Kansas City, Missouri, USA will deploy the collaboration's solution to monitor the US city's new streetcar line.
The IoT smart city security solution incorporates Sensity Video Nodes, integrated with LED lights, communicating over Wi-Fi to the Genetec Security Center video management system (VMS) with intelligent analytics enabled on the Sensity Video Node. In addition to analytics, the Video Node can record high resolution and low-resolution streams from each of its two cameras and maintain the storage at the edge — using the Genetec Edge Protocol — to be retrieved as needed.
“The significance of this particular IoT security solution is the ability for the Sensity Video Nodes, using the Genetec Edge Protocol, to maintain sensitive video data at the network edge, on the device itself, rather than transporting data back to a central location,” said Stefano Landi, vice president of Sales and Partners at Sensity. “This shift in where the intelligence resides makes possible ‘Security Without Surveillance’ — safeguarding citizens’ privacy through edge-based storage and analytics, while freeing human security personnel from having to watch security video screens all the time.”
