The Answer: AI and RVM Will Shake Up the Industry
We see two major trends happening in 2022:
Here’s a more in-depth look at our predictions:
1) AI-Powered Video Data Will Be Used For Purposes Beyond Security –
AI in video surveillance is such a powerful tool, but to gain the most from the technology, users must be able to understand the data it provides and then apply it to their business in a meaningful way.
Knowing this, service providers will change the way AI results and data are delivered to businesses. The goal is to deliver data that is easy to understand and helps them make business decisions.
And, as providers get better at reporting the data, users will be able to better use the data for purposes beyond security. We can see the day where this data will help businesses enforce compliance, prevent false claims, improve customer service and analyze foot traffic to improve sales.
For example, an auto dealer can view video footage and use the data within to identify the time of day most customers shop, the most trafficked areas on the lot, the most popular cars, and much more.
2) RVM Goes Mainstream –
An unintended side effect of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the rapid adoption of RVM services. Businesses across industries needed a way to protect their properties without being on-site, and RVM provided an easy and affordable solution.
In 2022, we’ll continue to see the use of virtual guards catch on as more businesses realize the benefits of having around-the-clock protection, whether someone is physically on-site or not. RVM is no longer the “new kid on the block”; it has emerged as the leading way to deter crime.
Let us leave you with one final thought. Too often, securing your busines comes in low on the priority list. As we approach the end of 2021, make a New Year’s resolution to give video surveillance the time, resources and budget it deserves to keep your business safe.
If you fall victim to a property crime, there is more to consider than just financial losses due to damaged or stolen assets. There’s also the risk of bad publicity, reputation damage and business liability.
To enhance your physical security strategy and reduce your business risk, make video surveillance a priority, not an afterthought in 2022. It will save you time, resources and budget in the long run.
