Milesight and 3dEYE Announce Strategic Collaboration to Enhance Pure Cloud AI Video Solutions

Milesight, a leading provider of innovative IP-based video surveillance solutions, and 3dEYE, a pioneer in cloud-based video management, AI analytics and automation, proudly announce their strategic collaboration to deliver enhanced cloud video solutions to their mutual security and monitoring industry customers.

The partnership between Milesight and 3dEYE brings together Milesight’s cutting-edge IP camera technology with 3dEYE’s advanced pure cloud video AI platform, providing customers with key advantages, such as:

  • Scalable centralized monitoring: The joint effort between 3dEYE and Milesight allows for scalable centralized monitoring, enabling seamless management of multiple cameras across various locations through a single, user-friendly interface – there’s no limit on the number of users or devices connected.
  • Enhanced AI analytics to reduce false alarms: The partnership leverages 3dEYE’s advanced cloud-side AI analytics, empowering users to layer server-side AI to any Milesight camera on-demand: people counting, object detection, classification and tracking, safety vests/hard hats, other PPE detection, fire and smokeALPR, object-based loitering. This integration offers heightened valuable automatic insights for monitoring that simplify the operators work.
  • Ease of deployment and low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO): The collaboration facilitates hassle-free deployment by eliminating the need for substantial upfront investments into servers of bridges (no capex). It operates as plug-and-play, allowing businesses to invest precisely when needed, enabling cost-effectiveness and flexibility for each customer or camera addition.

Through this collaboration, users of Milesight’s high-performance IP cameras can seamlessly integrate with 3dEYE’s sophisticated cloud-based video AI platform.

“Milesight is excited to partner with 3dEYE, combining our state-of-the-art camera technology with their advanced cloud video AI platform.

Sentry AI and Immix Announce New Collaboration

Sentry AI and Immix announced a collaboration to deliver human-like AI to monitoring, enabling them to supercharge their operators, lower costs, and add new revenue streams.

With this new integration, monitoring centers can now upgrade their video monitoring operations on the Immix platform by simply selecting “Sentry AI” in the AI Link setting. The integration allows monitoring centers to offer video monitoring services to a much larger user base as it significantly decreases time and cost wasted in handling false alarms.

A highlight of the joint solution is cutting-edge technologies infused with unique Situational Awareness capabilities. The solution perceives and comprehends camera data, considers historical patterns, and builds spatial and temporal context, all the way down to the camera level. The built-in self-learning component improves accuracy even more with time. This helps to deliver false alarm filtering, reaching 99% in many cases, freeing up the operators to respond quickly to true alarms.

Monitoring centers and security dealers will also benefit from the AI-powered camera matching and health check alerts to notify them when the camera system needs to be serviced.

To provide more information about the joint solution, Sentry AI and Immix will be hosting a webinar on March 1 at 11:00 AM EST. Please register for the webinar at https://smartsentry.ai/sentry-ai-immix-launch-webinar.

Johnson Controls Acquires FogHorn, AI, IoT Software Developer

Johnson Controls has completed the acquisition of FogHorn, a developer of Edge AI software for the industrial and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

“Value is increasingly being created by applying intelligence at the edge-device level to create real-time, secure, actionable insights,” said Johnson Controls Chief Technology Officer Vijay Sankaran. “By pervasively integrating Foghorn’s world class Edge AI throughout our OpenBlue solution portfolio, we are accelerating the pace towards our vision of smart, autonomous buildings that continuously learn, adapt and automatically respond to the needs of the environment and people.”

As the number of sensors and amount of data in buildings continues to grow, the value of processing data and applying intelligence at the edge, without having to send data to the cloud, becomes increasingly pronounced.

Sastry Malladi, who served as chief technology officer at Foghorn, will join Johnson Controls, reporting to Sankaran as vice president, OpenBlue artificial intelligence.

“We are thrilled to bring the Foghorn team and edge AI capabilities to Johnson Controls and OpenBlue,” Malladi said. “By combining our respective strengths, Johnson Controls can make an even bigger impact on continuing to address some of the world’s most pressing challenges of decarbonization, sustainability and energy efficiency, indoor air quality and smart, secure buildings.”

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. FogHorn’s technical team will be integrated into the OpenBlue Solutions organization. FogHorn’s headquarters in Sunnyvale, California will function as an ‘AI Hub’ for Johnson Controls.
