Video
AI Augments Alerts
AI is allowing
video to look
beyond the
presence of
humans to
identify actual
circumstances
where human
activity is
prohibited.
- Steve Walker,
STANEY Security
New, sophisticated user
dashboards, such as Calipsa's
False Alarm Filtering Platform,
can provide a visual summary
of total alarms, including
a performance overview of
video analytics over selected
time periods.
ple example is a camera and AI see something
every day such as a person putting trash in a
dumpster. The AI looks at the times, the person's
physical makeup, and the type of trash
cans and then that becomes a 'normal event.'
However, when either someone else takes out
the trash or the trash is being dumped outside
the normal timeframes, the AI determines on
its own that this is abnormal behavior and
alerts someone. "
AI augments the operator for much faster
processing times, Rao-Russell, treasurer and
immediate past-president of the Partnership
for Priority Video Verified Response (PPVAR),
adds. For instance, they can set the analytics to
notice a car in a loading zone for a specified
time during off hours. " Previously, we would
have only received a motion that required an
operator to watch what was happening. We are
also using deep learning to filter known false
alarms, to allow us to only see what is happening.
This also allows the end user to be involved
in the process to ensure the fastest response. "
Adoption on the Rise
From Walker's perspective, demand for video
verification services remains highest in areas
where traditional security solutions struggle
- namely outdoor applications. Video verification
enables broad coverage in complex outdoor
target-rich environments such as equipment
storage, vehicle storage and outdoor retail
environments where the use of traditional security
devices is difficult or impossible to effectively
deploy. Outdoor environments are notorious
for false alarms caused by unexpected yet
normal activity from humans, animals, moving
shadows, flashes of light and weather events.
" Video verification allows for a quick assessment
of alarms and is effective at eliminating
false requests for police response, " he states.
" In addition to the natural events, a poorly
designed system will add to the high volumes
of alarms, all of which unnecessarily consume
monitoring center operator labor at rates that
drive pricing to unacceptable levels. "
As Hertel points out, " Typically, you need
to add cameras to adequately cover the facility.
These cameras need to be able to integrate with
either the intrusion system or a platform that
allows you to be to capture prealarm activity
through the alarm condition. Most systems are
upgradeable to video. "
Analytics and AI have the ability to reduce
costs for customers even in environments that
otherwise generate high levels of false alarms,
Walker believes. In addition to traditional
video verification solutions, he reports that
AI and machine learning are finding use cases
for nonvideo verification, as well. These would
be applications that help customers better understand
efficiencies of employees (movement
over time) as well as patterns for customers, including
where they go during business hours,
where they linger/dwell, going where they are
not supposed to, and the corresponding time
of day for each.
In terms of who the prime adaptors of AIbased
video verification software are, Baker
points to central monitoring stations typically
working with security dealers or integrators
and their roster of small to medium-sized business
(SMB) as well as enterprise customers. He
also sees interest growing in the technology
from government, healthcare, education, car
dealerships and property management verticals.
" Recently, we've seen utilities and safe
cities programs incorporating false alarm reduction
software. "
It's important to educate end users on the improved
peace of mind they'd have with a video
verified alarm system. As Rao-Russell explains,
" It is always a partnership, especially with verification.
Sonitrol is dedicated to education and
continued support including maintaining cameras,
training end users, and ensuring compliance
with current standards. Without the continued
relationship, many verification applications will
fail due to poor quality and user caused alarms. "
