How thermal cameras boost your surveillance solution

    Thermal cameras can be used for various applications where accurate detection is crucial. From perimeter protection and detecting changes to ambient temperatures to patient monitoring to ensuring equipment is operating safely and many more. Thermal cameras are continuing to grow in popularity due to their ability to detect potential threats and reduce false alarms – […]

      Future-proofing video surveillance investments with edge analytics

      You’ve probably heard of ‘edge analytics’ (or ‘analytics on the edge’) in relation to video surveillance. Put in its simplest form, it relates to increasingly powerful video analytics taking place on the ‘edge’ of the network, i.e. in the camera itself. My colleague Andres Vigren’s recent post provides a great introduction. As with any new […]

Sure, it can be annoying hearing the constant thrum of traffic or music from a club in the early hours, but second most dangerous? Unfortunately, it is very much the case. […]

              Artificial intelligence on the edge: the opportunities for video surveillance

              In the world of video surveillance, one of the primary benefits of edge computing will be the ability to undertake advanced analytics using artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning within cameras themselves. Firstly, what do we mean by “on the edge”? The number of devices on the edge of our security networks is growing and […]
