Well, today one of the basic facets of any business is Security and surveillance. There are risks in the world: that is associated with personal and assets risks. Though there has been much new debate about the proper use of surveillance, it is clear to say that some security and surveillance are essential in today’s business.
Security and surveillance solutions hold everything from the most naive home monitoring systems and thief alarms to high-definition, motion-detecting cameras and retina scanning security solutions. Many kinds of connectivity – both fixed-line and wireless – let know about the basic type of M2M security solutions.
When data from the solutions are aggregated and interpreted to divine behavior or prevent crimes, and we can move these data on popular platforms and devices – including mobile devices – we have reached the realm of the Internet of Things (IoT).
According to Statista, “The total installed base of Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices worldwide is projected to amount to 30.9 billion units by 2025, a sharp jump from the 13.8 billion units expected in 2021.”
These cover device connections in homes and businesses. Now, very many security and surveillance systems – particularly those in homes – are disconnected. We expect an improvement over the next ten years of the percentage of this sort of home system connected.
We also require an improvement in the number of connected security & surveillance solutions in developing geographic markets. As business conditions increase the overall wealth levels in emerging markets, we expect homes and businesses to discover it needed to secure their surroundings better. While we do not expect the overall approval rate of connected security solutions in rising markets to surpass that of developed markets, the overall size of the growing markets makes them very beautiful for service providers and merchants of domestic and commercial security and surveillance solutions.
For the next ten years, we predict an improved emphasis on four features of security and surveillance solutions – and these four features highlight the differences we see from an M2M to an IoT world:
We predict improved dependence on IP as the carrier medium for security and surveillance solutions. This increased dependence on a common protocol like IP will assist in adding new solutions and services, including several home management solutions, video-based surveillance, facial recognition solutions, and others, and assist in analyzing various solutions. Adopting simple and easily available communications rules will simplify deployments and more moderate overall costs for these solutions. In an IoT system, we expect dependence on IP as the underlying protocol.
Costlier bandwidth speeds and patterned uses for facial recognition and advanced movement identification make video-based surveillance solutions more popular in residences and companies.
Alliance with other residence and business automation systems
We predict residence and commercial security and surveillance solutions combined with other systems, such as home energy management; security of uniquely tagged, helpful household and business assets; and developing automation solutions. These wrap-up solutions with a common user interface will combine innocence with the customer experience and give customers a richer set of knowledge. We expect vendors of traditional domestic and business alarm systems will be the most likely agents of these types of open solutions.
Mobile device access
Many residential and business consumers of security and surveillance solutions expect the ability to view security and surveillance data – whether historical records or real-time actions – using ordinary mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Offering mobile device integration is becoming increasingly important due to the rise of mobile devices and active application developer communities.
We anticipate service providers and vendors of security & surveillance solutions to continue to deliver creative solutions that include equipment, software, mobile tools, connection, video, and customer support/monitoring services. We expect these service providers to use more apps that model, predict, and immediately alert monitoring facilities to potential security threats. The transition from M2M to IoT is being signaled by this shift toward integrated services and applications.
