Video surveillance for financial companies: banks, ATMs, etc.

Xeoma surveillance for banks and other financial organizations

Aim 1: provide overall video security, timely detect dangers, ensure the safety of visitors, staff and property.

Solutions from Xeoma:

Banks are one of those spheres where prevention is key, because any incidents can become deadly – both in the direct and indirect sense. Any incident of criminal nature may not only pose a risk to employees and immediate material commodities but also have long lasting breach-of-trust effect and losses caused by idling. That’s why the deterring aura of video surveillance cameras is already a reason enough to have video surveillance in place. But there is also much more of what video surveillance can do for banks.

This is how Motion detector icon looks likeThe Motion Detector module for simple intrusion detection based on detection of suspicious movement in selected areas – perfect both for indoors and outdoors security. Advanced anti-false-alarm logic helps set the system to react only to people or vehicles in the frame, leaving out lights flickering, shadows, etc. Can be combined with Scheduler for reaction in off-hours only.

This is how Face Recognition module icon looks like If you want to take intrusion detection one step further and have the system not just react only to people, but also find their face in frame for easier further identification, Xeoma’s multifunctional AI-based module Face recognition can be used for that. Additionally, search by a picture of a person is available to find all appearances of this person through all recordings.

Icon for the license plate recognition moduleSimilarly, Xeoma’s multifunctional AI-based module License plate recognition (also called ANPR or LPR) can be used for the same purpose but with cars as it helps get an intruder’s vehicle and its license plate on tape to use for prosecution.
 

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Sound Events Detector If visual apprehension is hindered with obstacles, Xeoma’s intellectual Sound Events Detector can be used instead. The module will react to the sound of breaking glass or car alarm, which makes it a great tool to detect break-ins in areas that are not covered with camera vision.

Face Detector Emotions module in Xeoma video surveillance software Panic button takes a special place in security precautions of financial organizations. With Xeoma, regular panic button measures can be augmented by computer vision and video analytics. Learn more about a virtual panic button in Xeoma. The Sound Events Detector mentioned above is also part of it because of being able to recognize screams or gunshots, and the Face Detector (Emotions) module can detect anger or fear as the dominant emotion in a place (see more about it below).

• The Abandoned Objects Detector module will notify you if any object will be left unattended in camera view, which can be used as a counter-terrorism measure.

Smoke Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Banks are usually loaded with paperwork, which calls for enforced fire safety measures. Computer vision-powered smoke and fire detection of Xeoma with the Smoke Detector module can be an addition to traditional smoke alarms triggered by CO2 sensors; however unlike offline systems it can also procure visual evidence of the suspicious situation for review before the alarm is triggered.

• Xeoma offers reinforced security measures for access to authorized-personnel-only areas like money vaults. The two-factor authentication is created by the combination of the FaceID module with Smart-card reader or QR-code recognition. Read more about it here

Notifications in Xeoma video surveillance software Various notifications will keep you updated on important events: for example, the Sending Email module that will inform you about emergencies by email and attach pictures or videos.

Aim 3: analysis, control of operations to improve work discipline and customer experience.

Solutions from Xeoma:
Preview and Archive module in Xeoma video surveillance software Video surveillance can be used for quality control of a business everyday operations, post-incident investigation and identification of an offender, and as evidence. With Xeoma’s basic Preview and Archive module, it can capture both video and audio streams (sound might be coming from USB and IP microphones or those embedded into cameras), and both of them can be used for service quality assessment or for various kind of analytics (for example, for detection of a scream as mentioned before).

Screen Capture module in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma can also be embedded to ATMs, in which case its Motion Detector can have the system start working only when there’s someone in front of the camera (or if some action is detected on screen) thus saving disk space enormously. Besides, the Screen Capture module can be used to also record a customer’s activity on the ATMs screen, while Privacy Making can blur areas with confidential information (their PIN code or other personal data).

This is how Face Recognition module icon looks like The Face Recognition and License Plate Recognition modules that we already scrutinized before can be successfully used for entry automation. Face recognition can detect people, find their face and compare it to a “pass list” of employees, and work in tandem with automated gate barriers, turnstiles, when staff are coming or leaving the building. The License plate recognition can be used for vehicle access control with cars’ pass lists.

Face Detector Emotions module in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma’s AI-powered Face Detector (Emotions) (also known as the Emotions Detector) can recognize 7 basic human emotions (happiness, surprise, neutrality, anger, disgust, fear and sadness) so it can show what emotions you customers experience at the moment for you to make conclusions on customers satisfaction level and staff friendliness.

• Speaking of satisfaction level, you can bring extra comfort to customers by eliminating queues and waiting lines – for example, use Xeoma’s Crowd Detector module equipped with the queue detection capabilities.

Cross-Line Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software The Cross-Line Detector module can be used to understand customer traffic flow: count clients entering the building or particular rooms. For more precise counting that can tell apart new clients and loyal customers, use the unique customers counting feature embedded to the Face Recognition module.

Video surveillance in retail: for shops, stores, malls

Xeoma: How video surveillance can be used in retail

Aim 1: cut losses by proactively preventing offences (shoplifting, break-in, defacement, vandalism, etc.)

Solutions from Xeoma:

The number 1 issue in retail organizations – and consequently number 1 reason for video surveillance installation in shops and stores – is shoplifting, and video surveillance is a great tool to fight it. Safe to say that it’s probably always better to put in efforts to prevent a crime than spend hours on dealing with the consequences after it happens. First of all, prevention of crime starts with simply placing video cameras and the “Under Surveillance” warning signs in troublesome areas, which is often enough to drive away most of thieves. However, Xeoma offers a variety of other tools to fight shoplifting and other crimes typical in retail.

Preview and Archive module in Xeoma video surveillance software The “old but gold” way to use video surveillance is to get incidents on tape for investigation, fighting fraudulent claims, and forensic uses. While the focus shifts to prevention of crimes nowadays, getting video footage is still in high demand. Xeoma’s basic Preview and Archive module can capture and process both video and audio streams (sound might be coming from USB and IP microphones or those embedded into cameras) – and store them either locally or to remote disks, RAIDs, or Cloud storage. Besides, Xeoma can perform various types of real-time video analytics, most demanded of which will be mentioned below.

This is how Motion detector icon looks likeThe simplest tool for intrusion detection is Motion Detector that can react to suspicious movement in selected areas and is perfect for both indoors and outdoors security. Advanced anti-false-alarm logic helps set the system to react only to people or vehicles in the frame, increasing the chances to catch a real break-in or defacement episode and leaving out lights flickering, shadows, trees swaying, etc. Detection of motion can be combined with Scheduler for reaction in off-hours only.

Sound Event Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software If visual apprehension is hindered with obstacles, Xeoma’s intellectual Sound Events Detector can be used to detect intrusion through a window because it can react to the sound of breaking glass or car alarm. Alternatively, a simpler module – Sound Detector – can be used to detect just the unusually high volume of sounds.

Smoke Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Since malls are a place of public gathering, fire safety measures should be on the top notch level. Computer vision-powered smoke and fire detection of Xeoma with the “Smoke Detector” module can be an addition to traditional smoke alarms triggered by CO2 sensors; however unlike offline systems it can also procure visual evidence of the suspicious situation for review before the alarm is triggered.

• Xeoma has numerous integration tools, so that it can engage specific custom reactions upon detecting suspicious behavior, a specific event or object. And in reverse, Xeoma can receive external alerts, too, telling it to start doing its video analytics, notifications or recording.

Notifications in Xeoma video surveillance software Various notifications will keep you updated on important events: for example, the Sending Email module that will inform you about emergencies by email and attach pictures or videos. Alternatively, SMS sending, Sound alarm, mobile push notifications, Telegram alerts or other notifications, including custom ones, can be used.
 

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: automate routine processes

Solutions from Xeoma:

• Access control: combination of Face Recognition / License Plate Recognition with HTTP Request Sender or Application Runner, GPIO or JSON commands to control turnstiles, gates, barriers.
For two factor authentication use FaceID in combination with smart card reading or QR code reading.

• For integration with cash registers use HTTP Marking: it can add tags from the cash register to video footage. Search by tags is also available.

• Scanning through price tags: use Xeoma’s AI module Text Recognition for automated reading of price tags or labels on shelves.
For reading of products’ QR codes use Xeoma’s AI module QR Code Recognition.

• The Abandoned Objects Detector module can work in reverse way and detect empty spaces on shelves.

Loitering Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Work productivity and discipline tracking: Xeoma offers various automatic working time tracking tools, which help detect if workers are late for a store opening making customers wait or even go somewhere else. Moreover, Loitering Detector or the absence of motion option in Motion Detector helps detect if staff members are not in their work places.

Aim 3: increase profits by learning more about customers and employees

Solutions from Xeoma:

The first positive effects on retail starts right after the installation of video surveillance cameras: businesses experience a sales boom whenever customers feel safe. Safe environment is also great for increased work productivity and friendliness of staff, which usually also results in higher sales.

Demographics analytics in Xeoma video surveillance software Besides, contemporary video analytics – many of which utilize the advancement of artificial intelligence – can help in analyzing customer behavior to boost sales even further.
Live demographics analytics (Age Recognition and Gender Recognition modules) helps get valuable data on clients’ age and gender, which can be used by management to adjust the assortment and/or services for a better fit to the tastes of a dominating group, or to address the demand more efficiently attracting more of a new, so far excluded audience. Xeoma has a diverse range of tools to collect marketing information such as age and gender of customers in camera view. These intellectual modules are based on Artificial intelligence and deep machine learning. The demographics breakdown will help you adapt your assortment, interior, etc. to satisfy your prevailing customers cense, and employ the right efforts to catch up with the target audience.

AI-based Emotions Recognition in Xeoma CCTV Emotion recognition is a multi-purpose tool that can tell what emotions your customers experience at the moment, and make conclusions on customers satisfaction level, or how well they react to changes in the decor, store music, or to ads in a billboard.
Emotion recognition in Xeoma to recognize 7 basic human emotions (happiness, surprise, neutrality, anger, disgust, fear and sadness).

Demographics analytics in Xeoma video surveillance software Live Eye Tracking can follow the movement of a human eye’s pupil and thus gather information on where the gaze of the visitors of the place of business is directed. This data can be used to estimate their level of engagement with promotional campaigns (for example, billboards or ads), see how noticeable changes of interior design are, or establish best placement for promoted items. This is the best unbiased tool machine vision has to offer to understand consumers’ behavior, where their gaze takes direction first, what product catches attention and what is the most profitable location on the shelf to choose. With such marketing information collected, it is possible to improve your advertising strategy and thus your business. No special equipment or sensors required!

Cross-Line Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software The Cross-Line Detector module can be used to understand customer traffic flow: count clients entering the building or particular rooms. For more precise counting that can tell apart new clients and loyal customers, use the unique customers counting feature embedded to the Face Recognition module.

Video surveillance: Face Recognition Another way to use Xeoma’s Face Recognition is to detect particular VIP clients walking into your store and send a reaction helping you quickly arrange special treatment for them. Besides, Face Recognition can be used as an employee time tracking tool that will help detect situations where employees are late for work making customers wait.

• Having to wait is a thing that can spoil any business, so Xeoma’s Crowd detector that detects if there’s a queue will come in especially handy, aiding in realization if there is room for improvements on that front.
 
HTTP request sender in Xeoma video surveillance software Retail companies can benefit greatly from targeted advertising as well. Combination of Loitering Detector that detects customers spending a lot of time within an area (e.g. particular shop-window) and reactions like HTTP Request Sender or Application Runner will make it possible to play targeted advertising clips to customers walking around your store or a particular goods section.
 
• Get the perfect spot for product placement using heatmapping that helps determine which areas attract attention the most.

Video surveillance for construction

Xeoma: video surveillance at a construction site

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: enhance security of a construction site and its adjacent territory.

