Safety and the internet of things

When referring to the Internet of Things we refer to any device that is connected to the Internet, which as time passes, are more domestically and professionally. Today there are many safety devices based on IP that replace the old analog systems, so that manufacturers of security products are challenged with the task of helping the user integrate the great volume of information generated by IoT systems into effective business intelligence.

The road to the design of intelligent devices began in 1995. Back then, the technology of thin clients was a gamble led mainly by Oracle and Netscape. This solution allowed companies to put in the hands of multiple users a greater processing power, thanks to the ability to share a common high-capacity server.

Axis then redesigned the concept of thin client and invented a technology called “Thin Server” in order to have a more intelligent network device and ensure that infrastructure sharing was cheaper and easier to manage. This movement connected perfectly with the idea of expanding the horizons of a business. The thin server technology quickly became the benchmark for the development of server systems for the connection of almost any computer to a network, or automation systems from optical storage to model trains or Christmas lights.

Subsequently, the first network cameras were introduced in 1996 and in 1999 LINUX was integrated to create an open architecture that converts network monitoring devices into practical solutions for the entire security sector. In recent years, given the expectations raised by the IoT technology, security products based on the concept of IoT also await their chance. These devices can automatically obtain and share useful data with other IoT devices.

Other areas in which the IoT technology can be helpful is emergency terminals. Smart thermostats, for example, send alerts to homeowners while they are traveling. Spy cameras allow parents to monitor what happens at home with their children while they are with their nanny. And some smart refrigerators even handle, automatically, certain products when they start to run low.

In the world of security, IoT solutions help companies manage all their security systems from intrusion sensors and fire alarms to video surveillance systems, access control, speakers, emergency terminals or stations with video, from a single platform. IoT monitoring devices may even be associated with environmental control systems, systems for heating, ventilation and cooling of a building work within certain parameters.
