Traditional common sense tells us that there is someone monitoring and looking at every security camera we notice, if not in real-time, then they are watching CCTV recordings later. The truth is, we are seeing more and more systems that might not have a person behind them at all. As we see more surveillance systems rely on artificial intelligence technology, we will be able to reduce the amount of trained security personnel involved in the security industry while still increasing the likelihood of spotting a crime and security breach. What are the main advantages of systems that utilize artificial intelligence, and why are they becoming so prominent? Read on to learn more!
How Artificial Intelligence-Based Security Systems Work
Some types of artificial intelligence-based security systems use something known as machine learning. This allows the cameras to learn and memorize what is normal for and then send alerts based on abnormal activities. It is also possible to program in the types of triggers for the system, for example, a retail store might want to have their security system check for any loiterers specifically and receive alerts when somebody is loitering. One other smart security system, like Gatekeeper’s intelligent vehicle occupant detection system, is capable of comparing what it sees with a reference image to accurately figure out whether or not it is a close match.
Why Count on Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence systems offer some profound benefits. For example, they can operate around the clock without ever getting tired or taking breaks, which means you get more reliable coverage whenever you need it. Artificial intelligence systems are also able to analyze countless amounts of footage through complex algorithms, which allows them to catch details that the human eye could miss. These systems also allow for a more real-time action response, whereas a lot of times, CCTV footage is just used as evidence much later on. Systems that use artificial intelligence might be able to help stop a crime while it is occurring.
As with many new technologies, there are worries about artificial intelligence-based cameras. The first is continuing to improve machine learning and ensuring that these setups are actually sending the correct alerts to security personnel and not overlooking something that might be dangerous.
