In recent years, connected objects are increasingly present in our daily lives. The security and remote surveillance sector in the workplace is one of the markets that essentially exploits these new technological practices. In particular, the IoT (Internet of Things) offers real performance in terms of machine maintenance monitoring, such as industrial equipment, geolocation, smart cameras, real-time energy consumption monitoring, etc.
IoT technologies to ensure real-time monitoring
With IoT technology, continuous monitoring has become more efficient and even more accurate thanks to the integration of artificial intelligence. Infrastructures (companies, communities, smart cities) are equipped with the latest technological practices to improve the security of people and goods.
Especially since image capture technologies, such as drones equipped with cameras and video surveillance devices, are now everywhere. With IoT, device connectivity is assured and businesses can access them in real time.
In addition, the automation of the thermal cameras consists in monitoring 7 days a week and measuring the temperature of the machines to anticipate possible mechanical breakdowns. Equipped with sensors, the IoT captures data and stores it in a cloud. The data is then processed and analyzed within secure systems.
Remote monitoring and IoT: alarms and connected cameras
Video surveillance installed in buildings is one of the most effective solutions to immediately alert the security company. With these devices equipped with connected cameras, images are sent instantly for rapid response by security services.
Manufacturers are also offering next-generation connected alarm systems, which are managed via an app on a smartphone or laptop. The system can be activated or deactivated in just a few seconds remotely. Also, the detection of suspicious movements causes an alert on the devices.
Thanks to the cloud, companies can get a 24-hour visual of their premises. This allows them to dispense with the services of a security agency and thus reduce surveillance costs.
What developments can we expect in the future?
Technological developments in IoT and surveillance are trending towards standardization. With artificial intelligence or facial recognition, the data becomes qualitative and precise for a more efficient remote monitoring.
In the future, high-speed connectivity technologies will be essential to improve real-time information reception. However, this evolution is only possible in compliance with current IoT regulations.
