Implementing video security for commercial companies can be a taxing process for executives and IT staff. Finding a decent security camera to install is not that difficult to do. You can go to your local Costco and buy a 16-camera set in under an hour. The real difficulty, however, reveals itself when you are looking for a scalable solution, that is future proof, and offers the best possible performance for your organization. The truth of the matter is that many of today’s systems are not at all scalable. Sure - you can add more cameras, DVR/NVRs, servers, hard drives - and have “unlimited” scalability, but who wants to spend the time and resources in managing those separate systems?
We continually work to push the envelope when it comes to state-of-the-art security systems, providing you with better coverage, more reliability, and peace of mind. As mentioned in our R2 announcement, we are moving the majority of our video analysis directly to the R2, providing you with all the benefits that edge computing offers. We are excited to announce that the latest firmware for the R2 includes highly optimized neural networks for robust object detection. With that in mind, we would like to share the benefits of on-camera AI and why the R2 is the future of video security.
Companies within e-commerce possess different online tools to help identify where customers are coming from, what items they are frequently looking at, and how to best optimize the online shopping experience. The retail experience, however, is very different and requires the use of physical tools. One of the oldest methods of gathering data on retail shoppers is through a people counting system, and many of your favorite retail stores will have one currently installed. Traditional people counting systems are sufficient, though many organizations wish the data collected was more accurate and well-rounded. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of using security cameras with people counting capabilities and how it can improve retail operations.
All organizations should have access to high-quality, high-performance video security at an accessible price point.
