Video surveillance has evolved from a simple requirement for clear images to video content analysis (VCA) for improved management. Now, with deep learning, security solutions are enabled with sophisticated intelligence and efficiency at a whole new level.
Hikvision AcuSense software
Hikvision AcuSense makes advanced VCA and deep learning capabilities available to SMBs
Hikvision AcuSense is newly born out of this, which makes advanced VCA and deep learning capabilities available to small and medium businesses, and residential customers for the first time.
Small and medium businesses have many of the same surveillance and security requirements as larger organisations. They need to identify and react to perimeter breaches in real time, and to automate footage searches to fast locate true events. Another example could be the security and protection for residential areas.
When the need to look into the security of a property arises, the first line of defence would be securing its perimeter. The idea is to prevent intruders from breaking in. However, conventional surveillance system may not do the job well enough.
Conventional surveillance systems provide certain detection features enabled by video content analysis (VCA), such as motion detection, line-crossing detection and intrusion detection, but, would simply compound all event detections, triggering frequent alarms when an object is detected. This could be an animal, a shadow, or other natural movements – we call them false alarms. As a result, the need to spend time to investigate each one is very consuming, potentially delaying any necessary response and generally affecting efficiency.
Video content analysis
So being able to identify the real threats – the presence of a human or a vehicle – would greatly improve the accuracy of perimeter VCA functions. Hikvision’s hassle-free AcuSense technology can help achieve this goal, and give a cost-effective way to protect locations and assets.
Employed with advanced VCA and deep learning algorithms, Hikvision AcuSense helps maximise security with efficient human and vehicle detection by categorising alarm information into human, vehicle, and other objects. With high accuracy, the system disregards alarms triggered by other objects such as rain or leaves, and delivers alarms that are associated with human or vehicle detection.
Quick target search and detection
Hikvision AcuSense has a “quick target search” feature that allows security personnel to find footage quickly Hikvision AcuSense has a “quick target search” feature that allows security personnel or local police to find footage quickly in the event of a security incident. This saves many hours rather than searching for footage manually.
Now, re-imagine perimeter security systems armed with Hikvision AcuSense technology. Video surveillance is in operation when an intruder tries to sneak in on a windy and rainy day. The intruder probably thought such bad weather would do him a favor, as there are no witnesses near your house. But this is not the case.
Effective intrusion detection
The security camera incorporated with AcuSense precisely captures the intruder entering the front yard. At the same time, the home owner receives a message on their smartphone and view the video feeds. With this verified alarm, action can be taken straight away. Hikvision AcuSense prevents problems before they escalate into would-be emergencies.
The fully-integrated video surveillance makes it easy for owners to see and capture important activity with video alerts, live feeds and 24/7 digital video recording – all easily viewed from your Hik-Connect app.
Hikvision AcuSense key features:
- False alarm reduction – Reduces false alarms triggered by inanimate objects to a minimum, vastly improves alarm efficiency and saving costs;
- Quick target search – More efficient and effective file searching based on human and vehicle classification, preventing security personnel from having to search through footage manually;
- Strobe light and audio alarm – Wards off potential intruders by combining siren with flashing light.
