Improving public safety is not limited to visual stimuli, either. Using a cloud video security platform connected to cameras that are also equipped with sound detection makes distinguishing between different noises, such as glass breaking or people yelling, possible. These security cameras can even pinpoint the direction a noise is coming from. So even if a car is broken into out of camera view or someone is calling for help in the shadows, devices like Ava Cameras with integrated audio analytics can still alert the necessary teams immediately.
We want cities everywhere to become a little smarter. And we recognize that overhauling a security system is time-consuming and costly. That’s why Ava strives to include third-party cameras in the platform and effectively make these devices smart. Layering the Ava Aware platform on top of third-party cameras lets them take advantage of these intelligent, intuitive, and helpful features. And whenever more cameras are needed or installed, there is a host of new hardware being developed every day by our teams.
Each day, someone in a public space could benefit from the help of rapid intervention, or a vandal could be stopped before they do serious damage to city property. Making our communities smarter and more technologically advanced can help protect residents and visitors, reduce costs, and provide a sense of security in our communities.
