In a facility or city where there are many surveillance cameras, it is not possible, nor desirable, to watch all the video. There are too many cameras. And most of the time, most of the cameras are not pointed at anything interesting. So surveillance video is normally recorded, not watched. Archived video footage is used for "post-mortem forensics", to figure out what happened after a security incident is over.
ELERTS software system allows people with smartphones to act as sensors for trouble. Human intuition, coupled with an ELERTS app on their phone, allows people to quickly submit a security concern to police or an organization's Security team.
As an in-the-cloud solution, "ELERTS Attention Engine for CCTV" determines which cameras have a view of a crime or suspicious activity, in real-time, as the incident is occurring. Live footage of a security incident is displayed, by integrating with the VMS or PSIM in the Security Control room.
Security teams can only stop crimes they know about.
Stopping crime > recording crime.
