Businesses must take a proactive stance on protecting assets. It is not enough to have cameras catching criminals and vandals on video, business owners must find a way to stay a step ahead. Just last week, not too far from my home in Northern California, more than 70 new cars were stolen from the San Leandro Dodge dealership. Unfortunately, by the time the looters had taken over the lot, it was too late to intervene. The window of opportunity was lost.
Good news, by adopting innovative intelligent video security solutions like our Ava Aware video management system (formerly Vaion vcore), Global Axiom is able to help businesses take a proactive stance against physical security threats.
The use of machine learning brings a whole new level of agility and flexibility to monitoring services allowing security operators to detect anything unusual at any time. For example, Aware understands perimeters and behaviors, identifies, classifies, and tracks people of interest, vehicles, or other objects to send alerts before threats escalate. If the San Leandro auto dealership had deployed a solution like this, it could have been a totally different outcome.
Analytics provided through artificial intelligence (AI) also transform the manually-intensive examination of massive surveillance footage into accurate and useful results within mere minutes. Security operators can use powerful appearance, event, or image search functions to narrow down and track people or objects of interest across a car lot or any business to identify exactly who, what, and when anything is stolen or vandalized. The accuracy and speed with which data can now be retrieved are game-changing.
Also lending to speed and agility are new technologies that change video streams dynamically to bring only the relevant feeds to the attention of the operator. Real-time alerts and notifications show up on the video wall to describe the incident, the time, and the place it occurred.
