Dahua Technology, globally renowned video-centric smart IoT solutions and service provider, has launched IVSS 2.0 (IVSS7000-I), an upgraded series of its NVR family powered by the latest AI capable of deep learning, which opens up new possibilities to smart security solutions.

Upgraded IVSS 7000-I

The upgraded IVSS 7000-I features scalable GPU design to meet the ever-growing project requirements. The unique Dahua Deep-Learning algorithm with GPU group enables IVSS7000-I to perform face recognition, perimeter protection and metadata with high accuracy. Offering advanced Artificial Intelligence features, it even enables danger prevention via faster video content inquiry, rapid discovery of targets as well as real-time and accurate alarm in a variety of applications, providing AI-based all-in-one surveillance solution for customers.

Some major features of IVSS7000-I are detailed below.

AI-powered facial recognition technology

Dahua Technology’s AI-powered face recognition technology enjoys a high reputation in the industry

Dahua Technology’s AI-powered face recognition technology enjoys a high reputation in the industry, as testified by multiple first prizes in international competitions. Equipped with Dahua face recognition technology, IVSS7000-I series records face by structured data and performs real-time crosscheck with reliable accuracy to figure out the face by features of the target.

Supporting up to 256-channel face recognition by device and up to 256-channel face recognition by camera, IVSS7000-I can analyse up to 50 different face databases with 300,000 face pictures in total. Besides, the upgraded IVSS7000-I also supports search by face image which means users can upload face pictures to IVSS7000-I and compare them with recorded ones by similarity.

VIP recognition and access control

IVSS7000-I series can realise a lot of functions for users such as VIP recognition, blacklist alarm, stranger identification, attendance management, access control, etc. It divides faces detected into different categories defined by users, and acts accordingly, like notifying the manager that a VIP customer is coming or sending an alert when a persona non grata is identified. Users can choose Regular/Stranger mode to trigger kinds of alarm actions according to different applications.

Focusing on people and vehicles, perimeter protection automatically filters out false alarms caused by animals, rustling leaves, bright lights, camera shaking and other irrelevant elements. It also enables system to act secondary recognition for the targets, thus significantly improving alarm accuracy with saved cost. In terms of perimeter protection, IVSS7000-I supports up to 256-channel with each channel allowing up to 10 IVS rules.

Enhanced metadata

Metadata is feature attribute information of a target object which can be used for data retrieval. Currently, there are mainly four types of metadata that are human face, human body, motor vehicle and non-motor vehicle. IVSS7000-I supports up to 64-channel video metadata, making it possible for operators to quickly and easily search through multiple channels and long duration to find out when and where a person/vehicle of interest appeared, which significantly enhances accuracy and efficiency.

The IVSS7000-I employs optimised GUI which is easier for users to learn and use. With the same GUI working for local output and PC client, training cost of system operator is reduced. Comparable to VMS client, the new GUI design is more user-friendly for project-level customers.

Remote access

IVSS-I can meet variable needs of users, thus applicable to a wide range of scenes

Apart from the above features, IVSS7000-I also allows independent PC client for remote access so that users will not be bothered by things like Web plug-ins and browser update. It's also worth mentioning that with a new security center to keep hackers away, IVSS7000-I series provides a safer network environment for users.

Being multifunctional, IVSS-I can meet variable needs of users, thus applicable to a wide range of scenes, including entrances and exits of banks, business parks, schools, prisons and transportation centers like airports, railway stations that are sensitive to strangers and criminals; or the shopping malls that want to protect customers from petty thieves; or football stadiums that choose to ban those known hooligans for good.

Intelligence and safety

As a key back-end product to smart security system, IVSS7000-I brings intelligence, safety, and reliability to a new level. With a mission of Enabling a Safer Society and Smarter Living, Dahua Technology will continue to focus on “Innovation, Quality, and Service” to serve partners and customers around the world.

Managing security during unprecedented times of home working
Managing security during unprecedented times of home working

