  • How to get the best from workplace CCTV systems

    Workplace CCTV systems can provide essential monitoring and surveillance, especially in the case of hazardous area CCTV camera stations, which can remotely monitor staff and equipment located in potentially dangerous zones. In research published in August 2018, the TUC found that health and safety benefits are among the most obvious reasons to introduce workplace surveillance in any form, while monitoring people who work alone as part of their job can have benefits in protecting their safety and security.   The TUC recommends that surveillance should not be covert, as workers want to know when they are being watched, and that there should be a clear reason why surveillance is being carried out. More than four fifths (81%) of employees want their employers to justify why new monitoring is introduced - making methods with a clear purpose, such as hazardous area CCTV camera stations, likely to rank higher in terms of employee approval. This is reflected in the fact that CCTV ranked fourth out of 12 methods of surveillance covered in the TUC survey in terms of how acceptable it is perceived to be among employees.   As many as two thirds of workers are willing to be monitored by CCTV cameras in the workplace, an indication of how the technology has become commonplace and widely accepted, due in part to workers recognising the net benefits to safety, security and other performance indicators when clear and transparent surveillance is carried out.

  • Microwave motion sensors drive global market growth

    Rapid growth in the global motion sensors market is being driven particularly by demand for microwave motion sensors, according to Transparency Market Research. Microwave motion sensors like the Ex-Mo Motion Sensor employ the Doppler principle to detect movement by measuring changes in the wavelength of microwaves reflected back to the sensor by moving objects like vehicles and people. This allows automated switching of electronic devices, for example motion triggered night-time lighting for hazardous areas, reducing energy costs while removing the need for manual switching upon entry into the area. In a report published earlier this year, Transparency identified microwave motion sensors as a major driving force in the market in 2018, saying the technology is currently in "strong demand". The analysis is backed up in figured from Zion Market Research published in September, which forecast substantial growth in the global motion sensors market in the years to come. Zion's calculations use 2016 as a baseline, when revenues worldwide from motion sensor sales reached just under $4 billion. But by 2022, this is predicted to more than double, to in excess of $8 billion, achieving a compound annual growth rate of 12.8% across all motion sensor technologies, microwave included.
