Find more, search less

Locating an incident, individual, vehicle or item on video has traditionally been extremely time-consuming, especially when a site has multiple cameras recording 24/7.

XProtect® Rapid REVIEW helps reduce the time it takes to narrow down the search. What took hours now takes minutes thanks to detailed search filtering and advanced analytics.

Manage crowd safety and ease mobility

The public inconvenience and potential danger associated with large crowds, such as at sports events and busy transport hubs, can be mitigated or prevented with video technology.

As well as giving security teams enhanced situational awareness, XProtect lets you integrate a range of analytics functions including people counting, and heat mapping. It helps take the pressure off police and security staff, who can be deployed or quickly directed to where they are needed most.

Act faster, save lives

In firearm incidents, every second counts. Gunshot Detection Technology instantly alerts law enforcement and pinpoints where the shots were fired to ensure the fastest response possible and to prevent violence and potential escalation.

This technology also provides valuable data and insights to assist city officials in analyzing crime patterns, identifying high-crime areas, and implementing targeted interventions.

Recognize. Authorize. Protect.

License Plate Recognition (LPR) offers a range of benefits, from apprehending criminals to easing parking and traffic management in busy city areas.

Law enforcement can use it to identify and track vehicles as well in post-event investigations. LPR also reduces the complexity and costs of managing parking buildings and subscriptions and collecting tolls. All the data being collected is shared across city departments.
