Cameras aren’t as accurate as the technology that we’ve developed. Also, we believe that cameras infringe on the privacy of building occupants, employees, customers, and others.
We’ve spoken to hundreds of professionals in corporate real estate and workplace operations who say that mass deployments of cameras would be negatively received by their employees and visitors. There’s also a large amount of research suggesting that cameras fundamentally change people’s behavior, which prevents you from accurately tracking how space is utilized. As soon as someone is aware they’re under surveillance, they change their behavior.
