    AES, the Spanish Association of Security Companies, has said that “the main challenge for our industry over the coming years will be, as it traditionally has been, the protection of life and property.” To do this, “we consider that adaptation to IoT technologies will drive development in the physical security and electronic surveillance industry.” The association observes “Five megatrends that we must make the focus of our strategy: energy efficiency, globalization, urbanisation; demographic change, and Internet connectivity.” They said, “especially the connectivity of things, services and people will have an impact on security solutions by offering opportunities that do not yet exist in verticals such as retail, transport and logistics, sports venues and hospitals.”
