Security is Critical Technology – Choose Companies with Trusted Records
Most people don't often think about how technology products are engineered, how much of their components are manufactured offshore, and where and how the software is developed. When it comes to security products, these factors are critical. If your organization is investing in a security solution, you want to trust the company, the technology within, and that the company will be around for support and future technology updates.
ASAP Security Services works with Avigilon for advanced, artificial intelligence-powered security solutions. Why trust Avigilon for your advanced security and video analytics solutions in Houston, TX? Let’s explore the Avigilon difference below.
Smarter Video Surveillance for Better Security
Video technology has been around for a long time. In the “analog” days, lots of footage would be captured, but detecting something was mostly a human affair. Digital video brought in many advances, not the least of which was better ways to store vast amounts of video footage and the ability to get to a particular timeframe quickly.
In the past few years, video surveillance has been transformed by artificial intelligence and machine learning technology. Machine learning is just what it sounds like, using sophisticated software algorithms to enable machines to detect patterns and "learn" independently, without specific programming for every occurrence that might be encountered.
Read on to see how artificial intelligence has made video surveillance far more proactive and useful, enabling new levels of security for your Bellaire, TX premises.
How Video Analytics Systems Help Maintain Social Distancing
Are you a user of Google Photos? Or the Photos App on your iPhone or other Apple device? Did you know you could search for pictures of your dog in your photo library? Or that you can search for people? Chances are you already do this regularly or know about it. Today's consumer security cameras also have varying levels of facial and pet recognition.
That capability has taken many years of software development to perfect and make available in a way that works consistently. It is a combination of powerful hardware, sophisticated software algorithms, and cloud computing. All the sharing that we do of photos and videos has accelerated the development of these technologies, as analyzing petabytes of data helps perfect the software algorithms.
That same advanced technology may hold the key to helping combat the spread of COVID-19. One of the challenges in maintaining social distancing is keeping tabs on the number of people in a given location. It can and has been done manually, but for large venues and facilities with multiple entrances, it becomes a daunting challenge. Fortunately, some forthcoming occupancy control system solutions may help respond to the problem.
Read on to learn how video analytics technology for occupancy control can help curb the spread in Houston and major locations throughout Texas.
