Avigilon offers advanced solutions to enforce COVID-19 rules

24 November 2020

Our recommended CCTV system, produced by Avigilon, now includes a range of technological solutions that aim to support you to reduce COVID-19 transmission by supporting social distancing rules and the wearing of face masks. As we near the end of the latest lockdown in England Security Group engineers, who are experts in the Avigilon software and cameras, can support you to make the most of these products.

Social Distancing detection

Recent upgrades of the Avigilon’s Control Center 7 software (ACC 7.8) allow CCTV operators to detect breaches of social distancing guidelines around sites and inside buildings. This technology works when combined with embedded analytics within the advanced Avigilon H5A cameras.

The technology can demonstrate to those managing commercial spaces or other buildings, like schools or healthcare settings, where there are potential bottlenecks and so social distancing will be difficult. This will allow managers to make changes within the buildings, for example, by only allowing people to walk in one direction through a corridor to reduce the numbers having to be in close proximity to each other.

Additionally, if necessary, you could provide audible warnings to those breaching social distancing guidelines at the time. Security Group’s engineers have expertise in integrating the Avigilon CCTV system with IP enabled speakers and a SIP microphone as part of a school lockdown solution which we can adapt to these new requirements.

Occupancy Counting

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our way of life, at both a professional and personal level. As the latest lockdown is eased in England organisations, both public and private, will need to consider how they open up their operations again while continuing to keep their employees and customers safe.

The Occupancy Counting feature in ACC 7, can provide organisations an easy and streamlined way to count and identify the number of people on your premises. The feature aims to remove the staffing costs required to count people manually and the subsequent guesswork on occupancy by frontline employees, particularly where facilities have multiple entry and exit points. Occupancy Counting helps organisations comply with social distancing guidelines by limiting the number of people in a facility, thereby reducing the interactions between them.

This solution is available if you have H4A or H5A cameras and ACC 7.6.4 or a higher version of the software and are using Avigilon Cloud Services (ACS). The feature can also be available if you have third-party cameras attached to an Avigilon Artificial Intelligence Appliance.

Face Mask Detection

Face coverings are compulsory in the UK in shops and take-aways as well as in banks, post offices, on public transport and in hospitals.

Enforcing the rules are important and Avigilon’s Face Mask Detection technology is available with ACC 7.6.4 and provides effective monitoring and enables proactive, real-time responses from your team. This feature relies on AI-enabled video analytics and specially-placed security cameras to determine when an individual is not wearing a face mask within your site. Once the feature detects an individual is in violation this prompts an automated alert through the ACC 7 software.

Like with social distancing rule breaches you could enforce compliance by providing an audible warning to those involved and Security Group has the expertise to adapt the technology to do this.
