Analytics Triggered Mobile Phone Event Dispatcher

Agent Vi : 09 June, 2010  (New Product)
The Vi-System Event Dispatcher provides real-time event notification over mobile networks based on events triggered by video analytics
In today's fast-paced world, receiving alerts in the control room is not always a convenient option. Moreover, it is expensive to maintain staff dedicated to monitoring the surveillance video. Accordingly, Agent Vi created the Vi-System Event Dispatcher, specifically designed to enable notification of real-time events via a range of mobile communication applications. When guards are on patrol, or otherwise occupied and not present in the control room, they can select their preferred communication tool to continue receiving real-time notifications. With maximum flexibility for personalized notifications via email, SMS, MMS, pager or other application, the Vi-System Event Dispatcher enhances the users' ability to respond appropriately to emerging events, in real-time.

When Vi-System detects a behaviour in the camera's field of view that meets a pre-defined analytics rule (eg person crossing a line, person moving in an area, etc.), an "event" is sent to the designated monitoring application and may trigger a range of actions. However, there are a number of communication actions that are not enabled by monitoring applications, such as sending an email, SMS, MMS or pager notification of the "event". The Vi-System Event Dispatcher is an integration module that responds to this need, enabling notification by such communication services. The integration module offers built-in capabilities (eg sending emails) or can be customized to support additional communication applications.

The Vi-System Event Dispatcher offers the built-in capability of notification via email. The user simply defines the email recipients, mail server identification and credentials, and when an "event" is received, an email is automatically sent including text identifying the camera and event time, as well as the event snapshot (image showing the detected "event"). With email now available on many mobile devices, this capability offers maximum mobility for security staff. For individualized convenience, the email notification can be customized.

The Event Dispatcher can also be used to trigger additional communication applications such as SMSs, MMSs, pagers, external databases and more. A system integrator or IT professional can write a simple script to implement such functionality. On receipt of an "event", the script uses the application's APIs and event information is sent to the communication application.
