A Closer Look at Deep Sentinel for Business

Deep Sentinel for Business provides weatherproof cameras that use AI to detect
potential threats, according to the company. It alerts Deep Sentinel LiveSentinel guards about any unusual activity and enables these guards to intervene via two-way audio and a 104dB siren.

Furthermore, Deep Sentinel for Business LiveSentinel guards -- essentially, remote monitoring professionals working in Deep Sentinel SOCs -- can respond to alerts in 10 seconds or less, the company said. They also can contact law enforcement within seconds.

Deep Sentinel offers a security system that combines AI with human monitoring. In doing so, Deep Sentinel helps homeowners and business operators prevent crimes before they happen, the company indicated.

Market Opportunity

Meanwhile, Deep Sentinel looks poised to capitalize on a global video surveillance market that is projected to grow.

The global video surveillance market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 11.8 percent between 2018 and 2025 and could be worth $43.8 billion by 2025, industry analyst Research and Markets stated. Also, increasing use of AI in video surveillance systems is one of the factors that could drive this market's growth.
