CSG leverages AI & machine learning to develop Piko Video Surveillance analytics to catch criminals. Utilizing people detection and notifications.
Watch CSG’s CTO, Levi Daily, share two real-life case studies.
At Cook Solutions Group, we utilize our own technology at all of our regional branch office locations. This way we are constantly learning and testing our own systems including Piko Video Surveillance, and how it integrates across platforms. We have dramatically reduced relying on a live human being until we need to. In these two separate case studies, CTO Levi Daily breaks down the importance of product development and enhancing CSG’s solutions.
Utilizing analytics, both Person Detection, and Intrusion at the same time, Piko can keep your facilities safe and deter criminals. With Piko’s customized rules engine, you can create a schedule and decide how you would like to receive correspondence.
Case Study 1: Artificial Intelligence (AI) people detection utilizing video and audio provides deterrent in Seattle, WA.
“One of those areas we thought really helped us was when we added artificial intelligence based people detection. Frequently, you will receive notifications based off of motion that doesn’t really matter. We really want to know there is an actual person there using AI technology” states Levi Daily.
One where CSG deployed this technology and it worked was at our Seattle, WA office. We had an issue with people going through our trash cans. However, we were able to solve it by using AI on our Piko video surveillance system to identify the culprits.
The audio speaker will sound an alarm and say "You are trespassing and being recorded" to warn people. If they don't leave, we will call the police.
No human action needed and it deterred the event. If they chose not to disperse, we can then notify our manager or network operations center to then call the police.
Case Study 2: Alarm leveraging video motion notifies manager & police with live feed in Corona, CA
Another great example is at our CA office where we had a break in during some construction. Levi shares
“Our cameras detected people and at the same time we received an alarm. The video was quickly sent to our boss and he shared it with the police on their way to our office."
"The police caught the criminals quickly, checked the video to confirm their identity, and then arrested them."
These are two great examples of how CSG practices what they preach. We use the technology we develop and then enhance it to provide a better customer and end user experience.
In this case it was Piko Video Surveillance combined with artificial intelligence people detection to create automated notifications. We have used the same technology to alert us about attacks on ATMs. These attacks include the use of hooks and chains, as well as skimming and fraud attacks.
Here are a few video surveillance analytics definitions:
License Plate Recognition: License plate recognition (LPR) using video analytics is a technology that uses video cameras and software to read and identify the license plates of vehicles passing through a specific area.
Line Crossing: Line crossing video analytics is a technology used in video surveillance systems to detect and alert operators when a person or object crosses a virtual line or boundary.
Suspicious Activity Notification : ATM suspicious activity notifications using video analytics is a technology that uses video cameras and software to monitor ATM transactions and automatically detect suspicious or fraudulent activity.
Object Detection: Object detection using video analytics is a technology that uses video cameras and software to automatically identify and track objects within a camera's field of view.
Heat Mapping: Heat mapping video analytics is a technology that uses video surveillance cameras and software to analyze and interpret patterns in movement.
Remote Entry: Remote entry using video analytics is atechnology that uses video cameras and software to remotely grant or deny access to a secure facility or area based on the analysis of visual data.
Mobile Alerts: Mobile alerts using video analytics is a technology used in video surveillance systems to provide real-time alerts to security personnel or other stakeholders on their mobile devices, such as smartphones or tablets.
