Editor / Provider: mySMAhome.com | Updated: 2/25/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

With increasing popularity of home automation and home monitoring, the demand for cube cameras is on the rise. According to IMS Research, an IHS company, the world shipment volume of consumer and DIY network cameras is predicted to grow prominently from 846,200 units in 2014 to approximately 1.3 million units in 2016. The research firm indicated that about 20% of American households adopt professional home surveillance services already. Thanks to improved technology, the home surveillance services are getting more affordable and accessible for the users. Cube cameras, with wireless connectivity and without cabling, feature flexible installation in indoor areas in comparison with traditional professional surveillance cameras. They are designed for indoor surveillance primarily in small offices, shops, chain stores and schools aside from homes.

The maturity of the network infrastructure, the end users' increasing demand for home security or small-scale security system, and the prevalence of 4G LTE are seen as 3 major driving forces to drive the growth of cube cameras. 4G LTE technology supports faster transmission speed at 100Mbit/s.

North America and Europe are 2 major smart home markets. North America is leading the market regarding home security. The Europe market shows high interest in smart homes and energy conservation. Asia is the other important market to watch, with seeable high growth in near future.

SMARTER
To make cameras smarter, software plays an important role. For example, motion detection alerts and free access to cloud storage for video recordings are available on mobile devices and web browsers via exclusive softwares.

The enhanced features, commonly seen in professional security cameras, boost the market need of cube cameras. The different features of home cube cameras from entry-level DIY cameras comprise low-light performance, PoE, edge storage, and support for alarm inputs and outputs.

The major features of the network cameras comprise compact design, wireless connectivity, easy setup, secured Wi-Fi connection and mobile surveillance. To more specific, users can view high-resolution videos remotely from browser or any other mobile devices via Wi-Fi wireless technology and their cube cameras.

The cost-saving cube cameras can offer professional-grade surveillance performance with up to 2-megapixel resolution at 30fps. They can offer smoother video and image quality than those entry-level DIY models that typically support 1-megapixel resolution and video speed at15fps at most.

When talking to low-light performance, some cube cameras come with mechanical IR cut filters (ICRs) to deliver sharper images at night and truer color at daytime. Those with IR night vision function can support monitoring range up to 10 or 15 meters. While those DIY models, equipped with IR LEDs, support half the viewing distance at night than those cube cameras with ICRs.

WHAT'S NEW BESIDES HOME SECURITY
Besides the home-use market, there is a growing demand on surveillance services for child and elderly care, such as kindergartens, infant daycare and elderly care centers, especially in Asian countries.

Cube cameras stand out in form and features

Cube cameras stand out in form and features

Editor / Provider: Editorial Department, a&s International | Updated: 2/24/2014 | Article type: Hot Topics

Cube cameras are becoming all the rage due to the heightened attention on smart homes over the past year. A common misconception that arose from this emerging wave of cube cameras is that they are suitable only for the home environment. However, these tiny cube cameras are in fact packed with features so rich, they can cover much more than just a regular home. This feature aims to address the differences and performances between cube cameras and their DIY counterparts seen on the market.

The residential and small-and-medium business (SMB) sectors are now much more conscious about the importance and benefits of installing security devices and equipment in their surroundings than just a few years before. Not to mention, the increasing popularity of home automation and home monitoring is increasing the demand for cube cameras. IMS Research (IHS), also indicated that the consumer and DIY network camera market unit shipment will grow from 846,200 in 2014 to approximately 1.3 million in 2016. Based on another report from IMS, approximately 20 % of American households already have professionally monitored services. This number is sure to grow as technology advances and becomes more affordable and accessible for the users. Currently, North America is leading the market in terms of home security, followed by Europe due to its growing interest in smart homes and energy conservation. Meanwhile, Asia is catching up as demands rise throughout the region.

“It is worthy to mention that in Asian countries, the surveillance service provided by private schools, such as kindergartens and infant daycare centers, or the elderly care centers are becoming the trend. The parents are able to watch from online their children's activities and interaction with teachers and peers in class anytime, anywhere, via the surveillance application, while other people are able to deliver care to the old parents at home or care centers, ensuring their safety,” stated Steve Ma, Executive VP at VIVOTEK.

Cube cameras establish market presence
With the amount of SMBs around the world, it is easy to see why manufacturers believe cube cameras have tremendous market potential, which can be attributed to its ease-of-use, real-time, remote monitoring, and decreasing price. “Different resources indicate that more than 95 % of business units are small and medium sized. Secondly, there is an increasing security consciousness in the residential sector. Video surveillance equipment and services are no more a business-involved area, more and more home users tend to adopt video surveillance devices for safeguarding their home, premises, or their family members. Once this kind of requirement becomes main stream, it will push the video surveillance market to another sales peak,” said Adler Wu, IPC Product Manager at Hikvision Digital Technology.

