Safety should be the biggest priority in everyone’s minds. All of the precautions put in place for this pandemic crisis are a good way to start. Most retail stores and businesses have closed their doors for the time being, but some establishments are still considered essential, such as grocery stores and supermarkets. However, incidents such as hate crimes can still happen, and video analytics can help crack these cases, especially if the offenders aren’t immediately apprehended. Let’s find out more about why video analytics are so crucial.
The implementation of improved technology has also aided first responders in their efforts to deal with any incidents that do happen. Communities all over the country can benefit from using video analytics for many public institutions such as schools, buildings, and hotels. Although these places are closed now, once the pandemic has passed, this technology will continue to be useful. Video analytics rely on powerful cameras that not all communities can afford, but with some cooperation, change is going to come.
For the longest time, pixel color recognition was the foundation of video analytics, but times have changed as better technologies have become available. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automated security systems that incorporate biometrics can all be enabled and indeed enhanced by the use of surveillance cameras and biometric security. Two-dimensional images can now be rendered in four dimensions instead. This allows security personnel to make smarter decisions about how they can help and if they need to contact the authorities instead.
We have previously spoken about the importance of biometric security but even with all of the downtime, these measures can be discussed even if they cannot be installed under present circumstances. Social distancing has become even more important in these times, but there are still going to be long lines as people queue up to get into essential businesses to stock up on groceries, medicine, and receive care for themselves, their loved ones, and their pets. All of this should be taken into account and must not be overlooked.
