IDIS will be highlighting the latest advances in deep learning video analytics, with accuracy, at ISC West 2020. Building on its track record of artificial intelligence innovation, IDIS has taken another step forward in neural networks developing what is now one of most accurate AI engines available.

Users can easily access a range of advanced AI tools through the latest version of IDIS Deep Learning Analytics (IDLA) technology, either as a service module with the IDIS Solution Suite VMS or via the cost-effective AI in the Box appliance for smaller applications.

Korea’s largest video tech manufacturer will be demonstrating the latest AI-driven metadata filtering capabilities, designed to make incident investigation faster and more effective.

Incident management

This guides first responders to take the most appropriate action and reduces the chance of incidents being missed

IDLA makes control room operations more efficient by dramatically reducing false positive alarms and in turn supporting proactive decision making and prompting faster officer intervention during security and life safety events. It can accurately recognise incidents such as intrusion, loitering, and trespassing, all in real-time, and trigger notifications. In practice, this guides first responders to take the most appropriate action and reduces the chance of incidents being missed.

IDIS Instant Meta Filtering (IMF) now allows users to exploit the power of metadata to speed up incident investigations. Operators can do this not just through IDLA but also through the totally cost free IDIS Centre VMS via the deployment of new IDIS 6000 Series Edge VA (EVA) cameras. IDLA or EVA cameras record metadata even when an analytic rule is not applied.

Person Match tool

This allows operators to easily collate footage, with IDIS IMF scanning hours of recorded video from multiple streams, to identify relevant data. This makes it easy to search footage to track a person or vehicle, cutting through large volumes of video data to reveal the movements and last-known locations of persons or vehicles of interest.

For example, using the Person Match tool the operator simply highlights the video image of a suspected perpetrator and within seconds IMF provides thumbnails of the person it identifies as being the suspect. The operator can then simply click the thumbnails to view the relevant video clips.

Reduce investigation time

IDIS will be showcasing its line-up of analytics appliances and specialty cameras

IDLA combined with IMF promises to deliver significant labour efficiencies and reduce investigations from days or hours to just minutes. For busy security departments, this means less time spent staring at screens and more time engaged with more important and rewarding duties.

IDIS will also be focusing its solutions on important vertical markets. For systems integrators there are now major opportunities to help retailers grow combined online/in-store customer experiences and operational efficiency.

DC-C4212RX 2MP micro dome camera

To serve this fast moving sector, IDIS will be showcasing its line-up of analytics appliances and specialty cameras which now includes new 12MP Panomorph and 5MP Compact Super Fisheyes, giving complete situational awareness of stores and logistics centres. In addition, the new, compact DC-C4212RX 2MP micro dome camera blends discretely with the aesthetics of high-end locations such as jewellery stores and designer boutiques.

IDIS will also demonstrate the new reporting capabilities within its popular retail plug-and-play, VA in the Box analytics appliance. These make it easy for store managers to compile and access business intelligence reports across branches, all through the convenience of a web browser.

IDIS Solution Suite

IDIS Solution Suite is proving particularly popular as a scalable and affordable VMS

In the education sector, IDIS has a growing track record of systems installed at schools and colleges where it is helping to create safer, more positive learning environments. IDIS Solution Suite is proving particularly popular as a scalable, affordable VMS that works with a wide range of robust NVRs and cameras suitable for varied lighting conditions and locations all backed by the IDIS Ultimate Warranty.

These offer the advantage of ease-of-use for teachers and administrators, with essential privacy functions and affordable, wide area coverage. “This year at ISC West we’re really making it easy for systems integrators and customers to take advantage of advanced deep learning AI with some practical tools,” says Keith Drummond, Senior Sales Director for IDIS America.

Importance of cybersecurity

And he adds that IDIS will be reminding everyone about the continued importance of cybersecurity. “Protecting against network attacks through cameras and video infrastructure is no longer just a ‘nice to have’, it’s a ‘must have’. The threats to organisations are too great to ignore, and the consequences of failure are too damaging.”

IDIS has been at the forefront in protecting customers with multi-layered cyber-defences, securing data access, transmission, and recording, designing more robust protocols and issuing timely firmware updates.

What are the security challenges of protecting SMBs?
What are the security challenges of protecting SMBs?

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) make huge contributions to the economy overall. Considered individually, they may not be as large as companies in the enterprise market, but they have big requirements when it comes to security. SMBs also present unique challenges to security manufacturers and integrators seeking to serve their needs. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the security challenges of protecting small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs)?

