Agent Vi Empowers ‘Spyke Security’ to Streamline Monitoring Service
“We chose Agent Vi’s real-time analytics because it is the most cost-effective solution on the market. Due to Agent Vi’s open architecture approach, we did not have to adapt or replace any components of our existing surveillance system. Moreover, the solution offered us maximum flexibility to work with a wide range of edge device vendors, applying different analytics rules to both fixed and PTZ cameras.”
Managing Director, Spyke Security
Spyke Security offers remote monitoring through their Command & Control Center in Alkmaar, Holland. The staff monitors several hundred cameras, 24/7, and accordingly Spyke Security sought a real-time video analytics solution that could be installed at its most sensitive sites in order to automatically detect and alert to incidents and events. Rather than relying on human observation alone, Spyke Security wanted to offer its customers an enhanced option which offers superior detection capabilities.
Spyke Security deployed Agent Vi’s real-time detection and alert software at multiple sites, integrated with various Axis network cameras and the Milestone XProtect Enterprise recording system. Various analytics rules were defined in line with the threat assessment for the individual sites including to detect unauthorized personnel entering / moving in restricted areas, to detect persons behaving suspiciously (stopping numerous times, delaying) and to detect vehicles that stop in sensitive no-stopping zones.
As a result of the automatic detections made by Agent Vi’s software, and the audio and visual alarms triggered, Spyke’s guards are immediately aware of any security breaches, incidents and suspicious behavior occurring at their sites, allowing real-time responses to the events. In one case, Spyke Security notified police to the entry of an intruder at a vacant construction site that they secure, following an automatic detection by Agent Vi’s software. The surprised thief was apprehended by the police.
