Modern, Blockchain-Based Fire Protection Solutions through In-School Security Cameras
Today’s modern camera systems possess numerous analytic functions, such as face detection, headcount, or thermal detection. In order to increase the security, however, the further development of these features is recommended, in the best interest of fire protection. The present article discusses the introduction of a camera system which would be capable of determining the students’ whereabouts within the premises in an automated way. Thus, the system has to be able to determine who, when, and where is located within the premises of the educational institution in question. This could provide useful information in case of a fire within the institution. Thereby, the security service or rescue teams could determine the exact location of the students – even by name – and their number, and they could rescue the students stuck inside more easily. Furthermore, the storage of the video footage is most frequently saved in ‘traditional’ clouds, whereas the solutions based on decentralised clouds provide greater security. The aim of the research is to introduce a solution for fire protection, based on a security camera system which is considered an outstanding development nowadays.
