Point Roberts, Washington and Delta, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 14, 2019) - Investorideas.com, a global investor news source covering Artificial Intelligence issues a special edition of The AI Eye, reporting on recent news from VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp. (CSE: VSBY) (OTC Pink: VSBGF) (FSE: 5VS), a leading retail software and technology company using artificial intelligence.
Listen to the podcast:
VSBLTY Groupe Technologies Corp. (CSE: VSBY) (FSE: 5VS) (OTC Pink: VSBGF) and intelligent lighting solutions provider Energetika's smart city contract with Mexico City has begun deployment. Investorideas.com caught up with VSBLTY co-founder and CEO, Jay Hutton for an interview in which he explained how this smart city contract goes further than what is standard.
Hutton said that while smart city solutions typically cover commercial properties, VSBLTY and Energetika are also bringing application to residential spaces.
"When you look at smart cities, often you see a focus on commercial applications," he said. "This deployment is certainly that, but in addition to that it extends the reach of the security umbrella to residences. So this becomes really compelling. Not only are you delivering security and camera capabilities, but [also] video analytics and access to city services and 9-1-1 on a mobile interface."
Another distinguishing feature of this contract is the element of collaborative security. In the press release, Hutton describes this as, "Where citizens, law enforcement and technology will work together to affect how a higher level of security is achieved." He further explained how this collaborative aspect brought residents into the security network with their consent.
"By including [residences] in that collaboration, we're extending the actual smart camera network to [them]," he said. "We're not requiring residents to buy their own camera and have their own sealed off camera network. We're now enveloping the city network that includes residences, if they wish to opt in."
Hutton pointed out however, that taking advantage of this brings clear benefits to residences.
"Of course, it's an enormous value for them if they opt in," he said. "They become part of this camera-based neighborhood watch and a collaborative environment where they're sharing video of events and crimes that may or may not be interesting to law enforcement."
At the heart of the collaboration between the two companies is the combination of Energetika's lighting infrastructure with VSBLTY's AI-inspired video analytics.
"The idea here is combining lighting with camera technology and sensor technology to provide a public good - an outcome which is security based," Hutton said.
The press release indicates that the technology is being deployed via security kits, which Energetika CEO, Rodrigo Calderon says, "Consists of high definition cameras equipped with VSBLTY facial recognition and analytics, wireless alarms, motion sensors and panic buttons integrated with high LED facade light fixtures." Hutton broke down the utility of security kits:
"A security kit is simply a light for the facade or doorway of a residence, a camera outside that doorway, a complement of sensors for door sensors and alarms, and a [mobile] application that allows for immediate access to 9-1-1 and city services - all of that combined under a single application umbrella."
Looking at the wider regional market, Hutton said that though each community has its own specific issues to address, the solutions can be applied to great effect throughout the market.
"Mexico City has its own set of unique issues, problems and speed bumps for sure, but growth is really almost a certainty," he said. "Right now the same architecture, idea, concept and approach is being proposed to other municipalities, governments and other places in Central and South America."
