The latest-generation of SMB surveillance solutions support enhanced site security for end-users, while providing significant revenue opportunities for Hikvision resellers’ business. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) have many of the same surveillance and security requirements as larger organisations. They need to identify and react to perimeter breaches in real time, and they need to automate footage searches to save time for their security teams.
The challenge is, how can resellers provide small and medium-sized customers sophisticated and highly effective surveillance solutions at a price point that is appropriate for their business? And how can resellers grow their revenues and bottom line in the process?
Hikvision is continuously innovating its product lines to deliver cost-effective surveillance solutions needed by SMBs. As a result, they can enjoy new levels of site security, while resellers can focus on growing their revenues.
One key technology that can help resellers achieve these goals is Hikvision AcuSense, which makes advanced video content analysis and deep learning capabilities available to SMBs for the first time. This technology gives SMBs a cost-effective way to protect their locations and assets, while helping resellers building a uniquely competitive go-to-market proposition.
Paired with Hikvision cameras such as ColorVu cameras that provide superior video images even at night, the AcuSense deep learning algorithm helps SMB customers maximise security with efficient human and vehicle detection. This helps them react to security threats in real time, while significantly reducing false alarms and associated personnel costs.
Hikvision AcuSense works by disregarding natural movements, such as rain or leaves, triggering alerts when vehicles or humans are detected by a camera or a backend NVR/DVR. With automated sound and light alarm functions available in certain models,
AcuSense-enabled cameras also detect would-be intruders before a security breach occurs.
With Hikvision AcuSense, SMB customers also get a “quick target search” feature that allows security teams to find footage quickly in the event of a security incident. This saves many hours for teams who would otherwise search for footage manually. There are very different requirements in the SMB market and AcuSense technology provides significant benefits in a wide range of user scenarios:
• Residential estates: Hikvision AcuSense cameras can be deployed at perimeter fences to detect break-ins and support protection of residents and their belongings. AcuSense vehicle detection can also be used to ensure that non-parking areas such as emergency exits and pedestrians are not blocked with illegal parking.
• Small office buildings and factories: Hikvision AcuSense can help security personnel to detect and prevent perimeter break-ins and to react in real time to minimise the risk of losses. AcuSense cameras and NVRs/DVRs can also be used to monitor and protect warehouses and office areas where valuable assets are located or stored.
• Retail stores: With human detection, Hikvision AcuSense can help small stores to monitor key areas such as cashier area, staff only area or a stock room, for example. Store owners would also be able to view the footage on their mobile phone and find out if there is any employee theft happening when they’re off the premises. Vehicle detection helps owners to ensure on-site parking within the store territory is allowed.
