The Integration of Security And IoT

Verdafero offers an IoT and Utilities monitoring service (image)

The Integration of Security And IoT | #Verdafero #Security #IoT #Monitoring |  Security has many faces, whether it’s the hardened, Grade 1 locks on all the perimeter man doors throughout a building, electronic access control, video surveillance cameras, fire detection equipment, or the IoT devices that monitors a variety of critical services, such as  temperature, humidity, air flow, pressure, or the integrity and quality of any one of several utilities that clients depend on.

If there was ever a time when integration between the various facets of security, life safety, and general commercial Internet of Things (IoT) might occur, it’s now.

Monitoring Electric Utility usage is one of many applications for Verdafero's Cloud-based, AI-driven service (image)The Central Monitoring Station (CMS) that Security Integrators and Alarm Dealers use is equipped to monitor the physical security elements of a facility, but not necessarily IoT devices that output analog data. Not only that, but traditional CMS’ are not readily capable of analyzing multiple streams of Big Data (BD) for anomalies that might occur. But there is a solution to this problem that is capable of including the positive attributes of a CMS.

In the area of Utility BD, “Verdafero’s Utility and IoT monitoring and analytics platform uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to capture, analyze, report and predict variable, broad-based utility expense information found from many data sources,” says Alastair Hood, Ph.D. and CEO of Verdafero.

Verdafero’s Cloud-based processing center will utilize  your favorite CMS’ API (Application Programming Interface), thus allowing your CMS to act on alerts issued by the AI platform.

According to Hood, “Using Verdafero, security service providers can now actively analyze and compare the performance of similar client properties and benchmark them  against other properties within their portfolio to help clients better  understand the opportunities to reduce overhead expenses.”

An Outdoor Video Surveillance System that Thinks and Acts Like a Human

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.

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.
