Okay, let’s start with an experiment. Take a look at the grid of images below, can you find which screen contains a security incident? Take your time, I’ll wait.
Find anything? Okay, I’ll to make it a bit easier. Let’s start with a single image, and see if you can tell what's going on.
How did it go? Feeling like a security expert? Could you do this for 8 hours a day? I hope you’re starting to catch my drift, staring at a grid of video feeds all day long is about as tedious as it gets. The scary part is this is reality! This is how most businesses secure their physical properties, if they even have the funds to pay someone to do it (which, by the way, most don’t). Can you imagine how many incidents get missed every year, simply due to human error. Humans weren’t built for this type of work. We get distracted, we lose interest, we make mistakes. We are, as they say, only human. Do you know what was built for this type of work? Computers!
Computers were born out of the idea of solving complicated, boring, repetitive tasks that could be done in a fraction of the time typically required. They are very good at doing a lot of things very quickly, like analyzing every frame in a video clip in search of information. They don’t get tired, they don’t get bored, and they don’t make mistakes.
What are computers not good at? Context for one. They have a hard time telling if two people are engaged in a friendly handshake, or if one of those people is stabbing the other. So until computer vision technology gets there (which it will, I promise you that), combining AI with human cognitive skills yields the best results. That means using AI to identify potential issues, and allowing a human to quickly make a contextual decision.
At Rhombus Systems, we’ve designed our security systems to incorporate AI from the start. We’re not a legacy vendor trying to pass some basic processing happening on a local server as AI. We’re a cloud company, running state of the art Machine Learning, Computer Vision, and Big Data systems that empower us to build next-generation technology. Like a Tesla, Rhombus Systems makes your cameras smarter week after week. Some of the exciting AI that we’ll be delivering over the next year:
If you’re tired of paying for expensive systems with lackluster functionality that require you to hire someone to sit in front of a monitor and tell you when things go bad, give Rhombus Systems a try. Our goal is to make your video security system autonomous, working for you and making your life easier. An asset, not a liability. And the best part is, you can try it for free. Put them somewhere that your current system doesn’t cover, or more likely, somewhere your current cameras are broken. We think you’ll love the difference, and the system.
Rhombus Mask Detection is an efficient way to help organizations reopen safely and maintain safe environments at scale. With intelligent security cameras, a highly optimized AI neural network, and computing on the edge, Rhombus Mask Detection will automatically identify if individuals are wearing face coverings and issue real-time video alerts when they are not detected.
When we talk to anyone with a European presence, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is often one of their first questions. At Rhombus Systems, we have put all of the controls and safeguards in place to ensure that your company can use security cameras with confidence. Given our experiences helping customers with GDPR, we want to share what we’ve learned as part of this process.