Companies are following government guidance and getting as many people as possible working from home. Some companies will have resisted home working in the past, but I’m certain that the sceptics will find that people can be productive with the right tools no matter where they are. A temporary solution will become permanent. But getting it right means managing risk. Access is king In a typical office with an on-premise data centre, the IT department has complete control over network access, internal networks, data, and applications. The remote worker, on the other hand, is mobile. He or she can work from anywhere using a VPN. Until just recently this will have been from somewhere like a local coffee shop, possibly using a wireless network to access the company network and essential applications. CV-19 means that huge numbers of people are getting access to the same desktop and files, and collaborative communication toolsBut as we know, CV-19 means that huge numbers of people are getting access to the same desktop and files, applications and collaborative communication tools that they do on a regular basis from the office or on the train. Indeed, the new generation of video conferencing technologies come very close to providing an “almost there” feeling. Hackers lie in wait Hackers are waiting for a wrong move amongst the panic, and they will look for ways to compromise critical servers. Less than a month ago, we emerged from a period of chaos. For months hackers had been exploiting a vulnerability in VPN products from Pulse Secure, Fortinet, Palo Alto Networks, and Citrix. Patches were provided by vendors, and either companies applied the patch or withdrew remote access. As a result, the problem of attacks died back.  But as companies race to get people working from home, they must ensure special care is taken to ensure the patches are done before switching VPNs on. That’s because remote desktop protocol (RDP) has been for the most part of 2019, and continues to be, the most important attack vector for ransomware. Managing a ransomware attack on top of everything else would certainly give you sleepless nights. As companies race to get people working from home, they must ensure special care is taken to ensure the patches are done before switching VPNs on Hackers are waiting for a wrong move amongst the panic, and they will look for ways to compromise critical serversExposing new services makes them also susceptible to denial of service attacks. Such attacks create large volumes of fake traffic to saturate the available capacity of the internet connection. They can also be used to attack the intricacies of the VPN protocol. A flow as little as 1Mbps can perturbate the VPN service and knock it offline. CIOs, therefore, need to acknowledge that introducing or extending home working broadens the attack surface. So now more than ever it’s vital to adapt risk models. You can’t roll out new services with an emphasis on access and usability and not consider security. You simply won’t survive otherwise. Social engineering Aside from securing VPNs, what else should CIO and CTOs be doing to ensure security? The first thing to do is to look at employee behaviour, starting with passwords. It’s highly recommended that strong password hygiene or some form of multi-factor authentication (MFA) is imposed. Best practice would be to get all employees to reset their passwords as they connect remotely and force them to choose a new password that complies with strong password complexity guidelines.  As we know, people have a habit of reusing their passwords for one or more online services – services that might have fallen victim to a breach. Hackers will happily It’s highly recommended that strong password hygiene or some form of multi-factor authentication (MFA) is imposedleverage these breaches because it is such easy and rich pickings. Secondly, the inherent fear of the virus makes for perfect conditions for hackers. Sadly, a lot of phishing campaigns are already luring people in with the promise of important or breaking information on COVID-19. In the UK alone, coronavirus scams cost victims over £800,000 in February 2020. A staggering number that can only go up. That’s why CIOs need to remind everyone in the company of the risks of clickbait and comment spamming - the most popular and obvious bot techniques for infiltrating a network. Notorious hacking attempts And as any security specialist will tell you, some people have no ethics and will exploit the horrendous repercussions of CV-19. In January we saw just how unscrupulous hackers are when they started leveraging public fear of the virus to spread the notorious Emotet malware. Emotet, first detected in 2014, is a banking trojan that primarily spreads through ‘malspam’ and attempts to sneak into computers to steal sensitive and private information. In addition, in early February the Maze ransomware crippled more than 230 workstations of the New Jersey Medical Diagnostics Lab and when they refused to pay, the vicious attackers leaked 9.5GB or research data in an attempt to force negotiations. And in March, an elite hacking group tried to breach the World Health Organization (WHO). It was just one of the many attempts on WHO and healthcare organisations in general since the pandemic broke. We’ll see lots more opportunist attacks like this in the coming months.   More speed less haste In March, an elite hacking group tried to breach the World Health Organization (WHO). It was just one of the many attempts on WHOFinally, we also have bots to contend with. We’ve yet to see reports of fake news content generated by machines, but we know there’s a high probability it will happen. Spambots are already creating pharmaceutical spam campaigns thriving on the buying behaviour of people in times of fear from infection. Using comment spamming – where comments are tactically placed in the comments following an update or news story - the bots take advantage of the popularity of the Google search term ‘Coronavirus’ to increase the visibility and ranking of sites and products in search results. There is clearly much for CIOs to think about, but it is possible to secure a network by applying some well thought through tactics. I believe it comes down to having a ‘more speed, less haste’ approach to rolling out, scaling up and integrating technologies for home working, but above all, it should be mixed with an employee education programme. As in reality, great technology and a coherent security strategy will never work if it is undermined by the poor practices of employees.

How does audio enhance security system performance?
How does audio enhance security system performance?

Video is widely embraced as an essential element of physical security systems. However, surveillance footage is often recorded without sound, even though many cameras are capable of capturing audio as well as video. Beyond the capabilities of cameras, there is a range of other audio products on the market that can improve system performance and/or expand capabilities (e.g., gunshot detection.) We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How does audio enhance the performance of security and/or video systems? 

How have standards changed the security market?
How have standards changed the security market?

A standard is a document that establishes uniform engineering or technical criteria, methods, processes, and/or practices. Standards surround every aspect of our business. For example, the physical security marketplace is impacted by industry standards, national and international standards, quality standards, building codes and even environmental standards, to name just a few.
