It goes without saying that cameras, NVRs or other security equipment for industrial, transportation or other applications that are critical in nature should be toughened and hardened to withstand extreme conditions. To find out how strong a product is against water or particles, it is better to ref...
Ensuring data redundancy and integrity has become more important than ever, especially as far as video surveillance is concerned. Besides hardening each individual component in the system, the resilience and robustness of the whole system should also be considered.
The total cost of ownership (TCO) is a great tool to calculate the money to be spent on a surveillance project during its entire lifecycle. If the right technology or product is used, it can help save on the TCO to be incurred during the project’s lifetime.
It goes without saying that in surveillance, data integrity and loss time prevention are of utmost importance. Each individual unit that makes up a surveillance system – for example cameras and encoders – should ideally have built-in redundancy and resilience measures.
The access control industry enjoyed growth, albeit by a smaller margin than originally predicated, last year, and the growth trend is expected to grow in 2017, according to market research firm IHS Markit.
More and more, big data generated by security and non-security devices connected over the Internet is used to help users achieve security as well as operational efficiency. In this sense, anonymized location data generated by access control devices can be used to help manage buildings more effective...
As we move into 2017 it is widely known that most legacy access control cards and smart cards in the industry are easily copied and cloned.
Cybersecurity, deep learning, and body-worn cameras were some of the top trends to watch for this year in the video surveillance market, as vendors seek to roll out more secure and more value-added solutions in the midst of intense competition. That’s according to IHS Markit in its latest report.
Identity management has become an important topic given more physical and cyber threats faced by organization nowadays, and more advanced technologies have been rolled out to facilitate users. In this regard, HID Global named mobile credentials, cloud and IoT as some of the top trends in the identit...
PSIM, or security platforms that take feeds from various systems and provide guidelines on how to react in the event of an emergency, has enjoyed a good year in 2016, with greater analytical capabilities, more drone applications, and more federated solutions being cited as some of the top trends.
