However, business leaders must exercise caution while choosing an AI solution to protect their place of business as the current physical security industry is rife with video surveillance tools and applications – how do you know which one is the right one for your business? First, let’s understand what AI video analytics entails. AI video analytics utilises computer software programs to analyse audio and images from video surveillance cameras in order to identify humans, vehicles, objects, attributes, and events. They function using machine vision, which is a series of algorithms or mathematical procedures that work like a flowchart or questionnaire. For example, surveillance AI is usually programmed to send an alert when it detects anomalies, and to identify whether something is an anomaly, the AI will compare the object seen with hundreds of thousands of stored reference images of humans in different postures, angles, positions and movements or learnt behavioral patterns stored in its knowledge base. If this sounds overwhelming, fret not, we will be

What is Extra-Low Voltage or ELV Systems?

If you  own or are constructing a building, chances are you may have come across the term “Extra-Low Voltage Systems” or “ELV”. Extra-Low Voltage Systems (ELV) which refers to all the systems in residential and commercial buildings that operates on low voltages.  ELV systems are an important component of  every building, as they provide the additional services that completes a building. These systems provide the additional services to provide security to the buildings, control access, connectivity to internet, phone and cable systems. As ELV systems usually comprise of a variety of sub-systems to meet the requirements of of all the services in a building, modern ELV systems are designed to be a total solution to be integrated for ease of management and to save cost. Other features of ELV systems are: It is now designed to work on Internet Protocol as the communication protocol, comes with an open architecture format, has a user-friendly mobile app and management software. Now that we understand more about ELV systems, what are their sub-systems or components? These comprise of:   Security System Integrated Security Management System (ISMS) Card Access Management System (CAMS) Lift Access Control System Visitor Management System (VMS) Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) System Guard Tour
