    Artificial Intelligence

    Artificial intelligence allows machines to do jobs previously done by people. This technology allows cameras and control room equipment identify a wide range of threats automatically and in real time across hundreds or even thousands of cameras – allowing security teams to respond immediately to protect people and assets.

    How does it Work?

    Artificial intelligence systems become more intelligent over time, it builds databases of potential threats and reacts to new events accordingly. Systems can ‘think for themselves’ and alert teams of any suspicious events or people caught on camera.

    Artificial intelligence technologies use advanced algorithms based on Deep learning to distinguish between different kinds of security events and threats.

    Technologies incorporated into the portfolio include:

    Facial Recognition

    This allows law enforcement personnel identify suspects and commercial teams to identify VIP customers in real time

    Vehicle Identification

    This can be used to identify number plates and recognise different tuypes of vehicles, including the make and model, or to trigger alerts when vehicles enter restricted areas.

    Perimeter Protection

    This helps organisations identify real threats by distinguishing people and vehicles to other moving objects to reduce false alarm activations.

    Business Intelligence

    This employs people counting, queue detection and heat mapping technologies which can enhance operational efficiency by making use of a data reports.