Though cube cameras have yet to reach its peak, manufacturers are certainly holding high hopes for these compact wonder cubes. “In my opinion, the trend to IP is very clear in 2013, with its advantages in mobile connectivity and multiple functions, this trend can certainly push the cube/DIY cameras to mass public. In the startup stage, double or triple growth than traditional CCTV equipment sales is a very comprehensible result,” Wu from Hikvision continued.

Also, cube cameras are easy to install and affordable. “This lowers the hurdle for many small businesses to invest in video surveillance solutions. As they see the value cube cameras can provide to their business, small business owners are likely to continue to invest in video surveillance solutions. Cube cameras are therefore a great door opener for the security industry,” added Andres Vigren, Product Manager at Axis Communications.

Furthermore, there are several factors that will help cube cameras reach its peak: the maturity of the network infrastructure, the end users' increasing demands for home security or small-scale security system, and the prevalence of 4G LTE. “4G LTE is equipped with several traits such as providing faster transmission speed, supporting for interoperation and coexistence with legacy standards, low data transfer latencies, and supporting better mobility. With 4G LTE, the transmission speed for home users will be able to reach 100Mbit/s,” said Ma.

Editor / Provider: Dahua | Updated: 2/20/2014 | Article type: Security 50

Dahua Technology, a global manufacturer and solution provider of video surveillance products headquartered in Hangzhou, China, announced that its latest network camera, DH-HFW5200C, has become one of the first to pass UL-2802 (Performance Testing Standard for Camera Image Quality) certification in the industry and keeps users better protected.

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) launched UL-2802, which is the newest digital-camera performance standard, defining a method to determine video camera's digital image quality ratings through a series of performance tests. Cameras are rated on the following parameters: image resolution; distortion; relative illumination; dynamic range; maximum frame rate; gray level; sensitivity; bad pixel count and veiling glare.

DH-HFW5200C, being a part of Dahua's Eco-Savvy series, presents an outstanding performance as it achieved quite high scores during testing. 3 tests results (Relative Illumination / Dynamic Range / Bad Pixel) were perfect scores, with others (Gray Level / Sensitivity / Veiling Glare) scoring strongly as well, according to the UL testing report.

"It is a pleasure to work with all manufacturers, and Dahua provides one of the first opportunities for certification. The UL-2802 program is a critical stepping stone for end users, manufacturers and integrators to objectively evaluate the performance of a camera's image quality. The UL test methods and procedures provide a fresh technical approach to objectively evaluating camera image quality," said Yeo Fong, Asia Business Development Manager of Built Environment of Underwriters Laboratories. "UL is a reliable, professional and trusted partner and the UL-2802 camera quality program they introduced is of great prospect,” said Tim Shen, overseas Marketing Director at Dahua Technology. "As a manufacturer, we are very happy to participate in this program as it is beneficial to the industry. There finally exists a third-party standard, administered by a trusted quality organization, which differentiates cameras in a fair and objective way."

Axis bolsters traffic safety in Dubuque, US

Axis bolsters traffic safety in Dubuque, US

Editor / Provider: Axis Communications | Updated: 2/11/2014 | Article type: Infrastructure

Mission
The City of Dubuque, Iowa, is a regional hub of 60,000 people on the border of Illinois and Wisconsin. In the early 2000s, the traffic department began linking traffic signals and intersections together in a fiber optic network. Initially, they installed network cameras to detect vehicles at the intersections for signal changes, but they later switched over to microwave-based detectors. Unfortunately, with the change, they lost the ability to view and record video at the intersections.

Solution
To reestablish visual support, the traffic department selected a mix of Axis network cameras provided by systems integrator and Axis partner RACOM. They first installed fixed HDTV AXIS Q1755 Network Cameras, as well as HDTV 1080p AXIS Q6035 pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) for targeted examination. Then, when Axis released the fixed AXIS Q1604 Network Camera with Wide Dynamic Range-Dynamic Capture, the city saw how well wide dynamic range could combat the effects of direct sunlight, reflections off passing vehicles and glare from nearby lights. AXIS Q1604 cameras soon became the standard for future installations. Milestone XProtectR Video Management Software provides critical support for viewing and extracting video at city hall.

Result
The IP cameras have become an integral component of the city's Intelligent Transportation System. Video analysis helps traffic engineers improve roadways without incurring the high costs of new construction. They are able to update signage and roadway markings to improve traffic safety. Police use footage to get an accurate account of accidents and other incidents. Local citizens also use the video to settle disputes over accidents without the need to go to court.

From riverboats to fiber optics
As one of the oldest settlements in the state of Iowa, the City of Dubuque has benefited from more than 200 years of transportation innovations: from steamboats floating in on the Mississippi River to cable cars chugging up and down its bluffs. Continuing this tradition, Dubuque traffic engineers launched a project in the early 2000s to connect all of its traffic signals and intersections to a central monitoring location via Ethernet and fiber optics. As the project evolved, the city began installing Axis network cameras alongside other IP-addressable technology as part of its Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) initiative. “ITS improvements are being utilized a lot more often, because you are able to can get more efficiency out of your existing infrastructure if you improve your communications,” said city engineer David Ness.

In total, 260 cameras have been installed at 80 intersections around town. The design of the Axis cameras made installation simple and efficient. “Getting it out of the box and up on the pole is very easy,” said Ken Fleege, manager of Dubuque, Iowa operations for systems integrator RACOM. The health assessment features of AXIS Camera Management software helps reduce the number of trips needed to maintain the cameras in high traffic areas.

Every detail from all the angles
The city initially installed fixed HDTV-quality AXIS Q1755. These were paired with AXIS Q6035 PTZ Dome Network Cameras, which allowed them to zoom in close and examine specific areas of a scene if needed. After testing the fixed AXIS Q1604 Network Camera when it was released, the city embraced the possibilities offered by the camera's Wide Dynamic Range- Dynamic Capture features. The wide dynamic range feature provides clear, detailed images free of glare from oncoming headlights, traffic signals, emergency vehicles and the sun. “Even when the lights are shining right on the camera, you can see the sidewalk in the dark behind it,” Ness said.

The city customizes many of its AXIS Q1604 cameras with 15-50mm telephoto lenses to get a comprehensive view of several blocks at once. They also employ the default 2.8-8mm wide angle lens to get an overhead shot of all approaches at an intersection. The cameras record 24 hours a day at 10 frames per second. Video is managed with Milestone XProtectR software on HP Z620 workstations. The footage is stored on direct attached drives for 30 days with HP DL380E Generation 8 Servers, which also use high speed drives for the live video databases. The Milestone software allows the traffic department to follow cars seamlessly from one camera to another, and the mapping feature lets them target specific cameras with ease. Wireless technology helps connect cameras on hard-to-reach bridges spanning the Mississippi River.

Safer roads, fewer costs
The IP technology offers unprecedented analytical oversight of traffic safety. “The system gives me a really good heartbeat on the city,” Ness said. “We can go back through the footage and see what led up to accidents and get a good feel for what might help.” In one instance, they installed new signage after observing drivers repeatedly getting confused by a road's lane transition. Elsewhere, they are able to make critical adjustments without the high cost of physically altering roadways. “It's probably a tenth of the cost of adding another lane,” Ness said. They are also able to respond to sudden detours and other incidents remotely with the Milestone smartphone app. The footage also helps police and local citizens make sense of the often chaotic scenes following car accidents. “The police find it extremely useful,” he said. From the scene, they can request the traffic department review video to help produce an accurate report. The traffic department can also review footage afterwards. Following one accident, the video helped reverse the person alleged to be at fault after Ness noticed the footage did not match up with the witness statements. Other times, it has helped people settle disputes and avoid court battles. “I think it really helps citizens put closure on accidents,” Ness said.

Axis captures a burglary suspect with PTZ P5534-E camera

Editor / Provider: Axis Communications | Updated: 2/6/2014 | Article type: Security 50

www.simonkingwildlife.com captures a burglary suspect in the act thanks to the PTZ P5534-E camera from Axis Communications, the global supplier in the network video.

Authorities are pouring over footage of the incident, which was captured in crystal-clear high definition by former BBC Springwatch presenter and Axis camera user, Simon King, who had installed Axis' live stream IP recording cameras and iCode's iCatcher CCTV software to monitor the nocturnal comings and goings of a family of urban foxes in London.

Huw Edwards, director at Axis partner, iCode – the security company that installed the system – said: “We have been responsible for installing all of the Axis equipment for Simon, who often films a variety of different animals and streams the live footage on his website for nature-lovers to view. Of course, the main challenge of shooting night-time environments is always the pitch black conditions. However, as you can see from the footage, the poor visibility is not a problem for the Axis camera.”

The camera used by Simon King is the wall-mounted AXIS P5534-E PTZ Network Camera – an integrated networked pan/tilt/zoom camera with a resolutions of up to HDTV 720p and 18x optical zoom.

Commenting on the incident, Simon King said: “The cameras were set up with motion-sensitive software to record all movement. Anyone can view the network of IP cameras live through my website and they will often see animals doing the strangest of things – but this is taking it one stage further! I use a lot of Axis cameras for my wildlife filming and have always been very impressed with their quality and ease of use.”
