When first developed analytics required powerful servers with complex infrastructures, widely popular for corporate or government systems.
The past decade has seen the reliability and effectiveness of surveillance video analytics vastly improve, making accessibility of the software gain widespread growth. Developments in camera and server processing technology have allowed for analytics to run on them alone even when running multiple video streams or other applications.
As an accurate surveillance solution analytics can be used by users in a wide variety of environments including airports, bars, retail outlets, stadiums and so on. End users gain invaluable analytical data that can be intelligently used to strengthen business operations, health & safety, personnel management, video evidence retrieval and archiving of relevant information.
The capabilities of Genie’s WISH surveillance systems are significantly boosted with the introduction of its new analytics firmware. Built into Genie’s latest H.265 network recorders from their flagship WISH range. The analytics firmware provides its users’ more reliable information benefiting from the following features:
- Camera Mask – An alarm based event is generated if something is placed over the front of a camera. For example someone’s hand or an object
- Camera Scene Change – An alarm based event is generated if a cameras field of view suddenly changes – for example, if someone suddenly turns a camera to face a wall.
- Object Added or Removed from the location – By programming predefined areas, objects either left or added to the region are detected and will generate an alarm. This would be ideal for securing objects of value or areas where items/vehicles shouldn’t be left unattended.
- Intrusion Detection – Detects when a person or vehicle enters the area. Ideal for monitoring areas normally with a low footfall
- Line Crossing (A>B) (B>A) (A<>B) – A “tripwire” application that detects moving objects that cross a virtual line, making it possible to automatically trigger an alarm based on an event. Users can set up a maximum of 4 different tripwires, defining the direction they are triggered. This is ideal for monitoring entry and exit points or areas where vehicles/ people should be travelling in a certain direction.
With a user friendly GUI setup is easy, allowing users to select the camera and the intelligence feature they would like to run. Depending on the feature the user can set the parameters they would like to monitor, set trigger times, chose from a video pop up alert, email alert or both. Once settings are saved, the user can watch as the video intelligence takes action on their monitor.
The software helps to highlight the unusual from the ordinary, providing the operator with reliable information that helps identifies suspicious activity. Which in turn helps reaction time and quickly report the incident to a response team or emergency services.
Users will benefit from the support of Genie’s FREE analytics software features when using the combination of H.265 cameras that operate with the 4.1.0 firmware (compatible models listed below) and, NVRs from the flagship WISH range. Creating an intelligent surveillance solution to keep both personnel and assets safe.
The FREE analytics features are supported by Genie WISH H.265 Network Recorders purchased from 1st July onwards. For more information on our H.265 Analytics and other products, please speak to our sales team on 01707 330 541.
A well-designed transmission infrastructure can optimize a security system and, save on installation and operating costs. When transmission over long distances is required ethernet extenders or fiber optics are often implemented.
The use of PoE enables system integrators to easily set up the surveillance cameras without worrying about power distribution. A technology developed to deliver power through CAT5 cable. Ensuring a high quality IP image transmission Genie’s IP transmission devices employ the latest PoE technology, that are web-smart and support fiber optic transmission. With no network configuration required, the connectivity saves installation time and money. Switches allow for local connection to as little as 4 cameras all the way up to 24. What’s more Genie’s network switches have two modes: Default and CCTV. When transmission over long distances is required ethernet extenders or fiber optics are often implemented.
Default mode enables the switch to work as an industry standard PoE switch, with communications between each of the PoE ports. The downlink ports will have maximum bandwidth of 100Mbps and the transmission distance depending on the cable quality, can be up to 100m with PoE (Up to 30W). CCTV mode offers the user a further three unique features to the default industry standard.
The downlink ports will not communicate with the other downlink ports, they will only communicate with the uplink port, this function provides the advantage of further security for example; with three cameras installed outside, and another installed inside – set to default mode where each downlink port could communicate with each other, if an intruder destroys an easily accessible outdoor camera and uses a laptop to connect to the downlink port, they will be able to access all of the cameras and NVR fairly easily. However if enabled to CCTV mode, they won’t be able to access any cameras on the downlink ports because the downlink ports can not communicate with each other, they only transmit data to the uplink port (NVR).
“The switches enable installers to provide combined PoE & Ethernet transmission for a range of our IP systems. With a compact, easy installation design, by providing the customer with two choices so they can utilise on the switch’s capabilities, catering to their needs. Giving them great peace of mind.” – Lee Rhodes, Technical Director
On models such as the IP8ESP CCTV mode can simply activated with a flick of a switch. Turning off communication between the PoE ports but, allowing communication between each downlink port and the 2 Up-Link ports. Extending the transmission distance by up to 250m and increasing power to each camera. Installers and users using the IP16ESP and IP24ESP models benefit from an interface that allows the to see real-time information about their surveillance network, such as device status, PoE consumption data and network bandwidth utilisation. With full control over the PoE ports, cameras can be configured and managed.
What’s more all of Genie’s network switches have gold plated connector pins and 6KV Protection, meaning a much improved connectivity whilst helping to prevent an electrical fire during a power surge. Explore and discover the full benefits of Genie’s network switches range today.
Adrian Flux is one of the largest insurance brokers in the UK, based in a historic mansion 6 miles east of King’s Lynn in Norfolk the company employs around 1,000 staff members and has around 600,000 policy holders as of 2016. Parent organisations of Adrian Flux include Bikesure Insurance Services, Herts Insurance Consultants and Chartwell Insurance.
Adrian Flux recently added an additional office as part of their operation expansion after outgrowing their current premises just outside Kings Lynn. The company required a Paxton Net2 Access Control system for their new building. Operational continuity was important, as other offices across the country were using Paxton Net2 Access Control Systems.
During the tendering process many installation companies offered competitive quotes to install Paxton Net2 as requested. After presenting Genie’s award winning AC5000 fingerprint reader alongside the Paxton Net2 system, English Security secured the installation contract.
With the cost of tokens being substantial, together with the ability to use biometric and proximity RFID – Genie’s Virdi AC5000 meant that the proposed solution from English Security was not only cost effective in the long term but also extremely versatile.
This appealed to Adrian Flux, as not only were they getting an advanced system, but they were also saving considerably in the long-term whilst keeping their Paxton Net2 system as originally requested.
The AC5000 is a “Paxton Approved Integrated” fingerprint terminal, which also offers RF-ID Card and Pin code as access methods.Further more the AC5000 is a CPNI approved terminal for government use, assuring the customer that they are investing
English Security is an independent company established since 1998, who have a team of multi disciplined engineers offering installation, service and maintenance of Alarms, Closed Circuit TV, Access Control, Door Entry, Fire Alarms and Safety Signs.
As part of the installation, English Security went the extra mile by sourcing a custom made backing plate from a company called Rocard Ltd, which draws attention to the reader and doorbell whilst having the Adrian Flux graphics laser etched, giving it a real professional touch.
I’ve found the system to be flexible and reliable, allowing us a multitude of entry options, which enables us to select what suits the given situation best. The front end software makes it easy to change user rights and keep track of who is entering the building and when.”
-Robert Balls (Adrian Flux)-
“When approached by Adrian Flux they seemed keen to have the continuity with their other sites and have a Paxton Net2 system. We offered Net2 of course but provided the option of a Genie AC5000 because it offers Paxton compatibility and so much more. I was confidently able to recommend the AC5000 as an established tried and tested product while having the added assurance of the CPNI approval. We finished off the installation with a custom made backing plate from Rocard to frame the product and integrate the Adrian Flux branding.