Solutions from Xeoma:

Prevent intrusion by installing a security system and putting “Under surveillance” signs thanks to the deterring effect they have on potential wrongdoers. That works against looters among workers as well.

This is how Motion detector icon looks like Detect trespassing in off-hours with Xeoma’s Motion Detector that allows to set different settings for various monitoring zones. Only react to people or vehicles and avoid false alarms with smart video analytics of this module. Stop the incident from unfolding any further with automated alarms (for example, with Sound Alarm), turning on the lights, or dispatching a notification to security personnel. Custom reactions are also available. Have the incident on tape for investigation, pressing charges with Xeoma’s Preview and Archive module. With PTZ Tracking Xeoma can make a rotating camera “follow” the object that was detected.

Camera-Embedded Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma supports detection of trespassing with external devices: using the camera’s embedded detectors (with the Camera-Embedded Detector module), special motion-sensitive fences made by Flexzone (with the Senstar PTZ Tracking module), “RIF Plus” systems made by START-7 (with the Smarthome – RIF+ module). Besides, you can use your own video analytics tools with the My Detector matrix module.

Thermal Camera Data module in Xeoma video surveillance software Working in construction requires concentration and caution. To prevent accidents, you can use Xeoma’s Thermal Camera Data module to spot workers who suffer from fever. Besides, AI-powered Face Detector (Emotions) can single out workers in an angry disposition, lest they potentially cause problems.

Detector of Construction Site Safety module in Xeoma video surveillance software Boost workplace safety with the Detector of Construction Site Safety (also called the Safety Gear detector) module that uses artificial intelligence advantages to detect either presence or absence of helmets or work robe (vests) in camera’s sight in construction sites and thus help ensure the compliance with health and safety regulations.

• Damages can be caused not just by people but by natural causes as well. Use Xeoma’s computer-vision-powered smoke and fire detection with the Smoke Detector module module for early detection of a starting fire.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: increase transparency of processes

Solutions from Xeoma:

Moving to PTZ preset module in Xeoma video surveillance software When one camera needs to cover a vast territory, Xeoma’s PTZ tours functionality can come to the rescue. With it, a rotating camera can “visit” several spots (“presets”) thus compromising between being able to detect something suspicious and having to install many cameras. A more sophisticated module – Moving to PTZ preset – helps Xeoma perform various types of analytics in each of such spots.

Timelapse (or speeded representation) is a great way to embrace the long process of construction in a short time, and can be used by management personnel to review a day’s work, or can be shown to customers to visualize the process of a building erection.

YouTube streaming module in Xeoma video surveillance software With the help of Web Server and Streaming to Youtube modules companies can broadcast live video streams from the construction site on their website or into another platform or social network. Online broadcasts are great for investors and customers since with this tool you can showcase processes and the progress of the construction.

• Global remote access allows ability to remotely monitor the construction process at any time and from any point on the globe without personal presence.

Video surveillance for public safety and safe city

Xeoma: video surveillance in safe city programs

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: ensure safety in the streets and public spaces, reduce crime rate

Solutions from Xeoma:

Xeoma is the perfect choice for 24/7 video surveillance with city-wide cameras. This way incidents can be caught on tape for further investigation and prosecution. The more criminals get repercussions for their actions, the lower the crime rate. Besides, presence of video cameras often acts as a deterrent, declining crime rates even further.

Xeoma also has other tools for crime prevention or minimization, optimization of law enforcement and city administration performance. Professional-grade video analytics will detect specific patterns in camera sight, and custom reactions and automatic notifications will be delivered in a convenient form: to your mailbox, via SMS, telegram, or even in the form of an alarm.

Sound Events Detector can be useful for detecting shooting or screaming in the street and notify police department immediately.

• Intellectual module Face detector (Emotions) can be used to detect negative emotions (anger, fear, etc.) in public places and notify police to possibly prevent a crime.

Slip and Fall Detector in Xeoma CCTV The Slip and Fall module can be used to detect if someone’s fallen in camera view, and dispatch an ambulance or at least a nearby patrol to check on the fallen person.
 

• Systems with Xeoma can be used for on-board video surveillance in public transportation that can carry out a range of duties from passengers counting (with the Crowd Detector module) to gathering video footage (with the Preview and Archive or Save to File modules) and uploading in to the main server when the vehicle arrives at the dock station.

Video analytics and color detector in ip cameras software Xeoma Xeoma has modules that can be used for aiding in compliance with safety measures during an endemic virus outbreak. Mask Detector can detect people with or without facial masks, the Crowd Detector module can detect if people are gathered in a group larger than allowed or if people are standing too close to each other. Color recognition or Thermal Camera Data modules can be used to detect a person with a fever in a place of public gathering.

Detection of Abandoned Objects in Xeoma CCTV Speaking of places of public gathering, another Xeoma’s intellectual feature – Detection of Abandoned Objects – can be used in airports, railway and bus stations as an effective counter terrorism measure that can automatically detect a suspicious unattended piece of luggage or bag despite a flow of people in order to prevent terrorist attacks. Besides, the Drones Detection option of the Object Recognizer Additional module will detect UAVs that can be dangerous.

Problems Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma is great for network clustering and centralization of video security cameras that will be required in such large network as city surveillance. Xeoma is designed for unsupervised work in background. It is equipped with features to detect system health issues, or sabotage – a Problems Detector that can recognize sudden changes in the camera image (glare or blackout), twist of the camera, loss of communication and the lack of updating camera’s images.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: use advanced video analytics to help law enforcement agencies

Solutions from Xeoma:

Text Recognition in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma can become a part of body-worn camera systems that can help capture what is happening in real-time and stream it online to a dispatcher. Similarly, the software can also be part of a van surveillance complex on-board of a police vehicle. Apart from regular surveillance capture and record techniques, such systems can be used for smart video analytics to “read” the surroundings: for example, the Text Recognition module is useful for detecting graffiti and ads that have prohibited words like “drugs”, or the Face Recognition module can be used for recognizing faces to find wanted or missing people, and the license plate recognition module can detect stolen or wanted cars that belong to missing people, criminals, etc.

• Border security is also one of the state’s top priorities. With Xeoma being able to work in no-Internet conditions, on off-the-shelf equipment, and to integrate well into various eco systems, it can be used for creation of relocatable surveillance systems for national security.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 3: facilitate road safety

Solutions from Xeoma:

Icon for the license plate recognition module Various solutions can be used to automatize detection of road safety monitoring. First of all, Xeoma’s smart License Plate Recognition module powered by artificial intelligence can detect cars, find their license plates slot and decipher their license plates number for further use of this information.

• Illegal parking: new Parking Spot module will notify of change in the selected spot’s status (empty / occupied).

Vehicle Speed Detector (mathematical or hardware methods) will detect if a vehicle is violating the established speed limit regulations. It can be used in combination with automated fining systems.

IP cameras software Xeoma Besides, the Modbus controllers module can be used for synchronization with traffic lights and detect if a vehicle doesn’t stop at the red traffic light. Alternatively, Color Recognition can be used for this purpose which relies on visual signs of the red color rather than internal commands. The Cross-Line Detector will help detect if a vehicle doesn’t stop at the stop sign, or switches lanes where it’s prohibited, of gets to the opposite lane into the oncoming traffic. The ANPR Sending to FTP module is designed to collect proves about the violation and send them to an FTP server of the fining system.

Video surveillance in HoReCa: hotel, café, restaurant, hospitality

Xeoma: video surveillance in HoReCa

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: provide overall video security, ensure safety of employees, clients, and property.

Solutions from Xeoma:

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Motion Detector Visible video surveillance can boost safety of employees, clients, customers and property by deterring potential violations by itself. Plus, smart Motion Detector with anti-false-alarms mechanisms will automatically detect unwanted movement in monitored zones in afterhours. It can be used in combination with a rotating camera, so it can “follow” the moving object for more information. Cover as much of halls, elevators, stairs in a hotel, motel or a hostel to have acts of vandalism on tape (with the Preview and Archive module) and be able to get compensation from a violator even if there were no other witnesses.

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Sound Events Detector If camera vision does not reach out to all corners of the territory, contemporary Xeoma can offer to use the sound stream for intrusion detection. Sound Events Detector will be triggered if there is a sound of breaking glass or security alarm that usually signalizes of a break-in – especially when combined with a Scheduler to only react to alerts in off hours.

Video surveillance in HoReCa: notifications Various notifications (Sending Email, SMS Sending, Telegram notifications, mobile push notifications or even custom alarms) will keep everyone who needs to know updated on alarming or custom events.

 

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Smoke Detector Computer vision-powered Smoke and Fire Detector in Xeoma can be an addition to traditional smoke alarms triggered by CO2 sensors; however unlike offline systems it can also procure visual evidence of the suspicious situation for review before the alarm is triggered.

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Slip and Fall Detector Xeoma has several intellectual capabilities for fighting global virus outbreaks. Besides, the Slip and Fall Detector will also be useful to detect if a person has fallen. When a fall is detected, the detector can call an ambulance (using the Application runner module), as well as notify relatives about the incident (email, SMS, push notifications).

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Cross-Line Detector For retail and food industries, Xeoma possesses tools for efficient visitors counting, so you can quickly get information about the number of clients who have visited the business. The statistics can be analyzed to make forecasts and plans to improve performance, assortment of goods, marketing campaigns, etc.

Xeoma Cloud will keep your recordings safe and sound in a Cloud.

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Object Recognizer Custom development: Object recognition is the multi-purpose module powered by contemporary neural networks that can tell apart people, animals, drones, birds, cars. It can detect particular object types in and around the premises. Other types of objects can be added that will help you automate processes (for example, it could compare what the hotel room must look like after cleaning is done, or if chefs are wearing the required uniform, etc.).

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: gather statistics, boost profits

Solutions from Xeoma:

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Eye Tracking Know your customer: use Face Recognition’s feature that spots returning customers to be able to keep tabs on how many unique customers a point of sales gets per a period of time. Other ways of 24/7 strategic analysis of the target audience include AI-powered modules like Age Recognizer or Gender Recognition to get insights about the customers’ demographic apportionment. Emotion Recognition will report on how satisfied clients are with their experience from visiting your establishment. The provided data can help assess the quality of staff’s work and perform changes needed to provide better service and ultimately raise sales. With Eye Tracking, the system can report on what draws a customer’s attention, where the caught on camera person’s gaze is directed to analyze product placement or reaction to promotions for further growth strategies. Besides, the heatmap function will visually highlight the most popular areas in a store.

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Web Server module Live broadcasting capabilities of Xeoma-based modern video surveillance solution can be used for creation of promotional or tutorial videos from live streams. This feature doubles as a trust building tool: live streaming can demonstrate how thoroughly the hotel room gets cleaned, what the view is really like, how clean the kitchen is, thus dispelling any hygiene concerns and other prejudice characteristic to the food industry.

Video surveillance in HoReCa: Crowd Detector Various work time tracking tools can help collect statistics on staff productivity, percentage of idling at the workplace, if they arrive at work late or leave early. The Crowd Detector‘s feature that can spot a queue can help the management get to know if there are issues with waiting time in your cafeteria or coffee shop. Addressing weaknesses and encouragement of enthusiastic, accurate workers will help increase work productivity.

Video surveillance in HoReCa with Xeoma: My Detector Automation of mundane tasks such as access control for people or vehicles will substitute low-wage human labor that workers usually neglect anyway due to its unrewarding non-varying nature. However, automation can do so much more nowadays in terms of helping manage a HoReCa business. For example, AI technologies can be used to train the cameras to be checking if the ready-to-be-served dish in a restaurant matches the master sample, tracking operative condition of equipment, reporting how many seats per table are usually taken and how long the customers are usually staying – and other. If you want to have a custom feature developed for you, please contact us for a quote. You can add your own smart detector to Xeoma with the My Detector matrix module.

