When it is about safeguarding your home or other similar premises, security camera is the first thing that strike our minds. We all know that one and the most obvious reason to choose these cameras is to remain cautious about any suspicious activity that might occur in the range of the cameras and ensure 100% safety.
A lot depends on the quality of the security camera that you use and what is the purpose of using that camera. The camera requirement can also vary based on its usage. Some might use it to keep a check of the family members or pets via mobile phone, others might just need to talk to a visitor that has come home in their absence. But the ultimate requirement is to be aware of what’s going on there when you are not physically present.
However, not all the connected cameras are cloud controlled and smart enough to identify the difference between what’s suspicious and what’s not. Captare – An Acuiti Labs’ smart product with intelligent security camera is fully controlled by cloud and its smarter algorithms that are specially crafted to give you utmost security when you are not around. It is capable of sending real time alerts to the mobile, immediately after recognising any suspicious person or object.
Captare – Not just Camera, but combination of Camera & Sensor
Captare is nothing but a small self-contained security video device which is a combination of cloud compute platform and mobile application. The device has a built-in video camera, a sensing device, communication hardware, and in-built video analytic capabilities. It operates both overtly and covertly and delivers real-time alerting via Cloud-based video analytics on locally captured video triggered by any suspicious events.
How does this Security Device work?
The device completely works on the pre-defines intelligent algorithms that are set on the cloud platform which is directly connected to the camera. As this camera device comes with a built-in video image capability, it clicks pictures upon being triggered by any movement. The clicked imagery is then sent to cloud, where Artificial Intelligence runs preselected algorithms to determine the reason behind why the camera was triggered.
Now you might be thinking about the trigger happening because of your kid playing in the garden or by your pets’ activities. But, as mentioned earlier all this is defined in the algorithms with the help of AI’s facial recognition feature. You can upload the pictures of known people and pets etc. so that even though the pictures are being clicked and being sent to the cloud by the device, but no notification is sent to the mobile app.
In case of the video imagery that does not matches to any of the input, an alarm is immediately sent to the mobile application in the form of app notification, an email and an SMS along with the Image of the suspicious person or object. Yes, this security device will notify you about any suspicious movement directly on your mobile, and help you take any necessary precautionary measures.
The end to end process mainly consists of the different activities performed by the major components of this AI based intelligent security camera device:
- Captare Device: Capture the image or video. It can operate both overtly and covertly and is intended to deliver real-time alarming / alerting via cloud-based video analytics on locally captured image / video triggered by events
- Captare Cloud Platform: Admin configuration panel and AI based video analytics. Receives the captured image / video on the cloud and runs some AI based analytics which then alerts the mobile (smart phones) of the relevant people.
- Captare Mobile Application: Alert and monitoring application which is designed to receive alert from the cloud system after the appropriate validation of the images / videos.
Smart Logics of Captare
- Face Recognition:This is one of the most important features of this smart device ‘captare’. This can help you in uploading a list of imagery of the known people and objects in the algorithm so that it does not trigger and send the notification on the mobile app when any of these comes in the range of the camera. But, on the basis on facial recognition, it will definitely trigger and send message if any stranger is observed in the range of the camera.
- Object Detection:Other important aspect of the device is that it has the capability of detecting objects with the help of smart AI algorithms on which the entire system works. For example, if a burglar that is trying to cross the fence of your premises is carrying some dangerous armaments like gun etc. you will be immediately get a notification along with the warning about the gun. The gun is recognised with the help of object detection techniques on which our smart security device works.
