The term “mobile surveillance” is used to describe a network of devices that include mobile phones and apps, with or without the role of CCTV cameras. The idea of monitoring an industrial process or abnormalities in public places isn’t new, but modern technologies allow managers to track their executives through apps and understand how their territories and assets are being used through cameras installed in strategic locations (inside vehicles, at street corners, etc.). With the combination of video and mobile apps, personnel at the management level can easily discover issues and resolve them quickly.
Cell phone spying is another form of mobile surveillance, in which, as the term suggests, the person being ‘watched’ is not aware of the surveillance. They can be useful for nabbing criminals, especially when there is a warrant for the activity.
Industrial and government applications
Fleets, including trucks and heavy equipment carriers are manned by employees who are best managed through mobile surveillance. Role-based apps have become widely accepted in the transportation and manufacturing sectors, ultimately benefiting the end user. Whether it is city buses or international trains, the company’s workers can be tracked and consequently the safety of thousands of passengers can be improved.
Similarly, in other sectors such as military and private security, traditional surveillance systems are giving way to modern counterparts to solve issues related to safety of people, quality of production, business management and more.
Police and government organizations are in the need of mobile surveillance vehicles manufacturers on a frequent basis.
Let’s find out how surveillance technology can bring a new experience in today’s world:
Archive audiovisual data for simplifying investigation processes whenever they ensue
Automate an intelligence-driven alert system for higher authorities to know about incidents and possible lack of security
Track the movement of cargo, drivers and operators from any remote location
Use a two-way communication system to alert executives on lack of adherence to protocol
Alert security forces on action required with real-time data (including video) for decreasing the reaction time
Take quick decisions based on large-scale surveillance of a workforce or region, so that personnel can be deployed in a planned manner
Connect your surveillance system to IoT so that you can validate better and seamlessly share footage with interpol
Develop knowledge in terms of archived information to identify patterns
Lead the way to a more secure environment in a cost-effective manner
Share information based on surveillance with stakeholders to explain and inform
A mobile-based security system should be holistic. The inclusion of CCTV cameras should not be avoided unless it makes no sense at all. Companies may often need footage at unexpected moments, especially for legal complications, and thus, keeping a record of video should be prioritized. Fortunately, with secure cloud storage having become reality, the idea of video surveillance through mobile phones can be implemented across any specific framework within a high-security environment, even though on-premise is a preferred choice.
Surveillance may be an age-old concept, but more recently, security and surveillance groups are using technologies that allow video sharing across platforms. It allows different organizations and bodies under an organization to communicate, in detail, and share relevant information without any loopholes. As a result, modern surveillance systems should be made to work better, especially when you can rely on cross-platform features these days.
In the age of internet, online data cannot be avoided. It should be linked to the surveillance system in a way that specific events or alerts can be related to real-time data. Nowadays, cameras have the capability of detecting abnormal behaviour as well. Correlating that with real-time data before sending an alert to specific personnel in charge of the system will provide the most comprehensive version of ‘what happened’. At the end of the day, such capabilities reduce overheads, improve accuracy of decisions, make work life less hectic and keep personnel more responsive.