• Xeoma offers several solutions for checking the staff’s work for signs of corporate policy breaches: combination of video footage with cash register information about a purchase can help fight unsolicited discounts or loyalty points fraud.

Video surveillance for offices

Xeoma video surveillance for offices

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: detect suspicious events (intrusion, break-in, trespassing)

Solutions from Xeoma:

Preview and Archive module in Xeoma video surveillance software Apart from 24/7 live monitoring, Xeoma can detect if there is movement during off hours (with Motion Detector in combination with Scheduler), alert your security service (with various notification modules), launch reactions – for example, save recordings. The Preview and Archive module provides loop recording – scheduled, continuous, event-triggered, or manually initiated – that can store recordings on-site to hard drives, or off-site – to cloud storage, network disks, NAS, or RAIDs, – and allow for advanced search through recordings and sped up timelapse view. Tip: Motion Detector can be set to react not just to any motion, but to the movement caused by people or cars only.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: Sound Events Detector There are more sophisticated tools to detect intrusion, trespassing, break-ins in Xeoma: the Sound Events Detector relies on recognizing the sound type rather than on seeing something suspicious and can tell the sound of breaking glass from background noise. Loitering Detector will spot if someone’s hanging around a “sensitive” area for longer than they should. Face Recognition can recognize people in camera sight by their faces and only alert you if there are strangers there.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: ANPR, the Number Plate Recognition module Similarly, the License Plate Recognition module can do the same with vehicles (recognize any unknown numbers, or numbers from block/pass lists). If Motion Detector‘s recognition of people or vehicles is not accurate enough in your case, an AI-powered Object Recognizer can be used that can also distinguish these two types of objects but better thanks to its advanced algorithms (moreover, it can detect many other object types). For cameras that support pan, tilt and zoom control commands, PTZ Tracking can be used to automatically “follow” a moving object. Problems Detector will let you know if a camera is being tampered with.

Having video surveillance in place has a crime preventive effect, frequently soothes an aggressive customer, thus creating a more safe and relaxed atmosphere for both guests and staff members.

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: gather statistics, control productivity

Boosting work productivity starts with setting the right environment. Video surveillance is one of the tools that will help: security cameras drive away potential criminals looking for an easy loot, they have a pacifying effect in case of arguments, help investigate misdemeanor accusations and not discourage workers by taking the wrong side in disputes, and they make employees who are about to do something against company policies reconsider their actions.

Xeoma, however, has to offer much more in terms of boosting work productivity and workplace discipline tracking.

• In most offices it’s essential that workers start their day sharp on time. Various working time control tools in Xeoma help automate the tracking of clocking in or out and have snapshots or videos of employees at that moment which will help fight fraud.

FaceID module in Xeoma video surveillance software In addition to automated access control based on recognizing employees faces or vehicle license plate numbers, stricter double authentication (modules FaceID in combination with Smart Card Reading or QR Code Recognition) is available which relies not just on recognition of a person’s face, but also compares it to their smart access card.

Besides, the Motion Detector’s “Detect only absence of motion” option will help detect if employees have left their workplace in the middle of the day in the fight against idling. The Face Recognition or Crowd Detector modules are both able to count the number of people in an area and trigger if the are more or less people in a camera’s field of vision than expected.

At the same time Xeoma’s Privacy Masking module can be used to blur areas you’re not supposed to record, or faces of customers – both in live view and in recordings. A nice bonus is that Xeoma can work with camera’s audio streams and even standalone microphones, so you can get recordings with sound for quality assessment – for example, in call centers.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: Emotion Detector If the office is of the front-end type, you might find these tools useful as well: the motion-activated heat map can detect large queues in time so you can re-arrange schedule to have more employees in rush hours. The Visitors Counter module will count the flow of customers. The Emotion Recognition additional module, based on artificial intelligence and neural networks, recognizes the emotions of customers and employees, helping to respond to unusual situations in time, thereby improving the quality of service.

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 3: provide convenient and efficient remote and on-site view of cameras, recordings

Solutions from Xeoma:

Multi-stories business centers and large companies with many offices can employ dozens – if not hundreds – of cameras, so it’s imperative that the video surveillance system is easily scalable, manageable and viewable. Xeoma video surveillance software provides various tools to make management of large quantities of cameras convenient.

• First of all, there are various ways for remote access (including an easy and totally free P2P channel). Remote view can be done from Xeoma’s desktop programs, mobile apps, or even web browsers. Separate accounts can be created for security officers or management with flexible permissions, and LDAP profiles are supported too. Depending on configuration, live view, recordings and settings can be accessed remotely.

• Next, there are multiple ways to make viewing more convenient, e.g. custom viewing grids that allow to view all cameras at the same time with opening a triggered one in a separate window or a larger box, optimizations for video walls/multiple monitors, for quick review of the most recent event. There are features like eMap – interactive plan of the building with icons of cameras and quick jump to a triggered cameras, or like device list – where all cameras are listed, grouped by user-defined trait, and can be found with a search bar. Besides, there are various attention-drawing methods in Xeoma to help operators pay attention to what is important and react quickly. See more about them in the “For operators” section.

• Various optimizations are employed in Xeoma to reduce its minimum system requirements. Thanks to support for dual streaming, Xeoma can be configured to require less robust specifications of disk space, network bandwidth or CPU. Support for hardware acceleration by means of NVIDIA and AMD graphic cards or Intel processors will help reduce processor requirements even further. Contemporary technologies (webRTC) are used for web view, too. Thanks to these optimizations Xeoma doesn’t require super computers and can work on regular off-the-shelf computers very well (and sometimes even on single board computers).

• 99% of cameras are supported, including “Fisheye” cameras for which Xeoma has a special dewarping module.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: My Detector Thanks to its extensive API, Xeoma can be integrated with third-party devices and systems. You can add your own neural detectors with the My Detector module, use detection capabilities provided by the camera (Camera-Embedded Detector) or request addition of needed devices or functions from our team.

For more information on tools for operators who will be monitoring the video surveillance system, please see the “For operators” section.

Video surveillance for production facilities: factories, plants

Xeoma for factories and plants with large amount of cameras

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: outdoor security – safety on premises

Video surveillance in factories, plants, and other production enterprises usually has tasks to ensure overall safety, reduce losses and spending (including optimization of labor costs), prevent vandalism and espionage, obtain information for analysis and subsequently increase profitability. Below is what Xeoma can offer to reach each of these goals.

Solutions from Xeoma:

The trend in video surveillance is to prevent any criminal activity and security issues rather than be used just for post-incident investigation, which helps cut losses drastically. It’s easier than it might look: putting cameras in plain sight along with warning signs about video surveillance in place is often enough to drive away most of thieves. To add up to that, Xeoma has over 100 features many of which can be used against trespassing, intrusion, and other criminal activities.

This is how Motion detector icon looks like First of all, Xeoma can perform various types of real-time video analytics for timely detection of a suspicious or alarming event. The simplest tool for detection of trespassing is Motion Detector that reacts to movement in selected areas and is perfect for both indoors and perimeter security. If it’s not enough to detect any motion in the frame, the module can be set to react only to people or vehicles. Moreover, it can be combined with Scheduler for reaction in off-hours only.

Object Recognizer module in Xeoma video surveillance software Another smart module – Object Recognizer – has an option to detect drones, which will help “catch” spying UAVs in sight. Besides, Xeoma’s smart Sound Events Detector can react to the sound of breaking glass or car alarm, while a simpler module – Sound Detector – can be used to detect just the unusually high volume of sounds. Interesting enough, Xeoma has a tool called Relay Switch that can invert the logic of reaction, and detect only the absence of background sound, which may be a sign of power outage or other sabotage.

• Speaking of sabotage, Xeoma’s Problems Detector can get triggered when there are issues with cameras or their vision, with system health or some network devices. For systems where it’s important to have 0 down time, the Failover method can be a life-saver.

Preview and Archive module in Xeoma video surveillance software Get incidents on tape with Preview and Archive that can capture both audio and video streams. Recordings can be used for forensic uses or internal investigation. By default, recordings are stored on the computer Xeoma is working on, but the system can be re-configured to have them in remote disks, RAIDs, or Cloud storage. Besides, latest versions of Xeoma can import video footage from NVRs and camera SD memory cards. Various backup tools will help make reserve copies to not lose important data even if a server malfunctions.

Senstar PTZ Tracking module in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma can receive external alerts from a perimeter security system (for example, from Flexzone sensors with PTZ Senstar Tracking), or from a camera’s built-in analytics options (with Camera-Embedded Detector). Xeoma has an extensive API and other integration tools, so that it can become a part of an eco system, a complex multi-purpose solution. With free rebranding, it can even bear another name – for example, the name of the overall system in place.

Surround View module in Xeoma video surveillance software The 360° Surround View module in Xeoma will help you create a panoramic view of the site, stitching images from several cameras into a sort of a “bird view”. This will help to see everything around a building ergonomically in just one slot.

Sometimes danger comes from within. In case of production, the main sources of losses are thefts and disasters brought by natural causes. Read on to get to know how Xeoma can help.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: indoor security – safety during the production

Solutions from Xeoma:

Smoke Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Large quantities of raw material, dust, production waste and by-products can start a fire causing major – sometimes deadly – damages. Smoke and fire detection in Xeoma relies on what a camera sees so it can complement traditional smoke alarms triggered by CO2 detection.

• Access control: combination of Face Recognition / License Plate Recognition with HTTP Request Sender or Application Runner, GPIO or JSON commands to control turnstiles, gates, barriers.
For two factor authentication use FaceID in combination with smart card reading or QR code reading.

• The Abandoned Objects Detector module can work in reverse way and detect empty spaces on shelves.

Loitering Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Work productivity and discipline tracking: Xeoma offers various automatic working time tracking tools, which help monitor employee activity: for example, detect if workers are late for work, thus making production stall. Moreover, Loitering Detector or the absence of motion option in Motion Detector helps detect if staff members are not in their work places or, for example, if a conveyor belt or a machine has stopped working.

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 3: increase profits by production optimization, automation

Solutions from Xeoma:

With artificial intelligence you can train your video surveillance to recognize any objects or patterns to get the exact type of production statistics or automate quality tracking you need.

Color Recognition in Xeoma video surveillance software First of all, it is possible to evaluate quality of the produce on a production line and single out defective goods. For example, if there are cracks in glass bottles, or if plastic bottles are deformed). It also can be applied outside of conveyors: for example, Xeoma’s Text Recognition can track if laser engraving is missing any words, and with Color Recognition you can track if the item is being painted in the right color.

Camera-Embedded Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Besides, AI-powered video surveillance systems can spot if the produce does not match the sample: a cake with no or wrong frosting/topping, boxes not fully filled with goods, bottles that are missing a barcode, meat or fish chunks of wrong quality. Also you might want to detect if there are prohibited or strange items (workers’ personal belongings, mobile phones, anti-sanitary items, wet floor, etc.) or behavior patterns – for example, to fight thefts or incompliance with rules. You can use your cameras’ built-in detectors (with Camera-Embedded Detector), or your own neural networks libraries (with My Detector), or you can request us to add the needed features into Xeoma.

If you want to have some kind of video analytics added to Xeoma, please contact us for a free quote.

• Statistics on “wrong” and “right” produce can be saved to reports for later analysis that will help address weaknesses and apply modifications to ultimately decrease spoilage costs.

Moreover, the system can trigger various other reactions upon detecting something wrong: from notifications to automation scripts or smart relay switches that can help to discard defective produce automatically. Or you can simply get reports on the overall production effectiveness to track how different shifts perform.

Safety Gear Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software In addition to working on improving work place discipline video surveillance can also help comply with health and safety regulations: the Safety Gear Detector module can see if people in sight are wearing protective helmets, while the Mask Detector in the Face Recognition module can detect if people are wearing face masks or not. More “objects” can be added to that list: gloves, hair restraints (hair or beard nets, bouffant cap), aprons or other specific uniform clothing, etc. The above mentioned Smoke Detector will help create a better fire alarm system at virtually no additional cost.

