By integrating Prism with Security Center, retailers can extend their existing video surveillance camera system to provide valuable in-store data and metrics to monitor store traffic reports, monitor customer shopping trends, and remotely inspect store merchandising and brand displays.
It’s getting harder to go anywhere where there’s not a mounted camera (even in people’s homes). They’re becoming so ubiquitous that shoppers hardly notice them …especially during the busy holidays. But businesses are starting to take great notice, and realizing there’s more value from a security or surveillance camera than just a live view of shoppers. It’s the intelligence in the video that’s helping companies stay competitive.
While loss prevention is a valid reason from a security perspective, it is often much easier to get the budget signed off when colleagues from other departments can be convinced to support the proposal. Examples of cross-functional use of network video include dwell time analysis to allow store managers to alert their team when extra customer assistance is needed. The heat map function can be set up to proactively alert the staff about low-traffic in campaign areas so they can quickly rectify the situation. Lastly, people counting is useful for conversion rate and sales planning.

CriticalArc announced a revamped identity along with significant new SafeZone product features. The rebranding follows a period of expansion for the Australian-based security technology business, in particular across Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The rebranding also includes a new website using the new visual identity. The refreshed branding reflects the evolving functionality of CriticalArc’s SafeZone and the increasing demand for cost-effective distributed command and control solutions, driven by the need of large and multi-site organisations to improve their response to critical and everyday incidents, optimise security operations, and protect staff as well as physical assets.
