The New DICE Adds Calipsa’s False Alarm Filtering Solution to Matrix Interactive

The New #DICE Adds #Calipsa’s False Alarm Filtering Solution to Matrix Interactive | #TpromoCom #FalseAlarm #Monitoring #MatrixInteractive | DICE is pleased to announce Calipsa’s false alarm filtering solution is now integrated with Matrix Interactive. https://bit.ly/3ck7dXq


While the two companies both offer video analytics, the integration provides central stations and integrators that are already using Calipsa’s solution with the option to add advanced interactive and video services from Matrix Interactive. It will also allow DICE users to benefit from Calipsa’s leading AI technology.


With an open and generic platform developed by the New DICE, the integration works with any monitoring automation software and is an opportunity to add value for monitoring stations or command centers in a corporate, education or healthcare venue.


Calipsa’s analytics software for video surveillance uses deep learning algorithms to filter out false alarms caused by anything from a change in lighting to a spider’s web across a lens, with a false alarm reduction rate of 95%.

Matrix Interactive offers central stations and command centers a video event monitoring, surveillance, and alarm notification suite for any video system that is accessible from any location, at any time. The unified platform provides services such as video verification, remote guarding, virtual guard tours, and virtual doorman – all using advanced video analytics, artificial intelligence, and cloud recording of events.


With an overabundance of cameras and recorded video, the security industry is seeing a greater rise in video monitoring. By integrating Matrix Interactive with Calipsa, monitoring stations and command centers will now have the opportunity to add new levels of security into their monitoring operations.


For instance, with Matrix Interactive’s verified automated scheduled video tours, the platform analyzes, understands, and prioritizes the video stream in real time. If nothing is detected during the tour, there is no need for operator intervention. The priority level determines if the video is sent to an end user, a central station operator, and/or is recorded.


The Matrix platform also offers a unique new multi-camera video quick search feature that can instantly search through multiple cameras for an event rather than camera by camera.

Central stations and command centers can begin with an entry-level package at a minimal investment that provides fast ROI, and then add more cameras, services, and modules when ready.


"The New DICE is a fantastic partner and integrating Calipsa’s analytics into the Matrix platform offers us great potential in all the markets we serve,” said Brian Baker, Chief Revenue Officer at Calipsa. “Matrix Interactive will allow Calipsa users to not only benefit from our 95% false alarm reduction but will also add its own additional features to further enhance security standards. This partnership is a significant step in defining our footprint in the central station and command center market.” 


“DICE is continuing to partner and integrate with the top industry solutions, and we are proud to partner with Calipsa,” said The New DICE Corporation Co-President Avi Lupo. “We spoke with many Calipsa customers who are very happy with Calipsa but were looking for a seamless integration with Matrix Interactive to take advantage of its advanced video features and services, in addition to the Calipsa analytics.”

National Monitoring Center Celebrates 20-Year Anniversary Evolution and Growth are Built Around Putting Customers First | #TpromoCom #NMC #Celebration #Monitoring | National Monitoring Center, the nation’s premier 3rd party monitoring center, proudly announces the 20th anniversary of the company’s founding. https://bit.ly/3uDVSIk

In those years, NMC has evolved from a single 10,000 square foot facility to two fully redundant leading-edge monitoring centers located in California and Texas.

 

“We are thrilled and honored to have reached this milestone,” said Woodie Andrawos, President, National Monitoring Center. “Our longevity in the monitoring business is testimony to our continuing investments in technology, personnel and relationship-building. Our customers have always been our first priority, and this objective has informed every step we have taken as an organization.”

 

NMC was founded in June 2001, shortly before the events of 9/11 changed the country and the security industry forever. Beginning in January 2002 with their first 150 accounts operating out of California, the company continued to grow rapidly over the next several years. 2007 marked one of many significant milestones, when NMC built a second central station in Texas mirroring the California facility and allowing for full redundancy and geodiversity to better serve their customers.

 

Over the next several years NMC continued to update and evolve their facilities and offerings, building a new center in California in 2013 to house monitoring, support and education operations. In 2018, the company merged with Netwatch, opening up new business opportunities and bringing a vital new offering, Proactive Video Monitoring, to their customers.

 

In 2021, with the business having grown to hundreds of thousands of accounts, NMC continues to lead the industry in delivering monitoring services that proactively protect users while supporting business development objectives for dealers.

 

“This continues to be an exciting industry, with fast-moving technology that helps people and organizations maintain a lower risk profile,” said Andrawos. “We’re looking forward to our next 20 years.”

Verdafero Simplifies Environmental Monitoring

Verdafero Simplifies Environmental Monitoring | #Verdafero #Utilities #IoT #Integrators | The need for real-time monitoring of environmental elements--such as water  level, temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, and others--is fundamental in a variety of applications. This includes industrial manufacturing, water control, energy conservation, museums involving delicate objects of antiquity, and many more.

Verdafero offers the means whereby System Integrators can easily monitor any number of conditions through IoT (Internet of Things) devices that collectively connect to one or more Dataloggers. The Datalogger, in turn, sends detailed time-sensitive data from each device to Verdafero's  Cloud-based analytical SaaS for careful monitoring. 

In short, what happens is Verdafero's processing center, using machine-learning, establishes what is "normal" so when something goes awry, the high-level, high-speed processing computers know about it. An alert is then sent to a security integrator's Central Monitoring Station (CMS) who in turn will act according to a predetermined menu of priorities, much as they already do for commercial clients with respect to video verification and general burglar and access control functions. 

Utility Monitoring

Another benefit of Verdafero's IoT Cloud-based SaaS is the ability to track energy usage on a Client's monthly basis, even real-time if needed. 

For example, using Verdafero, management of the Hilton Concord, a hotel located in the suburban community of Concord in the East Bay of San Francisco,  now has the ability to track, analyze and report on all of the hotel’s overhead utility expenses at the touch of a button. 

"Analyzing large amounts of electric, gas, water, waste data and Carbon Footprint for a large hospitality property on a monthly basis can be very challenging. Individual utilities have inconsistent billing periods and operate on varying billing cycles further complicating the reporting process. Add into the equation different utility providers supplying the same resource, it becomes an even greater challenge" (https://bit.ly/33bP88Q). 

Another example is the need to monitor the quality and quantity of electrical energy that feeds a  high-priced machine in manufacturing. By using Verdafero's SaaS, it's possible to detect problems well ahead of an actual breakdown, thus saving the client money in additional costly repairs. This allows the client to determine when it's the best time to disrupt production for routine maintenance.

Alexa, disarm the victim’s home security system

Alexa, disarm the victim’s home security system | #TpromoCom #Alexa #Security #Hackers | Kelly Jackson Higgins, Executive Editor at Dark Reading, explores how hacking attempts on ‘smart’ home assistants via laser pointers have raised further security concerns about the devices. (ifsecglobal.com) https://bit.ly/2JNIeRy

Researchers who last year hacked popular voice assistants with laser pointers take their work to the next level.

It’s still a mystery to researchers at the University of Michigan and The University of Electro-Communications (Tokyo) – just what physically enabled them to inject commands into the embedded microphones of Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and other digital voice assistant devices via laser pointers.
