Rather than continuously recording data, a VMS may also implement motion detection to reduce the amount of data to be recorded. In older analog security camera systems, the cameras were "dumb" devices only capable of producing a video signal continuously, and any video signal processing had to be done by the recording VMS. With modern megapixel network cameras, the cameras are much more sophisticated. Motion detection can now be distributed, so that the cameras do motion detection themselves and only send video when motion is detected. Alternately, motion detection can still also occur in t

A VMS can be the software component of a network video recorder and digital video recorder, though in general a VMS tends to be more sophisticated and provide more options and capabilities than a packaged NVR device. Due to improvements in technology, it is necessary to make a distinction between a VMS and the built-in features of modern network based security cameras. Many modern network cameras offer internal capabilities to record and review video directly themselves via a web browser and without the use of a VMS. However a camera's built-in web interface is typically exclusive to the came

A video management system, also known as video management software or a video management server, is a component of a security camera system that in general: Collects video from cameras and other sources Records / stores that video to a storage device Provides an interface to both view the live video, and access recorded video

While business analytics has a more broad focus on the who, what, where and when of business intelligence, behavioral analytics narrows that scope, allowing one to take seemingly unrelated data points in order to extrapolate, predict and determine errors and future trends. It takes a more holistic and human view of data, connecting individual data points to tell us not only what is happening, but also how and why it is happening.

Behavioral analytics utilizes the massive volumes of raw user event data captured during sessions in which consumers use application, game, or website, including traffic data like navigation path, clicks, social media interactions, purchasing decisions and marketing responsiveness. Also, the event-data can include advertising metrics like click-to-conversion time, as well as comparisons between other metrics like the monetary value of an order and the amount of time spent on the site. These data points are then compiled and analyzed, whether by looking at session progression from when a user f

Behavioral analytics is a recent advancement in business analytics that reveals new insights into the behavior of consumers on eCommerce platforms, online games, web and mobile applications, and IoT. The rapid increase in the volume of raw event data generated by the digital world enables methods that go beyond typical analysis[promotional language] by demographics and other traditional metrics that tell us what kind of people took what actions in the past. Behavioral analysis focuses on understanding how consumers act and why, enabling accurate predictions about how they are likely to act in

Alarm I/O - A VMS may provide the ability to monitor alarm inputs and act on them in some manner, including: Sending alarm outputs to activate ancillary equipment such as lighting Beginning recording on one or more camera sources Sending an alert message to one or more people, via email, cellphone SMS, or over the Internet to a client application or mobile phone app. Alarm inputs and outputs can be handled through separate interface components

Video content analysis (also video content analytics, VCA) is the capability of automatically analyzing video to detect and determine temporal and spatial events. This technical capability is used in a wide range of domains including entertainment, health-care, retail, automotive, transport, home automation, flame and smoke detection, safety and security. The algorithms can be implemented as software on general purpose machines, or as hardware in specialized video processing units. Many different functionalities can be implemented in VCA. Video Motion Detection is one of the simpler forms wh

MAKING money instead of SPENDING money on your Surveillance System - AI-Powered Analytics In A Crowd

MAKING money instead of SPENDING money on your Surveillance System

When an organization implements a “Surveillance System” it is always an expense item – a cost which the organization feels they have to bear to minimize their risk. However most surveillance systems are only useful after an event (and usually long after the event) and then the user has to spend even more manpower to do a lengthy and time consuming search. Hence, such systems which can essentially only record and display do not usually reduce the risk to any significant extent. So the organization spends money but does not actually reduce its risk.

But it does not have to be that way.

Adding analytics converts the system from one that is only useful after the event into one which can help you manage an event and at times prevent the event. The analytics can be set up so that there is virtually no incremental cost (ask us about our Smart VMS which enables this). Why would one implement a dumb system which cannot reduce risk when one can get an intelligent and useful one at the same price?
Smart analytics can actually generate a positive and tangible Return on Investment. Below are just 3 examples of customers making money or saving money using their Analytics system:
• A local government organization was receiving complaints about people slipping and falling at the rate of 5 per week. They used to just pay the person a few thousand dollars to avoid litigation. With the system in place they were able to respond immediately, provide tender loving care and thus avoid having to make a payout. This also reduced their insurance costs significantly.
• A shopping mall uses their security system to calculate the dwell time of shoppers (ie the amount of time a person spent in an area). The system can also track big spenders and VIPs in an anonymized way without infringing on their privacy. Based on this they understand the travel and spending patterns of shoppers within their facility. They then use this to attract new retailers. They have been able to charge a premium price for some locations based on this information.
• A major commercial building used to have a large control room which was continuously manned. With our Automated Response system the security officers can now wander about and when there is an incident that requires their attention the officer nearest to the incident gets information of the event on his Smart Phone with instructions on where to go. His phone becomes a mobile control room. This has resulted in a massive saving in manpower and in real estate and significantly improved efficiency with just a click on his walking control room.

Make sure your system is not a sink hole for your money. Use it to save money or to make money.
