Sensity Systems Inc. and Genetec Inc. to Offer Advanced IoT Public Safety and Security Solution

Sensity Systems Inc. and Genetec Inc. announced that the two companies will offer an advanced IoT public safety and security solution. The IoT smart city security solution incorporates Sensity Video Nodes, integrated with LED lights, communicating over Wi-Fi to the Genetec Security Center video management system (VMS) with intelligent analytics enabled on the Sensity Video Node. In addition to analytics, the Video Node can record high resolution and low-resolution streams from each of its two cameras and maintain the storage at the edge—leveraging the Genetec Edge Protocol—to be retrieved as needed. Kansas City is deploying 250 Sensity NetSense cameras, connecting to a Genetec Omnicast VMS, to monitor a new streetcar line in the city’s downtown area. The IoT video security system, including the cameras, is being deployed at a fraction of the cost of a traditional wired video security system. In addition, Kansas City did not have to purchase additional on-premises storage equipment to run its new security system, because the Sensity IoT platform stores video data on devices located at the network edge.

Sensity Systems Inc. announced that Simon Property Group is expanding its NetSense Light Sensory Network deployments to multiple retail properties across the United States.

Smart parking, public safety and other operational applications will be implemented in the future to help the mall operator reach their strategic business goals and deliver superior shopping experiences at their properties nationwide. The NetSense Light Sensory Network is a new, networking platform that capitalizes on the widespread move toward LED lighting for outdoor uses. Transforming LED light fixtures into sensor-equipped, smart devices capable of capturing and transmitting data in real time, Sensity provides retail customers with an opportunity to deliver a broad array of applications and services, such as: Real-time parking availability information. A hassle-free parking experience improves the overall shopper experience at a brick-and-mortar store. NetSense helps shoppers by providing real-time parking availability information throughout the parking lots and garages of a retail property. Increased public safety and security: With video-based security and real-time video analytics, NetSense offers not only a cost-effective solution to increase the safety of shopping patrons, but also pro-active information with which to respond to incidents. For example, video analytics capabilities include the detection of loitering, entering forbidden areas and other potential public safety events. Operational efficiencies (lighting control and traffic monitoring): NetSense enables real-time control, management, and maintenance support for all lighting fixtures (all outdoor, large indoor) across a mall property. Features include activity-based dimming, daylight harvesting, fault detection, and verification of energy savings. In addition, applications under development include snow-level detection, parking resurfacing monitoring and vehicle traffic analytics. These applications will help mall operators deploy and adjust resources in an optimal way based on real-time input.
