When looking to deploy a smart security system, it is important to consider not only how the smart functionality will enhance the level of protection on offer, but will also how it can increase the additional benefits for the end user. Smart solutions must deliver a range of functions to increase value. Adding audio to a system can help achieve this, as Håkan Hansson, Global Product Manager Audio at Axis Communications, explains.
