The last decade has seen a revolution when it comes to technology and security. The development and integration of smart technology into common security has been something of a revelation for a lot of businesses. Companies can now incorporate cutting-edge systems like increased remote access, artificial intelligence, and wireless video into their everyday security practices. But what exactly is smart security, and how can your business or organization best adopt it?

What is Smart Security?


Smart security is a broad term. But it boils down to incorporating advanced technology into your existing security systems to either update them, or create a whole new system that is better suited for 2022. Some examples may include:

  • Incorporating artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms into your surveillance cameras. This may be because your business gets a lot of traffic throughout the day and you need to keep better track of who comes in and out of your building or business.

  • Enabling remote access so you can access your security systems from anywhere. If you manage multiple properties, and there’s an emergency and you’re not able to be there right away, this is key. Smart technology can help you access your security systems on the go and enable you to respond as if you were on-site.

  • Cloud computing and storage have made video security in particular easier for companies and property owners. This is because the cloud enables off-site data storage and computing capabilities that may not have been available 20 years ago. It can save costs in the long-run on internal maintenance and storage as well as helping to minimize the amount of hardware needed to keep your systems running. 

  • Biometric security has been around for a while, but the ability to make it self-sufficient and able to connect it to remote access controls has taken a huge leap in the last decade. Similar to remote access, biometric security is an even more secure way to make sure the right people are entering the right places within your building.

Finding out what security systems your business or property needs and then making a plan of action to incorporate them can be a daunting task. First you need to know your business and property inside and out. Does it have a lot of visitors? Are there going to be areas with access restrictions? What kind of security camera do you value more?
