Biometric CCTV market poised to hit $3.2 billion by 2016
The biometric CCTV market could reach $3.2 billion by 2016, with an annual growth rate of 33 percent, analysts from the Homeland Security Research Corporation (HSRC) have recently forecast.
The security camera industry has already seen rapid growth as the private and public sector have installed surveillance systems to help combat crime and provide real-time information. Over the next decade, analysts from the Homeland Security Research Corporation (HSRC) project that the next trend in this field will be the increasing integration of biometric technology into surveillance cameras.
Using automated biometric systems can help reduce costs and offer enhanced intelligence with automated features like biometric facial recognition capabilities and behavior detection.
The report forecasts that future technological developments will help drive the CCTV market and create significant growth opportunities for the security camera industry, biometric and IT systems manufacturers, and security systems integrators.
Tensor – experts in the integration of Biometric CCTV systems with Access Control
The integration of a comprehensive, high-end Biometric CCTV surveillance system with an Access Control solution is not exactly an easy task, especially since most solutions’ providers out there can either offer one or the other. However, given our extensive experience in both segments, we are actually able to easily offer such an extensive level of functionality for all of our systems.
As they’re built around the same cutting-edge technology platform, Tensor.NET, both the WinAC.NET and WinTA.NET suites support an extensive level of CCTV integration.
Basically, the video clips, retrieved from Biometric CCTV cameras, associated with access control activity are available when CCTV is integrated with Tensor.NET.
The cameras are allocated to location entries created in Tensor.NET, which are then linked to smart card scanners or push buttons in the Hardware Manager. Furthermore, multiple cameras can be allocated to the same location, or multiple locations can be assigned to the same camera and lock sensors are connected directly to the CCTV’s DVR.
As a lock is released, an alarm event triggers the recording of video footage for the event. This footage is then available for playback in Tensor.NET, either by location or as a link in an access control report. Screen displays are provided to report upon access events, including links to play the related video clip.
Additionally, the application allows either live or historic video to be viewed for periods not linked to any specific Access Control event.
