Hospitality venues are reopening and restarting their operations. The intent is the same as it’s always been: to offer guests the most welcoming, and comfortable experience. But safety has taken on a whole new meaning. The current health crisis may have fundamentally changed the hospitality landscape, yet existing or future video surveillance systems and capabilities are projected to play a crucial role in helping physical security teams do more with less.
According to a recent Ava Security survey, 40% of hospitality venues and hotels already use video surveillance and video monitoring systems to cover reception, check-in, and check-out areas, to help ensure proper procedures are being followed to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Why not use those existing cameras to gather extensive video security insights to help with a safe reopening?
Intelligent analytics and real-time incident detection can help hospitality staff track occupancy, prevent overcrowding, and ensure social distancing compliance. Additionally, they can perform contact tracing, streamline operations by optimizing cleaning and energy levels, and improve the overall customer experience.