• Like in any large video surveillance installation, video surveillance for factories, plants and other types of production facilities has various utility tools to make view of dozens of cameras more convenient and less tiresome. First of all, it’s adjustable camera layouts (grids), with support for multiple monitors, pop-ups of alerted cameras and various on-screen information, configurable window transparency and fonts and the option to set up automatic switching between cameras. Loop recording with instant replay of the most recent event and Marking (camera overlay) for embedding time and date, custom text, GPS coordinates, or image stamp over camera’s stream are some of very popular features helping security officers have everything they need. Management of numerous cameras is easier with Xeoma’s Device list or multilayered eMap. And besides manual PTZ control, Xeoma offers automatic object tracking with zoom.

All in all, whatever weaknesses, challenges, analysis or automation goals your production business may have, contemporary video surveillance can help!

Video surveillance for marketing teams and advertising companies

Xeoma: video surveillance for marketing teams and advertising companies

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: get to know your customers, analyze their habits, preferences and behavior

Solutions from Xeoma:

Besides its traditional use for video security, video surveillance can help marketing teams and advertising agencies too! One of the main directions of marketing that video surveillance can help with is getting to know your clientele, their age, gender, tastes, what attracts them or what makes them surprised, angry or happy. This information is a gold mine for growth strategies.

Demographics:
Gender Recognition in Xeoma video surveillance software First of all, Xeoma has a diverse range of tools to collect marketing information – for example, age and gender of customers in camera view (with Age Recognizer and Gender Recognition modules). These intellectual modules are based on Artificial intelligence and deep machine learning. The demographics breakdown will help you adapt a business’s marketing campaigns, products, services or environment to satisfy the prevailing customers cense, and employ the right efforts to catch up with the target audience.

Evaluation of marketing efforts success rates:
With advanced video surveillance solutions like Xeoma you can get unbiased truth of customers’ real-world reaction to marketing efforts. Xeoma offers the following options here:

Video surveillance for marketing: Emotion recognition Emotions are very hard to hide and usually precede humans’ urge to suppress them, that’s why it is such a show-all characteristic, especially in marketing. Emotion recognition in Xeoma is designed to recognize 7 basic human emotions (happiness, surprise, neutrality, anger, disgust, fear and sadness) of people in sight so it can help you get an insight on what customers truly feel about a promo stand, a new product, digital innovations, or an ad.

Eye Tracking in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma’s unique feature – live Eye Tracking – is using the best of neural networks advancements to tell the direction of a person’s gaze. Just like in case with emotions, people rarely control where their eye wander to, so it’s a perfect marketing tool to understand consumers’ behavior: what product catches their eye first, where their gaze takes direction when they step onto your territory, and how well your new banners or ads perform: are they really as attention-drawing as you want them to be?

This is how Motion detector icon looks like If you’re more interested in actual actions rather than intentions, you can use Xeoma’s simpler but similar feature – heat map – that is based on movement tracking by Motion Detector and will display in vivid colors what areas are most/least visited. Again, this is useful for finding perfect spots that attract attention the most (for example, to place promo indoor panels correctly or get the perfect spot for product placement).

Cross-Line Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software By means of Visitors Counter module in Xeoma you can easily collect information about customers’ flow to count visitors and use this statistics in analysis of marketing campaigns. A more advanced version of this module – the Cross-Line Detector module – can be similarly used to understand customer traffic, but it can also count clients entering the building or particular rooms separately from those who leave these areas.

Video surveillance for marketing teams: Face Recognition But there’s even more than that: for more precise counting that can tell apart new clients and loyal customers, use the unique customers counting feature embedded to Xeoma’s Face Recognition module that helps estimate how many new customers a new campaign, a banner or a promo stand attracts, rather than count any visitors.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: attract more customers with proactive strategies automatically

Solutions from Xeoma:

Xeoma has a number of features that makes video surveillance in marketing not just a passive by-stander that witnesses events, counting and gathering statistics. Instead, it can assist your marketing efforts quite actively.

Loitering Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software For example, if a person is standing in front of a certain shopping window for some time, it must mean they are interested in the products that are there – but still hesitating to make a choice. That’s where targeted advertising comes into play, helping to transform potential customers into real ones. With modern video surveillance, you can detect such situations using Loitering Detector and launch a reaction of choice. That can be either letting a manager know or starting a promo video on that product on a TV next to the stand – or something else, you decide!

Video surveillance for marketing with Xeoma: Face Recognition Place video cameras behind a cashier so that when they are making a loyalty card for a customer, Face Recognition can take a snap of their face and add it to their profile. Next time this person is seen walking by a store (by another camera – for example, one that is used for visitors counting), you can set it to send a text or an email to them with a special offer. They’re already nearby so that would certainly make them consider taking a few steps back for that profit.

Video surveillance for marketing with Xeoma: Fashion Store New, unusual and technological things are very attractive to people because of their novelty effect. Xeoma’s coming soon module Fashion Store is what will make customers stop in their way and take a look. This module helps you turn nearly any regular monitor into a virtual dressing room – a screen that lets them “try on” products by placing them onto their avatar with their head and body. Cool, right?

YouTube streaming module in Xeoma video surveillance software A simpler yet also effective way to draw attention is just showing camera live streams on a big screen somewhere it can be seen. A sushi place can show how a customer’s wok is being prepared while they wait nearby, a car repair shop can show how vehicles are getting cleaned or fixed, a factory can show how a heavy machinery item is being assembled, a zoo can show different animals’ enclosures, and so on. With features like timelapse hours of recordings can be compressed into seconds to create a breathtaking clip, and with automated scrolling of cameras the screen can switch between cameras to always keep customers’ attention. And of course, live streams can be embedded to a company’s blog, website, or even a YouTube account acting like a trust gaining tool or a an entertainment.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 3: have it as easy as possible

Solutions from Xeoma:

Xeoma’s advantage is that it is extremely easy to work with. It doesn’t require specific training, and is ready to work with in seconds after being discovered. It supports major operating systems so it’s easy to continue using the one you have been using all along.

• While usually Xeoma comes in the form of desktop software, there is also a Cloud service that Xeoma offers that means that the advertising agency doesn’t have to assemble an industrial-grade server station or maintain it. Just a high-quality IP camera and an Internet connection will do in this case, because Xeoma Cloud will take up all the rest: all camera processing, recording, reporting and notifications will be done by Xeoma in a Cloud. Conveniently priced as a subscription, Xeoma Cloud allows to start out small, and cancel or expand the account as you go.

• Xeoma supports 99% of cameras in the market, and is flexible in terms of the equipment you use, allowing for example to use single board computers to cut the cost for a small video surveillance system with just a few cameras.

• Xeoma’s videos, articles, an extensive user manual guide and responsive technical support are all at your service to help get any creative marketing ideas come to life.

Video surveillance for smart home, IoT systems

Xeoma: CCTV for smart home, IoT systems

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: video security as a part of a smart home system

Solutions from Xeoma:

Xeoma video surveillance software offers various tools for integration into third-party systems and with devices. Xeoma can accept external commands to switch on or off some of its functions – or in reverse it can send its commands, videos or analytics results into a complex system.

IP cameras software Xeoma: Modbus controllers module First of all, it’s its extensive API – for example, JSON API – and other integration tools, so that it can become a part of an eco system. Specifically for smart home systems Xeoma has a unique module Modbus controllers that is designed to receive commands from controllers operating under the Modbus protocol to trigger the necessary reactions in Xeoma. Different reactions can be set for different signals of such a controller, for example, to open an automatic gate upon recognizing a familiar license plate number in camera sight.

IP cameras software Xeoma: GPIO module IoT solutions usually don’t require industrial-grade equipment and can work even in single-board computers like Raspberry Pi instead, many of which are powered by ARM-processors. Not any software works in such environment, let alone one with smart AI features, but Xeoma does! Besides, exclusively for ARM-based devices Xeoma offers the GPIO module that works in tandem with a micro computer’s control pins – also perfect for smart home integration!

Integration of Xeoma video surveillance: My Detector module Xeoma has over 100 features, including more than 30 tools for smart video analytics. However, if you don’t find what you are looking for in Xeoma, you can use your own smart module inside Xeoma, thus getting all the fine tuning of your own video analytics tools while keeping all other benefits of Xeoma. Use Xeoma’s matrix module called My Detector that allows to upload libraries for your own smart detector.

IP cameras software Xeoma Video streams from Xeoma can be embedded to a website with the Web Server module and its webAPI. Besides, with the Marking module a custom text, GPS data or a watermark can be applied to camera streams that Xeoma processes. The Unitor module can help “stitch” several cameras together into a single stream. Xeoma has re-streaming possibilities as well: with RTSP Broadcasting you can input a USB camera and emulate an RTSP network stream as an output, or with Streaming to Youtube you can broadcast camera streams to YouTube or RuTube blogs.

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: automation, not just security

Solutions from Xeoma:

IP cameras software Xeoma Besides being an all-seing eye and a 24/7 watchdog, Xeoma has several lesser-known abilities that can help with other security tasks! Let’s start with Xeoma’s intelligent module called Smoke Detector that takes advantage of computer vision to recognize early signs of a fire (a visible smoke) or an active fire and engage the in-place fire suppression complex. Besides pulling a command to start the smart home’s fire extinguishing procedures, it can send a mail alert, a text or push notification about the emergency, and even automatically call a fire brigade.

Loitering Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Intrusion detection is a basic feature of video surveillance, but what about intrusion prevention? When being a part of a smart home system, Xeoma can detect suspicious behavior or idle standing (for example, with its Face Detector (Emotions) or Loitering Detector modules) and act on it: even a thing as simple as lighting a front porch light bulb can scare away potential crime doers who wanted to remain hidden in the dark and unrecognized. Besides, as a preventive strike, you can even schedule turning on the lights in your house automatically when you’re away to make it look as if someone was at home.

Smart home with Xeoma video surveillance: Emotion Detector Similarly, with the help of Xeoma you can set up automated changes of air conditioning, floor heating, roller shutters or even plant watering smart devices. With Xeoma’s advanced video analytics, the adjustments can be automatic, relying solely on computer vision detection: it can play background music when the system sees that you are sad (with Face Detector (Emotions)), volume of music can be toggled down when you’re having a call or as it’s getting late. If a thermal imaging camera does find that your body temperature or the room temperature drops, it can adjust a thermostat to a preset position, etc.

Cross-Line Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software For example, to set up automatic closing of roller shutters when you leave, use the combination of Cross-Line Detector with Face Recognition module that will detect your leaving the house and a reaction module to send the command to the shutters control unit.

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 3: Xeoma as a part of an IoT bundle

Solutions from Xeoma:

• Xeoma can easily become a part of your ready-to-use kit for smart home and IoT systems or a universal NVR. Xeoma video surveillance software can work in servers powered by various operating systems, including many of most popular Linux distros that are famous for their flexibility. Various optimizations are utilized in this solution to ensure lesser resources consumption and inter connectivity with a wider range of cameras or hardware parts. That means that it is easier to assemble a kit with Xeoma on board than it would be with other software.

• With free rebranding, it can even bear another name – for example, the name of the complex multi-purpose solution you offer. Besides, it’s also a customization tool helping you make a niche-specific version of Xeoma void of any features that users won’t need.

• Flexible prices of Xeoma also do their part: first of all, Xeoma’s 6 editions offer various sets of features at corresponding affordable prices. Besides, special offers and partner programs are available for those interested in embedding Xeoma into their solutions. Besides, there is an option for monthly subscription to Xeoma instead of buying flat-price perpetual licenses.

