What does 2022 have in store for the security industry?

Issue 1 2022 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The past couple of years has undoubtedly been challenging for everyone. With the pandemic still looming everywhere, people have somewhat learned to adjust to the new normal. And with it, a wave of new technologies has emerged. According to an IEEE study, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, cloud computing and 5G are just some of the technologies set to take centre stage in 2022. Key trends in 2022, according to Dahua will include the following:

1. Accelerated adoption of AI-powered video analytics and entry-level products. By embedding AI into end, edge and cloud scenarios, more AI-based devices will be widely applied in various fields and industries. It’s likely that technologies related to AI analytics – such as AI-based forensic search, business intelligence, object detection and bandwidth – will drive a large part of video surveillance innovation in 2022 and beyond. Dahua’s WizSense, a wide-ranging series of AI products and solutions that recognise humans and vehicles with high accuracy, is set to release upgrades in its AI Scene Self-adaptation (AI SSA) , AI Coding and QuickPick functionalities.

Furthermore, according to the 2021 Video Surveillance & Analytics Database Report from Omdia, demand for recording devices – especially entry-level equipment – with embedded deep learning analytics is expected to increase. The Dahua Cooper-I series XVR, for example, is the first entry-level intelligent analogue recorder and storage device that offers AI features such as SMD (smart motion detection) Plus and AI coding. Likewise, the Dahua Eureka series is also composed of entry-level thermal cameras powered by AI.

2. Cloud-based video surveillance continues to grow and evolve. The demand for cloud computing among organisations is expected to continue in 2022 as a result of remote working and growing trendsin digital transformation due to Covid-19. The adoption of cloud-based video surveillance solutions like VSaaS (Video-Surveillance-as-a-Service) is also set to accelerate in 2022. Dahua’s COS cloud platform is a cloud-based platform that allows users to manage on-site devices and enjoy a full range of services anytime, anywhere. It also provides installers with convenient solutions right at their fingertips, including 24/7 remote problem diagnosis and repair, alarm operation, cloud storage service, etc.

3. 5G technology paves the way for remote work and video conferencing. The fast network capabilities of video connections enabled by 5G broadband technology ensure real-time sharing of images and zero-latency synchronisation of audio and video, enabling efficient remote communication and collaboration.

4. Convergence of multiple systems through AIoT. The convergence of multi-dimensional sensing devices and systems through the Internet of Things (IoT) is another area that will see growth in the coming year. Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) is a combination of AI technologies and IoT infrastructure. It achieves more efficient IoT operations, improves human-machine interactions and enhances data management and analytics. In other words, not only can every single element in the IoT environment operate AI individually, they can also connect to each other and together, perform tasks smarter.

5. Cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is an increasing concern among users and will become more of an issue with the growth in IoT networks. The greatest concerns are with mobile and hybrid workforces (employees working from home or remotely), cloud and data centre vulnerabilities and coordinated attacks on networks. Dahua provides users with end-to-end encryption technology that covers the security of the whole life cycle of data. The company integrates security protection measures such as certificate authentication, code stream integrity verification and code stream encryption, so that the network data is encrypted and protected in the whole process of collection, transmission, storage, sharing and use.

Other technologies to watch

Low-light monitoring: The new generation of Dahua’s full-colour cameras now has dual sensors – one to capture light information, the other to capture colour information – and advanced image signal processing, enabling high quality images. In addition, Dahua’s Three-in-One Camera (TiOC) is soon to release updates in its HAC products, including red and blue light interference elimination, voice customication and product serialisation.

Thermal thermography: Dahua’s entry-level thermal handheld thermography camera HI20 is a portable, accurate and economical thermal device suitable for preventive maintenance in places susceptible to temperature fluctuations. It can be used for electrical fault inspection, equipment and machineries, health diagnostics of buildings, etc.

Solar energy: Dahua’s Integrated Off-grid Security Solution integrates video surveillance (including AI functions) with 4G network transmission technology and solar power technology to provide an efficient monitoring system to areas without access to a network connection or electricity.
