Calipsa, a provider of deep learning-enabled video analytics for false alarm reduction, announces that Edmonton, Alberta, Canada-based GPS Security Group is using its false alarm filtering platform.
GPS, which offers a complete range of security services across Alberta, British Columbia and other parts of Western Canada, is the third Canadian central monitoring station to adopt the Cloud-based Calipsa technology.
Calipsa’s software uses artificial intelligence (AI) with deep learning technology to recognize genuine alarms caused by human or vehicle movement, according to the announcement. More than 90% of notifications resulting from nuisance factors such as animals, lighting, weather or foliage are filtered out, helping operators reduce their response times to genuine threats.
The GPS Security Group’s Fredy Ramsoondar, corporate senior security solutions advisor and private investigator, says GPS is adopting Calipsa’s AI-enabled video analytics across its video surveillance sites to support the sustained growth of its monitoring division.
“We’ve engaged Calipsa as a strategic growth partner to assist with reducing false video alarms, allowing our operators to focus on only genuine alarms,” he says. “We anticipate widespread benefits, including improved customer service, operational efficiency and employee morale.”
Tara Biglari, Calipsa’s regional sales director, Americas, says its false alarm reduction software is easily scalable, making it ideal for any growing video monitoring station.
“This is an exciting time of growth for the GPS team and we’re happy to partner with them to provide the highest level of customer service,” she adds. “The installation of our cloud-based technology requires no onsite hardware devices and we keep our service always current with remote upgrades.”
A platform dashboard is said to enable station managers to monitor the software’s performance, including detecting idle cameras that may need replacement or moving to a better position.
