07 Dec Ava Security launches Bullet security camera
Ava Security has launched a cloud-connected security camera which utilises AI, machine learning and acoustic analytics.
Ava Bullet has been designed to help users detect anomalies in real time and to receive incident notifications so proactive steps can be taken. It’s ideal for securing locations over long distances, such as streets, car parks, public transport stations, airports and workplaces.
The camera is set to overcome the challenges faced by traditional video solutions like difficult installation, storage constraints, security vulnerabilities and expensive servers. Ava Bullet has a secure plug-and-play configuration, instant cloud connectivity and on-board and cloud storage.
Co-founder of Ava Security and Head of Video Engineering, Sam Lancia, commented: “Video is increasingly critical to the security and safety of airports, cities, and workplaces around the globe, which is why it’s more important than ever to optimise these cameras.
“An overwhelming challenge is the amount of time and manpower that must be devoted to analysing video footage. Which is why through our cloud solution we have preserved all the forensic details customers might need to detect threats without the additional burden of storing large volumes of footage. Instead, users have the relevant insights where and when they need it, to execute appropriate action.”
Via the Aware Cloud, customers will have access to an open data platform, which includes connections to sensors, access control solutions, dashboards and other systems that will unlock advanced business intelligence and analytics.
It can withstand harsh weather conditions and vandalism as it’s built from high-quality materials. It comes equipped with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) which provides a secure encryption key storage for each camera.
The Ava Bullet’s spec includes up to up to 4K (8MP) image sensor, IR illumination and an optical zoom enabling users to capture high quality images even in adverse conditions. Additionally, the built-in video and audio analytics can also detect and identify specific sound patterns, such as breaking glass, smoke alarms or gunshots, and determine their direction.
Ava Security CEO and Co-founder, Tormod Ree, said: “Sophisticated in function and designed for adverse conditions, the Bullet is also dead simple to install. A sliding body makes the physical installation easier than anything else on the market.
“Scanning a QR code connects the Bullet to the Ava Aware Cloud, delivering powerful cloud-native video management and up-to-date features.”
The camera will be available to pre-order this month with shipping in Q1. It will be available in both wide and tele lenses.
