The security industry in 2024 is an exciting landscape that we are actively navigating, reports Hikvision.

As we embrace technological innovation and adapt to evolving societal needs, we are witnessing the convergence of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT) and big data.

These innovations are paving the way for smarter, more proactive and predictive security solutions that are not only robust but also meet the easy-to-use demands of users.

In this article, we want to share the top seven trends that we anticipate will have a significant impact on the security industry this year.

Top seven security industry trends:

AI expedites the enhancement of machine perception

AI is playing a crucial role in transforming the security industry by enhancing machines’ perceptual capabilities through integration with technologies like visible light, audio, X-ray, infrared light and radar.

An example of this transformation is the implementation of AI image signal processing (AI-ISP) technology, which significantly improves video imaging.

Through intelligent noise reduction, AI-ISP enhances visual quality, providing clearer images with a wide dynamic range and sharp detail, especially in low-light environments.

This advancement reduces reliance on additional lighting, contributing to more efficient situational responses.

AI-driven applications poised to transform various industries

Over the past year, developments in large-scale AI models have enhanced the capacity to interpret intricate scenarios using diverse datasets.

We anticipate that these advancements open avenues for the development of more customised AI solutions in sectors like manufacturing, energy, healthcare and education.

Built upon open platforms and sophisticated algorithms, these refined architectures promote effortless integration of AI across various verticals.

This encourages collaboration and cultivates an innovative ecosystem conducive to technological progress.

The accelerating convergence of cloud and edge computing

The integration of cloud and edge computing is fuelling the rise of swifter and more effective services.

This results in real-time, intelligent solutions, such as enhanced perimeter control and more convenient management of cloud-based security systems.

These advancements empower us with instantaneous analytics, facilitating improved decision-making at the edge.

Additionally, cloud-based platforms reduce hardware investments, providing scalable options suitable for businesses of all sizes and budgets, thereby lowering upfront and ongoing costs.

The revolutionary impact of digital twin technology

Digital twins are virtual models that simulate real-world scenarios in real-time.

Through integration with AIoT, cloud computing and other technologies, they offer dynamic insights into performance metrics such as security, traffic and energy usage.

This immersive experience, coupled with synchronised visuals, enhances process efficiency, enables proactive maintenance and results in cost savings, ultimately contributing to improved business management.

The swift advancements in display technology

The swift integration of chip on board (COB) technology is fuelling the need for small-pitch LEDs.

Progressive LED solutions are also emerging, striking a balance between reduced energy consumption and high resolution, fostering carbon neutrality and expanding their applicability.

Examples include integrated video walls in command centres, facilitating intelligent decision-making through intuitive views.

Furthermore, interactive displays and digital signage serve as catalysts for digital transformation in education, business and the hospitality sectors.

The growing significance of digital identity authentication in safeguarding cybersecurity

Ensuring cybersecurity involves the critical process of digital identity authentication, which entails verifying and authorising identities.

Threat actors employ techniques such as phishing, malware and social engineering to pilfer personal information and identities.

To protect digital identities, both users and organisations should adopt robust passwords, implement multi-factor authentication, steer clear of public networks, promptly update software and remain vigilant against social engineering attacks.

The role of innovative technologies in promoting environmental sustainability and building climate change resilience

Industry stakeholders are increasingly adopting green practices to reduce carbon emissions and resource usage.

This includes efficient product transportation, sustainable packaging and standardised component utilisation.

We also expect to see innovative technologies being used to increase climate change resilience.

By integrating environmental sensors into security systems, for instance, we can better respond to natural disasters like floods, wildfires, landslides and avalanches.

Hikvision‘s exploration of the top seven trends reflects an industry actively navigating the landscape of change.
