The future is indeed in sharp focus.

Twenty years ago, when Secom first entered the security landscape, the apex of surveillance technology was primarily closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems. While revolutionary at the time, they mainly recorded footage for later review, offering limited real-time capabilities and relying heavily on human monitoring for effectiveness.

Recognizing both the limitations and future potential of surveillance technology early on, Secom has consistently stayed ahead of the curve, anticipating industry shifts before they happened and adapting instantaneously. Our proactive approach has allowed our team to equip clients with cutting-edge safeguards, including cloud-based solutions and AI-driven analytics, ensuring robust and forward-thinking security measures.

Gone are the days of simple video recording. Today’s surveillance technologies are fueled by AI-driven components that not only watch but understand and anticipate, transforming how we think about and implement security measures across the board.

1) AI-Driven Technology: Transforming Security

Commercial properties equipped with the latest in AI-driven video surveillance benefit from state-of-the-art systems that analyze hours of footage to detect unusual patterns and predict potential break-ins before they happen.

Modern AI video analytics can identify a person loitering in a high-security area at unusual hours, enabling security personnel to respond before any harm is done. This proactive approach to security not only enhances safety but also significantly reduces the risk of theft and vandalism.

Secom’s video surveillance systems are embedded with sophisticated AI that transform traditional security measures into proactive, predictive tools. This technology utilizes algorithms to analyze video feeds in real-time, identifying and learning from vast amounts of data to anticipate – and thwart – potential threats​​.

Deep learning and AI vision solutions further enhance these benefits of video surveillance technology by enabling cameras to recognize specific objects, such as people or vehicles, and their actions quickly and accurately. This advanced recognition capability is crucial for providing real-time security insights and decision-making support​.

2) Real-Time Monitoring for Enhanced Crime Response

With cloud-based video surveillance technology, security teams can monitor feeds from anywhere, at any time. This capability ensures that any suspicious activity can be identified and addressed immediately, providing an immediate response that can prevent incidents from escalating – or occurring at all.

3) Comprehensive Coverage and High-Quality Imaging

Today’s video surveillance cameras are capable of capturing high-definition video, which is critical for both real-time monitoring and forensic analysis. High-resolution footage ensures that no detail is missed, from facial features to license plate numbers, which can be pivotal in the event of security investigations or legal proceedings.

4) Cost-Effective, Scalable Solutions

Modern video surveillance systems also offer scalable options that grow with your business, ensuring significant savings and long-term investment protection. They reduce the need for extensive manual monitoring, reducing both labor costs and the risk of human error​.

5) Seamless Integration with Other Security Systems

Secom’s video surveillance technologies flawlessly integrate with other security measures like access control, alarm systems, and more. This integration creates a cohesive security strategy that enhances overall facility protection. By linking video surveillance with other technologies, businesses can create a comprehensive security ecosystem that is more effective at deterring and responding to potential threats.

It’s important to note that the mere presence of a video surveillance system acts as a significant deterrent to possible criminal activities. Potential offenders are far less likely to target a facility where they know their actions are being monitored and recorded. This is particularly crucial in areas susceptible to theft, vandalism, or unauthorized access.

As Secom celebrates our 20th anniversary, we are in no way slowing down. Our continued commitment to evolve with the latest security technologies ensures that our company – and our clients – will remain at the forefront of the industry, enhanced by state-of-the-art solutions that secure commercial, industrial, and governmental entities effectively. We’re more than just a provider – we’re a true partner in your overall safety strategy.
