Convergint Technologies is partnering with Camio, provider of a real-time video search engine, to offer its end customers remotely deployable video surveillance solutions.
Founded by former Google executives, Camio puts existing cameras to work to understand the problems that warrant human attention, according to an announcement. Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and other technologies, Camio turns standard 2D cameras into 3D sensors that track and analyze movement, the announcement states.
Tailgating, mask and social distancing detection, and SOC security solutions are added to any existing camera without additional on-premise equipment or complex integrations, according to the announcement.
“The inability of security cameras to differentiate between harmless motion and potential threats results in much of the $40 billion spent each year to protect people and property wasted,” states Camio Co-Founder and CEO Carter Maslan. “Camio real-time video search is a new SaaS category that radically changes security’s cost structure and effectiveness and makes proactive security economically feasible.”
Camio’s platform is said to expedite video review and prioritization for 50x greater efficiency via 90% fewer false positives and 5x faster search. Based in San Mateo, Calif., the company provides real-time video search for manufacturing, logistics operations, multi-property management, healthcare and educational institutions across 35 time zones.
“Technologies like AI are transforming physical security,” adds Eric Yunag, vice president of technology and innovation, Convergint Technologies. “The security industry faces enormous pressures to do more with fewer resources and transform information into intelligence for comprehensive risk management. Camio’s open platform, remote deployment and ability to rapidly bring new use cases on demand will be highly valuable to our customers.”
