With the COVID 19 vaccine rollout, stay-at-home orders are slowly being lifted and some nonessential businesses are being allowed to resume operations. Even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently recommended schools return to in-person learning. 

Whether you make the decision to reopen your doors or ride the closures out a little longer, your cloud video management system (VMS) can help you better manage your organization and keep visitors (employees, customers, gym members, church congregants, students, etc.) safe and healthy. 

Using analytics, businesses can detect and track people or objects, as well as report and analyze activity that takes place in the video. It’s a vital tool for building intelligent business security – and this has never been more true than in a pandemic. Your cloud VMS can help your organization survive and thrive with features and analytics, such as:  

  1. People Counting – Advanced analytics, like People Counting, Line Crossing, and Loitering, can be used to identify exceeded headcounts, social gatherings, and general personnel movement patterns. 
  1. Remote Check-In – Cloud access anytime lends to peace of mind for business and property owners with currently unoccupied storefronts and buildings.
  1. Mask Detection and Social Distancing – An open application programming interface (API) platform allows for integration with multiple advanced technologies that can detect things like mask and distancing compliance. 
  1. Guard Tour Review – Use motion alert schedules to track unauthorized personnel during off hours.
  1. Elevated Body Temperature Screening – Use thermal technology with integrated facial detection to screen and alert for preliminary individual body temperatures.
  1. Occupancy Monitoring – Using Local Display Station features, users can monitor front of house and other lobby-like environments, while isolated from the area.
  1. Remote Operations Management – Minimize social interaction of employees with video monitoring of workflow and automated processes.

While today, we may need insights into social distancing, temperature measurement, and mask wearing; tomorrow might bring a need we can’t even predict until it happens. But, just knowing your business is still secure, even while you’re away, is a critical tool for operations, asset management, and most importantly, peace of mind.
