Smart Security: IoT for video surveillance
Remote monitoring is defined as an integrated physical and logical monitoring network. The concept was first developed in the 1970s by scientists seeking to observe the behaviour of wild animals. It has quickly become the preferred method of surveillance for companies for a wide variety of purposes, including traffic analysis, firefighting, construction site intrusion alerts, etc. Companies quickly discovered that this technology could be used in many areas besides the security and defence industries.

Your questions about Smart Security
Why should I be interested in remote monitoring?
Remote monitoring is becoming increasingly popular with businesses as it reduces theft and provides better protection for employees and customers. Most security companies that use remote monitoring do not only use it for visible surveillance, but also for other purposes, such as property protection, plant protection, or protection against vandalism. There are now companies that specialise in the integration of intelligent video surveillance, and specialist companies that can offer the installation of cameras in key locations and areas at very affordable costs.
What services does a remote monitoring system offer?
The company provides security services including electronic information exchange, access management and monitoring. This exchange of information is done through the use of telephones and computer networks as well as the Internet. The main objective of the monitoring company is to identify and prevent unauthorized entry and access, both at the front and rear of the buildings. The company provides access control, surveillance, intrusion detection and perimeter protection for permanent and temporary staff. It also provides assistance to call center agents and security personnel on and off site.
This surveillance can be perimetric around a building, but also concentrated on specific areas to ensure the security of goods.
What is the role of the remote monitoring solution provider?
The company’s primary function is to design and install state-of-the-art telecommunication and home security systems that allow authorized personnel secure remote access to all data. It is also responsible for building the equipment needed to ensure the security of telecommunications and computer networks, as well as data storage. Many companies use remote surveillance to monitor the working environment of employees and contractors and to supervise the maintenance of facilities.
What is the weight of IoT technologies in remote monitoring?
In order to communicate, a camera must be connected to a network. This network can be local (LAN), or wireless like 5G.
Gartner, a leading US research firm, predicts that outdoor surveillance cameras will be the largest market for 5G Internet of Things solutions in the world over the next three years. These cameras will represent the second largest IoT market behind connected cars by the end of 2023.
What is Smart Security in terms of remote monitoring?
With the rapid increase in crime, most people want to know about Smart Security for their home and business. These systems allow home and business owners to track their property with wireless cameras, smart motion sensors and remote monitoring systems. These systems are often linked to mobile applications that are installed directly on the phone. Business owners are now able to manage their security systems from virtually anywhere in the world, simply from their own smartphone.
The home is becoming increasingly intelligent with the addition of smart motion detectors, remote monitoring and smart home alarm systems. Homeowners can now take a whole new approach to protecting their property without having to call the police themselves. Business owners are helping to keep their buildings safe for their customers, employees and clients by installing surveillance cameras and other types of smart security systems. If someone is brave enough to enter your office, or even your home, an alarm system can detect movement and sound, and it will alert the proper authorities or the service provider assigned to you.
How will connected objects disrupt remote monitoring?
Security cameras, such as motion and smoke sensors, have been in use for a long time, but are not connected to each other via a wired or wireless network.
The increasing demand for Smart Surveillance in public spaces, commercial spaces, public transport and other areas and the rise of connected objects will lead to further integration of these camera and sensor systems.
Artificial intelligence, fed by data from these sensors, will improve the speed of intervention by triggering alerts after recognition of certain images (such as fire outbreaks for example).

They trust us
"In our industry, smooth communication is a critical point since our service is tied to people. So we chose Synox because when we need technical support, we get a diagnosis and a solution very quickly."
Computer & telecom engineer
"We were looking for a mature solution for rapid deployment, which is what Synox offered us. From decision making, to hardware purchase and deployment (connectivity, dashboards...) thanks to Synox's end-to-end support, the 1st Proof of Concept was completed in less than a month!"
"We wanted to give ourselves the means to avoid breakdowns and reduce our customers' stress regarding production downtime. After some research, IoT quickly appeared to be the answer to this need. Synox's collaborative approach seemed to me to be the right one and convinced me. The ability to listen to the teams and the hyper responsiveness of the support department allowed us to successfully move this project forward."
"What is interesting about the Synox solution is that it can be adapted independently to the needs of our customers, and perhaps even later to other sectors of activity. With a very simple implementation and a modest cost, we were able to deploy the solution to about 20 customers within 6 months."
"It was possible to test the proper functioning of the solution proposed by Synox before the contract was put in place, so we were able to get quick feedback from the sanitation department, which proved to be very positive. The responsiveness of Synox support in the event of a problem is much appreciated. It promotes our collaboration in an environment of trust."
Technical Project Manager
"Before the installation of connected objects, sometimes it was our customers who informed us of a malfunction in the heating system... Now we can be proactive about this type of incident. We had already carried out several unsuccessful - and expensive - POCs before testing SoDATA#Viz but when we saw the real-time curves of our 50 objects, only a week after signing the POC, it quickly convinced us!"
