Geutebruck enables smart phone to become security camera

Windhagen, Germany

Video security specialist, Geutebruck is offering a new solution that integrates smartphones as image sources into professional video management systems.

The new offering presents users with flexible visual documentation of logistics processes, live images in the control room of critical situations, detailed reporting of damages - all made possible simply with a smartphone.

The new app for Android smartphones sends the video streams recorded with the integrated camera live via Wifi or LTE network to a G-Core video management system – optionally including audio. For logistics applications, it automatically recognises bar, QR or other scan codes in the image and combines the scan data with the video footage. The app also allows the triggering of events and adding of comments, which can then be used as a search criterion. Damage to property, e.g. due to vandalism, is thus documented quickly and comprehensively. In the case of an acute emergency, an alarm can be triggered to be displayed live in a central monitoring station including the associated smartphone video (and audio) stream.

Search, display and image retrieval are just as fast and convenient as with permanently installed cameras. All relevant images are immediately and clearly displayed via the event data such as comments or scan codes. Using the tamper-proof and court-certified GBF format, the sequences can be securely exported with the associated metadata to document the incident in the long term and preserve evidence. Existing systems can be flexibly expanded, smartphones and standard security cameras can be combined as required.

Special attention is paid to data protection and data security. The app functions exclusively as an image and data source and does not provide access to recorded images. Registering the smartphones used on the server ensures that only authorised devices function as image sources. Additionally, the app manages its own users - only they can operate the app to initiate video and data recording. All data is protected in the video management system in a GDPR-compliant manner and stored securely from unauthorised access, even if a registered smartphone is lost. With the help of the activatable pixelation of faces directly on the smartphone, the privacy of randomly filmed persons is protected.
