Eagle Eye Networks, a global provider of cloud video surveillance, has released its 2023 Cloud Video Surveillance Camera Worldwide Statistics report.

The company says the report is based on aggregate data from a sample set of 200,000 security cameras, in 100 countries, connected to the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS. Included in the report are 175 different camera manufacturers, and thousands of organizations including corporate enterprises, retail businesses, restaurants, warehouses, industrial, educational, health-care and hospitality facilities, and multifamily residences.

The report’s findings include:

  • 74% of businesses that use security cameras with two-way audio use a connected IP speaker for communication, while 26% use a security camera with built-in two-way audio capabilities.
  • 44% of enterprises in 2022 use a combination of cloud and on-premise retention.
  • Security cameras use AI to detect vehicles 72% of the time in the Americas, compared to 57% of the time in Europe.

“For this first time, the report includes a snapshot of how AI is being leveraged in cloud video surveillance, and how businesses are deploying licence plate recognition,” said Dean Drako, founder and CEO, Eagle Eye Networks, in a statement. “AI will have a tremendous impact on the use of video surveillance in the coming years. This report is intended to provide real data and trends analysis for organizations that are investing in a new or upgraded cloud video surveillance system.”