Video surveillance for vehicles, cars, parking

Video surveillance solutions for vehicles, cars, parking

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: video security for cars and their parking spaces

Solutions from Xeoma:

Video surveillance can help ensure safety of a vehicle in a parking lot – either a private or a public one. It works against car hijacking, damages made by humans, animals or natural causes. The beauty of the solution is that it’s not a passive witness of an alarming event anymore: a video surveillance system can spot something wrong early and launch reactions for you to be able to interfere in time to stop it, minimizing the damages. And by “something wrong” we mean a whole range of bothering events or suspicious behavior:

This is how Motion detector icon looks like Motion Detector will detect if there is any motion around your car parked in the driveway or a garage. In its more advanced version, Motion Detector can react just to people or vehicles, which is a way to minimize false alarms in a “busy” background. For better recognition of people or vehicles or for reaction to animals, use another module called Object Recognizer instead. Loitering Detector will help spot if someone’s around your car for too long (you define how long is “too long”). Sound Events Detector is a way for the system to “hear” a certain type of sounds – like a car alarm, especially if a car is parked in an underground parking where you can’t hear it. Smoke Detector will see if the car has been caught on fire.

Unlike human overseer, video surveillance is tirelessly working 24/7 with no breaks, vacation or sick days. Computer vision is not prone to distraction or falling asleep in an overnight shift.

Thus, cameras powered by Xeoma can capture appearance of strangers in a private territory, or do more advanced video analytic work to tell about other types of dangers. Besides, recordings will help identify intruders, arsonists or hijackers.

Video surveillance for cars: license plate recognition And don’t forget that besides security tasks contemporary video surveillance solutions can be used for automation – for example, automated opening of the garage door upon recognition your family van driving in (use the “ANPR” module and a reaction – for example, a GPIO module or a Modbus Controllers one).

Video surveillance with Xeoma: HTTP Request Sender Instant reactions: Xeoma’s notification modules (pop-up window, sending e-mail or SMS, mobile push notifications) will alert you on an alarm event, while modules like Application Runner or HTTP Request Sender can launch some other program or your own script, or send a custom command.

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: video surveillance for businesses that work with cars

Solutions from Xeoma:

Video surveillance with Xeoma: Parking Spots State-of-the-art CCTV systems offer more opportunities to business that deal with cars rather than just provision of security. For example, in parking lots you can get a high level of automation. Combination of the Parking Spots module that can tell if a parking space is empty or taken, and the ANPR (License Plate Recognition) module that can capture and recognize license plate numbers can become a part of a paid parking routing and billing solution.

Gas pumps frequently operate in the “pay after you fill your tank” way as it is more precise and more convenient to both customers and cashiers. The other side of the coin is that once in a while there’s someone who drives off without paying. It is therefore essential to have cameras filming all cars and their license plates, so that the debtor can be found and charged – a task that almost any video surveillance can do, Xeoma included. Apart from forensic uses, video surveillance often aids in immediate resolution of conflict situations with video footage being an undeniable incorruptible truth-teller of any event.

Smoke Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Gas stations used to be a popular go-to target for robbers looking for quick money: in most cases, such places are desolate (so there are less chances of being interrupted or caught by the police) and they usually do have money. That changed with video surveillance becoming omni-present in such remote places, which is a proof that cameras do have an anti-crime deterrent effect and are well worth the money spent. In addition, modern solutions like Xeoma have a number of applied tools like computer-vision Smoke detector, or a behavior analysis tool, that help cut dangerous situations short before they unfold into a disaster.

YouTube streaming module in Xeoma video surveillance software With Xeoma’s flexible layouts and camera view modes, a car repair shop can show camera streams live from the car boxes on a big screen in the waiting hall, demonstrating how vehicles are getting cleaned or fixed. It’s a simple yet effective way to make video surveillance double as an entertainment tool, an alluring shtick that helps your business stand out. Besides, embedding camera streams into a corporate website can show “behind the scenes” content acting like a trust gaining tool. Features like timelapse can compress hours of recordings into short attention-gripping clips for your YouTube channel. And speaking of YouTube, Xeoma has the Streaming to YouTube module for live broadcasts to that platform.

Aim 3: on-board video surveillance

Solutions from Xeoma:

Having cameras on-board of a vehicle is a common new reality of public transportation – buses, taxis, trains. It’s no surprise: video surveillance works in favor of both drivers and passengers because people tend to behave and be more responsible when they know they are being watched – let alone recorded. Besides, as usual, video surveillance can record incidents of various kinds and be used for investigation or in cases of a “he said-she said” conflicts. Xeoma’s advantage in this respect is that it can work without any Internet access at all. Recordings can be copied to the central work station nightly when the vehicle arrives at docks. And even in cases when remote access will be needed (for example, when a dispatcher needs to be able to peek into the cameras on-board of a vehicle or view recordings at all times) Xeoma can work with low network speeds of a mobile Internet connection. Besides, with various integration tools Xeoma can become a part of a complex eco system that includes video surveillance, billing, work schedule, and other daily operations of a transportation business.

Demographics analytics in Xeoma video surveillance software Live video analytics: both recordings and live streams can be used for on-board video analytics like passengers counting (with the Crowd Detector), demographic analysis (with Age Recognition and Gender Recognition modules). Besides, custom video analytics can be applied for example when you want to see if all passengers have a ticket, if someone flashes a weapon, or other prohibited objects, etc. In Xeoma you can use your own video analytics library with the My Detector matrix module, or let us develop custom video analytics for you and add it into Xeoma as a new module or a new option.

Logistics: on-board video surveillance is also great for private transportation, logistics and delivery business. Track your trucks and get live information en route as well as all other benefits of video surveillance. A combination of Parking Spots module (which can tell if a specific space is empty or taken) and the ANPR (License Plate Recognition) module can automatically guide a freshly arrived truck to a free unloading dock, while not letting any trucks in that are not yours.

Xeoma doesn’t have over-the-roof hardware requirements so it’s easy to collect equipment and create a compact kit that does the job. For example, it can work in single board computers like Raspberry Pi or Orange Pi with ARM or Intel processors, so it can be used even in e-scooters where there is so little room for equipment!

Video surveillance for farming

What video surveillance systems can help with in farming

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: detection of intrusion, trespassing.

Solutions from Xeoma:

This is how Motion detector icon looks likeThe Motion Detector module for simple intrusion detection based on detection of suspicious movement in selected areas – perfect both for indoors and outdoors security. Can be combined with Scheduler for reaction in off-hours only. Advanced version of Motion Detector can be set to react not just to any motion, but to the movement caused by people or cars only.

This is how Face Recognition module icon looks like Xeoma’s multifunctional AI-based module Face recognition can be used for advanced intrusion detection and/or entry automation. The module is capable of detecting people in the camera field of view, finding and recognizing their face by comparing it to an external database or one created manually. In other words, it’s great for monitoring not only when employees come and go, but also if a stranger is detected. Special pass or block lists, as well as search by a picture of a person are available.

Icon for the license plate recognition moduleAdditionally, Xeoma’s multifunctional AI-based module License plate recognition (also called ANPR or LPR) can be used for vehicle access control that works similarly to the above mentioned Face Recognition – but with cars.
 

Xeoma video surveillance in farming: PTZ Tracking will help to follow a moving object For cameras that support pan, tilt and zoom control commands, PTZ Tracking can be used to automatically “follow” a moving object – which is a much needed tool in regularly vast territories of a farm. This way one overview camera can be used for long-distance view and zooming on a suspicious area if something’s found amiss there.

• Speaking of PTZ functionality, Xeoma also supports manual PTZ control as well as working with cameras that allow to make PTZ presets and PTZ guard tours. Again, an overview long-distance camera can be positioned to overlook a great part of the territory and rotate and zoom in to pre-set positions according to a patrol tour schedule to see those areas in more details.

Xeoma video surveillance in farming: Surround View The 360° Surround View module in Xeoma will help you create a panoramic view of the site, stitching live streams from several cameras into a sort of a “bird view” to conveniently view the surrounding areas. While the 360° Surround View module is best used with wide angle cameras with the 180° view, a simpler module for images stitching called Unitor can be used with regular cameras.

If visual apprehension is obscured, Xeoma’s intellectual Sound Events Detector can be used instead. The module will react to the sound of breaking glass or a car alarm, which makes it a great tool to detect break-ins in areas that are not covered with camera vision.

Thermal Camera Data module in Xeoma video surveillance software Another specific way to detect intrusion when observation is hindered is to use thermal imaging cameras that rely on the temperature of objects. Xeoma’s Thermal Camera Data can work with such cameras allowing you to set to which temperature it should react – whether it is people, birds or animals.

Notifications in Xeoma video surveillance software Various notifications will keep you updated on important events: for example, the Sending Email module that will inform you about emergencies by email and attach pictures or videos. Alternatively, SMS sending, Sound alarm, mobile push notifications, Telegram alerts or other notifications, including custom ones, can be used.
 

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: smart features to improve everyday operations

Solutions from Xeoma:

Object Recognizer module in Xeoma video surveillance software Fish farms and marine fishing vessels would certainly benefit from the Seabird Recognition option in Xeoma’s Artificial-Intelligence-powered Object Recognizer module that can detect oceanic or sea birds in the camera image. Such functionality can be used to detect and repel seabirds in a timely manner, reducing profit losses. This module can work in conjunction with Sound Alarm, HTTP Request Sender or GPIO modules, setting necessary reactions or notifications.

Bird Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Object Recognizer can detect regular birds as well, which might be the ideal solution for crops farms. Also, Xeoma has a special module called the Bird Detector, which is also based on artificial intelligence and is designed to detect birds from a distance of up to 350 meters even in busy backgrounds, and track their flight route with a rotating camera (however, a fixed thermal camera will also do).

Moving to PTZ preset module in Xeoma video surveillance software We’ve talked about some PTZ features of Xeoma in the Aim 1 section, but there’s one more feature that is more sophisticated called Move to PTZ Preset. What makes this module different is that it can help perform various analytics when it “stops” in an area while moving along its guard tour.

Smoke Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Grain crops farms usually comprise miles of territory that must be looked over. In the summer it might get too hot, to the point of crop catching on fire – a disaster where each second counts. While indoors fire safety measures come down to traditional smoke alarms triggered by high CO2 concentrations, that might not work for outdoors. Luckily, computer vision-powered smoke and fire detection of Xeoma relies on visual signs of a starting fire (smoke and flame) rather than on the smell of it, so it can be used in open air situations like those of a farm.

Visitors Counter in Xeoma video surveillance software The Pick Your Own (PYO) or U-Pick type of farms might be extremely interested in statistics on visitors coming to the farm to harvest fresh produce. Xeoma has several tools to do that – from the simplest to the most precise and sophisticated. The simplest is the Visitors Counter module that lets you draw a virtual line on screen and see how often motion has been detected in it, which can be interpreted as how many guests have crossed in. A more advanced version of this module – the Cross-Line Detector module – adds to that the ability to tell the direction where people are going and filter out false triggering from shadows, animals, etc. For the most precise operation, however, that can tell new and returning customers apart, and avoid counting employees, you are advised to use the unique customers counting feature embedded to Xeoma’s Face Recognition module.

• Drone surveillance is a new technology that is getting up steam in farms nowadays. Such unmanned aircrafts (UAVs, for short) can be used for multiple tasks from trespassing detection to getting intelligence about the whereabouts of cattle or on ripeness of fruit and vegetable produce. However, when in wrong hands, drones can be also be used for evil, against farms as well as against other types of enterprise. With Xeoma’s Drone Detection option in Object Recognizer, the system will be able to detect enemy drones flying by that can scare cattle or carry maleficent cargo or be used for a kamikaze attack. It is powered by AI so it will not react to other types of flying objects, thus ridding you of false alarms.

