Analog security cameras are being replaced for the benefits of high-resolution IP cameras. Even better, modern camera systems provide more than just sharp, high-resolution images. Smart video analytics are a valuable secondary benefit.
Live Alarms and Faster Investigation
As cameras are added to a system, you might expect information overload for real-time alarm information. This was true when cameras were limited to simple motion detection. Today, video analytics provide alarm information given a defined set of behaviors that warrant detection and alert. By moving away from simple motion detection and implementing smart video analytics—such as directional line crossing, multiple line crossing, loitering, and other behavior rules—relevant alarms are consistently delivered, and nuisance alarms are reduced. Investigation footage isn’t impacted by behavior rules programmed for live, real-time alerts and utilizes the same behavior detection for post-incident review. Investigations are streamlined.
While security cameras were traditionally deployed for theft and property damage, video analytics can be used to improve worker safety. For example, line crossing detection built into the security camera system can cause a visible or audible alert when a worker approaches a hazardous area.
Process and Operations Improvement
Operational teams can use security cameras that double as process observation systems. Specific activity inside a warehouse or on a production line can be scrutinized using smart, high resolution cameras. For example, warehouse heat maps, like those commonly used in retail planning, can be generated with the data created and captured by ceiling mounted cameras. The resulting heat map can show paths frequently used by workers, providing critical data about how to better stock goods or components for optimal productivity.
