Research by IHS Markit points out a total of 70 percent of all security cameras shipped in 2018 were network cameras, whilst global shipments of HD CCTV cameras, also known as analog HD cameras, fell in 2018. As with all networkable devices, the camera and NVR are subject to cybersecurity issues, and there are several factors that make surveillance systems vulnerable, many of them linked to poor cyber health of the network.

In our September Building Services news update, we cover the facial recognition pall results, increasing popularity of DYI security systems, lighting bulbs causing health issues, upcoming industry events, growth of IoT within a security sector and more. Fire & Security The public does not trust the private sector to use facial recognition technology According to a survey by the Ada Lovelace Institute, a research body set up last year by the Nuffield Foundation, the public does not trust the private sector to use facial recognition technology ethically. The report says that “as the lines between public and private space become increasingly blurred, it is not clear to people how the technology works, when it is being used, and by whom...". The survey found no unconditional support for police to deploy facial recognition technology: rather, support is conditional upon limitations and subject to appropriate safeguards. “The fact that the deployment of a new technology, with which a significant proportion of the public are not comfortable, can be deemed technically compliant underlines the need for an informed public discourse on what new restrictions and safeguards are needed.” Read more here (Professional Security Magazine, 12/09/2019) Increasing popularity of DIY security solutions The strong increase in professionally monitored systems that are self-installed is fairly recent, and professional installation still dominates, but the DIY market is starting to impact upon professional security providers' market share. DYI security solutions do have advantages with lower-cost, contract-free monitoring options that will attract new consumers, but adopting these new offerings without eroding the base of traditional customers requires careful navigation of the current business ecosystem. The smart home market is an important area of convergence with security, where security providers can find new revenues to combat margins tightened by DIY.

Especially in the UK, as with around 6 million CCTV cameras in operation, we are one of the most video-monitored societies (roughly one camera for every eleven people!). Any CCTV system that monitors or records the activities of individuals constitutes the processing of personal data under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Chief Data Officers at local councils post their Council’s fair processing policies online, and quite often alongside subject access request (SAR) forms can be found for anyone who wants to know what personal data is kept and how it is used. As with any other form of personal data, data subjects have a right to access their own data.

What is less recognised is that the quality of artificial light has also changed but without sufficient scrutiny or understanding of the consequences. A recent reporter's investigation showed that people are experiencing health problems from all kinds of new lighting, especially LED, and suffering far more severe symptoms. We need a wider conversation, nationally and internationally, pooling professional expertise and involving us all as recipients of light. We need to talk about light.

It appears that the new system is, anecdotally, leading to better sleep and less unrest at night, as well as happier and more participating residents during the day. "In addition to the increased quiet at night as well as increased activity during the day, we also experience far fewer episodes during the day where our residents exhibit aggressive behaviour and are frustrated. They have become calmer and more happy".

For lighting inspiration, London Design Festival (londondesignfestival.com) had heaps to offer. Among others, the lighting and product designer Lee Broom has transformed his Shoreditch showroom to present Kaleidoscopia, using reflection to immerse the viewer in light and sound. Although Andrew Martin’s sumptuous interiors installation at the Chelsea Design Centre just ended, the company recently launched an Aladdin’s cave of lighting products at its destination showroom on Walton Street in Chelsea. Year-round, it showcases more than 450 lighting products from the world’s most renowned designers. The gallery has curated a collection of sculptural and atmospheric lighting to touch and compare in-store.

It will be the result of the adoption of IoT communication protocols in intruder alarm systems which will increase the average number of sensors connected to each system and could promote the wider deployment of wireless sensors in commercial installations. Recently, there have been efforts by the telecommunications industry to develop alternative networks to help resolve issues like signal pollution, insufficient range, power consumption, capacity and the cost of devices that will connect to these networks.
