Alarm.com releases video analytics that reports on extraordinary events in angle of view.

ALARM.COM has created an artificial intelligence architecture to support its new video analytics service that monitors video streams in real-time and alerts property owners of extraordinary events while ignoring ordinary events. The service is a remote upgrade to existing solutions.

“Alarm.com’s AI architecture and video analytics program are defining the next generation of smart home and business innovations,” Dan Kerzner, Alarm.com’s chief product officer, said.

“We’ve been able to rapidly grow our data analytics program, thanks to the scale of our platform and the depth of our research and development efforts. Alarm.com’s commitment to AI will enable our service provider partners to continue to deliver an unmatched smart home and business experience to millions of subscribers.”

According to Alarm.com, its video analytics engine is optimized to address a wide variety of smart security applications with cost-effective video cameras on the edge.

“Alarm.com’s computer vision research team trained the AI engine with millions of frames of video donated from field-deployed cameras, and extensive feedback from service provider partners and beta program participants. Alarm.com’s video analytics engine provides an intelligent new layer of security and awareness for home and business owners,” said Kerzner.

Using the functionality, Alarm.com subscribers can selectively control and manage notifications and assign virtual zones and multi-directional tripwires to monitor their properties for specific activity which might include vehicle movement, loitering, pet movement and remote management of contractors or deliveries.
