How Video Analytics Can Help You
The old idea of a video surveillance system is of a security guard sitting in a booth watching the security camera feed live, hoping to catch suspicious activity. This model relies on having a live person watching and reviewing all your video, however, which is not practical or efficient. Different security guards may have differing levels of focus or different ideas of suspicious activity.
Video management software changes this system by using software to monitor your video feed around the clock, alerting you to activity so you only need to watch the cameras when something happens. This will help you best utilize your surveillance system, saving you time and effort.
Video analytics can be used for:
- Motion detection
- Facial recognition & license plate reading
- People counting & dwell time monitoring for retail stores
- Recognizing long lines at checkout and sending alerts
- And more – Contact our video surveillance experts today to get personalized recommendations for your needs!

Video analytics is an important enabler of any strategy to substantially improve levels of security, as well as offering clear business advantages beyond security. It acts as the ‘brains’ of a security system, using metadata to add sense and structure to captured video footage. In effect, each network video camera becomes smart, enabling them to understand what they’re seeing and alerting guards to any potential threats the moment an alarm rule is met, significantly increasing security levels. They can even decide which information to stream to reduce network strain. Because they can provide all kinds of statistics in the form of metadata, cameras featuring built-in video analytics also enable a scene to be analyzed for reasons that go far beyond security. Making it possible to make smarter business decisions, reduce costs and increase efficiency with a return on investment that can be measured through tangible business results.
