i-PRO will add AI Scene Change Detection to its collection of powerful edge-based AI analytics applications at ISC West 2023 on Stand #10037.

Scene Change Detection is the first AI-based analytic application that provides easy on-site learning of a scene. When anomalies occur within the camera’s field of view, an alert can be sent to security and operations teams.

The new application – which will be deployable to more than 100 i-PRO AI camera models upon release – is unlike traditional AI-based object detection analytics which alert or flag when objects cross lines or enter predefined zones.

On the contrary, scene change detection allows users to teach a surveillance camera what an entire scene looks like in a normal state. The analytic then flags an anomaly whenever any preselected part of the scene varies from normal.

Because of customised threshold settings, brief changes in the scene are ignored since the scene returns to normal within an acceptable timeframe. Utilising AI-based object detection ensures that people that pass through the scene can be automatically excluded.

Norio Hitsuishi, Head of Product Management, i-PRO said: “We believe that i-PRO’s Scene Change Detection represents the industry’s first edge AI-based scene change detection app to optimise the scene detection algorithm by learning from captured images.

“Our unique implementation is very powerful and allows for users to specify how much change triggers an alert after a specified elapsed time. For example, an outside door should be able to open and close routinely without triggering an alarm.

“Using Scene Change Detection, users can set it to only alarm if the door is left open for more than 5 minutes. This is something that traditional motion detection analytics can’t do.”
