Surveillance Security System is Expected to Hold Major Share

  • Governments are investing in tackling the rising rate of crimes globally. The implementation of mass surveillance systems has helped in tracking the suspects for crimes. The use of a License Plate Reader (LRP) on the roads is rising in response to unsafe driving. According to the NHTSA 2018 report, for more than two decades, speeding has been the reason for approximately one -third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In February 2019, the US government released a strategy for surveillance and control of travel. This strategy includes the surveillance of all movements of a person by collecting as much information as possible, especially biometric and biographic. The deployment of this act will increase the demand for the electronic security market in the region.
  • Further, a more robust security solution to the small and medium business markets is a vital need in the current market trend. Players are focused on offering new solutions, including a variety of wireless sensors. For instance, in May 2020, Sonitrol announced the launch of TotalGuard Smart Hub & additional wireless devices. It is innovated to target small and medium businesses by offering affordable professional security. TotalGuard is an all -in -one, edge-based device that acts as a standalone IoT panel. Each TotalGuard device includes Sonitrol impact activated audio detection, glass break analytics, video verification, and surveillance, motion, and wireless connectivity, all professionally monitored by a Sonitrol Central Station.
  • In March 2020, SmartSteward, Inc., a digital health company focused on advanced infection control and antibiotic stewardship software for skilled nursing facilities, released a new antimicrobial electronic surveillance and an alert system called SmartSteward EYE. In response to the current COVID-19 global outbreak, the company has modified its existing surveillance system, which was focused on identifying multi-drug resistant organisms (MDROs), to include new algorithms for the early detection of respiratory viruses. This modern surveillance system will track laboratory testing as well as patient symptoms and clinical observations to detect potentially dangerous bacterial and viral outbreaks in real-time. The system will send alerts to local healthcare teams to help them limit the spread of these infections throughout the facility.
  • In April 2020, the West Australian government announced an AUD 91 million policing package, including electronic surveillance initiatives, in the continuing battle to ensure people obey rules around the coronavirus pandemic.
