Video Analytics is a term referring to technology that analyzes video for specific data, behaviors or objects which then alerts the appropriate individuals when an incident or event is detected. For example, video analytics can count the number of people entering a specific door or determine the speed and direction of cars traveling down a specific road and even identify suspicious people or objects, some systems can even detect audio alerts like sirens, gunshots or screams.
Event-driven software is proactive and presents a cost effective and incredibly useful tool that can easily be integrated into an existing surveillance installation. Images are constantly monitored from video cameras through the use of dedicated analytics software in real-time which provides improved operational effectiveness and much higher situational awareness. Who doesn’t want to save labor, time and money by implementing better equipment and software into their existing surveillance system?
The software paired with the proper equipment can efficiently detect intruders, provide video verification, minimize costly false alarms, ensure faster response time, reduce bandwidth consumption and they can be remotely configured and maintained. Video analytic software also helps to reduce information overload, filters out irrelevant activities and alleviates monitoring tasks which enables more effective surveillance, better detection, fewer false alarms and allows for instant visual verification. Just remember one thing, video analytics can’t replace real people – someone still needs to keep an eye on things.
