Apps have been commonplace on smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices for many years now, and have completely revolutionized the way we look at mobile phones. Whereas mobile phones were once used only for talking and texting, smartphones can now take you online, and do everything from measure the number of steps you take in a day to allow you to stream music on your phone anywhere at any time. Now, apps are coming to surveillance cameras, which is about to revolutionize these devices as well.
Surveillance Camera Apps are a Game Changer for Security
Apps are bringing new functionality and highly specific features and capabilities to cameras. So why is this such a big deal?
For one, it’s incredibly cost-efficient for the end-user. Some of these features have already been available, but only on a system-wide basis, which is much more expensive. Apps bring advanced functionality to the user at a price they can afford.
Second, while camera apps are still in their infancy, the potential for growth is unlimited. End-users are already seeing the value and potential for return on investment in apps, and demand for apps is only going to continue to grow. As demand grows, both first and third parties will develop and refine apps to improve the user experience.
Third, apps allow users to create a custom experience for their cameras. The days of CCTV cameras that provided users with grainy images and little else are long gone. Users will now be able to utilize camera apps for many important security needs, including:
- Intrusion detection
- Face capture and recognition
- Queue management
- Video direct to storage
- Cloud connectivity
- Transit and cargo recognition
- License plate recognition
It won’t be long until we’re wondering how we lived without apps on security cameras. The next few years will bring unprecedented advances in security camera technology.
