Security and Safety Things (S&ST) now offers 100 unique video analytic applications in its Application Store. It now features 100 ready-to-use apps that offer video analytic solutions for retail, manufacturing and logistics, commercial office space, parking and stadium environments. The apps are designed to run on smart cameras using the S&ST open camera operating system and the S&ST open IoT platform, which enable cameras to simultaneously run a variety of applications that perform different functions. The camera OS is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).
“The depth and breadth of the apps we’re able to offer customers through our Application Store is a testament to the growing market demand for flexible, innovative video analytics solutions to meet unique business needs,” said Hartmut Schaper, chief executive officer, Security & Safety Things. “By bringing together the collective power of our developer partners, S&ST can make the increasingly fast emerging innovation in video analytics solutions quickly available for businesses and integrators to generate value.”
End users can download and install new apps to their camera, using the S&ST OS, to fit new operational requirements. This also eliminates the need to purchase new hardware to add additional functionality to their video surveillance system. According to S&ST, this smartphone approach to video surveillance offers pre-engineered apps and speeds up time to market – reducing development efforts for system integrators and camera manufacturers.
