A Look At The Numbers
A recent study by SecurEnvoy found that 86% of false alarms result from human error, which can be costly for central station monitoring companies.
Addressing An Industry Problem
With a 95% false alarm reduction rate, Calipsa’s surveillance camera analytics software employs deep learning technologies to filter out false alarms brought on by anything from a change in lighting to a spider’s web across a lens.
False alarms are a significant problem for the video and alarm monitoring industry, especially at properties with many sensors. Various factors, including system malfunctions, can cause false alarms, but most result from human error.
What is the cost associated with false alarms? It depends on the type of notification, required response, and resource redirection to deal with the alarm. For example, when an alarm goes off, the central station monitoring must stop what they’re doing, investigate it, and notify onsite personnel or law enforcement – even if it turns out to be nothing.
MATRIX INTERACTIVE’s open platform provides video monitoring, alarm monitoring, and event management solutions allowing video-based alarm verification that enables central stations to verify alarm notifications without having to dispatch individuals to investigate an alarm.
Once the alarm is verified, the central station monitor can notify the customer and dispatch security personnel, police, or the fire department more efficiently due to Calipsa’s advanced false alarm mitigation analytics.
