The future of IoT-based security to protect lives (Reader Forum)

Essence Security Stand: 5/G127

Until burglary is experienced firsthand, most people consider their homes and workplaces to be “safe spaces,” despite the ever-present risks. Security systems have long been used to mitigate these risks — from the first electromagnetic alarm of the 1850s, to the first video home surveillance of the 60s to its successor, the modern-day ever-evolving smart video detection system.

But the future boils down to IoT for security.

In the increasingly interconnected world, the Internet of Things (IoT) — an ecosystem of web-enabled smart devices that utilize embedded sensors and communication hardware to collect and share data — is bringing critical innovations to numerous industries. Home and business security is no exception.

As the IoT becomes increasingly sophisticated, it will prove invaluable in helping security providers give customers better protection and true peace of mind.
