Security is an important aspect of all governmental and private commercial activities. Therefore, we find that many parties pay attention to it and allocate an independent budget for it that is increasing year after year. Where these companies and institutions must be secured from all current and future risks and also have the ability to manage and monitor all aspects of security related to buildings, systems and networks. In the following lines, we will learn about the latest technologies of security systems and surveillance cameras for the business sector and how they integrate together to achieve safety for your business.
With the development and evolution of security risks permanently, traditional security monitoring systems are not sufficient to provide adequate security, especially for shops from companies, government institutions, schools, hospitals, and others. Therefore, a set of systems have been devised that provide the best possible levels of security, represented in the following:
It is one of the security systems to control the traffic in the doors when entering and leaving the building of the institution, or specific parts, for example, offices, stores or other sections that contain information or possessions of high confidentiality. It protects the organization from many risks of theft and entry of unauthorized persons. With automatic barrier system for gates to regulate the entry of vehicles into the building.
This system is an effective alternative to traditional entry systems that rely on the use of keys, guards, reception staff, or even access card systems that are known for their high operating costs. It relies on state-of-the-art fingerprint controls (finger, eye and face) and also integration with mobile phones for easy access.
When talking about the latest security monitoring systems, it is necessary to refer to the warning system that alerts officials in the event of intrusion, suspicious activity, or any other incident that threatens the security of the institution. For example, this type of system works to protect the building in the event of intrusion from the back door or breaking one of the locks for the purpose of theft or vandalism. This system is also used to warn in the event of fire and disasters, and it can also call the police when there is an alarm.
This system has been developed to integrate with mobile phones to control the system and receive notifications, as well as work with a group of other systems such as cybersecurity in order to add more protection to the organization’s data.
Security surveillance cameras add another degree of security to all the systems that we knew earlier by adding the visual aspect of the monitoring process, and photographing all the events that take place inside the institution’s building and then arranging, organizing and saving them in a storage space, which may be cloud. This enables you to watch videos from anywhere and see what is happening inside the building in real time from a distance.
Also, this type of security control system is integrated with a group of other systems to add more security to the institution, for example, when an unauthorized person tries to enter the institution’s building, in this case, alerts will be sent to the concerned person with a depiction of what is happening through the advanced security camera system which operates at night.
With the digital transformation that the world is witnessing today, all institutions and companies have a presence on the Internet, taking advantage of the advantages of speed and high efficiency in executing tasks. But this does not mean that there are no security risks or problems that these institutions may face. Today, cyber attacks are present and increasing, which forces these institutions to search for solutions to keep their data and information in a safe place.
Here, the cybersecurity system represents one of the effective solutions to secure the presence of digital institutions through the use of a range of modern technologies. This system also works to protect various systems in the organization, for example the Internet of Things (IoT) systems. While the door control system manages the process of entering and exiting the building, the cyber security system controls and protects server and data access, through firewalls, data encryption and antivirus programs.
With the development of risks and crime, it has become necessary to develop the current security systems and make them more effective and integrated, and here the so-called Internet of Things (IoT security) security systems have been developed, which consists of a network of security systems and smart devices to work with each other and exchange data over the Internet without any human intervention, Where this type of system always consists of a wireless network and huge cloud databases to save and process data as quickly as possible with sensors and data processing software. And various devices that start from surveillance cameras to DNA analyzers to integrate among themselves. For example, when an intrusion into the institution building occurs, an alarm is issued, then the doors are closed, cameras are directed to the scene of the accident, and the security authorities are notified, all in a very short time.
The machine has also been introduced into the process of securing institutions and companies through the so-called artificial intelligence (AI) security, where the insurance process has become fully automated for machines and smart devices to understand the behaviors of the people present and then begin to identify safe and harmful behaviors, through the use of a set of Algorithms and pre-collected data provide permanent and secure security.
As a development, there are newer and more effective techniques such as deep learning to identify behaviors according to an approach inspired by the biological structure and function of neurons in the brain through the so-called artificial neural networks. Relying on massive amounts of networks and data that makes machine thinking like or simulate a security man; To detect threats, manage alerts, and fully automate responses.
It is worth noting that security monitoring systems need a good internet connection to operate at their maximum capacity and provide more effective security control. Therefore, the fifth generation 5G connection certainly represents a revolution and a real development in the security systems industry, especially as it will provide the opportunity to transmit and send huge capacities of data at a high speed to be able to obtain high-resolution imaging and sensing and faster data processing with the use of the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and deep learning smoothly and improve their performance.
We also mentioned earlier that surveillance cameras are one of the important security monitoring systems because they add a layer of security to security systems and allow watching what is going on in all parts of the organization or company in real time. But this industry has changed and evolved. Therefore, you will find many options and in the following points we will show you the most important surveillance camera technologies available now:
This type is the best surveillance camera for organizations that want a stable and permanent service that extends for weeks and months, as it relies on wired connection via cables, to transfer data through it to digital video recorders (DVRs). They are very popular today, especially among organizations that want comprehensive coverage and a wider spread of cameras.
But the downside is that its cost is a bit high compared to other types of systems such as wireless cameras, because wires must be provided, connected and deployed throughout the plant. A power outage may also cause it to stop working unless you connect it to another backup power source.
In the event that the company or organization needs more flexibility while reducing the costs of the camera system, wireless cameras are the most appropriate based on connection through Wi-Fi or the Internet to transfer data to the source and at the same time provide the opportunity to watch videos remotely through a phone or device Computer.
Despite the many features it provides, sometimes it may not provide good image quality due to outages in Wi-Fi or the Internet, with the possibility of digital attacks.
This type of camera uses a CCTV system, relying on data and video transmission via coaxial cable. Limited features and capabilities when it comes to analytics, data logging, and image quality.
Whereas analog CCTV cameras work through coaxial cables in a closed circuit, digital IP camera systems connect to the network and transmit data and video over the Internet and can be accessed from a remote location. This makes it easy to install with high video quality up to 4K, better zoom capabilities and security than traditional camcorder systems, but they are more expensive.
With the presence of many companies providing security monitoring systems services, a comparison must be made between the offered options in order to be able to get the best possible option, and for that you should pay attention to the following:
Integration with other systems:
This feature is one of the enhanced aspects of each system, as it allows it to integrate with other systems and provide a higher degree of protection for the organization and commercial activity. Which means it’s a good idea to choose a company that offers the integration options you want and with the systems that you consider important.
Ease of installation:
It is also necessary for the security control system to be easy to install, set up, and adjustable and developed so that you do not need to change it completely every time.
In addition to the initial costs of the system, you must also take into account the cost of periodic maintenance, and if the system is based on subscriptions, in this case you must study it extensively and make sure that it is within your budget.
There is no security monitoring system that is free from errors or malfunctions, this is certainly possible, but the important aspect that must be taken care of is whether the company provides good and professional customer service to fix problems that occur before any security problem occurs?
