The technology of cameras in the IoT is getting smarter every day. Powerful processors and fast data connections make it easy for users not only to create videos but also to analyze data directly on devices.
For this purpose, we at Security and Safety Things offer an open platform with a marketplace for apps developed especially for security cameras.
Other start-ups like us are working on improving the performance of cameras and platforms. For example, so that the cameras can deliver videos in even more brilliant quality. Also to make the processing and analysis of video data as easy as possible for users. In addition, data must be protected from manipulation.
And there are many other important topics to mention...
Let's take a look at some exciting startups and their ideas.
1. Start-Ups that will Boost Camera performance in IoT
BlinkAI Technologies is creating transformative AI solutions to optimally extract sensor information for applications in autonomous vehicles, robotics, industrial sensing, and beyond.
The company's real-time low-light video enhancement technology can be deployed on low-power embedded systems in smartphones, automotive, and security/surveillance industries.

What if Extreme Ultra High Definition video content at 8K and beyond could be captured with an inexpensive camera built from conventional components? Entropix has developed a hardware-enabled software technology making this a reality.
Entropix uses AI to reverse the resolution-degrading effects of optical blur and sensor sampling in order to reconstruct the original color stream to nine times its captured pixel density.
Headquarter: Portland, USA

Lentix’s“XPOSE”is a patented, software-based imaging solution that automatically corrects shadowing and low lighting to instantly reveal valuable surveillance information and that would otherwise go undetected.
Headquarter: Knoxville, USA
Spectral Edge develops low-light performance tech for video surveillance cameras. By dynamically fusing RGB & IR data in real time Spectral Edge’s tech enhances overall camera performance by extending the time period for usable colors.
Instead of an arbitrary switch over between visible and NIR views, cameras powered by Spectral Edge provide a blend of both, maximizing resulting video quality & image recognition capabilities.

Implementing IoT in a new building or retrofitting old buildings with smart devices can be complicated projects that require large capital investments and specialized knowledge.
Optigo Connect is an Ethernet networking solution capable of connecting thousands of smart devices anywhere on the property with a fraction of the infrastructure of traditional hardware.
Headquarter: Vancouver, Canada
Verkada’s IoT platform combines plug-and-play security cameras with intelligent, cloud-based software — all in a scalable, user-friendly system.
Organizations use Verkada to protect people and assets, secure facilities, and gain new insights that improve the efficiency of their operations. Verkada's vision is for an autonomous, distributed system capable of understanding the physical world in real time.
Headquarter: San Mateo, USA
VXG Platform is a software NVR, multi-format streaming server and lightweight VMS with an AI interface and Web and Mobile front-ends. You can run it on the Cloud, on premises and on the edge, anywhere you need need recording and AI.
Headquarter: Toronto, Canada
3. A Start-Up that will Revolutionise Cyber Security in IoT
VDOO’s automated IoT security platform provides an end-to-end solution for security automation, certification, and protection. It enables connected devices manufacturers and users gain full control over the device security through its entire life cycle, taking into account the device’s performance and time-to-market.
Headquarter: Aviv-Yafo, Israel
