Depending on the size of a hotel hundreds or even thousands of people pass through on a daily basis. A hotel video surveillance system helps to monitor the flow of guests, staff, contractors and vendors and protect against theft, vandalism, break inns and damage of property. It is important for a hotel to offer their guests peace of mind and relaxation during their stay. On the other hand, hotels also need to balance the number of cameras with their guests’ desire for privacy. Guests want to feel safe, but they don’t want to feel like cameras are obsessively recording them.

The main application area for video surveillance technology in hotels is the monitoring of publicly accessible areas such as lobbies, lounges, hallways, gyms and pool decks in order to prevent any unauthorized access. Also parking spaces are included in the security concept as most guests sleep better knowing that their car is being monitored by an intelligent video surveillance system. Panoramic cameras can monitor the outdoor hotel area, while cameras with corridor mode can monitor hallways. Intelligent video appliances with smart detection can automatically detect objects in predefined areas and trigger an alarm. Lobby areas require highly detailed facial images and no blind spots. Fisheye cameras ensures that all corners are covered. Intelligent appliances build on face recognition algorithms can distinguish visitors from hotel guests.

Along with providing security, a professional hotel video surveillance solution in combination with AI smart appliances can also help to develop personalized guest experiences and identify unrecognized revenue opportunities. AI technology can distilling information and deducing patterns into actionable insights to increase return business. It is important to remain competitive in an aggressive hospitality market.
