Smart video monitoring is a modern security essential. With video alerts, live camera feeds and 24-hour recording options, video makes it easy to stay in the know about important activity at your home or business. With Alarm.com’s newly launched video analytics service, it can be even more valuable. Video analytics is a highly intelligent security feature that monitors your property’s video streams to distinguish important events from routine activity. It uses this real-time insight to filter and categorize your video alerts, giving your video monitoring a new level of control, customization and value.
Video analytics uses cutting-edge artificial intelligence, developed by our computer vision research team for home and business security. It can tell whether a moving object in your driveway is a person, an animal or a vehicle. It can ignore a person who quickly visits your front door and then leaves (the mailman), but alert you if a visitor lingers too long in the same place. It makes these distinctions in real time before alerting you—or not—according to your preferences.
Video analytics also lets you create virtual “zones” and multi-directional “tripwires” for your cameras, enabling it to further categorize activity based on the layout of your home or business and the areas you need to protect. You can know when:
Vehicles come and go: Know when a vehicle stops outside your home, but not every time a vehicle drives past.
Visitors linger: Get a video alert if someone lingers by your front door, but not when the mail is delivered.
Pets break the rules: Know if your pet breaks the rules to nap on the couch when you’re at work—or if your neighbor’s dog pays an unwelcome visit to your lawn.
Video analytics is the latest in a line of proactive, intelligent safeguards developed by Alarm.com to keep your home or business safer, including Crash and Smash protection, Unexpected Activity Alerts and Geo-Services triggers.
