High accuracy insurance add-on for VMS infrastructures

Challenges of Alarm Receiving Centers

Alarm Receiving Centers provide surveillance and response services to a multitude of clients simultaneously.  Monitored sites consist of critical infrastructure, transport facilities, warehouses, venues and more.

Their first line of defense is a sophisticated surveillance infrastructure consisting of hundreds of fixed and PTZ cameras equipped with some form of motion tracker or radar providing live feed to a central VMS.

While such an infrastructure excels at motion and thus, event detection as a downside it comes with an excessive number of false alarms. Various factors can produce false alarms, such as different weather and light conditions, small objects, foliage, animals, plus unusual movement and objects.

As more and more false alarms are generated, the surveillance system eventually becomes unreliable and security personnel may not react to real events because of that. To ensure that false alarm rates are kept at a minimum, surveillance infrastructures needs to utilize the benefits of AI-driven video analytics. This is where U-Filter comes into play.


  • Reduce false alarm rates by 90%+
  • Reduce operator fatigue
  • Increase operational efficiency
  • Upgrade legacy systems with state-of-the-art detectors
  • Faster reaction time to real incidents
  • Increase trust in your system

VMS integration

U-Filter extracts short videos from VMS and sends them to the U-Filter server for analysis. It analyzes all alerts produced by other systems, identifies the ones that truly require further involvement, and forwards the information to the VMS as a notification alongside the relevant video frames.
