In many camera systems installed for observation and or security purposes, the camera is used as an information gathering source, providing video streams and I/O alarm facilities as part of the total system.
Information, such as scene details in the provided camera’s stream, can be sent to monitoring centers where operators can interpret the relevance of the information. According to his or her human involvement in this case, the follow-up actions for this information for the end-user are manually invoked.
In systems where no operators are available, the same camera information can be diagnosed internally; programmed and processed via smart algorithms in the camera and, as a result, IP connections are invoked to follow-up automation by other smart devices on the network.
In this article, you will find such an automation process between Bosch Cameras and Advantech Adam I/O devices.
In various Verticals, this Bosch - Advantech combined solution can fully automate adequate follow-up actions for the end-user without the cost of a video management system and human intervention.
