The Spanish video door entry systems brand had advanced us that 2019 would be the year of connectivity. And they’re truly making it happen: Fermax announces the launch of their new DUOX monitors with WiFi connectivity. And with them comes the ability to answer calls and open the door from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet).

True to their commitment to make the best technology available to the mainstream market, Fermax releases the DUOX VEO WiFi and DUOX VEO-XS WiFi monitors with integrated Internet connectivity, which allows calls at home to be diverted to the user's smartphone or tablet.

Video door entry

WiFi connectivity on monitors sets a radical change in video door entry, as it allows the user to interact when they are away from their home as they would if they were at home. Thanks the call divert to smartphone and tablet, users can see the person that is at their front door, have a conversation with the them or open the door if they want to, from anywhere in the world.

You can answer any call made to your video door entry system, any timeIt doesn't matter whether you're in the office, traveling or on holiday, in or out of the house: you can answer any call made to your video door entry system, any time: just download Fermax's free BLUE app and pair the monitor with your mobile device. With the new DUOX VEO WiFi and DUOX VEO-XS WiFi monitors, FERMAX has taken the leap into the ‘Internet of Things’, a revolutionary concept where objects are connected to make life easier.

Entry-Level systems

Fermax offers the VEO and VEO-XS monitors with DUOX technology as their new entry-level systems. These monitors were already ahead of any other indoor terminal on the market with their great little technical features. Both the VEO (with handset) and VEO-XS (hands-free) versions have a 4.3" widescreen color display (16:9 format), ringtone options, automatic image capture and a ‘do not disturb’ function.

They also have the impeccable design you would expect from the Spanish brand. And now, you can choose the WiFi call divert option for convenience, natural communication, whether you’re at home or not. And for individual homes, the DUOX VEO WiFi and DUOX VEO-XS WiFi monitors are also available in kits: all-in-one solutions with all the necessary elements for the installation.

Visual AI Company AnyVision Changes its Name to Oosto
Visual AI Company AnyVision Changes its Name to Oosto

AnyVision announced today that the company will change its name to Oosto. The new name reflects the company’s evolution and vision for the future which is shaped, in part, by a new collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) CyLab Biometric Research Center. The CMU partnership will focus on early-stage research in object, body, and behavior recognition. Vision AI Oosto CEO, Avi Golan remarks, "Historically, the company has focused on security-related use cases for our watchlist alerting and touchless access control solutions. With the launch of Oosto, we’re looking beyond the lens of security to include ways our solutions can positively impact an organization’s safety, productivity and customer experience.” AnyVision pioneered Vision AI to automate watchlist alerting, identifying security risks as well as valuable customers in real-time to personalize customer experiences and enhance physical security. The rebranded Oosto will leverage the power of Vision AI to enhance the safety of customers, guests, and employees. Solutions include touchless access control, video analytics, and new flavors of video-based recognition (object, body, and behavioral recognition), which deliver the insights and alerts to protect pivotal stakeholders from bad actors and security threats. Partnership with CyLab Biometric Research Center The company’s research partnership with Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) CyLab Biometric Research Center will focus on advanced object classification and behavior recognition algorithms for commercial use cases. This collaboration will help Oosto address a broad range of safety-related use cases, including object detection (e.g., weapons on school grounds) and behavioral analysis (e.g., when someone falls down). As part of the partnership, Marios Savvides, a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and founder and director of the Biometrics Center at CMU, will join Oosto as the Chief AI Scientist to expand Oosto’s AI team led by CTO, Dieter Joecker. “We were impressed by Oosto's commitment to the fair and ethical use of the technology, preserving user privacy, and creating safer spaces for everyone,” said Professor Marios Savvides. “These shared values make Oosto an ideal research partner for CMU to advance object, body, and behavioral recognition and to positively impact our collective safety.” Long histoy in artificial intelligence Over the past 10 years, more than 400 startups linked to CMU have raised more than $7 billion in funding. CMU has a long history in artificial intelligence including the creation of the first AI computer program in 1956 and pioneering work in self-driving cars, facial recognition, and natural language processing. ECE Professor Marios Savvides was named one of the “2020 Outstanding Contributors to AI” awards from the former U.S. Secretary of the Army. His research has been focused on developing core AI and machine-learning algorithms that were successfully applied for robust face detection, face recognition, iris biometrics, and most recently, general object detection and scene understanding. Savvides has generated over 35 patents and patent publications, and over 50 unpublished patent applications to date. "Under the leadership of Prof. Savvides, CMU’s CyLab Biometric Research Center has an impressive track record of successfully transferring AI research out of a lab environment and into reliable and scalable solutions," added Golan. "Visual intelligence is in its infancy and there is so much more work yet to be done. With this partnership, we now have an elite U.S.-based AI research center that will work in concert with our existing AI teams to accelerate the development of advanced deep learning algorithms and exploration of new safety-related use cases, markets, and industries, including medical, payments, and smart cities.” As part of these corporate rebranding efforts, the company is also renaming its products to OnWatch (formerly A Better Tomorrow), OnAccess (formerly Abraxas), and OnPatrol.

How Well Do Systems Meet Video Surveillance Needs In Prisons?

Keeping prisoners safely housed is among the biggest challenges the security industry faces. Correctional applications of security technology are often more extreme and require a specialized mix of technologies. We asked our Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the video security and surveillance needs in prisons, and how well do technologies meet those needs? Are there any ethical qualms about selling to prisons?
