A challenge most businesses face is protecting its property, staff and equipment. If your business is under threat from a breach of security, however damaging it may be, it is essential that your security team is immediately made aware and is ready to respond.

So, what security solution can you use to make sure your premises and staff are always protected?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has come a long way in recent years, and machines are now able to perform tasks beyond the capability of human performance. One of the latest technologies in security solutions is video management software that is now so sophisticated the deep learning AI search engine within it can quickly locate a specific person, vehicle or event across an entire site without security staff having to look through hours of CCTV footage.

In a recent test by IPVM, Avigilon came out as being one of the Top Performers for its self-learning analytics and ease of use in comparison to other brands.

This comes in the form of Avigilon Control Center, award-winning video management software fully loaded with advanced video analytics capabilities to help you detect and act on events swiftly. Though this video management software is advanced it is easy to use and has a wealth of key features including:

Unusual Motion Detection (UMD)

UMD is an advanced AI technology that takes surveillance management to another level.

Imagine you are looking through video footage, but instead of trawling through hours of recordings to find what you need, this UMD technology has learned what to expect in any scene and will flag unusual activity to you. This means that you can do fast video search and go immediately to anything that is interesting or unfamiliar. This smart software reveals those events that might need further investigation so you won’t miss a thing!

Avigilon Appearance Search Technology

You can now input the physical descriptions of a person of interest, such as gender and clothing colour, and the Avigilon Appearance Search technology will easily search through hours of recorded video footage to locate who you’re looking for. The enhanced speed and flexibility of the Appearance Search Technology means that you can dramatically reduce incident response time and enhance forensic investigations.

H4 Video Intercom Support with Appearance Search

When combined with the H4 Video Intercom which is a secure entry system, the impressive technology within Avigilon Control Center can quickly identify and enable you to speak to visitors before remotely allowing them access to a building or site.

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) Analytics

The new ANPR analytics technology helps security staff capture, search for and identify vehicle license plates faster in order to deal with and resolve incidents quickly.


That’s not all. When combined with Avigilon Control Center, Avigilon’s Presence Detector (APD) is a discreet detection system, which can scan a room to detect human presence using radar technology whilst ensuring complete privacy. This is particularly useful for indoor locations such as banks, retail stores, changing rooms and health care facilities, where privacy and highly accurate detection is required. The self- learning radar analytics scans, learns and adapts to its environment and can detect stationary or hidden individuals even when the object is hidden or obstructed by objects such as blankets, cardboard, wood and drywall. It also detects fine motion such as breathing.

In Summary

Every business has its own unique assets such as staff, premises, regulations, budget – and each of these determines a specific need regarding security solutions. The new Avigilon Control Center video analytics software offers security professionals a wealth of advantages when it comes to operational efficiency, identifying risks and ensuring a speedy response to security incidents.
