The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning into various industries has revolutionized the way we approach problem-solving and decision-making. The security sector in particular is benefitting greatly from AI technology, especially in the area of threat detection. Actuate has developed a real-time AI threat detection software that integrates seamlessly with existing security systems and optimizes the process of detecting, analyzing and responding to potential threats from guns, intruders, loiterers, and more. Let’s talk about how this technology can strengthen your security without taking a huge bite out of your budget.


How AI Threat Detection Works


Real-time AI threat detection refers to the use of advanced algorithms and machine learning models to analyze data from security systems in real-time. This allows the system to detect and alert you to potential threats quickly and more accurately than traditional methods. By continuously monitoring and learning from the data, AI-driven security solutions can adapt to changing environments and recognize patterns that may indicate potential security breaches or other issues. This makes it an excellent solution for facilities that accommodate large amounts of foot traffic, such as central stations, schools, retail outlets, offices, venues, and others.


Actuate implements a cloud-based, system-agnostic AI threat detection software that integrates seamlessly with existing security systems for enhanced performance with no additional hardware needed. This software continuously analyzes video footage from cameras in real-time to detect anomalies and identify potential threats, When a threat is detected, the software can instantly alert authorized personnel via text or email with actionable intelligence regarding the situation so they can respond quickly and appropriately.


Types of Threats AI Can Identify


Actuate AI’s real-time threat detection systems are capable of analyzing and identifying potentially dangerous situations before they occur, allowing your team appropriate time to respond to them. The types of threats include, but are not limited to:


  • Guns. Actuate can instantly identify a visibly brandished weapon and send an immediate alert.
  • Intruders. AI can detect unauthorized individuals in restricted areas, alerting security personnel.
  • Loitering. Using computer vision algorithms, Actuate can detect when someone is hanging around in camera view for a suspicious length of time. 
  • Crowds. AI can detect when people gather in unsafe numbers, helping you avoid both code violations and other potential dangers.


Benefits of Implementing AI Real-Time Threat Detection


Actuate’s AI threat detection technology offers tangible benefits that will take your existing security system to the next level. These advantages include:


  • Quicker response times. Incorporating AI into your physical security system means threats can be identified at their earliest stages and before they escalate. This allows security personnel to respond more quickly and effectively, minimizing potential damage.
  • Increased accuracy. One of the main challenges with traditional security systems is the occurrence of false alarms. Advanced AI algorithms can accurately differentiate between genuine threats and normal activities, reducing false alarms and ensuring that security teams can focus on legitimate concerns.
  • More robust coverage. Unlike human eyes, AI algorithms don’t get tired. This means Actuate can monitor all video cameras consistently and accurately, providing greater coverage and increased reliability.
  • Cost savings. AI-driven security solutions require less human intervention, which can lead to reduced labor costs. Additionally, as a cloud-based solution that “plays well” with other systems, Actuate is a cost-effective solution because there’s no need to buy, install, or maintain additional hardware.
  • Easy Install. Actuate can be installed right over your current system and does not require ripping out or replacing what you currently have in place.
