  • The security industry cannot look ahead to 2022 without first acknowledging the significance of 2021: a year that changed every aspect of our daily lives, including how we socialise, work, communicate and collaborate. As the world started to emerge from an unprecedented global pandemic, organisations in every industry re-evaluated every aspect of their business, from how they interact with their customers to how they manage their workforces, and how they go to market. 

    This new landscape has also created new types of security challenges. Employees, customers and partners increasingly are working from remote locations, sharing and collaborating through disparate online networks, which may leave data vulnerable to theft. And, as sites are monitored remotely, new public health and safety guidelines are governing how businesses operate.

    Hanwha Techwin has responded to these challenges with new products and solutions incorporating emerging technologies – from the cloud and automation to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and deep learning, and an array of connected services and processes. 

  • As we settle into 2022, undoubtedly many security operators will be looking at their budgets and how to get the best ‘Bang for their Buck’ when it comes to investing in new technology. 

  • Version 2.3 adds new functionality to enable customers to make the most of their evolving security networks and real-world needs post-pandemic.

  • New features include customizable alerts, camera health checks and advanced real-time forensic video analysis

  • Despite the challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly four in five video security systems-related businesses reported growth in the past 12 months, according to a 23-nation survey conducted by Calipsa, a market-leading provider of deep-learning powered video analytics.

  • Canadian energy company improves operations and response times with 95 percent false alarm reduction from Calipsa. 

  • There is no doubt that Zitko is unique in the way that kindness and empathy are instilled in its identity, and while I am so proud to work here and contribute to its culture, it is a disheartening reality that so many other companies don’t share it's values.
