AVIGILON is expanding its deep learning artificial intelligence (AI) search engine, Avigilon Appearance Search technology, with two powerful new features that help users save time and effort during critical investigations.
Using deep neural networks for face analytics, Avigilon Face Appearance Search technology enables searching for a person by incorporating the unique characteristics of a face to find similar recorded footage of that person across a site. For operators, this technology increases the speed and accuracy of investigations, by detecting and understanding that it is searching for the same person, even if items such as their clothing change over time.
Avigilon Vehicle Appearance Search technology enables users to quickly search recorded footage and find a specific vehicle across a site. This technology is designed to provide security operators critical information about where and when a vehicle might have been before and after an event.
BOSCH has introduced a new range of Z-Wave home automation components. Using the VeraEdge Home Controller, it is possible to control over 220 devices including Z-Wave lights, locks, climate control and energy monitoring devices.
Additionally, the VeraEdge can already interface with and control the Bosch G Series integrated
intrusion and access panel, and will shortly be able to do the same with the Bosch Solution 2000 & 3000 Intrusion panels.
All of the interconnected devices can be controlled through an easy-to-configure web interface, or via a smartphone or tablet using the Vera app for IOS and AndroidOS. Users can create ‘Scenes’ which allow detections on various devices such as the alarm panel or thermostat to trigger actions on other devices, or to notify users via Push, SMS or Email.
All these features are available with no monthly fee. ♦

MILESTONE Systems has released XProtect 2017 R1, the first of 3 VMS product releases every year, in addition to bi-monthly device pack releases supporting third-party devices.
This frequent release schedule will ensure Milestone’s rapid response to market and Milestone community needs. XProtect offers a recording server performance of 3.1 Gigabit/S. This high-performance level enables Milestone community partners to offer large solutions using a reduced number of servers, or even smaller servers.
The processor-intensive task of decoding (rendering) video is offloaded to the dedicated graphics system (GPU) inside the processer, leaving the main processor free to take on other tasks. The GPU is optimized to handle computer graphics and video, meaning these tasks will be greatly accelerated. Using the technology in servers can save even more expensive computer muscle.
