Sensity Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Genetec and Sensity Systems Inc. to Develop Security Solutions on the NetSense Platform

At the ASIS International Conference, Genetec and Sensity Systems Inc. announced a strategic alliance to develop security-focused solutions and applications for municipalities, retail and more, built on Sensity’s NetSense platform. As part of the agreement, Sensity has completed interoperability certification for its Video Node with the Genetec Omnicast video management system (VMS) and announced that Genetec has joined the NetSense Partner Program to offer additional security applications in the future for light sensory networks worldwide. Omnicast is an Internet Protocol (IP)-based VMS that is part of the Genetec unified Security Center security platform. Omnicast provides organizations of all sizes with the ability to deploy a surveillance system that truly matches their security needs. It supports a wide range of networked cameras, encoders and CCTV equipment, and is able to scale to support up to 150,000 cameras. Its flexible and open architecture enables municipalities and other organizations to adapt to the evolving demands of their security departments. Using light sensory networks to improve security and preserve privacy: integrating security devices and software applications with the NetSense platform allows companies to leverage an LED lighting conversion project—which pays for itself through lower energy and lighting maintenance costs to deploy networked security systems that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive due to the additional construction costs associated with bringing power and networking infrastructure to the video cameras. For example, Sensity video nodes or third-party surveillance cameras can be installed as part of an LSN project and integrated into a network of NetSense-enabled LED lights, streaming back to the Genetec Omnicast video management system. Analytics enabled at the network edge (i.e., within the Sensity nodes integrated with the LED luminaires) provide security staff with real-time situational awareness, so they can quickly detect, investigate, prevent and stop suspicious or threatening activities. These networked systems can provide real-time alerts about unauthorized activity or movement in a parking garage, at a facility perimeter, or at entry/exit points. Integration of security cameras with lights can be set to trigger specific actions—such as strobing the lights or sending alerts to security or police officers—to prevent or respond to security incidents. Sensity’s security solution is designed to minimize the amount of data transported back to a central location for human monitoring. Sensity’s edge based storage and analytics in conjunction with Genetec Omnicast enable real time security alerts, video and image clipping, transmission and storage, thereby minimizing the amount of sensitive information in the system. By maintaining sensitive video data at the edge, Sensity will further safeguard citizen’s privacy.

Sensity Systems Announces New NetSense Core Node EX

Sensity Systems announced its new NetSense Core Node EX. The Core Node EX provides greater integration flexibility, with a smaller, sleeker hardware form-factor and support for an external NEMA receptacle connector (ANSI 136.41) to simplify deployment of NetSense nodes with LED roadway light fixtures. In addition, the integrated NEMA connector allows existing LED deployments to quickly and easily be retrofitted with the Core Node technology – creating a single, pervasive Light Sensory Network out of existing and new LED fixtures. The new Core Node EX is ideal for lighting manufacturers that are interested in providing both lighting control and advanced applications and services, such as public safety and security, smart parking, traffic, and more on their existing luminaires without developing new software or hardware. The new Core Node EX provides advanced lighting control capabilities and also collects sensor information, such as ambient light, motion detection, temperature, and power monitoring. Tapping into its technology expertise, process integration know-how, and strong partnerships, Sensity designed the new core node to be low-cost, lightweight, and adaptable to be deployed alongside any third-party lighting fixture via a NEMA socket. As a result, NetSense Lighting Manufacturer Partners can quickly respond to, participate in, and meet the requirements of Smart City projects. The Core Node EX’s newest functionality includes: Mounted externally using a 7-Pin NEMA receptacle connector (ANSI 136.41) to control LED luminaires. Built-in power to support the NetSense Video Node and other auxiliary devices, such as networking equipment. Built-in communications bus to allow the Core Node to collect and transmit meta-data from attached auxiliary devices and additional sensors. Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled for rapid and error-free commissioning and ongoing asset management. Utility Grade Metering for energy savings and verification.

Acuity Brands, Inc. Partners with Sensity Systems to Deliver Transformational LED Solutions

Acuity Brands, Inc. announced a strategic partnership with Sensity Systems. Acuity Brands and Sensity plan to create a joint solution that further transforms energy-efficient LED lighting into a smart, connected platform for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As a Sensity NetSense Partner, Acuity Brands further expands its smart outdoor lighting solutions capabilities by adding the ability to capture and transmit data near real-time, providing actionable insight and enabling a broad array of applications and services. Acuity Brands and Sensity expect that their joint solution will advance the goals of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Presidential Challenge for Advanced Outdoor Lighting.
