Owners and managers of video monitoring centers have generally fared well during the COVID-19 pandemic, with nearly half increasing business according to a recent international survey conducted by Calipsa. The Calipsa Video Monitoring Report 2020 found 47% of respondents said the pandemic had stimulated business growth, providing an average 33% increase in clients and a 30% boost in revenue. More than a third (37%) of businesses reported no change in performance.
Calipsa announced that its false alarm filtering platform is being used by Richmond, British Columbia-based Radius Security. Radius Security is the security systems and monitoring branch of Vancouver Fire and Security and the first Canadian monitoring center to adopt the cloud-based Calipsa technology. Calipsa’s false alarm reduction technology uses artificial intelligence with deep learning technology to filter out false alarms with a 99.5% accuracy rate.
Calipsa and Immix are bringing their proven AI Video Alarm Verification solution to central alarm monitoring stations in the Americas. The news follows the successful launch of the solution, known as AI Link, in Europe, Middle East and Africa and the Asia Paific region (APAC) in May this year. The integration, which will be available starting Sept. 1, will allow Immix customers to add Calipsa’s False Alarm Filtering technology to their cameras directly via the AI Link feature in Immix Central Station and Guard Force.
