Tap into Aware’s AI capabilities to detect and stop incidents before it’s too late

Open, scalable, secure, and easy to use, Aware is a powerful cloud-based AI video management system (VMS) equipped with integrated machine learning capabilities. Suitable for both large, distributed enterprise installations and small deployments, Aware analyzes all the video feeds from all your Ava and third-party cameras all the time and in real-time. It identifies objects and events, sending instant alarms based on rules and unusual activity detection. With Aware, you can also quickly search by event, object, and similarity to find a specific person, vehicle, or event of interest through countless hours of video within seconds or minutes.

Leverage Aware’s open API and connect it to your existing sensors, access control systems, dashboards, external viewers, or communication systems to get a 360-degree overview of your environment. What’s more, Aware helps you manage all your devices and security across sites with a simple web-based interface and Android and iOS apps accessible from anywhere without additional plugins or configurations.

With Aware, you can

A modern security approach means having AI on your side to prevent information overload and focus on what’s important. Aware understands perimeters and behaviors, performs anomaly detection, identifies, classifies, and tracks people of interest, vehicles, or other objects to send alerts in real time before threats escalate.

In all security investigations, time is of the essence. Help your users and security operators complete forensic investigations with Aware’s event, object, and similarity search. Transform the manually-intensive examination of massive surveillance footage into accurate and useful results within minutes instead of days.

Gain occupancy awareness in property management and customer behavior analytics in retail and public venues to improve the customer experience. Optimize cleaning, heating, and cooling effectively, and monitor workplace productivity through hot-desking insights. Monitor traffic flows, understand and act on hot spots and high traffic areas, and access other relevant occupancy data to improve business operations. 

Aware facilitates full compliance and security by default, delivering complete peace of mind to your IT team. With automatic updates of the software from the cloud, end-to-end encrypted data and metadata, and secure remote access from anywhere in the world, it’s never been easier to prevent cybersecurity threats. We managed all your Ava product licenses through the cloud, enabling a controlled, proactive process for ensuring your system is always up-to-date.

Deploy Aware Cloud directly or use one of our highly performant Cloud Connectors to achieve a friction-free transition to the cloud, gain local storage capacity, and power your third-party cameras with AI analytics and storage. Integrate Aware with your existing security cameras, access control systems, dashboards, monitoring systems, sensors, and APIs to get more value and visibility in a single view.

Taking a proactive stance on security


Map view with Smart Presence™

Add maps of all your locations and facilities in Aware to gain enhanced situational awareness and insights. Each map can be configured and includes camera views, alarm views, as well as the ability to track and count people, vehicles, and other objects as they move on your premises.


Video view with Spotlight

Powered by deep learning, Aware uses Spotlight to change video streams dynamically to bring only the relevant feeds to the operators’ attention. Real-time alerts and notifications pop-up on the video wall to describe the incident, the time, and the place it occurred.


Timeline with Smart Presence™

The rich playback timeline in Aware’s video view provides thumbnail-based browsing of video and highlights people, vehicles, and overall motion separately. Your operators gain a better, clearer understanding of different events captured by the camera. 


Fast investigations with Smart Search™

Search by event and similarity and perform appearance and image detection powered by machine learning capabilities to comb through countless hours of video throughout your entire deployment. Reduce forensic investigation time from days to minutes, and gain more efficiency and accuracy with the same number of operators.


Occupancy counting

Use occupancy counting to monitor large facilities and keep a rolling total of the flow of people and vehicles in and out of your premises. Additionally, users can use in-view area counting to monitor specific areas where people are congregating. Aware can use API calls to create customized information displays to notify people about occupancy levels or to generate heat maps of high and low traffic areas.



Heatmaps are ideal for gaining more insights into retail, healthcare, schools and other educational facilities, public venues, hospitality locales, public transport, or federal government premises. The tool provides an enhanced awareness of customer behavior, dwell times and congestions, transportation flows, suspicious activities, and more. 

Secure remote access and link sharing

Secure sharing of recordings

Aware enables you to select clips of interest and then generate a link that you can send to relevant people, such as your Human Resources department or law enforcement authorities. When they follow this link, they can view your selected video clip without needing access credentials for Aware. You can choose the access availability or allow the viewer to download.


Single View™

Enjoy a seamless user experience and turn your existing third-party cameras into first-class citizens. You can access both third-party and Ava cameras to the cloud across all deployments using a single interface.


Simple configuration

Aware makes it easy to add cameras and maintain simple, scalable management with group configuration policies. You also get access to detailed camera information, activity logs, and advanced video adjustments in a single pane with focused user experience and automation.


Smart Recording™

Smart Recording™ switches the resolution stream for all your camera recordings. It automatically records with maximum resolution when people and vehicles are present or interesting events occur and changes to as low as 360p or no recording at all when the activity disappears to save storage space. 


Access control integrations

Security administrators get a complete picture of access control events and alerts based on specific events. Watch detailed accounts of alarms associated with accessing control points, review access and exit attempts in real-time, and even grant access to authorized staff instantly from the system.


Ava Aware mobile app (Android, iOS)

With the Ava Aware Android and iOS apps, we offer users a set of features that mirrors the Aware web client, from seeing and managing alarms to viewing live video or playback. Users will experience a natural, smooth transition from web to mobile and vice-versa.


Intuitive user interface

Simplify your security operations with Aware’s intuitive user interface. Stay focused and efficient with tools, interfaces, and processes that understand your contexts and needs. We improve and refine our user interface constantly to make it easy for you to unlock the power of Aware.
