As we move past an unprecedented year of change, everyone is eager to see what 2021 has in store. For those in the security and surveillance space, of particular interest is how video content analytics might evolve to support emerging use cases. In that vein, Deep Learning and Predictive Analytics are among the key technologies that will continue to benefit video surveillance solutions development and adoption in 2021 - here's why.
Gun safety isn’t a new issue in the U.S., of course — it’s a hot-button political issue, to say the least. Regardless, there is no debate that every organization wants to keep its community safe.

Olymbec, one of the largest, privately owned industrial real estate holders on the East Coast, manages upwards of 300 properties throughout Canada and the U.S. The company needed to upgrade its video surveillance to improve security as well as increase rentability.
With the fall season underway and winter looming, states across the U.S. are opening up their grants for applications. There are a number of different programs and types of security grants that organizations can qualify for.
One thing has become clear; to abide by the “new normal” restrictions, organizations need to be constantly aware of their environments’ compliance, in real-time. To do that, they need to improve their security and situational awareness, so they can quickly assess evolving situations and respond when violations occur.
Banks, like other businesses, are taking precautions to make customers feel safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Placing physical distancing markers on the floor, sanitizing ATMs, installing plexiglass partitions at teller booths and requiring scheduled appointments are just some of the ways financial institutions are mitigating risks for customers. Video surveillance can play a vitally important role right now, as banks look to ensure compliance with these new COVID-related safety measures. IP cameras with intelligent security analytics can help rapidly and accurately detect compliance issues, as well as other suspicious or atypical behavior. After all, banks must continue to monitor physical security even throughout the pandemic and today’s IP cameras with intelligent system-on-chip (SoC) technology can help lessen this burden with highly accurate notifications.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security awarded the nation's largest statewide public transportation system NJ Transit more than two million dollars in grant money for security cameras and related equipment at dozens of locations.
