  • And now for a complete shift of view, really a revolution to the next level of artificial intelligence video analytics. BRS Labs (Behavioral Recognition Systems) has created a non-rule-based analytics. Unlike the traditional type where you must set rules for each camera, this requires no setting of rules. If you think about it you will quickly understand that the rule-based type works very well for unoccupied, restricted areas. It tells you as soon as someone has trespassed there. But what about occupied areas like shopping plazas, university campuses, hospitals, loading docks, work yards? The rule based cannot work in these areas because people belong there all over the place all the time.

  • That would be what we call a rhetorical question, because you can already tell by the fact that it is the title, that the answer will be No. This article explains the differences you need to know to make an intelligent buying decision and get the best solution for your needs.

  • I’ve often heard business owners say, “I don’t really need to improve my security. If something happens, that’s what I got insurance for.”
    True, your insurance company may pay the claim. Or they may not, depending on what type of loss it was and whether you were insured for it. For example, does your general liability insurance cover your failure to adequately protect an employee from an attack which resulted in their death?

  • To really improve your security you have to learn to see what you don’t see. By this I don’t just mean “blind spots” or places where your cameras are not pointing, or where adding more would solve the problem. That would be way too obvious.

  • This article is intended for criminologists and security directors at hospitals, universities and other large campus-type facilities. This is the first-known quantification of situational awareness and the economic comparison of machine and human intelligence to the task.

  • Security directors of hospitals and universities are viewed by the administration as a source of cost. In reality, security departments adopting new procedures and technonoligies can cut not only crimes but workers comp and liability losses. This will be a greater source of retained profits than anything else the hospital or university can do. 

  • I’ve been involved in safety & security for over thirty years and have advised to military, prisons, institutions, industry & insurance companies and have done expert witness work in three states. This is truly the most remarkable advance I’ve ever seen.

  • The object of desire in security is that thing which can cause you harm. Surveillance systems that detect dogs on your lot or trees swaying in the wind cause hundreds or even thousands of false alarms per day. If we had a system that could detect people and vehicles doing things you don't want them to do, bad things, and alert you or our monitoring people within one minute and they could in real time talk down live to that intruder, would that be of interest to you?

  • Do you know what to do when someone trips or slip and falls at your workplace? There are 9 million slip & fall incidents per year.

  • Sick days are not that bad. The much bigger problem comes from days when employees are at work sick. Resulting lowered productivity and long-term illness leading to workers’ comp, costs employers $4,431 per employee per year.
