Why Standard Motion Sensor Security is a Waste of Money – And What You Should Invest in Instead

Why Standard Motion Sensor Security is a Waste of Money – And What You Should Invest in Instead

January 28, 2021 (Fountain Valley, CA)

The answer: Advanced artificial intelligence paired with video analytics.

The year is 2021, artificial intelligence technology is used in products that you use every day and may not even notice. Products and software such as Apple’s Siri or your Gmail email account and Netflix all use advanced AI technology to deliver a supreme experience.  Artificial Intelligence is no longer a concept too complex or expensive to employ within your organization or campus.

Companies across the U.S. are investing millions of dollars in motion sensor technology which frankly is outdated, expensive and can cost you your most precious resources.

Here’s why you should upgrade your current security solution:

Motion sensors can’t tell the difference between a real threat and harmless movement

Your everyday motion sensor camera alerts you with ANY movement, that means it could be a real threat or trees moving in the wind. With the powerful video analytics of Avigilon, the system detects people or vehicles on your property when you are closed or in an area that is restricted. Not only will you have the ability to detect and react to a threat instantly, but you will also have accurate video footage of the event ready to send to law enforcement.

Additionally, Avigilon software can detect a weapon in real time. Saving those precious moments for help to arrive proactively, rather than reactively. (New release)

Cost Savings

With powerful artificial intelligence monitoring your campus or property, you can save money on human surveillance and put the dollars back into your business.

Paired with Access Control

Along with accurate threat detection, Avigilon integrates an access control system that allows operators to control who can and cannot enter your properties.

License Plate Recognition allows you to blacklist certain license plates effectively blocking vehicle access into an area, alert security when a particular license plate is detected, and open gates for vehicles with authorized license plates.

Eyes Everywhere, Always

With a standard motion detection camera, by the time a threat has come and gone it is already too late. With AI altering you to threats you can act instantly saving property and lives. This allows your employees, people to feel safe at school or work.

At blueviolet, we work hard to become your trusted partner in technology. We understand that you need more than a reliable product, but rather a reliable solution that can support you long after installation and can adapt to your business’ growing demands.

Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 7 introduces a new concept in live video monitoring, Focus of Attention, which leverages AI and video analytics technologies to determine what information is important and should be presented to security operators.
