Smart home technology will appeal to everyone
While home automation technology has been available for some years, more homeowners of all ages will finally get in on the action with integrated devices such as automated door locks, smart doorbell cameras and systems for controlling thermostats, appliances and lighting. Google, Apple and Amazon are also investing in smart home technology with cloud-based apps, offering more efficient, uniform connectivity between smart appliances and devices, providing a better user experience.
Mobile integration and self-monitoring
In 2017, more people will use mobile apps to access and remotely monitor video surveillance on their commercial and residential properties. Using their smart phones, tablets or mobile devices, customers will be able to get instant security alerts if an alarm has been triggered, watch real-time video-feed via wireless surveillance, as well as arm or disable their security systems – in the event of a false emergency – by sending a quick text message.
Intelligent video surveillance
Surveillance systems are more intelligent than ever, featuring high-performance infrared and HD imaging integrated with analytical software. IP cameras will be offering enhanced surveillance capabilities, including scalable image processing, compression, streaming and analytics. IP surveillance systems with intelligent video have numerous capabilities, including automatic face detection and recognition from video or images, and object/people tracking. Intelligent video will prove invaluable in commercial applications for identifying suspicious activity.
