Corporate settings are often the central proving ground for innovative security technologies. In many cases, businesses can afford state-of-the-art security solutions that position them to protect their employees, assets and facilities. In many cases, emerging security solutions often turn into proven ones over the course of an extended time of use in organizational environments.
For the most part, state-of-the-art security technologies are not put into use until they are proven to work, but they still come with operational or installation limitations that can create costs. These are the aspects of solutions that are often tested and improved upon when businesses use robust security platforms.
For example, deploying surveillance cameras in parking lots was too costly for a long time because running power and data cables out to devices was a major problem. Over time, the industry solved that issue using Power-over-Ethernet technology. This led to less expensive analog camera deployment and has contributed to a decreased price point in that sector. Many experts agree that analog camera solutions are becoming more prominent in the consumer market.
The trials that security solutions go through in the business segment often prove integral to making systems viable in the consumer market, creating value for homeowners.
