Viisights recently joined the ZeroNow coalition, a movement by the safety community to reduce violence in schools, as an industry partner.

Viisights specializes in behavioral video analytics, enabling the automatic detection of critical events within the campus environment, according to the company.

“We formed ZeroNow with the goal of creating an alliance that would generate new ideas and innovation to stop the relentless assaults, both, physical and cyber, on K-12 schools and colleges and universities,” said Ara Bagdasarian, CEO and co-founder of ZeroNow in a statement. “viisights is pushing real-time video analytics with behavioral capabilities to the next level, which is a great addition to our knowledge base.”

Viisights offers schools enhanced “person holding a weapon” detection, capable of both identifying individuals carrying a weapon and automatically initiating a lockdown in the event weapons are detected. Additional analytic capabilities include violence prediction and recognition, suspicious activity monitoring, fire and smoke detection, perimeter protection and tailgating detection. These capabilities can integrate with existing video management and access control systems, states viisights.


“Behavioral recognition systems give us real-time video intelligence,” said Asaf Birenzvieg, CEO and co-founder at viisights. “When dealing with incidents involving active shooters, bullying, fighting, vandalism and antisocial behavior, intelligent real-time behavioral recognition video goes far in safeguarding the learning environment.”
