Alarm & Detection

Synapses, self-adaptive multisensor system from Cias Elettronica (Italy), was presented as the first prize winner in the category of Alarm and Detection.

Synapses is a multi-sensor system that combines perimeter sensors with intelligent video. It performs various video analysis algorithms including deep learning. The FoV (Field Of View) of each connected camera can be distributed in eight different areas and paired with 32 field devices.

In the video stream (via RTSP IP video stream), different targets can be distinguished, such as human, car or animal. The response is sent back to the sensor, which dynamically adjusts the actual threshold values to optimise its own detection behaviour.

The Jury's motivation:

“This self-adaptive multi sensor system proves once again CIAS’ outstanding ability to find new ways to use contemporary technology and create intelligent solutions to meet the complex challenges that go with perimeter surveillance.”

Ksenia Lares 4.0 from Ksenia Security (Italy) and Autovu Cloudrunner from Genetec (Canada) received the Innovation Achievement Award .

Ksenia Lares 4.0 is a central device and an IoT platform that offers a combined security and home automation solution. No software is required as programming and control takes place via an app or a web browser. A modular design makes the system easy to expand in case of new needs.

The Jury's motivation:

“With its commitment to evolving an intrusion control panel into a versatile and user friendly IoT platform for security and home automation, there is no doubt that Ksenia is contributing to the modernisation of the professional security market.”

 Autovu Cloudrunner is a new cloud-based system which detects, analyses and stores accurate vehicle identification data to facilitate the work of the police to fight and investigate crime. Regardless of light or weather conditions, vehicles linked to crime are detected and identified. Cloudrunner uses a high performance solar powered automated license plate camera (CR-H2 ) powered by the Autovu Machine Learning Core (MLC) – a neural network-based analysis engine for vehicle recognition. The CR-H2 camera can also identify vehicle type, colour and react to behaviour, estimate speeds and record direction of travel which facilitates police searches, even when license plate information is missing.

The Jury's motivation:

"With its solar-powered automated number plate camera and neural network-based vehicle recognition analysis engine, Autovu Cloudrunner can become a game changer for police investigations – a brilliant example of Genetec’s innovation capability."

ID and Access Control

Biostation 3 from Suprema (South Korea), was presented as the first prize winner in the category of ID and Access Control.

Biostation 3 is an access control terminal with facial recognition, but also offers other contactless authentication options to improve ease of use, including QR codes, barcodes, mobile cards and RFID cards. Biostation 3 uses AI algorithms locally, with a built-in NPU to maximize the performance of the AI engine. Accurate authentication is also offered for faces with different types and colours of masks, hairstyles, hats and glasses. To protect personal data, Suprema's Face Template on Mobile authentication method allows users to store and manage their face authentication template on their mobile phone without having to store it in the company's database.

The Jury's motivation:

“With its powerful AI engine and unique face on the mobile feature, Biostation 3 offers the market a contemporary solution for secure authentication and protection of users’ personal data – truly a winning concept.”

Specter Nano from Stid Security (France) and and 3D Fly from TBS (Switzerland) received the Innovative Achievement Award.

With Specter Nano, both the vehicle and the driver can be detected with multi-factor authentication. The vehicle normally has a UHF tag that the Specter Nano reads at up to about seven metres, but it can also wait for a second authentication to start reading the tag through an input from an external system such as license plate recognition, vehicle detection device or ground loop. At the same time, the driver can also be detected and verified through Stid Mobile ID virtual high-security cards, at up to 20 metres, using one or two-factor authentication.

The Jury's motivation:

“Once again Stid Security shows its capability to create innovative solutions that significantly improve the user experience while securing and eliminating vehicle access lines."

TBS 3D Fly is a contactless scanning terminal that uses fingerprints. In addition, the AI-assisted hand recognition technology increases user throughput without compromising security. With 3D Fly, users do not have to stay physically at the device. The 3D Fly sensor captures a high-resolution image of the entire hand and extracts the biometric characteristics from up to four fingers, resulting in superior recognition performance. This sensor technology – combined with fast data processing – identifies a person within a second.

The Jury's motivation:

“With this remarkable touchless scanning terminal, using fingerprints mixed with AI-assisted hand recognition technology, TBS significantly increases user throughput without compromising on security.”

Video Surveillance

Smart Video Search from Eagle Eye Networks (USA) was presented as the first prize winner in the category of Video Surveillance.

Smart Video Search, a feature of Eagle Eye Cloud VMS that enables efficient search across all cameras and all monitored locations to quickly find the exact video sequence desired and smoothly share videos.

No special cameras, hardware or local installation required. Similar to a web search, customers enter descriptions of what they are looking for, for example "man with blue shirt", "person with backpack" or "white Toyota car".

The results can be filtered by date, time, location or camera. AI is used to index video in near real-time, making the video searchable almost instantly.

The Jury's motivation:

 “The Smart Video Search is a powerful response to the strong market demand for a video search function that offers ease of use, speed, search versatility and precision – a true victory for customised design”.

Axis M5000G from Axis Communications (Sweden) and Ava Quad from Ava Security, (UK) received the Innovative Achievement Award.

With three 5 MP sensors and a PTZ camera with 10x optical zoom and HDTV 1080p, you can get sweeping overviews and zoom in to get details with a single click on the monitor. The Axis M5000-G camera is also compatible with the Smart Home platform Z-Wave. This means that it can, for example, be connected wirelessly to, for example, a PIR detector that reacts to presence in a room and thus triggers the camera to switch on the lighting and send an alarm.

The Jury's motivation:

“Offering an excellent surveillance solution for total situational awareness, Axis M5000-G is further proof of how Axis constantly finds new paths to serve the market’s needs with contemporary technology solutions."
