by Brianna Crandall — February 26, 2020 — Eagle Eye Networks, a global provider of cloud video surveillance, recently announced a Camera Tampering analytic that automatically detects and notifies users if a security camera is tampered with.
While camera tamper notifications are not new to the industry, Eagle Eye Networks says its artificial intelligence (AI)-based approach serves as a differentiator by delivering enhanced accuracy, reliability, and a reduction of false alarms to Eagle Eye Cloud customers.
Common examples of security camera tampering include a sudden change to focus, a covered lens, or an intentional redirection of the camera’s view by physically moving the camera. Without real-time tampering notifications, reaction times to a criminal act may be delayed, says Eagle Eye. In a more benign case, accidental camera movements such as those caused by employees cleaning may prevent the camera from capturing later events.
Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye Networks, stated:
Eagle Eye Networks is more than a video surveillance platform; it’s a business intelligence platform aimed at helping customers improve operational efficiencies while keeping their businesses safe and secure. Eagle Eye Analytics instantly transforms standard analog and IP cameras into powerful AI solutions, without any additional on-site hardware.
In addition to Camera Tampering, Eagle Eye Networks offers the following analytics:
- Line Crossing
- People Counting
- Intrusion Detection
- Object Counting
The Camera Tampering analytic is immediately available globally and can be enabled within the Eagle Eye Dashboard on a camera-by-camera basis. Customers do not need to replace their existing cameras to use the Eagle Eye Cloud Video Management System (VMS) Camera Tampering analytic.
