Azena has announced upgrades to its open platform for smart cameras that offer new integration capabilities for smart cameras into existing video surveillance systems and tools for more efficient device management. With this deeper functionality, those using the Azena platform and the AI-enabled video analytics from the Azena Application Store have wider control over large groups of devices, apps, and configurations running on their smart cameras with the Azena Operating System.
The new integration capabilities make it simpler to configure and deploy smart cameras using specialized analytics—which produce unique events—into a customer’s existing video surveillance system. Metadata from these specialized analytics, such as weapons detection, tank level monitoring, or flood detection, are automatically converted into events for some of the most popular video management software platforms from Milestone, Genetec, and Network Optics.
With more than 100 unique apps available in the growing Azena Application Store, users can select one or more of those apps or develop and upload their own apps that can be visible and sold only to their customers.
The enhancements to the platform now offer a variety of options for deployment and maintenance, from fully remote connections to new support for installations that run on a completely closed network, such as critical infrastructure installations or remote sites with little to no internet connectivity.
Enhanced device management on the Azena platform enables users to more easily perform batch updates to many devices with the same settings as well as backup and restore or replicate those settings to multiple devices. Users can now also negotiate directly with app developers on the platform for volume pricing or other discounts and additional app support. App licensing for customer demos or pilot projects can also be easily extended within the Azena platform.
