Transform the management and effectiveness of your security surveillance with SmartVis analytics.
Digital Barriers provides a wide range of video analytics, including award-winning, automated intrusion-detection solution and highly accurate facial recognition, which make the review of live surveillance and forensic video more efficient.
Our cutting-edge technology detects and recognises intruders and other anomalies at a host of sites, including critical national infrastructure and retail facilities.
SmartVis Face, our highly advanced facial-recognition software, analyses CCTV or video footage to detect and match subjects against a watchlist of known individuals.
SmartVis SafeZone, our government-accredited i-LIDS® automated intrusion-detection technology, offers flexible, scalable video analytics for perimeter protection and is designed for small to large scale installations.
Our analytics are reliable, cost-effective, easy to deploy and save time and money by automating video monitoring using intelligent analysis.
The focus is on easy set-up, low false alarms, and reducing expensive operator time. By deploying SmartVis, operators can serve more sites and deal with problem cameras.
SmartVis analytics are highly efficient and can run at the edge, eliminating the need to upgrade network infrastructure. For example, our intrusion-detection analytic SafeZone can run as an app on Axis cameras and encoders through the Axis Camera Application Platform (ACAP) - or on your servers, making the most of new and existing cameras.
If you want to integrate SmartVis capabilities into your own application, the SmartVis software developer kit can be deployed on any Windows or Linux server.
However, if you don’t want the hassle of setting up your own infrastructure, then our cloud-based solution provides the same capabilities as a fully managed service.
Our video analytics are the result of many years of computer vision research and optimisation.
SmartVis uniquely monitors for activity in low resolution and low frame-rate video, and is very bandwidth efficient, allowing more streams to be monitored on a single server, without any loss of reliability.
Digital Barriers’ unique processing engines have been customised for the common issues faced by video analytics.
For example, our intrusion-detection analytic SmartVis SafeZone scrutinises events in 3D for an enhanced interpretation of suspicious activity. It ignores environmental effects like poor weather, camera shake, moving foliage and shadows that account for costly time-consuming nuisance alarms.
SmartVis technology can be applied to any video camera to monitor non-intrusively without fatigue or inattention. Applying SmartVis analytics allows exceptions to be identified and communicated without delay and with a greatly reduced chance of missing a key event.

The ability to distinguish between people and vehicles enables SafeZone to keep a 24/7 lookout for people in an area where only vehicles should be
Anything suspicious is flagged to security guards for immediate action
SafeZone alerts are sent directly to the guard - wherever he is on his rounds
False alarms have a real cost, each one must be verified by a human operator before any action can be taken, consuming man hours and holding up the processing of real alarms.
The diagram below compares the output of a typical motion-detection system and SafeZone.
The typical motion-detection system has reacted to moving foliage and shadows and repeatedly false alarmed, which often leads to the operator turning the system off.
In contrast, SmartVis SafeZone has operated reliably – saving time and money.
SmartVis SafeZone can be deployed at the edge on Axis cameras or Digital Barriers’ EdgeVis encoders.
All SmartVis capabilities can be integrated into your applications using the SmartVis Developer software developer kit or our cloud service.
