Can the security industry keep up with the evolving promises of ai?
Director // Security Expert
Early adopters of artificial intelligence (AI) in the security industry already make use of the technology to protect business and residential areas. Surveillance (CCTV) cameras sense motion, provide live video playback and have night vision.
This is tried and tested AI at work, and this technology has been protecting homes and businesses in South Africa for some time. It represents an early use of AI that has proven itself to be effective and safe.
Could unlocking new doors introduce new security threats?
AI is evolving and unlocking new doors, but is that really what we need when it comes to home security?
The latest evolution of AI is starting to utilise facial recognition technology and smart home integration, including voice-activated systems for entering the home for added convenience. The Internet of Things (IoT) is pushing the use of AI technology in the home environment.
While this type of AI application clearly has its benefits, it’s possible that this technology could also make us vulnerable to new cyber threats and hackers, which could present a significant challenge for the use this type of technology in the home.
That’s why it’s wise to apply some caution before rushing in with new AI applications in your home, especially if you haven’t carefully considered all the necessary security measures you need to take.
Outpacing new cybersecurity threats
New AI technology not only needs to keep pace with cybersecurity threats but to outpace them, especially if it is to avoid vulnerabilities that could add additional risks to the environments it is meant to be protecting.
As the technology matures, the latest generation of residential security systems aims to monitor and analyse cybersecurity issues in a more proactive way. Residents will need to review and update their systems more often as the technology continues to evolve and new security risks crop up.
If you’re considering adopting the latest AI technology in your home environment, speak to security experts who have extensive experience in the area and who can advise you on the risks and possible exposure, and ensure that you are protected with the most up-to-date and advanced counter-measures.
