SSI’s Top Technology Innovations of 2020 susses out the key trends coursing through the electronic access control, fire/life-safety, intrusion detection and video surveillance sectors as well as security business operations itself.
Among this year’s picks is the Rock, by Alcatraz AI. Find out why the access control solution was chosen by SSI columnist Paul Boucherle below and make sure to check out SSI Editor-in-Chief Scott Goldfine’s interview with the company’s CEO and founder Vince Gaydarzhiev, as he talks about his company and technology, as well as the market and integrator opportunities.
Paul Boucherle: Alcatraz AI introduces the Rock … a unique twist on advanced access control. For 10 years, I have believed that combining existing EAC, video and authorized access is the future. Coupling this approach with addressing privacy compliance, a hardened Linux-based OS, streamlined operational enrollment and leveraging current video asset investments will upgrade a customer’s facility security profile.
The Rock hardware is aptly named for its form factor and as the foundation for data acquisition and storage that feeds the AI/machine learning design. 3D and 2D imaging “build” profiles that validate and simplify databases. This company has provided an innovative, phased approach to making this concept viable for simplicity, validation and verification across an enterprise. alcatraz.ai
