The Video Surveillance Report 2022

Industry trends report

“48% of businesses are looking to adopt 5G technology in the next 18 months” – Stanley Security Industry Trends Report 2022  

Stanley Security has released its third annual Industry Trends Report, revealing the key themes that industry leaders expect will dominate the security industry in 2022 and beyond.

With the continued adoption of hybrid working models across the globe, organisations are likely to continue to navigate new complexities and concerns when it comes to managing on-site security in 2022.

One predicted trend for the security industry in 2022 is the intersection of 5G, security and IoT 2.0. The expansion of Real Time Location Software (RTLS) technology, widescale connectivity and accessibility of 5G, and the power of IoT-enabled security solutions are expected to deliver immense operational benefits for businesses.

The report argues that the pandemic accelerated cloud security adoption at an astonishing rate, with many businesses now wondering how they can extract more value out of these systems.

In an extract from the report, General Manager – Nordics, Stanley Security, Kettil Stenberg, comments: “With cloud-based security solutions, organisations can have ‘eyes and ears’ on site 24/7 even while they are off premises.

He continues: “44% of business leaders whose organisations who have already implemented these systems say they are interested in learning how else they can be used.”

Of those businesses which have already integrated 5G technology operations, the most reported benefits were increased efficiencies with work processes and outputs (72%), improved ways to process data (57%), and improved remote working capabilities (47%).

The report also found that almost half (48%) of businesses surveyed are looking to adopt 5G technology over the next 18 months. This adoption will power a new generation of asset tracking and environmental monitoring solutions.

Global President, Stanley Security, Mathew Kushner, adds: “With the adoption of 5G we’ll see increased reach and implementation of RTLS, a technology whose potential will be seemingly unlimited in the future. This, in turn, will power a new generation of asset tracking and environmental monitoring solutions for organisations.”
