VMS2000 Analytics

Digital Video Analytics Software



The software algorithms that are used to automatically identify various types of asset monitoring and security conditions.

Systems With Intelligence analytics manage tasks and automate the monitoring function. The operator can set up rules that describe what they are trying to monitor. Rules are simple sets of specifications that say what to look for, where to look for it, and what to do if it happens. If, for example, the operator sets up a rule to watch the temperature on a set of bushings, the VMS2000 software will analyze the temperatures send an alarm to SCADA when the limit is exceeded. Analytics work by looking at data and analyzing it in real-time. This means that there is no delay between an event and the reaction to it; the analytics processes data on the fly, the same way as would a person looking at the camera feed.

Visual Analytics:

  • Motion detection
  • Boundary Crossing
  • Loitering
  • Camera Tampering

Thermal Analytics:

  • 3 Phase Comparison
  • Absolute Temperature Measurement
  • Relative Temperature Measurement
  • Temperature Rate of Change

Benefits of Analytics:

Reduce Network Bandwidth – Streaming video over a network gives rise to many bandwidth and network resource issues. In many cases, and for remote locations, continuously streaming video over a wide area network is not practical. In this case, video analytics can be used to decide when to transmit video. For example, when a person enters a field of view where no one should be present, a small video clip can be transmitted to an operator for remote viewing. Bandwidth and network resources are preserved and only used when an event of interest occurs. Video analytics can provide effective monitoring of remote locations that may only have low speed network connectivity available.

Reduce Video Storage Requirements – Storage optimization is a common use for video analytics. In its simplest form, video analytics examines video feeds to identify changes in motion. Based on the presence or absence of motion, the video management system can decide not to store video or to store video at a lower frame rate or resolution. Since surveillance video captures long periods of inactivity, like at unmanned substations, using video analytics can reduce storage consumption by 60% – 80% relative to continuous recording. Recording only when an event has occurred also results in the ability to quickly search and retrieve specific security events in post-event analysis.

Industrial IoT Sensor Module



The SM500 Industrial IoT Sensor Module monitors and collects asset health data from remote sites. By connecting simultaneously to multiple sensors via Modbus, it is the perfect tool for preventive and predictive maintenance. Data analytics detect anomalies and provide automatic warnings. 

The SM500 can enable flood warning and other safety, environmental and quality monitoring with externally connected sensors. Signals are transmitted securely from the device to a dashboard on a phone, laptop or other platform. Remote updates ensure the firmware is current as well as enabling customization of the devices.


•  Collect data from 64 different parameters from up to 32 different sensing devices via Modbus
•  Secure cellullar connection to IoT Cloud
•  I/O connections enable external sensors
•  Low power consumption
•  Optional connection to SCADA/GIS and asset management applications
