Smart Home Security is already proved an essential when giving your home the best protection. With instant alerts, remote arming features and professional monitoring, Smartzone customers are getting the best experience and value for money with their home alarm system… not to mention we are cheaper than most of our competitors.
And while Smart Home Security is taking all the complication out of protecting your house, we have introduced a way to maintain the simplicity of our system yet make it even more intelligent.
How? By introducing Video Analytics to the Irish market. Video Analytics create an even safer environment in your home – meaning you truly get the best protection with our security system.
The intelligent feature makes it easier to understand what is happening in your home, providing an extra layer of security.
What is Video Analytics?
Video Analytics is a recently introduced feature on the Alarm.com app. The optional feature integrates with your HD Video Monitoring system to give more intelligent alerts and insights. Using Artificial Intelligence, the analytics tool quickly learns occurrences in your home. By doing so it begins to understand the difference between unusual and everyday, routine activity.
So, if you leave for work everyday at 7:30am and return at 6pm, it recognises this as something that is normal and happens regularly. This way if someone is detected around the house at 2:30pm, the feature instantly knows that this is unusual activity and that the homeowner should be notified.
The nifty tool also categorises your video alerts, by using real-time insight, to give you greater control and value for your video monitoring package.
What exactly can it do?
Camera used to serve a fairly standard function – video monitoring your home and saving to a harddrive for you to check out later. Smart Home technology transformed this by giving homeowners the option to save video footage to cloud storage so they can access only the most important video clips. The alert system meant that uses got instant notifications if anything out of the ordinary occurred.
Video Analytics has revolutionized how video monitoring works. The feature is so advanced that it can recognise if movement outside is the result of a person, animal or vehicle. Regular visitors, such as the postman, deliverymen (for those online shopping addicts), or neighbours, will be ignored so you’re not bogged down with any unnecessary alerts. These distinctions are made in real time before alerting you, or not, all according the preferences you set on the app.
We can now offer the function of creating zones and virtual, multi directional ‘tripwires’ around your home, so you are alerted the moment anyone or anything enters or crosses these sections.
With Video Analytics you know when
Pets break the rules: Want to know if it really is your neighbours dog who has been sniffing around your garden when you’re away? Or do you have a sneaking suspicion that your pet has been sleeping on your bed while your at work? You will now get notifications which detect the movements of animals inside and outside your home, depending on where your cameras are placed.
Visitors linger: Be in the know when an unknown visitor is caught lingering around your home, but not when the postman delivers your mail.
Vehicles stop: Get alerts when cars or vans pull up outside your home, but not every time a vehicle drives past.
You can add video analytics to your video monitoring system for just an additional €5 per month – not bad for that extra layer of protection.
