What is video analytics?

If you’re looking up smart security, you’ll read a lot about video technology. From smart cameras to video doorbells, it’s fast becoming a modern security essential - and for good reason.

With video alerts, live camera feeds and 24-hour recording options, video makes it easy to stay in the know about important activity at your home or business. And with video analytics built-in to ADT Smart Home cameras, it becomes even more valuable.

What does video analytics mean?

Video analytics is a highly intelligent security feature that monitors your property’s video streams to distinguish important events from routine activity. It uses this real-time insight to filter and categorise your video alerts, giving your video monitoring a new level of control and customisation.

The features

Developed by our experts, video analytics lets you create virtual ‘zones’ and multi-directional ‘tripwires’ built into your cameras, meaning it can categorise activity based on the layout of your home or business and the areas you need to protect the most.

It can also tell the difference between animals, vehicles and humans. This makes it really handy for avoiding false alarms and informing you of suspicious characters. Along with other clever features that let you know when:

Vehicles come and go

Know when a car stops outside your home, but not every time a vehicle drives past.

Visitors linger

Get a video alert if someone is hanging around your front door, but not when the post is delivered.

Pets break the rules

Know if your pet tries to nap on the couch when you’re at work, or if your neighbour’s dog pays an unwelcome visit to your garden.
