Predictions for 2024: Artificial Intelligence in Security Systems

As we embark on a new year, Amthal is preparing for a wave of evolving security trends that will continue to redefine the landscape. These are not only in the realm of innovative products but also in our service approach and collective responsibility.

Embracing AI

The first is the industry embracing and adopting artificial intelligence in our security systems, a call that is likely to be increasingly driven by end users as they see the operational benefits. 

These advanced technologies offer unparalleled capabilities in data analysis, enabling more sophisticated threat detection, a reduction of false alarms, pattern recognition, and a proactive speedier response option (to the level of instant).

AI-driven solutions will play a crucial role in enhancing the overall efficiency and effectiveness of security measures.  The reduction of the burden on human resources has also been identified as a factor.

A greater reliance on cloud-based platforms will continue, especially for visual verification systems, access control and data storage.  Whilst many operate hybrid models, cloud-based solutions offer scalability, flexibility, and remote management capabilities, aligning with the evolving needs of businesses seeking efficient and accessible security infrastructure.

By leveraging artificial intelligence in security systems and fire protection at Amthal, we can ensure complete and compliant fire and security protection for businesses around the country.

Biometric Access Trends in 2024

Biometric access control systems will go beyond traditional fingerprint recognition. In 2024, there will be advancements in:

  • Facial recognition
  • Iris scanning
  • Behavioural biometrics

These innovations not only enhance security but also contribute to a seamless and frictionless user experience, marking a significant shift in access control capability.

Personalisation in Security and Fire Protection

Each of these characteristics will evolve security technology and will have its benefits per sector challenge. At Amthal, we believe that in 2024, there will be a marked shift towards personalisation. Tailored security measures per industry, environment and even individual client requirements will become increasingly important. 

This customisation ensures that security solutions are not only effective but also aligned with unique challenges and objectives. And it will likely introduce even more focus on integrated solutions with life safety and building management solutions.

This will all have an impact on our industry, with the need for partnerships and closer collaborations. When there is still a critical issue with staff and skills shortages, we must work towards a sector where we embrace working together and sharing of information, looking to improve overall situational awareness and response capability.  

Embracing Collaborative Partnerships for Enhanced Security and Protection in 2024

As one of the nation’s trusted security and fire protection partners, Amthal has already felt the benefits of working in partnership with Honeywell and Gallagher. As security budgets and investments are predicted to increase in 2024, this cooperative approach presents our sector with a real opportunity to surge forward and deliver much-needed peace of mind.

With continuous investment and development in both our people and the technology we use, we’re able to deliver excellence for our customers.