Video surveillance in farming: Web Server module When you have a video surveillance system installed, why don’t you use it for an additional promotional value? With Xeoma’s Web Server module it’s easy to embed live streams from your cameras into the company’s website acting as a trust gaining tool for investors, as well as an entertainment for site visitors. Live broadcasting capabilities of Xeoma don’t stop here: with the Streaming to YouTube module, Xeoma can push camera streams to your YouTube account effortlessly, beside processing the streams for other security tasks.

Icon for the license plate recognition module in Xeoma video surveillance software Overcome logistics challenges through automation: use Xeoma’s License Plate Recognition to recognize trucks that are allowed to enter by their license plates automatically. No license plates? No Problem! Xeoma can also recognize text (with the Text Recognition module), so it can “read” also numbers that your machinery has on their sides.

Icon for the Freight Unloading Counter module in Xeoma video surveillance software A new module in Xeoma called Freight Unloading Counter might also be of interested in farming: it detects freight vehicles in camera sight and counts the ones that got unloaded, thus calculating their productivity throughout the day.
 

That’s not all! One of Xeoma’s advantages is that it is rapidly developed, which means that ideas on new features are welcome. Current unbelievable advancements of artificial intelligence technologies make almost any routine task easy to automate to eliminate losses and improve this or that aspect of a business, farming included.

Video surveillance for warehouses

A warehouse video surveillance system

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: enhance security in a warehouse and on premises

Video surveillance at a warehouse will help enhance its security to avoid losses from burglary, theft, natural causes of destruction, as well as losses and idling due to accidents.

Video surveillance systems are a way to discourage potential burglars or trespassers, so having cameras in place is in itself a tool for protection against break-ins, a way to prevent crimes.

This is how Motion detector icon looks likeIf the deterring effect of video surveillance wasn’t enough, it can at least detect ongoing trespassing or break-in events and notify the emergency services or management. Use Xeoma’s Motion Detector module for simple intrusion detection based on detection of suspicious movement in selected areas, both indoors and outdoors. Can be combined with Scheduler for reaction in off-hours only. Advanced version of Motion Detector can be set to react not just to any motion, but to the movement caused by people or cars only.

This is how Face Recognition module icon looks like For advanced intrusion detection and/or entry automation, Xeoma’s multifunctional AI-based module “Face recognition” can be used, which is able to detect people in the camera field of view and recognize their face by comparing it to an external database or one created manually. In other words, it’s great for monitoring not only when employees come and go, but also if a stranger is detected. Special pass or block lists, as well as search by a picture of a person are available.

Icon for the license plate recognition moduleAdditionally, Xeoma’s multifunctional AI-based module License plate recognition (also called ANPR or LPR) can be used for vehicle access control that works similarly to the above mentioned Face Recognition – but with cars.
 

Xeoma video surveillance in farming: PTZ Tracking will help to follow a moving object For cameras that support pan, tilt and zoom control commands, PTZ Tracking can be used to automatically “follow” a moving object – which is a much needed tool in regularly vast territories of a warehouse, its premisesm unloading zones, etc. This way one overview camera can be used for long-distance view and zooming in on an area if something suspicious is seen there.

• Speaking of PTZ functionality, Xeoma also supports manual PTZ control as well as working with cameras that allow to make PTZ presets and PTZ guard tours. With this feature, an overview long-distance camera can be positioned to overlook a great part of the territory and rotate and zoom in to pre-set positions according to a patrol tour schedule to see those areas in more details.

Xeoma video surveillance in farming: Surround View The 360° Surround View module in Xeoma will help you create a panoramic view of the site, stitching live streams from several cameras into a sort of a “bird view” to conveniently view the surrounding areas. While the 360° Surround View module is best used with wide angle cameras with the 180° view, a simpler module for images stitching called the Unitor can be used with regular cameras.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: Sound Events Detector Warehouses usually have lots of objects in camera sight that can block out the camera vision. If visual apprehension is obscured, Xeoma’s intellectual Sound Events Detector can be used instead that will react to the sound of breaking glass or a car alarm, which makes it a great tool to detect break-ins in areas that are not exactly viewable.

Thermal Camera Data module in Xeoma video surveillance software Another specific way to detect intrusion when observation is hindered is to use thermal imaging cameras that rely on the temperature of objects. Xeoma’s Thermal Camera Data can work with such cameras allowing you to set to which temperature it should react – whether it is people or animals like rodents.

Smoke Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Contemporary video surveillance solutions like Xeoma also have tools that aid in health and safety regulations compliance. For warehouses that deal with flammable substances there comes the computer vision-powered smoke and fire detection that relies on visual signs of a starting fire (smoke and flame). Such tool can be a great reinforcement to the fire alarm systems in place that also provides the lice view of what triggered the alarm.

Problems Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma offers various system health monitoring tools and logs, including the Problems Detector that can detect sabotage activity or malfunctioning of equipment. Besides, Xeoma has a unique ability to send an alert even in case the server it is running on is no longer responding – for example, due to power outage.

Notifications in Xeoma video surveillance software Various notifications will keep you updated on important events: for example, the Sending Email module that will inform you about emergencies by email and attach pictures or videos. Alternatively, SMS sending, Sound alarm, mobile push notifications, Telegram alerts or other notifications, including custom ones, can be used.

Preview and Archive module in Xeoma video surveillance software And of course there’s Xeoma’s basic Preview and Archive module can capture and process both video and audio streams (sound might be coming from USB and IP microphones or those embedded into cameras) – and store them either locally or to remote disks, RAIDs, or Cloud storage. Video footage can be used for later identification of an intruder, robber, thief, or other wrongdoer, or fight fraudulent claims.

 

Aim 2: automate and improve work productivity

Besides being a great anti-theft measure, smart features of contemporary video surveillance at a warehouse will also help address productivity weaknesses and ultimately enhance work discipline.

Solutions from Xeoma:

• Prevent intrusion by installing a security system and putting “Under surveillance” signs thanks to the deterring effect they have on potential wrongdoers. That works against looters among workers as well. Besides, feeling of safety that video surveillance emits creates a safer, calmer atmosphere that usually has a positive effect on productivity. The above mentioned Preview and Archive module in Xeoma will save forensic-oriented video evidence of improper behavior, false injury claims, theft, damages caused intentionally or by neglect.

This is how Face Recognition module icon looks like Automatic working time tracking tools in Xeoma will help control employee activity. For example, the “Visitors Counter” modules allows you to keep count of employees that enter or leave a building, which in combination with the “Face Recognition” module can be used for tracking of time of clocking in/out. For more precise results, a more advanced “Cross-Line Detector” can be used that adds the ability to tell the direction where people are going.

Loitering Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Loitering Detector can be triggered if someone in camera sight is seen idle standing for too long. In reverse, the “absence of motion” option in Motion Detector help detect and estimate how much time is spent by staff members outside of their work places. Similar to that, the “Detector of Abandoned Objects” module can the absence of something – or someone – that should be there in camera sight, which works for detection of both someone leaving their workplace or a missing – probably stolen – item. “Heatmap” will show the most visited places.

Thermal Camera Data module in Xeoma video surveillance software Working in construction requires concentration and caution. To prevent accidents, you can use Xeoma’s “Thermal Camera Data” module to spot workers who suffer from fever. Besides, AI-powered “Face Detector (Emotions)” can single out workers that are unhappy or in an angry disposition, lest they potentially cause problems.

Detector of Construction Site Safety module in Xeoma video surveillance software Boost workplace safety with the Detector of Construction Site Safety (also called the Safety Gear detector) module that uses artificial intelligence advantages to detect either presence or absence of helmets or work robe (vests) in camera’s sight in construction sites and thus help ensure the compliance with health and safety regulations.

Sound Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Prevention of accidents is essential but timely detection of them can also be a life-saver. “Sound detector” is another helpful module for providing security in the warehouse. It can detect the sound of breaking glass, shooting or screaming. The Slip and Fall Detector is another proactive video analytics tool in Xeoma aimed at quick reaction to accidents (people falling down), which, when used in combination with Xeoma’s instant reactions, helps engage urgent help when it’s most needed.

Remote access: Remote monitoring is an integral part of modern video surveillance. By means of video surveillance application you can check on the warehouse and accept the conducted services/job remotely. Besides, for warehouses that rent out space to end-users remote access to live cameras can be a trust gaining tool, an attraction, a way to stand out from the competition.

Anti-pandemics measures: mask detection, stay time, fever detection, social distancing violation.

• Business boost: detection of queues, VIP guests, remote acceptance, etc.

Custom development: opportunity to use your own detectors powered by neural networks or request paid custom development for you. If you need to detect specific items, patterns, or improve the warehouse’s work in any other way – please contact us for a free quote.

Video surveillance for mining, extraction, production

Gas, oil and coal: video surveillance for mining, extraction, production

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: outdoor security – safety on premises

Video surveillance in enterprises dealing in mining, extraction and production of gas, oil and other resources and minerals usually has tasks to ensure overall safety, reduce losses and spending (including optimization of labor costs), prevent vandalism and espionage, obtain information for analysis and subsequently increase profitability. Below is what Xeoma can offer to reach each of these goals.

Solutions from Xeoma:

• In addition to the traditional use for post-incident investigation, video surveillance systems can actually aid in prevention of criminal activities, which helps cut losses drastically. Having security cameras and warning signs about video surveillance in plain sight is often enough to drive away most of thieves looking for an easy target. Additionally, Xeoma has over 100 features, many of which can be used against trespassing, intrusion, vandalism, theft, and other criminal acts.

This is how Motion detector icon looks like First of all, Xeoma can perform various types of real-time video analytics for timely detection of a suspicious or alarming event. The simplest tool for detection of trespassing is Motion Detector that reacts to movement in selected areas and is perfect for both indoors and perimeter security. If it’s not enough to detect just any motion in the frame, the module can be set to react only to people or vehicles. Moreover, it can be combined with Scheduler for reaction in off-hours only.

Icon for the license plate recognition module For advanced intrusion detection and/or entry automation, Xeoma’s multifunctional AI-based module “Face recognition” can be used, which will make the system able to tell known people (employees, partners, service people) from total strangers. Similarly, the License plate recognition can do the same – but with cars.

Object Recognizer module in Xeoma video surveillance software Another smart module – Object Recognizer – has an option to detect drones, which will help “catch” spying UAVs in sight. Besides, Xeoma’s smart Sound Events Detector can react to the sound of breaking glass or car alarm, while a simpler module – Sound Detector – can be used to detect unusually high volume of sounds. A tool called Relay Switch can invert the logic of reaction and detect only the absence of background sound, which may be a sign of power outage or other sabotage.

Problems Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Speaking of sabotage, Xeoma’s Problems Detector can get triggered when there are issues with cameras or their vision, with system health or some network devices. For systems where it’s important to have 0 down time, the Failover method can be a life-saver.

• The Abandoned Objects Detector module will notify you if any object will be left unattended in camera view, which can be used as a counter-terrorism measure.

Senstar PTZ Tracking module in Xeoma video surveillance software Xeoma can receive external alerts from a perimeter security system (for example, from Flexzone sensors with PTZ Senstar Tracking), or from a camera’s built-in analytics options (with Camera-Embedded Detector). Xeoma has an extensive API and other integration tools, so that it can become a part of an eco system, a complex multi-purpose solution. With free rebranding, it can even bear another name – for example, the name of the overall system in place.

Surround View module in Xeoma video surveillance software The 360° Surround View module in Xeoma will help you create a panoramic view of the site, stitching images from several cameras into a sort of a “bird view”. This will help to see everything around a building ergonomically in just one slot.

Preview and Archive module in Xeoma video surveillance software Get incidents on tape with Preview and Archive that can capture both audio and video streams. Recordings can be used for forensic uses or internal investigation. By default, recordings are stored on the computer that Xeoma is working on, but the system can be re-configured to have them in remote disks, RAIDs, or Cloud storage. Besides, latest versions of Xeoma can import video footage from NVRs and camera SD memory cards. Various backup tools will help make backup copies to not lose important data even if a server malfunctions.

