According to a study done by Accenture, nearly 75% of break-ins happen inside residential plots and the loss incurred in a single breach is nearly $2230. Given the above, there is a dire need to devise and develop home security and surveillance systems. These would enforce a protective layer on and off the grid to protect and guard the houses.

Adhering to the above, house owners switched to security systems that would ring a bell when someone would try to pick their lock. Though efficient, this system wasn't designed to encrypt the ecosystem and many are capable of breaching the software to lockpick without activating the alarm.

This then paved way for a robust surveillance system, one that would secure the hardware and additional software residing within the residential areas.

How Does Home Security and Surveillance System Help?

Whether it is the building security or home privacy, surveillance is something that everyone needs to invest in. Poorly designed devices and systems tend to provide an inferior quality of video and still images. This deteriorates the overall footage rendered by the system.

Imagine a situation when there has been a break-in within your complex. You set up a meeting and try to recover the footage from the surveillance systems only to find that the person was far away from the device and his face is not clearly visible. Upon zooming in, the image gets blurred and you cannot view anything beyond the fuzzy lines.

Having such a system is similar to not having one. What's important here is to replace your existing system with one that powers better quality footage. We recommend using the one that is designed using the NXP family of application processors. These are not just efficient but come with multiprocessing technology that facilitates better surveillance.

Given the pace at which the concept of Smart Home is extending and scaling, the number of interconnected devices has dramatically increased. It is important to embed an interface that can effortlessly understand diverse protocols, in a concurrent environment. The NXP powered devices are so designed that they can offer the needed quality and optimizing the final solution.

Further, the fact that these are wireless, one can charge them wirelessly. All of this eases the job of hosting a security system and monitoring them. NXP® solutions (such as, NXP iMX8) facilitate the creation of interactive user interface displays. These can efficiently connect and collaborate with the IoT enabled devices, residing in your Smart home and force them to act in a certain manner.

Advantages of Smart Surveillance with NXP

An excellent advantage of implementing the NXP powered device in home security and surveillance is a video doorbell. The aforementioned solution is so designed that it fosters smarter entry in the area. It is decked up with the concept of facial recognition. Only the ones that have been authorized to pass through the door can successfully authenticate their identity.

This is an excellent way to ward off the possibility of break-ins and thefts. The solution comes along with an intercom facility where the guest can announce its arrival and then seek a solution to step in the area.

What's best about the processor is that they have been adorned with a list of features that ensure optimal performance. For one, these systems are encrypted and extremely secured. Getting into the device to hack the same isn't easy. Further, these are wirelessly charged, so the user will never have to worry about replacing the battery.

The overall concept of Smart security is driven by the top technologies namely, IoT, automation and machine learning. These embedded over the NXP processors facilitate Smart interaction with the servers and validate the entrance of only legitimate members.

All in all, home security and surveillance systems need to be robust and secured. Thanks to the onset...
