  • Actuate’s AI software closely monitors spaces and instantly alerts security staff of potential security threats such as intruders and loiterers.

Actuate sends a real-time alert with video of the intruder to your mobile device or VMS and effectively protects facilities by detecting intruders using existing security cameras, eliminating the need for new hardware. Because it’s based on the latest deep learning AI technology, false positives are eliminated.

Because it’s based on the latest deep learning AI technology, false positives are eliminated.
  • This enables security teams to trigger human response to the right place and right time instead of inefficiently monitoring security camera feeds and walking preplanned patrol routes.

  • Not only does this improve human safety in the case of potentially violent situations or slip & fall incidents, but it helps prevent costly thefts and saves security budgets as well.

  • By using a combination of human guards and Actuate technology, Actuate’s largest customer reduced annual guarding costs from $42M to $18M per year.

AI Gun Detection:

  • Actuate’s AI software instantly identifies guns with ~99{8a924211cc822977802140fcd9ee67aa8e3c0868cac8d22acbf0be98ed6534bd} accuracy using existing cameras and hardware.

  • When a gun is detected, alerts are automatically issued to security teams with information on the threat’s location, identity, and armament.

  • This saves precious time, allowing law enforcement to respond faster and more effectively to help keep people safe.

(Actuate detects weapons as soon as they are visible on camera, flagging threats before shots are fired, providing building security and law enforcement with precious seconds to address the situation. The end result: increased response time, faster emergency warnings to building occupants, and saved lives. No new hardware required. Courtesy of Actuate.)

  • Actuate’s AI model improves detection accuracy and reduces false positives by over 97{8a924211cc822977802140fcd9ee67aa8e3c0868cac8d22acbf0be98ed6534bd} with true exception-based monitoring.

Count and Track Foot Traffic:

  • Actuate’s AI software detects and counts people, tracks their flow through facilities, and reports key analytics, including crowd and loitering detection.

  • The system is built from the ground up to avoid bias and collects no personally identifiable information.

Mitigating Liability Risk from Slip & Fall Incidents:
