An Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #VideoSurveillance #AI | I’d like to tell you about a new, revolutionary outdoor CCTV product that is like none other. I use the word “revolutionary” because it is just that. It leverages the use of quality Megapixel/HD quality, pan-tilt-zoom cameras with machine learning and an entirely newly developed series of audio, thermal, and radar-oriented sensors. Add to that an AI (Artificial Intelligence)-based learning control platform and you have an almost human-like control system with Big Data analysis. http://bit.ly/2KKKhEc
The focus of this new tech is outdoor protection. It uses thermal, sound, and radar to focus in on moving targets, along with a Smartphone app that stakeholders can use to alert the system when there’s a potential problem of an immediate nature. Cameras automatically follow targets, which is not entirely new, but that’s just the beginning of the story.
The uniquely developed sensors allow the system to hear, see, and detect what the camera cannot see using a variety of unique sensors that truly makes this system revolutionary. Interaction between this interactive, integrated video surveillance system and stakeholders is audio/visual in nature, further deterring would-be assailants.
Currently the system operates using a unique machine learning system, but an AI (Artificial Intelligence) processing system is now in the works and will soon be incorporated, giving the system the ability to react with even more speed and intelligence. Through Big Data analysis, over time the system will learn the habits and trends associated with each camera within each specific setting, thus enabling the system to quickly identify departures from the norm. There’s more.
I’d like to propose a complementary story on the tech with a short interview with the developer, who happens to be John Collings, the former inventor and developer of Uplink. A sidebar will delve into the advancements in AI and how they will be leveraged to make this new technology a must-have for office complexes, shopping malls, multiple-tenant housing, industrial complexes, chain stores, etc.
Sales of connected consumer devices to exceed 520 million units by 2022 | #TpromoCom #IoT #HomeAutomation #SmartHome | New whitepaper sponsored by Calix details opportunities for service providers to build revenues and brand value in the smart home ecosystem.

New whitepaper sponsored by Calix details opportunities for service providers to build revenues and brand value in the smart home ecosystem
Parks Associates today released the new whitepaper Open for Business: Future Flexibility for Smart Home Services, which forecasts sales of connected consumer devices will exceed 520 million units by 2022, including networked cameras, security systems, and connected health devices. The whitepaper, sponsored by Calix, presents the opportunities emerging from this wealth of residential devices and details strategies for service providers to operate in the smart home market in ways that leverage their strengths while avoiding the pitfalls of past efforts.
“A future-flexible platform is a critical component for success in the IoT because smart strategies represent a long-term investment,” said Brad Russell, Research Director, Connected Home, Parks Associates. “While service providers are in an excellent position to deploy, maintain, and service the smart home, they generally do not want to develop and maintain their own proprietary solution to do so. But the market has matured where vendors are offering new turnkey solutions, and the right long-term partnership enables providers to serve the varied present and future use cases.”
“Service providers need to re-position themselves for growth and gain a foothold in the smart home. The innovators are starting with tools that provide visibility into the home and supporting systems so they can deliver best-in-class whole-home Wi-Fi coverage,” said Michael Weening, EVP of field operations for Calix. “Once the foundational brands and systems are in place-such as those rapidly coming to market from tech giants-it will become increasingly difficult for new entrants to gain any traction. The opportunity is now.”
The whitepaper details consumer interest and willingness to pay for connected home services. Additional research from Open for Business: Future Flexibility for Smart Home Services:
• More than half of professionally monitored subscribers have at least basic interactivity with their security system.
• At the end of 2018, 24% of US broadband households subscribed to professional monitoring.
• 10% of US broadband households own at least one networked camera.
• The majority of consumers 50+ years old are willing to pay $30 per month for an independent living system that has their must-have features, such as fire detection, panic buttons, automatic alerts sent to loved ones, and home security devices to deter intruders.

Parks Associates welcomes Sarah Jones, VP of Commercial Product, Great Call, to Connected Health Summit | #TpromoCom #Event #Home #Monitor | Jones will deliver the keynote address at the sixth-annual Connected Health Summit: Independent Living and Wellness.
64% of consumer 50 and older are interested in home monitoring system that can sense emergencies and notify caretakers
Parks Associates today announced Sarah Jones, VP of Commercial Product, Great Call, as the first confirmed keynote speaker for the sixth-annual Connected Health Summit: Independent Living and Wellness, August 27-29 at the Pendry San Diego in San Diego, California. The firm’s independent living research finds 64% of heads of US broadband households 50 and older are interested in a home system that can sense emergencies and send out notifications.
Connected Health Summit will explore new strategies and innovations that will expand and improve independent living solutions for consumers and caretakers, including innovative monitoring and smart home solutions, and examine consumer adoption and usage of connected health technologies and key adjacencies between smart home, healthcare, and independent living ecosystems. Early Sponsors include HP, MDLIVE, Alarm.com, Freeus, Rapid Response Monitoring, and GiftCard Partners.
“The push to engage consumers outside of the facility, combined with advances in consumer technology, have created several distinct markets for connected health products and services,” said Elizabeth Parks, President, Parks Associates. “We expect to see the lines between these markets blur as care providers experiment with consumer devices as part of their remote patient monitoring programs and as consumer solutions integrate virtual care services into their offerings. Technology companies are now realizing the incredible opportunity to serve the growing market of seniors with devices and services that fit their unique needs and desires.”
Parks Associates research shows more than one-third of people in US broadband households are current caregivers or will be in the near future, and they rank emergency alerts as the most valuable home living feature.
“Many smart home solutions are well positioned to deliver on these key independent living use cases while also providing a valuable user experience to caretakers,” Parks said. “Great Call, recently acquired by Best Buy, is a leader in delivering independent living solutions, and we look forward to sharing insight with attendees on key adjacencies between the smart home and connected health.”