 

Beautiful separation line

Sometimes danger comes from within. in case of production, the main sources of losses are theft and disasters brought by natural causes. Read on to get to know how Xeoma can help.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 2: indoor security – safety during mining

Solutions from Xeoma:

Smoke Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Smoke and fire detection of Xeoma (“Smoke Detector”) relies on what a camera sees so it can complement traditional smoke alarms triggered by CO2 detection. It will help create a better fire alarm system at virtually no additional cost.
 

Face Detector Emotions module in Xeoma video surveillance software Working long shifts away from home can make workers feel depressed to the point they become confrontational or start to act irrationally, which can be extremely dangerous. Timely recognition of staff issues is important in such situations. Luckily, this can be delegated to smart video surveillance solutions. For example, AI-powered “Face Detector (Emotions)” can single out workers that are sad or in an angry disposition and notify someone to take care of them before this builds up. Similarly, if you need the system to be able to detect worrisome patterns in how people act – for example, various kinds of intoxicated behavior – this can be done in course of paid development. It’s also possible to detect specific “dangerous” objects like a gun or a knife. Please contact us for a free quote!

Safety Gear Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software In addition to working on improving workplace discipline video surveillance can also help comply with health and safety regulations: the “Safety Gear Detector” module can see if people in sight are wearing protective helmets, while the Mask Detector in “Face Recognition” can detect if people are wearing face masks or not. More “objects” can be added to that list: gloves, other types of face masks, or other specific uniform clothing, etc.

• Speaking of safety, there can be specific signs of an upcoming danger characteristic to this or that mining, drilling, excavation or production endeavors: spills for marine bases, cracks in underground constructions, unusual vibrations, etc. Xeoma software utilizes various neural networks that can be trained for recognition of these or other signs. Contact us to get a free quote.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 3: increase profits by mining optimization, automation

Solutions from Xeoma:

With artificial intelligence you can train your video surveillance to recognize any objects or patterns to get the exact type of mining statistics or automate quality tracking you need.

Icon for the Freight Unloading Counter module in Xeoma video surveillance software First of all, in mineral mining, a new module in Xeoma called the Freight Unloading Counter detects freight vehicles in camera sight and counts the ones that got unloaded, thus calculating their productivity throughout the day. Statistics can be saved a .csv report, or shown on screen with the “Marking” module.

Color Recognition in Xeoma video surveillance software Then, it is possible to evaluate quality of extracted resources, for timely detection of when re-orientation is due. For example, Xeoma’s Color Recognition can track if the resources extracted are of the right color. Does the mill work too fast or too slow, not having enough time to process the raw materials efficiently? The Object Size Filtering module in Xeoma is trained to detect the needed size, so it can either simply inspect the chunks of raw material, or better yet be used in combination with a reaction module to automatically set the grinding power before melting. If there is another sign characteristic to the good/bad distinction in your type of mining, our team of professionals can train the system to look for it, too! If you want to have a custom feature developed for you, please contact us for a quote.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: My Detector Besides, you can use your cameras’ built-in detectors (with Camera-Embedded Detector) or add your own smart detector to Xeoma with the “My Detector” matrix module. Xeoma use external sensors or devices too – it has numerous integration tools and modules (for example, the Modbus Controllers, HTTP Switcher or GPIO modules, as well as extensive API). See more on integration in the IoT section

If you want to have some kind of video analytics added to Xeoma, please contact us for a free quote.

Visitors Counter in Xeoma video surveillance software Work productivity and discipline tracking: Automatic working time tracking tools in Xeoma will help control employee activity. For example, the “Visitors Counter” modules allows you to keep count of employees that enter or leave a building, which in combination with the “Face Recognition” module can be used for tracking of time of clocking in/out. For more precise results, a more advanced “Cross-Line Detector” can be used that adds the ability to tell the direction where people are going.

Loitering Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Loitering Detector can be triggered if someone in camera sight is seen idle standing for too long. In reverse, the “absence of motion” option in Motion Detector help detect and estimate how much time is spent by staff members outside of their work places. Similar to that, the “Detector of Abandoned Objects” module can the absence of something – or someone – that should be there in camera sight, which works for detection of both someone leaving their workplace or a missing – probably stolen – item. “Heatmap” will show the most visited places.

This is how Face Recognition module icon looks like The Face Recognition and License Plate Recognition modules that we already scrutinized before can be successfully used for entry automation. “Face recognition” can detect people, find their face and compare it to a “pass list” of employees, and work in tandem with automated gate barriers, turnstiles (thanks to raction modules like HTTP Request Sender or Application Runner, GPIO or JSON commands), when staff are coming or leaving the building. The License plate recognition can be used for vehicle access control with cars’ pass lists. For advanced two-step authentication use FaceID in combination with smart card reading or QR code reading.

• Like in any large video surveillance installation, video surveillance for mining, drilling and other types of production facilities has various utility tools to make view of dozens of cameras more convenient and less tiresome. First of all, it’s the adjustable camera layouts (grids), with support for multiple monitors, pop-ups of alerted cameras and various on-screen information, configurable window transparency and fonts and the option to set up automatic switching between cameras. Loop recording with instant replay of the most recent event and Marking (camera overlay) for embedding time and date, custom text, GPS coordinates, or image stamp over camera’s stream are some of very popular features helping security officers have everything they need. Management of numerous cameras is easier with Xeoma’s Device list or multilayered eMap. And besides manual PTZ control, Xeoma offers automatic object tracking with zoom.

All in all, whatever weaknesses, challenges, analysis or automation goals your mining business may have, contemporary video surveillance solutions like Xeoma can help!

Video surveillance for child safety

Child safety with Xeoma video surveillance

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1: child safety at home

Solutions from Xeoma:

Xeoma is the multi-purpose software for working with cameras that can be used in hundreds of different ways to achieve various goals, flexibly. Here’s what it can do when it’s about safety of a baby, toddler or a teenager at home:

Baby monitor: Xeoma can be the heart of your DIY-built baby monitor that has several advantages over regular ready-made devices. First of all, Xeoma can work entirely without access to the external Internet network, so you can rest assured that it doesn’t have security issues and doesn’t transmit such sensitive footage to the outside. Secondly, you can make it as easy as you want, with equipment that you already have, saving you money that you would otherwise spend on features you don’t really need. And in reverse, you could make the Xeoma-powered baby monitor as sophisticated as you want, adding more than one cameras, notifications that you know will work for you, or even some advanced video analytics. For example, besides 24/7 remote view of cameras in the baby’s room with sound, Xeoma’s smart Sound events detector will only notify you when it hears the sound of baby cry (while ignoring other sounds like the melody from a pacifier toy), sending you a notification that you will actually notice.

Nanny cam: trusting your child to a relative or a hired nanny can be hard. That’s when remote access that video surveillance systems offer comes to the rescue: parents can peek into cameras at any time to see how things are going and check on the baby in a matter of seconds. But that’s not all: there are over 100 features in Xeoma that can be re-purposed for nanny cam proactive monitoring, where you don’t need to wait until the end of the day to review recordings and find out something wrong that already happened. For example, “Face Recognition” and “Crowd Detector” modules are both able to count the number of people in an area and trigger if there are more people in a camera’s field of vision than expected, which could mean that the nanny is having guests while you’re out.

Besides, Face Recognition can also detect if there is a stranger in camera sight, someone who is not your nanny or your baby, and notify you using a reaction module of your choice immediately. If the nanny is not expected to go to some rooms of your house, you can put cameras there and set up Xeoma’s smart Motion Detector to monitor for motion. If it’s not enough to detect just any motion in the frame, the advanced version of this module can be set to react only to people, thus ignoring changes of lighting, shadows or animals there. Similarly, with the Cross-line detector, the system can launch a reaction if either your child or the nanny are about to enter an unsafe or unwanted area.

As part of the parental control over the kid’s computer and Internet activity, Xeoma’s Screen Capture module can capture what is going on the computer. Besides, Xeoma has a hidden mode to not make users aware of its presence in your computer. When combined with smart modules like Text Recognition, the system can spot prohibited words or phrases that your child gets in social media or is trying to input in a web browser, and launch your selected reaction. This is one of the ways to make sure they are safe from online violence.

Smoke Detector module in Xeoma video surveillance software Computer vision-powered smoke and fire detection of Xeoma with the “Smoke Detector” module can be an addition to traditional smoke alarms triggered by CO2 sensors; however unlike offline systems it can also procure visual evidence of the suspicious situation for review before the alarm is triggered.

• With the Slip and Fall detector you can find out if your child has fallen while walking in the yard or at home and needs help.

• Xeoma’s AI-powered “Face Detector (Emotions)” (also known as the Emotions Detector) can recognize 7 basic human emotions (happiness, surprise, neutrality, anger, disgust, fear and sadness) so it can let you know if it sees that your baby is sad or afraid.

Preview and Archive module in Xeoma video surveillance software And of course there’s Xeoma’s basic Preview and Archive module can capture and process both video and audio streams (sound might be coming from USB and IP microphones or those embedded into cameras) – and store them either locally or to remote disks, RAIDs, or Cloud storage. Thanks to various optimizations, hours worth of recordings made with Xeoma can be reviewed quickly.

There are various ways for remote access in Xeoma, made easy with our own totally free P2P channel. Remote view can be done from Xeoma’s desktop programs, mobile apps, or even web browsers. Separate accounts can be created for family members.

Aim 2: child safety outside

Solutions from Xeoma:

This is how Motion detector icon looks like Home safety facilitated by video surveillance starts with detection of intrusion, trespassing or break-ins. The simplest tool for intrusion detection is the above mentioned Motion Detector that can react to suspicious movement in selected areas and is perfect for both indoors and outdoors security. Advanced anti-false-alarm logic helps set the system to react only to people or vehicles in the frame, ignoring changes of weather, lighting or animals-caused motion.

Icon for the license plate recognition module For advanced intrusion detection, Xeoma’s multifunctional AI-based module “Face recognition” can be used, which will make the system able to tell known people (family members, neighbors, nanny) from total strangers. Similarly, the License plate recognition can do the same – but with cars.

Object Recognizer module in Xeoma video surveillance software Another smart module – Object Recognizer – has an option to detect drones, which will help “catch” spying UAVs in sight. Besides, Xeoma’s smart Sound Events Detector can react to the sound of breaking glass or car alarm, while a simpler module – Sound Detector – can be used to detect unusually high volume of sounds.

Loitering Detector in Xeoma video surveillance software Loitering Detector can be triggered if someone in camera sight is seen idle standing for too long. In combination with the Cross-Line Detector it might help catch someone who’s stepped from the driveway to go around the house for some reason.

Stop the incident from unfolding any further with automated alarms (for example, with Sound Alarm), turning on the lights, or dispatching a notification to security personnel. Custom reactions are also available.

With contemporary video surveillance solutions like Xeoma it has become possible to have video cameras on board of school buses and take advantage of live streams as well as recordings. More on that read in section “Aim 3: on-board video surveillance” of the “Video surveillance for vehicles, cars, parking” section

Aim 3: kid surveillance in various businesses focused on children

YouTube streaming module in Xeoma video surveillance software Give parents the reason to choose your establishment over the competition with live broadcasts. Live broadcasts embedded to your web site or Youtube account will show everyday “behind the scenes” processes and sanitary conditions of your place, helping to debunk any stereotypes or fears parents may have about abuse. With Xeoma’s Web Server and Streaming to Youtube modules companies can broadcast video cameras online on their website or into a social network. Besides, with the “Marking” module a custom text, GPS data or a watermark can be applied to camera streams that Xeoma processes.

