Product testing: BlueSky’s unified platform for financial service providers

Product testing: BlueSky’s unified platform for financial service providers
For financial companies such as banks, security and fire safety systems are often built independently and act in silos. To address this pain point, BlueSky has rolled out their unified security and fire safety platform. This article takes a closer look.
Across industries, including the financial sector, “business empowerment” has become a core concept. Yet for many financial users such as banks, security and fire safety systems are often built independently and act in silos. This goes against the business empowerment concept. To address this pain point, BlueSky has rolled out their unified security and fire safety platform specifically targeting financial operators. This article takes a closer look, based on product testing by a&s China.
 
For financial end users, they demand various security- and safety-related systems such as video surveillance, access control, alarm, fire protection, electronic patrol, parking management, and visitor management. However, due to the different communication protocols and access standards of the systems, they are not well integrated with each other. So end users rely on human workers to check on the systems individually in the control center, a time-consuming and inefficient endeavor.
 
As a leading provider of IoT-based solutions, BlueSky solves this problem with their unified security and fire safety platform to cater to financial companies’ specific needs. Unlike traditional platforms, BlueSky’s is an AIoT-based solution that effectively collects and processes data from various subsystem. With the solution, users get resource integration, unified coordination and control, and comprehensive improvement to work efficiency.
 

Security and fire safety integrated

 
The platform has security and fire safety at its core but also integrates with other subsystems including access control and parking management. Further, the platform connects with external regulatory and law enforcement agencies to truly prevent external and internal risks.
 
The BlueSky platform works well with a variety of security hardware and devices including: cameras, NVRs/DVRs, IP intercoms, alarm hosts, protection cabins, access control equipment, parking and other devices. This allows comprehensive video surveillance and two-way communication for scenes such as alarm centers, parking lots and vaults at banks.
 

 Besides security monitoring, the platform also interacts with the fire safety system to provide comprehensive protection against fires. The platform includes functions such as automatic fire alarm issuance, fire water system monitoring, electrical fire monitoring, smoke detection and combustible gas detection. When an alarm occurs, the platform supports special sound reminders and can report and push the alarm to multiple levels.
 
In order to achieve comprehensive fire safety, Blue Star uses various sensors and technologies to detect the operating status of firefighting equipment in real time, making sure that smoke detectors, hydraulic/liquid level detectors, electrical fire detectors, and combustible gas detectors are working properly. At the same time, when encountering a fire alarm, the platform will automatically call up the electronic map and link relevant security cameras for real-time monitoring, thereby improving the work efficiency for personnel and reducing losses.
 
According to BlueSky, the platform can currently support over 1 million video channels and over 2 million IoT terminals and handle 4 million equipment and operational events per day, providing a very rare and ultra-efficient enterprise-level application for data processing.
 

Fusion of multiple algorithms

 
It’s worth noting that BlueSky has introduced an algorithm containerization mechanism to allow unified control and management of algorithms from different developers. To reduce structural data differences between different algorithms, the platform has a heterogeneous algorithm indexing standard to achieve data optimization. At the same time, the platform’s operation will not be affected when algorithms are being loaded and updated. According to BlueSky, at present, the platform is compatible with all mainstream processors and supports more than ten intelligent algorithms in the industry.
 

Solution advantages:

 
1. Three-dimensional protection: networked devices such as cameras and access control can be marked on electronic maps; managers can directly view various front-end intelligent devices through the platform, which makes their job more efficient;
 
2. Real-time monitoring of fire equipment: Through various types of sensors, the platform can effectively monitor fire-related equipment and automatically issue an alarm when the equipment is damaged or about to fail, effectively achieving predictive maintenance;
 
3. Internal and external integration: Internally, the platform integrates with security and fire safety systems to achieve comprehensive three-dimensional protection; externally, it can connect with regulatory and law-enforcement agencies as part of a municipality’s smart city and smart fire safety initiative.
 
4. Leading technology applications: Through the assistance of technologies such as big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence, the platform is managed intelligently and provides solid footing for the overall development of the financial industry.
 

a&s comments:

 
The Internet of Things has become a major trend in various industries including the financial sector. However, due to problems with communication protocols, IoT hasn’t seen quick adoption. Even in real projects, IoT products are still relatively silo’ed, making full integration difficult.
 
The BlueSky unified security and fire safety platform solves this problem. The AIoT-based solution effectively collects and processes data from various subsystems. With the solution, users get resource integration, unified coordination and control, and comprehensive improvement to work efficiency. The platform achieves real-time data reporting, establishes data models, and automatically issue alarms in case of any data inconsistency, in the process providing maximal security for financial service operators.
 
As a comprehensive provider of IoT-based security and fire safety solutions, BlueSky’s platform has the advantages of autonomy, security, stability, openness and compatibility, effectively bringing traditional security into the Internet of Things era. The platform is the perfect companion for financial service providers and helps them achieve further success in Financial Protection 2.0.
