The software is designed to detect the human form so that false alarms from dogs, birds, deer, leaves, wind, etc. are eliminated. It can also watch vehicles. “Virtual tripwires” or “virtual fence” can be defined around any area and configuration. High definition images can be recorded when incidents are recorded. The software looks for suspicious behavior. Pre-set rules are programmed customized to your situation. For example, someone approaching an exit door from from the outside is suspicious. Exiting is okay. Rules include an object in the area (person or vehicle); loitering in the area beyond allowed time; crowd alert (too many people congregating; object missing or removed.
Our system can stand alone, or it can integrate with elements of your existing system. Your existing alarm and fire alarm system should remain in effect. However, video analytics can be applied to interior security as well. Stored data is more compressed because there is only recording of real incidents, not false alarms. Data can be stored for two years optionally. Otherwise typically storage is the most recent two months.
WHAT IS VIDEO ANALYTICS?
Video analytics or video automatic incident detection is the technique of using a computer algorithm to monitor video (normally CCTV surveillance) cameras automatically in real time to provide management information and alarms.
HOW DOES VIDEO ANALYTICS WORK?
Video analytics or content analysis is the capability of automatically analysing video through the use of software to detect and determine events while providing information related to the events taking place in real time.
HOW CAN VIDEO ANALYTICS BENEFIT ME?
By processing live video in real time the following are typical security enhancements; identification of suspects, detection of trespassers into restricted or sensitive areas, identification of these trespassers in addition to proactive threat level assessment and identify predefined events and behaviour.
