Security and Safety Things

Snap Network Surveillance, PTY LTD (‘Snap Surveillance’), the developer of the world’s first and only AI-based intelligent tracking software for large-scale security camera networks, will be participating as an ecosystem development partner in the SAST booth #10037 at the upcoming GSX expo in Chicago, September 10-12, 2019.

SAST (Security and Safety Things) is a Bosch-owned IoT startup, leading an open Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem initiative. This includes creation of an open OS platform for Smart Cameras and an App store for software on the platform, with a focus on delivering enhanced security and safety.

AI-based security apps

The need to track people and objects from camera to camera is becoming critical"

Through their revolutionary open IoT platform for security cameras, SAST enables seamless management of networked cameras — by unleashing a new generation of AI-based security apps. Snap is excited to be one of the initial development partners.

Snap Surveillance’s support of the SAST ecosystem provides an ideal platform for video pursuit of people and objects moving about environments such as airports or large retail establishments,” stated Henry Detmold, CTO, Snap Surveillance. “In today’s larger camera-count environments, the need to track people and objects from camera to camera is becoming critical and with SAST support for learning on their cameras, our mutual customers will be able to get the benefits without needing a big investment is server capacity.”

Intelligent tracking solution

Snap Surveillance’s AI-enabled intelligent tracking solution will be on display at the SAST GSX booth - showcasing our solution that is 10x faster than human-alone subject tracking while also removing operator fallibility.

This solution is essential for improving the speed of operating a security camera network

This solution is essential for improving the speed, performance, and accuracy of operating a security camera network. An overarching benefit of deploying Snap Surveillance’s Force Multiplier (FMx) software in a SAST ecosystem is that image analysis running on the camera can be more efficient and accurate than on a server, which results in faster and more accurate learning of the camera relationships.

Camera-count environments

Further benefits are anticipated as the SAST ecosystem grows, with other development partners able to utilise the camera networking information from Snap’s machine learning algorithms.

Snap Surveillance will also be exhibiting in its own booth in the GSX Disruption District, #3417. As a Gold Partner with Milestone Systems, Snap Surveillance will be demonstrating its patented AI-based system for learning camera relationships, and showcase how easy it is to track suspects or objects around large camera-count environments, removing the stress of knowing which camera feed will be needed next.

Are cloud-based systems more or less secure than on-premise systems?

For most security end users, keeping all their data on the premises “feels” more secure. But in the age of Internet connectivity, that feeling of safety is mostly an illusion. In any case, increasingly, video and other security systems are migrating to the cloud. So are most other business IT systems for that matter. However, when “security” is in your job title, it becomes that much more important to ensure that data is reliably protected. We asked this week’s Expe...

As baby boomers retire, what is the impact on physical security?

For several decades, Baby Boomers represented the largest sector of employees in the physical security market. However, these security professionals born between 1946 and 1964 are now nearing retirement – or have already retired. How will the security market change as the next generations step up to make their contributions? We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: As Baby Boomers approach retirement age, what are the positives and negatives in the physical security market?

How have security solutions failed our schools?

School shootings are a high-profile reminder of the need for the highest levels of security at our schools and education facilities. Increasingly, a remedy to boost the security at schools is to use more technology. However, no technology is a panacea, and ongoing violence and other threats at our schools suggest some level of failure. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How have security solutions failed our schools and what is the solution?
