SureView Systems, the open response platform provider for running security operations, and Calipsa, provider of deep-learning powered video analytics for false alarm reduction, have integrated their cloud-based flagship technologies. The integration of Calipsa's software with SureView's next-generation physical security information management (PSIM) platform improves the ability of security command centers to manage and respond to video alarm events.

Calipsa's false alarm reduction software easily integrates with the SureView PSIM platform and quickly deploys with no on-premises hardware required. Once a video alarm is triggered on a connected camera, a SureView server sends video to a Calipsa server, where algorithms look for human and vehicle movement before returning genuine alarms. Filtering up to 95 percent of false alarms reduces the chance of SOC operators missing or being delayed in their response to an actual event. The filtering process takes about a second to complete.

Brian Baker, chief revenue officer for Calipsa, said the integration of false alarm reduction technology into the PSIM platforms is an example of SureView's dedication to protecting its customer's people and assets.

"SureView's PSIM platforms automatically filter and prioritize input from multiple disparate security and related systems to present the SOC with alarms and events requiring immediate attention," he said. "The addition of our software vastly reduces false alarms, enabling operators to respond more effectively and efficiently without unnecessary delays."

Simon Morgan, chief product manager of SureView Systems, said the integration of Calipsa false alarm software is a valuable enhancement for users of SureView's next-generation PSIM platforms.

"The number of video alarms in a typical SOC can overwhelm even the best-trained staff," he said. "This partnership with Calipsa virtually eliminates nuisance alarms and the many operational bottlenecks they cause. End-users may deploy the Calipsa software right out of the box with our PSIM platform."

Calipsa's artificial intelligence-based false alarm reduction software uses deep-learning technology to automatically identify humans and vehicles while ignoring alarms generated by weather, blowing foliage or stray animals.
