Face Recognition and Video Analytics Technologies Take Center Stage for Nortek Security & Control at CES 2019
IntelliVision® technology is being demoed through two new ELAN products.
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – Nortek Security & Control (NSC), a global leader in wireless security, home automation, access control and health and wellness technology, today announced that it is now demonstrating the latest IntelliVision® face recognition and video analytics technologies with two new products – the ELAN Intelligent Touch Panels and ELAN Intelligent Video Doorbell – this week at CES 2019 in Booth #41537 in the Sands Exposition Center.
"We are integrating advanced video analytics and face recognition with our smart home control technologies to empower users to go beyond the smart home experience that they’re used to,” said NSC Senior Marketing Director Bill Hensley. “With these advancements, the smart home is becoming increasingly intuitive and personalized. We look forward to sharing these new experiences with the audience at CES 2019.”
IntelliVision® face recognition technology in the new ELAN Intelligent Touch Panels will be on display. The new touch panels deliver more personalization options than ever before to control the connected smart home. Each new touch panel starts with a high-resolution touch screen interface and built-in microphone array providing voice interface with Amazon Alexa™ and Google Assistant™. But the real ‘magic’ is unlocked with the face recognition.
“Imagine that your touch panel identifies you as you approach and then displays a custom menu of options, sets your preferred lighting and temperature, and turns on your favorite music,” continued Hensley. “Your system is becoming intuitive to your lifestyle.”
Also enabled with IntelliVision analytics is the new ELAN Intelligent Video Doorbell, which elevates the front door experience for users with an added level of safety and security for the main access point of their home. The doorbell enables users to answer the door from anywhere – either in the home or remote – and integrates with the ELAN Surveillance system. But that’s just the start. The doorbell camera integrates IntelliVision advanced motion analytics to accurately distinguish people from moving objects such as a passing car and swaying trees. “This all but eliminates false alerts that cause many users of doorbell cameras to turn off the notices altogether,” said Hensley.
IntelliVision video analytics are also being added to the next generation of ELAN surveillance cameras, adding actionable intelligence to the surveillance system.
