2020 represents the start of a new decade. As far as security technology has come in the past ten years, imagine how it will evolve over the next ten. Modern science brings us minor miracles almost every day at this clip. So if you need to protect your campus, office park, hospital, or house of worship better, seeking as much information as possible should be a priority. One way to improve your security infrastructure is through implementing Facial ID Technology.
Effects on Overall Security
Let’s begin with an examination of this technology’s impact on overall security developments. In the West, there is a groundswell of concern about privacy. What this means is that public surveillance is something to be fought against, except in the case of security cameras or CCTV footage.
Meanwhile, In China, facial-scanning technology is standard. It has become necessary to complete many mundane tasks, such as entering buildings and purchasing transit tickets. The Chinese infrastructure has quickly evolved into something akin to the human immune system. Anyone exhibiting suspicious behavior is often detected, and the authorities are pinged, improving response times through the combination of CCTV and IoT-enabled cameras.
Effects on Residential Settings
The so-called “smart home” is a consumer trend that has become increasingly popular over the past several years. Smart homes can improve convenience through voice-activated requests to play music or update grocery lists. They can also enhance security by displaying images from an external camera to a screen inside the home, such as on a laptop or tablet device. Verifying authorized visitors through facial recognition is a form of biometric security that wouldn’t seem out of place in residential neighborhoods or apartment complexes.
Effects on Commercial Spaces
Commercial spaces are always hives buzzing with activity. Supermarkets, big box stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues can benefit from upgraded facial ID technology as well. For instance, this technology can help prevent or solve incidents of shoplifting or vandalism. It can also help improve the customer’s experience, no matter what service they need.
