Vendor-independent solutions enable diverse innovations:
- S&ST ecosystem connects open operating system with app store and portals for developers and integrators
- S&ST shows use cases for security cameras, including restaurants, airports and events
- S&ST exhibits as one of three partners at the Bosch booth at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 (CES) in Las Vegas
Munich, – Security & Safety Things GmbH (S&ST) will be presenting innovative use cases for security cameras at CES 2019 from January 8 to 11, 2019. These are the first to be developed on the basis of SAST’s open IoT ecosystem for the security industry. The use cases show the potential of the ecosystem for restaurants, airports and events.
Within the food services sector, restaurateurs can run multiple apps and solutions on the same camera, which allows the system to count visitors and personalize solutions for customers simultaneously.
Amongst the applications for airports, facility operators can set up device-independent networks with different cameras. For example, high-resolution cameras from the entrance hall can be connected to simple devices from supply corridors which enable security teams to detect and track left behind objects, find the owner and alert security.
Meanwhile, entertainment and event organizers can install and continuously update the most innovative solutions from around the world on their cameras with a simple plug-and-play process, ensuring they always have the latest algorithms for predictive control of visitor flow.
S&ST will present these use cases at CES with the help of an AR animation.
“I am excited that we can demonstrate the potential of S&ST at CES with the first tangible use cases. We are working closely with the Open Security and Safety Alliance to establish our open system as an industry standard. Open standards enable vendor-independent solutions and this accelerates innovation similar to what open app stores did for smartphones. It’s new for the security industry,” says Hartmut Schaper, CEO of S&ST.
Open IoT Ecosystem
The S&ST IoT ecosystem consists of: an open operating system that serves as the common basis for all components; a portal for developers with tools for development and testing; a community section for help and inspiration; an app store with ready-to-use apps that can be flexibly combined, and a portal for integrators that provides knowledge about innovative solutions.
These components make it possible to develop completely new solutions and implement them in use cases. S&ST shows first examples at CES 2019.
Use Cases for Security Cameras
The S&ST ecosystem connects three trends of modern security cameras: firstly, stronger computing power enables analyses to be performed directly on the devices; secondly, the connection to the Internet is carried out at ever higher transmission rates with decreasing costs, and finally, algorithms from AI and Machine Learning form the basis for completely new applications.
In addition to these trends, S&ST’s open ecosystem allows flexible linking of apps. This opens up a wide range of possibilities, so that the security industry is on the threshold of a new era of innovation, AI and growth.
Invitation to Developers and Integrators
At CES 2019, developers and integrators will learn how to develop and deploy their own apps based on the ecosystem. S&ST experts will be available for background discussions. The first partners are already developing on the basis of the S&ST ecosystem.
