (-273°C) emit some amount of thermal radiation, or heat. Due…

Five Ways ‘Converged’ Security Benefits Business and Customers

The majority of security systems has been stand-alone – which means they were built to work in an independent and self-contained way. This allowed them to perform specific functions, like recording CCTV footage, or securing a perimeter with intrusion alarms etc. Complex system integrations have been the only way to bring these disparate solutions together to increase security as a whole. The answer to this challenge is technological ‘convergence,’ which essentially refers to the deliberate combination of several disparate or complementary technologies into a single product or solution. For example,…
