Eyeforce INSIGHTS: The Travel Industry is Going Through a Post-pandemic Bounce. Here’s Why You Should Begin Targeting Hotels

As we all know, the pandemic decimated many retail businesses around the world; none more so than the travel and hospitality industry. Hotels, in particular, were razed as travel came to a screeching halt. Now that we have the pandemic firmly in our rearview mirrors, a resurgence in the travel industry has seen a robust comeback according to a recent Statista report. The report forecasts an annual growth rate (CAGR 2022-2026) of 10.8% for hotels, a market volume of close to $118 billion by 2026. This is a significant surge YoY.

What does this mean for the security industry? Lessons learned from the pandemic weren’t just relegated to health and safety measures. Consumers have rightfully demanded improved security as well with most criminals using face masks to hide their identities when committing brazen attacks on civilians. This has compelled many travelers to demand improved security in hotels, prompting many to expand their amenities and invest heavily in security solutions and related services. The reason is pretty obvious. A well-designed and strategically integrated video surveillance system can provide hotel operators and their on-site management teams the video intelligence they need to deliver effective protection to their guests. The ubiquitous nature and total control that an enhanced state-of-the-art surveillance system can deliver makes overall security, loss prevention and risk management more efficient. 

Artificial intelligence (A.I.) powered analytics have also become more accurate and affordable due to accelerated developments in this space. A.I. driven video analytics have been proven to be impactful in multiple settings, enabling faster detection, verification, and response. In hotel settings, they’re enabling security staff and general operations teams to respond to incidents more quickly and efficiently, and in keeping with standard operating procedures, from evacuations to lockdowns.

How Remote Guarding can help hotels

An area where deep learning analytics is proving especially beneficial for hotels is their Remote Guarding capabilities. A.I.-supported remote surveillance systems expand the capabilities of video surveillance by utilizing A.I. to perform what were previously labor-intensive and costly onsite guarding and monitoring tasks at an unrivaled rate of accuracy. The latest Remote Guarding capabilities can provide enterprise-level monitoring to Hotel operators more affordably. A.I.-assisted alerts and notifications for intrusion detection, loitering and object detection, takes pressure off hotel security details. This type of virtual guarding saves them the expense of hiring additional security guards onsite. And because they’re human beings, guards can become easily distracted, miss something outside of their line of sight, and can only be in one place at one time. A.I.-powered Remote Guarding and video surveillance, in stark contrast, can identify all types of suspicious behavior. They can even flag unusual objects or questionable packages. Virtual lines can also be set up to alert should they be crossed. It is this kind of customization that enables Remote Guarding to meet the specific needs of a hotel based on the location, risks, operational requirements, and more. These A.I.-powered surveillance systems can be leveraged regardless of how many cameras are in use concurrently. With so many hotels looking to upgrade their security to have the intelligence of an A.I.-powered surveillance system, this is a great opportunity for you to begin outreach just as the travel industry is bouncing back in full force.
