- Efficient Management of Voluminous Video Data
- Customisation of Security System
- Improved Visitor Experience
- Maintaining Staff Attendance Log
The humungous amount of video data generated through security systems is difficult to manage, store and review. The video analytics and security in commercial office buildings can be significantly improved through the use of AI. The security and surveillance systems based on AI can review data much faster and give more comprehensive insights. This can provide a virtual guard that is capable of monitoring videos 24x7 with an endless attention span.
Every building or campus has its unique requirements. A security and surveillance system cannot be a one size fit all. A security system installed at an airport cannot work in a hospital. Every facility has its security requirements and concerns. The machine learning algorithms within the AI solutions contain a tremendous scope of customising and training the security system to meet the unique needs of a premise. The systems learn the more they run.
The first point of contact of a visitor with a company or an organisation is the security cabin. In most industrial enterprises the visitors are asked to make a manual register entry – which is still the most common form of maintaining visitor log. These logs are illegible, hard to maintain, and impossible to review. Visitors are asked to provide some government issues identification but with the manual systems, there is no way to capture if the identification is valid or the data as per the details provided by the visitor. In most cases, there is also no way to capture the image of the visitor. In this era of digitization and technology, this can be a big turn off for the visitors. The first impression can be a deal maker or breaker for the company. AI-driven automated entry systems are designed to shorten the time spent by the visitor in making an entry log. The visitor no longer needs to wait for a security guard for assistance. Simple face recognition or scanning of an identity card makes the record gathering easier. The system could automatically inform the concerned person in the building. This leads to reduced waiting time and a hassle-free visitor entry.
Of course, the visitor experience is just the beginning. With traditional systems, there is no possibility of drawing any insights about visitor patterns, trends, and behaviour, There is data gathered but it’s impossible to analyse. The data is disparate, dispersed, inaccurate, and unstructured. With the AI-driven visitor management systems, not only can the entry process be automated and made better but the visitor information can become a goldmine of insights.
Maintenance of staff attendance with the manual or traditional approach is a major challenge in industries, especially those that employ a large number of blue-collar employees and contract staff. More often than not, this creates employee-employer clashes in an organisation. The AI- driven real-time attendance system can help in eradicating the conflict. The system works on face recognition instead of the traditional thumb impressions. The feature allows easy maintaining of records and non-intrusive record-taking. With multiple in-outs, the system makes it easier to maintain shifts and overtimes.
