This technology offers video analytics solutions for building management.

There are a number of concerns when operating buildings, such as the safety and security of employees, as well as the security of the building. This task can be difficult, particularly when it comes to large buildings.

The technology removes a lot of the stress on building managers by actively detecting fire hazards, such as individuals smoking in non-smoking areas, as well as detecting intrusion, loitering and abandoned objects. Particular areas of interest tend to be elevators, corridors and car parks.  This technology can count and track every vehicle that enters the building, analysing number plates to ensure that only licensed vehicles enter. It keeps track of available parking spaces in a car park, and alerts relevant personnel if it detects any suspicious activity or vehicle theft. 


The technology ensures that buildings are kept clean and safe at all times. Alerts can be configured to notify relevant personnel if the technology detects damage to an elevator, unattended objects and keeps track of the amount of people in an elevator at any one time.

This technology also acts as an attendance management system, using facial recognition to track the entry and departure times of employees. It then inserts the employee information into one central database for convenience, which removes the administrative burden from building managers.

The technology helps building managers by keeping track of every aspect of the activity in a building at all times, something that humans and ordinary CCTV cannot do.  

Some technical specifications for consideration:

  • Allows for on-premises, on-cloud or hybrid cloud-to-edge deployments
  • Minimal hardware requirements and short deployment times
  • Enable analytical ability in each CCTV camera in a simple plug-and-play fashion
  • Highly scalable and robust platform
  • Continuous online learning for future-proof performance
  • Draw critical insights from detailed dashboard


The technology covers a wide range of CCTV based video analytics for safety and surveillance activities such as:

  • Activity: Loitering detection, Access control, Intrusion detection etc.
  • Object: Abandoned object detection.
  • Person: Face recognition, People count, Attendance management, Clothing, Emotion etc.
  • Vehicle: Number plate, Tracking, Parking management etc.
  • COVID related: Mask detection, Social distancing violation, Thermal camera analytics etc.


The need to protect the physical security of important facilities and infrastructure is more critical than ever before. Conventional surveillance solutions depend on round-the-clock monitoring of the camera feeds by trained professionals. Given the scarcity of trained manpower, this method can be exhaustive and expensive for Governments and business. The technology can thus support in addressing the above listed gaps.
