Intellivision Introduces AI-Based Audio Analytics Library for Smart Cameras

The Intellivision audio analytics library uses deep learning to detect and classify common audio events within a radius of up to 50 feet.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — IntelliVision Technologies Corp., a subsidiary of Nortek Security & Control and provider of AI and deep learning video and audio analytics software for smart cameras, announces the latest release of its deep learning-based audio analytics library for smart cameras and other devices.

IntelliVision says its audio analytics library can recognize and classify:

  • Smoke/fire alarms
  • Glass breaking
  • Loud, abnormal noise

“Audio event recognition combined with video analytics gives a more complete picture of a suspicious event in the home or on commercial property,” says Vaidhi Nathan, senior vice president cameras and analytics at Nortek Security & Control. “A video camera on its own may not pick up a breaking window in another room, and a smoke alarm won’t be noticed until it’s too late if no one is home. However, audio and video analytics working together increases the likelihood that no abnormal event goes undetected.”

The IntelliVision audio event detection library provides analytics for audio events within a radius of up to 50 feet of the microphone, according to the company. Future releases will add support for other noises such as shouting, gunshot, baby crying and dog barking.

Audio analytics is part of the IntelliVision family of video and audio analytics solutions that also includes face recognition, object classification (humans, vehicles, pets, airplanes), intelligent object detection, intrusion/perimeter watch, object left/removed and license plate recognition (LPR/ANPR).

Earlier this year, the company added anti-spoofing to its facial recognition analytics.
