The effort to improve cyber-physical security and increase safety systems has spawned a growing industry, focused on surmounting the challenge. The use of closed-circuit TV analog cameras is rapidly being replaced by higher-definition, feature-rich digital cameras for image-based security and safety systems. In comparison, digital cameras are more flexible, smarter, and more integrated with cloud services and data analytics. This article describes drop-in-place safety and security monitors, combined with cloud-based data analytics, which make it possible to quickly deploy monitoring in areas without power or networking infrastructure.
