Artificial intelligence is playing a transformative role in the video surveillance sector, generating significant improvements in efficiency, accuracy, and effectiveness of security systems. This technological advancement is redefining the way surveillance systems are managed, enabling innovative applications. The ability of AI to generate and analyze metadata obtained from a video stream and anticipate events marks a significant milestone in the evolution of security solutions. In this publication by By Demes, a leading CCTV distributor in Spain, we will discuss the revolution of artificial intelligence in video surveillance, emphasizing its current and future impact on the CCTV sector.


Current Applications of AI in CCTV

The most notable application of artificial intelligence in CCTV today is video analysis. AI examines images for patterns and anomalies, detecting suspicious activities such as intrusions or criminal behavior.

Here are some of the most significant applications of AI in the CCTV sector

  • Behavioral analysis: AI can learn and recognize behavior patterns, giving us the ability to prevent incidents before they happen, for example by detecting falls, physical assaults, accidents, etc.
  • Intrusion detection: Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides us with immediate alerts for possible intrusions in restricted areas, allowing us to take swift action to prevent theft or damage.
  • Facial recognition: Thanks to AI, cameras have the capability to identify both familiar and unknown faces. This feature is valuable for controlling access to specific areas or identifying individuals sought by authorities.
  • Object tracking: AI tracks objects in video images, monitoring traffic, detecting lost items, or tracking people and vehicles.
  • Resource optimization: AI optimizes the use of cameras and resources to focus on truly necessary areas, resulting in cost reduction and improved efficiency of the security system.
  • PPE Management: Thanks to the ability to analyze video transmission and millions of users stored on powerful chips that incorporate AI CCTV systems, we can receive instant notifications if a worker is not wearing mandatory PPE, such as a helmet, safety equipment, reflective jacket, protective glasses, etc. It's a great ally in preventing workplace accidents due to lack of PPE use.

Future Applications of AI in CCTV

In the future, it is expected that AI will be applied in different areas of the CCTV sector, considering how quickly artificial intelligence has come to us, it is anticipated that it will continue to evolve, unleashing new uses for it.

  • Generative artificial intelligence: Create synthetic video images for training, past events, or nonexistent scenarios.
  • Cybersecurity: Protect CCTV systems against cyberattacks, including detection, recovery, and prevention of future attacks.
  • Data analysis: Use AI to analyze data generated by CCTV systems, identifying trends and patterns not visible to the naked eye.

Impact of AI in the CCTV Sector

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is having a significant impact by improving the efficiency of outcomes. Among the main trends are the automation of key tasks, such as event detection, object tracking, and facial recognition. In addition, the creation of new CCTV applications, such as threat detection, traffic management, and resource optimization, is observed. The integration of AI reduces the workload of the operator, improving the accuracy and effectiveness of video surveillance. It facilitates the rapid identification of suspicious events and provides advanced analysis for data management, preventing incidents, and optimizing resources.
