Every human being craves security since a very young age. Be it an infant curling next to his mother during a thunderstorm or a multinational company installing the latest cybersecurity tools, everyone wants to feel a strong sense of security in their immediate surroundings. Modern-day security systems not only create a safer home and work environments; they also determine the success of large companies.
A company with a non-secure database will be taken apart by hackers in seconds. That’s why there will always be a need for rapid innovation in the security industry. To meet these demands that get more complex every year, top security companies manufacture new surveillance gadgets and software tools every year.
These ‘smart’ or internet-powered security gadgets can be linked to create comprehensive surveillance systems tailored to an organization’s needs. For instance, many government bodies use unique arrangements of cybersecurity tools, fire alarms, CCTV cameras, etc. to protect their countries’ interests.
The rate of acceleration in the home and private security systems market size is increasing every year. By 2025, the global security systems industry is set to reach a valuation of $78.9 billion. That’s a CAGR of 8.0% in five years! Some key drivers of this amazing growth are –
Growing awareness about the importance of cybersecurity tools.
Increase in theft and break-in attempts across the country.
The emergence of internet-driven wireless surveillance systems.
Adoption of motion and heat-detecting CCTV cameras to address the global COVID-19 crisis.
So, what advanced security systems in Dubai should the public be most excited about? Here are a few amazing innovations –
Automating Physical Spaces
Automating physical spaces isn’t a new concept. For many years, people have been adding timers or thermostats to their living and office spaces. These are all examples of automation. However, thanks to the emergence of IoT (internet of things) and 5G – every appliance or device can now be connected to the internet, and essentially, to the same cloud platform.
Hence, a simple lighting arrangement or a refrigerator can now carry out ‘smart’ activities. These appliances will all be data-driven. Users can collect a wide range of metrics from these devices. By assessing these metrics, they can boost the security of their living or working spaces. For instance, smart detectors on a refrigerator will contribute to energy savings and send alarms to the owner if there’s a fire hazard.
Smart locks are an offshoot of these advancements. In the past, standard lock systems were the only security features that people could afford. Modern-day locks can be wirelessly connected to the internet. Users can open or close these locks via apps on their mobile phones. Some smart locks send instant notifications to the property owner if an unauthorized person touches the door or the locks.
Similarly, smart windows and doors are all part of the automation movement. In the future, smart locks will act as fire alarms, smoke detectors, and even recognize fingerprints. These ‘smart’ systems may sound costly, but they won’t be once there’s a great demand for them. Some of these smart security systems are already bestsellers. Top manufacturers of surveillance systems expect to roll out even more automation-driven security products in the next few years.
Single Point of Contact
In the past, installing security systems meant purchasing the latest equipment from a security systems manufacturer, hiring a professional installer, asking engineers to adapt the systems to the living/working spaces’ requirements, etc.
The top security companies of the future will offer all of these services in streamlined packages. These leading security companies are open to designing surveillance systems and cybersecurity tools specifically for a particular company or organization. They also specialize in installing these systems. They test their security systems until they’re fully integrated with all the existing appliances and security arrangements. More importantly, these security experts are able to provide constant customer support and maintain their security systems on a regular basis. That’s because these systems are smart and can be tweaked even from remote locations.
That’s why businesses and even government bodies must steer away from self-installed security systems or independent contractors and team up with industry giants who can fulfill all of their security requirements.
The future-oriented security experts prefer offering customized services. They strategically create cybersecurity tools for specific purposes or organizations. Similarly, they install their surveillance systems in a highly strategic manner. For instance, a recent study revealed that 34% of burglars use the main door to gain entry into homes. So, it makes logical sense to install surveillance cameras and other equipment at the front entrances of homes! In the futures, surveillance devices can also be added to
- Back doors
- Main stairways
Will installing so many surveillance devices drive up costs? No! Modern-day surveillance equipment is small, easily replaceable, and feature technologies like motion-detection or heat-detection. These savvy security experts will make the future a lot safer!
