The Video Surveillance Report 2022

Intrusion alarms and detection systems are usually among the top priorities when security teams devise a comprehensive security plan.

This is clear when you consider that the European perimeter intrusion detection systems market is projected to grow 15.7% annually until 2024. Rising demand is been driven by innovation in video surveillance, cloud-driven remote access and wireless technology, among other things.

Let’s examine four of the biggest drivers and the benefits they can bring to organisations in a wide range of verticals.

1. Cloud-centric product development

Perhaps the most pronounced trend across the physical security industry – particularly in the intrusion space – is growing adoption of cloud-based systems.

The benefits are myriad: remote alarm management, greater connectivity and streamlined security operations to name three. The latest cutting-edge products on the market today deliver on the promise of a cloud-based SaaS model that gives operators a flexibility and inter-connectivity that brings significant benefits to their business.

Many manufacturers in the intrusion space continue to invest in cloud-based solutions across their portfolios, anticipating continuing growth in demand for such products.

2. Shift from product- to service-focused models

We’re seeing a shift away from manufacturers being exclusively product-centred to offering solutions that support customers that want to operate as a service-based company. And many businesses are moving in this direction.

This reflects the fact that organisations increasingly prize longer-term partnerships rather than ‘one and done’ purchases with no incentive for continuing the relationship. Some might argue that security has for some time been more service-focused than many sectors, but this trend is certainly accelerating.

3. Growing connectivity

Devices are becoming smarter, more interoperable and more interconnected, both in the intrusion arena and beyond, courtesy of the internet of things (IoT). Customers demand intrusion detection systems that communicate and integrate seamlessly with their access control, fire detection and video management systems.

Such integrations have been well-received by customers seeking greater functionality from their security systems.

4. Wireless, two-way communication

Greater connectivity has prompted customers to demand more extensive communications across devices and teams. Wireless, two-way communication through cloud-based systems has emerged to give customers greater flexibility in servicing and programming their systems, whether on-site or remotely.

Installers are increasingly rolling out this powerful tool with more functionality being released throughout this year. Vanderbilt is helping to extend support from installers and dealers for end users, and creating how-to videos and online training for setup and operation.

We at Vanderbilt will continue to drive and shape these trends to help our customers extract more value from their security solutions.
