CHeKT brings VMS, AI into the central station

CHeKT brings VMS, AI into the central station

LANSDALE, Penn.—CHeKT recently announced support for AI and video analytics with integration into alarm monitoring centers.

With CHeKT's firmware update, the OPTEX Visual Verification Bridge can now supervise cameras with analytics over the IP network and generate alarms based on the camera's analytics. When an analytic event occurs, the Bridge creates a video clip of the incident and transmits the Contact ID alarm code into the monitoring center, giving operators instant access to the site's live video and the pre/post-alarm event video.

The company said that this “advanced level of integration” allows security integrators to use cameras with analytics as new security zones or as additional alarm zones to an existing alarm system, making the Bridge function like a Video Analytics Zone expander.

“When integrators can trigger detection from both physical detection zones and cameras with reliable analytics, you can quickly scale a site into a modern security solution,” John Milliron, vice president of CHeKT said in the announcement. “This allows security companies to leverage an existing alarm system with cutting edge AI technology, ensuring an operator response to AI events.”

The solution allows security companies to leverage the familiarity and reliability of the alarm system with analytics and deliver an alarm and video event into their alarm monitoring center.

“This is a significant announcement for dealers who install sites with high-quality video analytics and need a central monitoring station to provide monitoring service of these cameras,” said Milliron.
