Systems With Intelligence offers a selection of software that can be tailored to the requirements of the monitoring application. Video and thermal analytics that can be user configured for every situation at the remote monitoring site with interfaces and protocols to connect video and alarm message to email or SCADA systems. The video management software client provides configuration, control and viewing from remote workstations.
The VMS2000 Video Management Software is the software component behind the Systems With Intelligence video monitoring solution. It allows for central and remote management of the Systems With Intelligence Digital Video Servers (DVS) and provides live video viewing, remote camera control, video data archive management, remote access services, video analytics algorithms and alarm and event notification. The VMS2000 can connect to multiple DVSs and can manage hundreds of video cameras. It also manages remote video access to all DVSs which allows for the distribution and viewing of system events and alarms to any computer connected to the network. Since it operates on the network edge, it reduces ongoing operating costs because it minimizes bandwidth, communications, power and back office IT infrastructure requirements.
VMS2000 Software Components Include:
The software that resides in the Digital Video Server (DVS), and is responsible for all the functions operating on the DVS hardware.
Since it is operates on the DVS itself (on the network edge), it reduces ongoing operating costs because it minimizes bandwidth, communications, power and back office IT infrastructure requirements. The VMS2000 Server software records video images, analyzes them using unique video analytics, determines if a rule has been breached, then sends a real-time alert with an image to an operator. The video is also stored in the DVS for event review and investigation. The VMS Server software is also responsible to stream the video feeds to any connected VMS2000 Client, provide PTZ control, control all serial and digital I/O interfaces to allow integration of physical security devices and other control functionality to the overall video surveillance solution.
The software that resides remotely on a user’s laptop or personal computer and is the main user interface for the video monitoring system. It is designed to connect to multiple DVS devices located locally or across multiple sites. The VMS2000 can be run on any computer or laptop.
The software algorithms that are used to automatically identify various types of asset monitoring and security conditions.
Systems With Intelligence analytics manage tasks and automate the monitoring function. The operator can set up rules that describe what they are trying to monitor. Rules are simple sets of specifications that say what to look for, where to look for it, and what to do if it happens. If, for example, the operator sets up a rule to watch the temperature on a set of bushings, the VMS2000 software will analyze the temperatures send an alarm to SCADA when the limit is exceeded. Analytics work by looking at data and analyzing it in real-time. This means that there is no delay between an event and the reaction to it; the analytics processes data on the fly, the same way as would a person looking at the camera feed.
VMS2000 Archiver Server
The software that resides on a central dedicated computer that manages the retrieval of all stored video and data from each DVS to an external storage device for the purposes of long-term data archiving.