• A more secure way to demonstrate a kid’s place routine operations is to allow parents to connect to the video surveillance system and view cameras online. There are various ways for remote access in Xeoma, made easy with our own totally free P2P channel. Remote view can be done from Xeoma’s desktop programs, mobile apps, or even web browsers. Independent accounts can be created for staff and parents so that it’s impossible for them to break the system even if they are not technologically adavanced.

Preview and Archive module in Xeoma video surveillance software Having video footage often aids in immediate resolution of conflict situations with video footage being an undeniable incorruptible truth-teller of any event. Get incidents on tape with Preview and Archive that can capture both audio and video streams. By default, recordings are stored on the computer that Xeoma is working on, but the system can be re-configured to have them in remote disks, RAIDs, or Cloud storage.

Face Detector Emotions module in Xeoma video surveillance software Keeping up with the image of violence-free safe space for kids is a lot of work. Luckily, Xeoma VMS is more than just a security tool – it’s also a helper of effective managers. Xeoma’s AI-powered “Face Detector (Emotions)” (also known as the Emotions Detector) can recognize 7 basic human emotions (happiness, surprise, neutrality, anger, disgust, fear and sadness) so it can be used to analyze the emotional state of children and caregivers in a group. It can let you know if it sees workers in bad disposition – or distressed children – so that you can investigate and take due measures.

This is how Motion detector icon looks like Apart from 24/7 live monitoring, Xeoma can detect if there is movement during off hours (with Motion Detector in combination with Scheduler), alert your security service (with various notification modules), launch reactions. Tip: Motion Detector can be set to react not just to any motion, but to the movement caused by people or cars only.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: Sound Events Detector There are more sophisticated tools to detect intrusion, trespassing, break-ins in Xeoma: the “Sound Events Detector” relies on recognizing the sound type rather than on seeing something suspicious and can tell the sound of breaking glass from background noise. Loitering Detector will spot if someone’s hanging around a “sensitive” area for longer than they should. Face Recognition can recognize people in camera sight by their faces and only alert you if there are strangers there.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: ANPR, the Number Plate Recognition module Similarly, the License Plate Recognition module can do the same with vehicles (recognize any unknown numbers, or numbers from block/pass lists). If Motion Detector“s recognition of people or vehicles is not accurate enough in your case, an AI-powered Object Recognizer can be used that can also distinguish these two types of objects but better thanks to its advanced algorithms (moreover, it can detect many other object types). For cameras that support pan, tilt and zoom control commands, PTZ Tracking can be used to automatically “follow” a moving object. “Problems Detector” will let you know if a camera is being tampered with.

Video surveillance for offices with Xeoma: Emotion Detector Xeoma’s Additional module “Emotion Recognition” , based on artificial intelligence and neural networks, recognizes the emotions of customers and employees, helping to respond to unusual situations in time, thereby improving the quality of service.

This is how Face Recognition module icon looks like Automation of access control: “Face recognition” can detect people, find their face and compare it to a “pass list” of employees or parents that are allowed in, and work in tandem with automated gate barriers, turnstiles (thanks to raction modules like HTTP Request Sender or Application Runner, GPIO or JSON commands), when authorized people are detected at the gate. The License plate recognition can be used for vehicle access control with cars’ pass lists.

FaceID module in Xeoma video surveillance software In addition to automated access control based on recognizing employees’ or parents’ faces or vehicle license plate numbers, stricter double authentication (modules FaceID in combination with Smart Card Reading or QR Code Recognition) is available which relies not just on recognition of a person’s face, but also compares it to their smart access card. This is a great tool for automated entry on campus for students who have passes.

Video can help in extra curricular classes as well. For example, in sports clubs contemporary VMS Xeoma can do everything listed above plus there is a technologically advanced module called “Sports Tracking” designed for automatic detection of a sports ball or players in camera’s field of view, and automatic tracking – rotation of the camera to always follow the object. In short, this module will help automate sports broadcasts, rotating a camera to always keep what’s most interesting in focus. If the employees working with children are required to wear certain type of uniform, smart components of Xeoma ca be trained to observer their presence in the frame, like we already have in “Safety Gear Detector” that can see if people in sight are wearing protective helmets, and Mask Detector in “Face Recognition” that can detect if people are wearing face masks or not. More “objects” can be added to that list at your request, so if you need to detect specific items, patterns, or improve operations of your the kids-centered business in any other way – please contact us for a free quote!

Eye Tracking in Xeoma video surveillance software Speaking of mind-blowing innovationd, live Eye Tracking can follow the movement of a human eye’s pupil and thus gather information on where the gaze of the visitors of the place of business is directed. This data can be used in scientific work focused on learning more about children’s behaviour, in children’s phychology assessment, etc.

Video surveillance for security operators

Video surveillance tools for security operators

Beautiful pointer image Aim 1 of video surveillance for CCTV operator: to make live observation of large amounts of cameras easier for surveillance officers

Solutions from Xeoma:

• In the “Layouts” menu you can divide cameras into groups and set up automatic scrolling to view cameras one by one or by groups. Watch video about Layouts

Support for multiple monitors and video walls. Divide cameras into groups in Layouts menu. Run several Xeoma Clients. Log in with the operator’s user profile password. In each Client select to show different groups of cameras. Drag Clients to separate monitors. Each monitor will show a certain group of cameras.

• Simply drag-and-drop of cameras to the “right” place to change their order on the Multi-Cameras View screen. If the specific option for that is enabled in Users dialog, each operator can have their personal order of cameras, layouts and other view preferences.

• Use eMap (interactive map of the surveillance object) and Device List (list of cameras divided into groups with quick jump to the needed camera) to manage large quantities of cameras.

• Change font size of various inscriptions in Xeoma interface: cameras’ names, error notifications with the “Window Settings” menu.

Xeoma: video surveillance at a construction site Aim 2 of video surveillance for CCTV operator: to help surveillance officers not miss what’s important despite natural challenges like distraction, fatigue and loss of concentration in proportion to time and amount of cameras to monitor.

Solutions from Xeoma:

User profiles with ability to restrict/allow access to certain cameras, archives and functions, hiding all redundant ones. Create specific user profile and let the CCTV operator know his/her password to connect to Xeoma server.

• Use free rebranding utility to customize Xeoma interface, getting rid of all menus and options that security operators will not need in your scenario.

Visualization of motion: this feature will display green dots for motion events detected with Motion Detector, visualizing its path. Visualization is available for live view and recordings viewed in Xeoma’s built-in archive player. For motion events detected with the Object Detector, green dots are transformed into arrows showing also direction of movement.

Show active cameras: Since Xeoma supports multi-monitor configuration, it might be a great idea to assign one of monitors to only show cameras with an active alert, while still having all cameras in other monitors of the video wall. Xeoma’s Show active cameras function is exactly for that: it shows only triggered cameras.

Enlarge triggered camera: This function is another variation of the previously mentioned ‘Show only active cameras’. Go to Layouts -> Larger grid -> Form by detectors to make Xeoma automatically put a camera that detected motion into bigger slot thus calling for CCTV operator’s attention.

Show red cross option in Layouts will indicate when a camera froze with a big cross over its image. It’s especially useful when large amount of cameras are monitored and camera preview boxes are thus too small to tell instantly if a camera is no longer working (probably, tampered with).

• In addition to live view of cameras available in any Xeoma editions, professional edition of Xeoma makes it possible for operators to view recordings from several cameras simultaneously as well, which helps investigate an event from all angles.

• Xeoma has various tools to alert authorized personnel on an event. For example, Mobile notifications is a great way to have operators receive push notifications on their iPhone or Android smart phone, with a quick jump to the event itself. Other notifications include Sending Email module that will inform you about emergencies by email and attach pictures or videos, SMS sending, Sound alarm, Telegram alerts and other reactions, including custom ones.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 3 of video surveillance for CCTV operator: to provide surveillance officers with tools to control cameras for more efficient monitoring

Solutions from Xeoma:

• Xeoma VMS has various tools for operators to control cameras. Besides the special module PTZ Tracking that can “follow” a moving object across the territory automatically, at your disposal are various manual zoom opportunities. First of all, digital zoom wll allow to enlarge a selected area both in live view and in archive viewer. Cameras that have support for physical pan, tilt and zoom can be controlled in Xeoma with a convenient on-screen control for camera rotation and zoom, either in desktop software, mobile app or in a browser. Xeoma supports third-party PTZ control boards and joysticks too, where actions can be assigned to various keys. For cameras that support PTZ presets, Xeoma offers to create and use patrolling according to automatic PTZ guard tours.

• Xeoma’s Button Switcher allows for quick turning on/off of the modules in the chain connected after this module with the help of the button in the lower panel or an option in Main menu. A security operator can click it whenever it is required to urgently start or stop face recognition and recording.

• Upon seeing something suspicious, an operator can make a screenshot of camera image in 1 click both in its live view or from the Archive Player interface, and save it or send it via email.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 4 of video surveillance for CCTV operator: to give surveillance officers a way for quick review of events

Solutions from Xeoma:

• Xeoma’s built-in player of recordings it has made has multiple tools for security operators to quickly review hours worth of recordings.

• First of all, there’s the quick jump from the camera live view interface into Xeoma’s embedded archive viewer – either click on the Play button in the lower panel, or the red Rec sign in the top right corner of a camera preview.

• Once in the recordings player, the calendar feature can be clicked to select the date and time for a quick jump to a recording made at that time.

• Various timelapse options help to review recordings quickly.

• Besides, if you hover the cursor over the timeline, it will bring up small thumbnails (mini preview pictures) of some key frames within those episodes. The Start position option allows to set what part the archive will be opened at when you enter it next time.

Search through archive recordings will help save time by reviewing only the episodes where the sought for object or person has been found.

• Episodes can be downloaded from the archive for forensic uses or for use in other programs with the Export feature.

Beautiful pointer image Aim 5 of video surveillance for CCTV operator: to engage video surveillance’s smart analytics to assist in event detection

Solutions from Xeoma:

Security operators are human beings prone to distractions, fatigue, and loss of attention over time during a long shift, especially when required to monitor dozens of cameras at a time. Thus it is very much desirable that a video surveillance system helps security operators to not miss what’s important. Along with various optimizations of the monitoring process, contemporary VMS solutions have smart modules that are analyzing what is actually happening in front of the cameras on the fly, thus unloading security officers a little bit.

Here are a couple of such modules:

Xeoma’s Detector of Abandoned Objects will notify the operator if any object will be left unattended in camera view.

The Loitering Detector detects if someone (or something) has been in a suspicious proximity to the guarded territory for a certain period of time.

Motion Detector is the simplest tool for intrusion detection that can react to suspicious movement in selected areas, both indoors and outdoors.

Smoke Detector uses computer vision to recognize early signs of a fire (a visible smoke) or an active flame.

Sound Detector can be used to detect unusually high-volume sounds. Its “big brother” – the AI-powered Sound Events Detector can also detect what the sound is and react to the sound of breaking glass, car alarm, cries or gunshots.

Problems Detector (also known as the Sabotage Detector) can get triggered when there are issues with cameras or their vision, with system health or some network devices.

To make it even easier, Xeoma’s Object Size Filtering is trained to detect only object of the needed size, ridding operators of the need to get distracted by irrelevant objects judging by their size.

Xeoma has many more video analytics modules that help automate business operations, directly or indirectly helping security operators do their job.

Beautiful separation line

Beautiful pointer image Aim 6 of video surveillance for CCTV operator: to enable CCTV operator to work with other tasks while monitoring

Solutions from Xeoma:

Transparency (Layouts menu -> Window settings): make Xeoma window half-transparent to allow operator do other work and still be in tune with what is going on (for Windows).

Pop-up Window module will un-minimize Xeoma window when triggered (for example, when motion is detected). At other times, Xeoma window can be minimized and you will still not miss what’s important.

 

Many more of Xeoma’s 100+ features can be used in kid video surveillance thanks to their flexibility. See all features of Xeoma here to find the one you’re looking for!
