FOCUS: SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS Cloud hosted maintenance tool Honeywell’s Total Connect Pro Manager is a maintenance tool hosted in the Honeywell Cloud, allowing installers to remotely access their customers’ Total Connect Box wireless control panels. Installers can perform diagnostics, adjust configurations and offer maintenance to customers on the go. With this information at their fingertips, installers can offer pre-emptive maintenance to home and small business owners. For example, installers can alert customers if a battery level is low on their system, or if a change to a sensor location has caused poor radio transmission levels. By providing this extra level of customer service, installers can ensure home and small business owners are getting the best out of their Total Connect Box system and prevent costly, inconvenient site visits. Using AI to predict human behaviour from facial expressions Human has developed new software that has the ability to read subliminal facial expressions live and convert these into a range of deeper emotions and specific characteristic traits in real time. The software is designed to take security and intelligence insight onto another level. Through the deciphering of live characteristic traits and emotions utilising deep learning, the technology is aimed at better equipping the security and intelligence world with data that will keep both the security provider and its customers safe, thus allowing them to make vital decisions such as monitoring extreme, or even life-threatening behaviour in some cases. The technology is also supporting suicide prevention, face detection and verification amongst crowds, extreme behavior monitoring, societal disturbances and anti-social behavior. Yi Xu, CEO and Founder of Human explains: “The ongoing scanning of emotions and characteristics in both small and large crowds has provided our clients with the ability to flag any extreme highs and lows in emotions. When narrowed down to extreme happiness, sadness, nervousness amongst others, it is giving both general and security staff the foresight and ability to step in before the worst case scenario presents itself.” This continues to further aid the ongoing pattern spotting and monitoring that exists today. The flagging of characteristics and emotions combined with face detection allows crowd monitoring and tracking to be taken from a previously reactionary process, to a preventative state. Businesses can now be confident that they are acting with the added benefit of psychological and emotional data as well as a visual track. 46 Free entry for security developers Milestone Systems offers XProtect Essential+ as a free entry product to the company’s portfolio.
