Hikvision DeepinMind network video recorder

HIKVISION has launched its DeepinMind network video recorder, an intelligent NVR that learns to identify people captured by video surveillance cameras. The NVR can also learn to filter out false alarms that would have previously been triggered by non-threatening moving objects. The new 32-channel iDS-9632NXI-I8/16S NVR will be the first in Hikvision’s new range of DeepinMind products.

Hikvision is taking the deep learning concept and applying it to the security industry, yielding a series of completely new products. Imitating human beings’ synaptic learning and memory processes, the DeepinMind Series NVR incorporates advanced algorithms to achieve accurate and consistent video content analytics (VCA) performance.

Johnson Controls C.Cure 9000 with visitor management

THE latest version of Johnson Controls multi-integrative flagship C•CURE 9000 platform allows visitors to self-register using the new visitor management Kiosk Application for iOS iPad devices. Visitors now have the option of using a QR code to check-in instead of manually entering pertinent information into the application. Within C•CURE 9000, when the appropriate field is checked, the system generates a QR code for each visitor and for each visit.

The visitor receives a confirmation email which includes a QR code image and a calendar attachment. Once the visitor arrives for check-in, he/she simply presents the QR code at the kiosk and the information is prepopulated into the application. Once the visit is confirmed by C•CURE 9000 and a credential is created, a temporary identification label or card can be printed from the C•CURE 9000 client. An email notification of the visitor’s arrival is promptly sent to the host.

Alarm Monitoring: Start-Up Numbers Soar, Challenge Traditional Model

Alarm monitoring is a highly competitive market segment
Alarm monitoring is a highly competitive market segment

HOMEOWNERS worldwide have more security options available to them now than ever before, with multi-system operators and DIY solutions in abundance. But do they pose a serious challenge to professional monitoring providers?  

In the past, if you needed to purchase a home alarm or video surveillance system 10 years ago, typically you had two options: go to a professional solution provider or do it yourself. Since most all the equipment was wired and lacked interoperability, few were confident enough to go it alone. Things are different today, and we have hundreds of security systems available for doorstep delivery at the click of a button. How did this all change so quickly?

HIKVISION has announced a $US1.5 billion investment plan to construct 4 new R&D centers and 2 new industrial bases to expand surveillance equipment manufacturing and general R&D in 4 Chinese cities.

As security concerns and cybersecurity risks increase worldwide, Hikvision anticipates demand for its conventional security business will continue to grow steadily.

Hikvision said it would use accumulated profits to fund the project and may seek additional financing methods from traditional sources such as loans. Hikvision said its fixed asset ratios will remain low and operational cash flow will continue to be robust.

Hikvision’s new R&D Centers will be constructed in the Chinese cities of Xi’an, Wuhan, Chengdu and Hangzhou. Industrial bases planned for the Chinese cities of Chongqing and Wuhan will improve Hikvision’s manufacturing capacity and production scale for security and innovative new technologies.

Security Management, Electronic Security Inextricably Linked

At issue is trying to meld technology with operational procedures in a way that does not obliterate budgets, or task technologies with applications they cannot manage.
