EDITOR'S NOTE

Selecting the Proper Technology

Back in the day, talking about government security was all the rage. In fact, it was about cameras, software and access control. All these things were and are still vitally important. The chatter today is all about cybersecurity and selecting solutions that are technologically sound, and offer a reliable investment.

This topic is covered in our Cover Story, written by Joel White of Bosch Security and Safety Systems. He writes that video analytics technology can bring intelligence to infrastructure by delivering solutions for traffic flow, which also includes improved safety, smart parking and data collection.

Safety can be enhanced with video analytics. Here’s how it works. Early incident detection enables traffic and transportation centers to implement necessary workflows to resolve any irregularities to assist first responders.

White delves into several key topics that are pertinent to the government security market. He will breaks down how to enhance safety with video analytics, the tool’s ability to analyze data to extend beyond safety, and finally a recap on the fact that these capabilities and solutions may seem futuristic, but they are not. They are already being used in many cities and states across North America.

I think you’ll enjoy our cover story, and the details about the possibilities of a smart infrastructure to improve safety and security in your jurisdiction.
