AI, LiDAR and thermal imaging enabled sensor models for businesses, facilities, security teams and private properties
To provide an enhanced and robust solution for high-security needs here’s presenting a 3D surveillance system, the Leica BLK247 that combines LiDAR, video camera and thermal imaging technology for security that building owners, operators, security teams and facilities managers can benefit from through continuous monitoring of buildings and spaces including hospitals, factories, manufacturing plants and offices. Additionally, the Leica BLK247 provides reliable surveillance for private properties.
With the Leica BLK247, customers can create 3D zones by geofencing areas and applying custom alarm rules. Any number of Leica BLK247 devices can be added to a customer’s existing VMS system, providing an enhanced layer of 3D security where previously there was only 2D protection.
Key Features and Benefits
- Combines LiDAR, RGB video, and thermal imaging sensors with assistive artificial intelligence and edge computing to immediately identify threats versus non-threats.
- Adds LiDAR-based 3D surveillance to existing 2D CCTV security systems, providing greater accuracy that reduces costly false alarms and increases user confidence in the system.
- Assistive AI enables the device to make unaided real-time decisions at the edge of the network on whether to trigger an alarm.
- The device learns the space it is monitoring (known as a “static scene”) and through change detection technology recognises changes within that scene.
- Helps reduce security teams’ reliance on monitoring CCTV or physically guarding a location, while also providing real-time actionable 3D information.
The Leica BLK247 is now available in two versions, the Leica BLK247 i5 and the Leica BLK247 x5 and can be obtained from Leica Geosystems. The devices are suited to monitor and protect different environments. The x5 offers thermal imaging, dust and water protection for both indoor and outdoor environments and an expanded operating temperature range, while the i5 has been mostly designed for indoor environments where thermal imaging is not needed.
