Video Analytics: Residential and Business Solutions made simple!

Do you want to know when important events happen, while ignoring routine movement around your house or business?  Then video analytics is for you!  Video analytics is a highly intelligent security feature that has the capability of distinguishing between people, vehicles and animals, as well as determine the direction of movement and the duration of activity, thereby alerting you when something beyond the norm is happening.  Combined with new virtual tripwires and activity zones, you can customize and control your video surveillance notifications!

Once a person, vehicle or animal is detected, you receive an enhanced alert with an image showing what was caught on camera. You only receive video alerts on what matters most to YOU. For example, when:

  • Vehicle Awareness: Know when a vehicle stops outside your home or business during the daytime. If a vehicle leaves unexpectedly overnight, ie from your business parking lot or from your home. Know when a car actually pulls into your driveway at night, not when it drives past your home.
  • Loitering: Get a video alert if someone lingers by your front or back door, but not when the mail is delivered.
  • Animals: Know when your neighbor’s dog has been visiting your lawn, Deer are eating your lilies or fox are roaming your property at night. Know immediately if your own pet is napping on the couch, but not when he is walking around the room.
  • Criminal Deterrence: When a potential criminal is casing your home at night and you’re either asleep or away, have your system automatically turn an INTERIOR light on instead of an exterior flood light, which most perpetrators would expect. Watch how fast they run from your property by fooling them into believing you are home and awake, even if you are not.

Take control of the security in your home or business with the latest technology.

Apartment Community Receives Video Analytics Security Upgrade

HS Tech Group was contacted in late 2013 by a property management company searching for a security solution for one of their existing apartment communities. The Anne Arundel County property was upscale and hosted a variety of luxurious amenities.  While the property currently employed security guards and some security cameras, both were unable to deter or prevent the theft that was occurring.

After visiting the property and conducting a thorough site analysis, HS Tech Group learned that automobiles were being vandalized and people were gaining access to restricted areas within the clubhouse.  With the information we obtained, HS Tech Group was able to determine the type of system that could potentially eliminate or greatly reduce these occurrences.

HS Tech Group introduced a video surveillance system that employs video analytics.  The software allows us to create rules for the cameras, such as when an individual approaches a door or a vehicle enters the property.  This type of system can detect when movement occurs within the perimeter and transmit the live video instantly to the security guard and property manager.

This cutting edge technology allows us to design and engineer systems that are unique to each project.  Schedules can be configured; offsite monitoring can alert authorities and even communicate with the trespassers through a speaker.  This type of system often leads to fewer cameras and can reduce or even eliminate the need for a security guard.  Since the deployment of this system, there has not been another undetected or unresolved incident on the property.
