ST. PAUL – Alula has released a new video platform which features new camera models, AI-based object detection, improvements to video clip navigation and viewing in the Alula Smart Security App.
Users can also work with the video capabilities in the new Slimline Touchpad PRO.
Three new cameras have been added to Alula’s video portfolio. The first is an industrial-designed Outdoor Bullet for viewing porches, alleyways and backyards.
The second camera is a smart Doorbell with improved motion detection algorithms and active motion highlighting.
The final model is the Indoor 360, featuring responsive pan-tilt operation for broad viewing coverage. Alula says all three cameras deliver extended Wi-Fi range and night vision.
The Outdoor Bullet camera is equipped with AI object detection, enabling the camera to differentiate between vehicles, people, pets and other objects. The AI object detection should distinguish between clips that are representative of an actual threat like an unknown intruder as opposed to regular activity like a child returning home from school.
Alula’s app allows adjustments to individual camera settings so that system notifications are sent to system users when specific motion activity occurs. App enhancements for navigating stored video clips allow users to find and view clips that were captured at a specific date and time.
Alula’s new video platform can be used as part of a more comprehensive smart security system when used in conjunction with the Connect+ control panel. It can also be used as a standalone video surveillance system, which Alula says may prove useful for dealers and integrators looking to get their foot in the door with consumers and small business owners that may initially only be interested in video services.
“If you need another reason to take a serious look at Alula’s new video platform, consider our newest system control interface – the Slimline Touchpad PRO,” said Corey Plender, Alula’s vice president, product management & customer success in a statement.
The Touchpad PRO plays an audible chime when the doorbell is activated. It also enables two-way conversation with visitors through the new Doorbell camera, or with people in various locations throughout the property with the Indoor 360 camera.
