Raffaele di Crosta: "We Are Deeply Immersed in the Context of Industry 4.0"

07.09.2023 - Raffaele di Crosta, CEO Ksenia Security, talks about changing the game by providing strong, powerful and reliable edge-AI hardware in an open platform. For our 20 year jubilee, GIT SECURITY has asked leaders in the industry to give an outlook.

What do you think was the greatest game-changing technology for the ­security industry in the last 20 years if you had to choose one?

Raffaele di Crosta: If I had to choose one game-changing technology in the last 20 years in the field of security and home/building automation, I would say it is the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT refers to the network of interconnected physical devices embedded with sensors, software, and connectivity that enables them to collect and exchange data, thereby merging the physical and virtual worlds. The proliferation of IoT devices has opened the doors to an entirely new way of approaching security since they provide incredible added value, such as enhanced coverage and effectiveness in detecting unusual behaviors, remote monitoring and management, and real-time data analysis.

Moreover, they can communicate with each other and with centralized control systems, enabling intelligent automation and proactive security measures. A clear example of IoT efficient security system is our lares 4.0 control panel: it can send alerts to homeowners’ smartphones when a security intrusion is detected, they can automatically adjust lighting and temperature based on occupancy patterns to enhance security and energy efficiency, and that’s not all.

“The next ten years will be dominated by AI applications.” Why would you agree or disagree?

Raffaele di Crosta:
I agree. AI has the great potential to analyze large volumes of data collected from IoT devices, identify patterns, and detect anomalies or potential security threats. By leveraging machine learning techniques, AI can continuously improve its threat detection capabilities and adapt to evolving attack vectors to make homes and buildings smarter and efficient.

In the context of home/building automation, AI algorithms can enable predictive maintenance, energy optimization, and intelligent automation, thus adjust lighting, heating, and cooling systems accordingly to optimize energy consumption. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has undoubtedly made remarkable advancements in various fields, but the importance of humans cannot be understated. Human involvement is essential for providing context, ethical decision-making, creativity, emotional intelligence, adaptability, and overall responsibility. The synergy between them has the potential to drive innovation, enhance productivity, and solve complex challenges in a responsible and beneficial manner.

Your company will have a great impact on the industry in the next ten years because…?

Raffaele di Crosta:
Ksenia Security will undoubtedly make a difference in the industry because we have a clear vision regarding the company’s direction, future objectives, and the most effective way to achieve them.
We are deeply immersed in the context of Industry 4.0: a real industrial revolution that embraces cutting-edge digital technologies, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and other innovations, allowing us to collect and analyze a vast amount of data to prevent failures and optimize production.

Our strategy is fully focused on this new smart phase, extending this concept to Security, Home Automation, Access Control, and Video Verification, and making our system the optimal choice for various sectors, including residential, commercial, and industrial.

In this context, we aim to offer our customers highly professional security solutions, integrated with the latest smart technologies, oriented towards both Smart Home and Smart Building.

Looking ahead, we will continue to seize emerging opportunities and innovations, with the goal of providing a 360-degree vision of security to meet the growing needs of end-users.
All of this is driven by our attitude towards Innovation, Reliability, Sustainability, and Design Made in Italy, which are values that guide every company’s decision.