Expert roundup: healthy buildings, blockchain, AI, skilled workers, and more

Our Expert Panel Roundtable is an opinionated group. However, for a variety of reasons, we are sometimes guilty of not publishing their musings in a timely manner. At the end of 2020, we came across several interesting comments among those that were previously unpublished. Following is a catch-all collection of those responses, addressing some of the most current and important issues in the security marketplace in 2021.

Smart Offices: How is mobile ID changing the way we access the office?
Smart Offices: How is mobile ID changing the way we access the office?

If you’re a security or facilities manager, you may already be aware of the quiet revolution that’s taking place across businesses and organisations up and down the country. By the end of 2020, 20% of all ID and access control systems featured mobile capability, and this is set to increase by a further 34% over the next three years. There’s no doubt that using a smartphone or mobile device in place of traditional credential and access control is a growing trend that’s only been sped up by the pandemic. It’s true that many businesses are still very much focused on remote working, although many are now starting to implement new-and-improved strategies that are better suited to protect the workforce moving forward. Mobile ID systems As the next normal becomes clearer, businesses will be reviewing procedures such as access control, occupancy monitoring, reducing touch points and tracking visitors. Mobile ID systems are ideally suited to this task. But what are the key reasons for considering such a setup in 2021? But why is this new technology so well-suited to future-proof your physical access system, and why is it becoming so popular? Eradicating outdated legacy credentials Have you seen just how vulnerable outdated Proximity card technology can be? Low-frequency 125kHz cards can be cloned in a matter of seconds with the use of cheap, readily available tools. Despite their weaknesses, they are still used by a huge majority of businesses – big and small. All smartphones include two industry-standard features that make them perfect for operating a secure, contactless credential Replacing such a system with a mobile-enabled system is one of the best ways to increase security ten-fold. Thanks to a cloud-based infrastructure, mobile ID offers best-in-class security and cryptography. All smartphones include two industry-standard features that make them perfect for operating a secure, contactless credential. Bluetooth Smart and NFC (Near Field Communication) make them the best product to operate such a credential via a secure app. If you’re looking for best-in-class security in 2021, mobile access is most definitely the way forward. Removing touch points across the business Reducing touch points and the adoption of touchless facilities has become a key priority for businesses in the wake of COVID-19. Even as businesses start to return to the office and operate a home/office split, it will be imperative that unnecessary contact is kept to an absolute minimum between staff. The traditional issuance of identification and access control credentials can pose problems in this regard. Facility and security managers who are responsible for onboarding and processing ID have done the process face to face. Mobile access makes it possible to carry this process out without people coming into direct content. First, the security manager has access to a secure portal, allowing them to create, manage and edit credentials anywhere. They can upload and remotely transfer mobile ID and access control credentials directly to users’ smartphones over the air. Via the secure app, users can view and see their credentials and immediately begin using it for ID and access control by simply placing their smartphone over card readers. Enabling a more flexible way of working The way in which we work has changed for good. Even as people more people return to the office in 2021, a majority of businesses will be operating a home/office split indefinitely. This once again reinforces the need for a smarter, more adaptable onboarding system. Implementing mobile ID is the perfect way of doing this: over-the-air delivery of credentials and security data is now a given, helping businesses create the perfect balance between the home and the office. No longer do people have to come into the office for the onboarding process. Increasing convenience and user experience More often businesses are realising the value mobile ID can have for enhancing the work experience as well as security Ok, so mobile ID is the perfect way of increasing security and adapting workplaces to a post-COVID way of working. And we’ve not even touched on the most obvious advantage yet: Convenience. How many times have you forgotten your ID card? We’re sure it’s more times than you forget your smartphone. These powerful processors have become intertwined with the way we carry out tasks on a daily basis. They’re so vital that people will soon notice if they’ve forgotten it. From an employee’s perspective, mobile ID and access control is simple, convenient and extremely user-friendly. More and more businesses are realising the value mobile ID can have for enhancing the work experience as well as security. From the employer’s perspective, mobile ID means it’s easier for administrators to manage access and credentials. Future-proofing access control now will ensure that in the longer term, mobile ID is well worth the investment. The annual expenditure of printing ID cards and purchasing credentials can be vast, while reissuance costs can also quickly add up for larger organisations. These issues are a thing of the past for businesses using mobile ID. Mobile ID perfect tool for 2021 and beyond Until mobile ID, new and improved credentials’ main focus was on increasing security. Mobile ID not only delivers that, but it also provides a more convenient way of accessing the office in a way that’s perfectly suited to returning to the office in 2021. If there was ever a time to upgrade, now is the time. Summing up, mobile access is changing the way we access the office by: Eliminating weak links in security systems such as outdated legacy card technologies Eradicating the need for touch points across multiple areas of the workplace Enabling a smarter, more flexible approach to onboarding Increasing convenience – for both employers and employees.
