Snap One updates Control 4 with AI

Luma Insights, a new AI-based surveillance solution for Control4 customers leverages AI to enhance Luma cameras as well as the Control4 Chime inside a customer’s Control4 System.

Luma Insights enables seven-days of cloud-storage for snapshots and video clips of surveillance-triggered events which customers can access locally through their Control4 touchscreens and remotely via Control4 App for iOS or Android. These ‘triggered events’ automatically generate a link and an image of the event, which are both added to a notification and pushed to the owner's mobile device. Tapping the notification will link the customer deep into the Control4 app, either taking them to a live feed if the event is ongoing or to immediate playback of the event with options to view more events, go to live view, or immediately share the event.

Empowered by the Hailo-8 edge AI accelerator, each Luma Bridge device can process up to four camera streams in real-time and features up to 26 tera-operations per second. The Luma Bridge automatically scans the network and Control4 system and displays a list of compatible cameras that are connected to both. As soon as the Bridge devices are connected and the Partner chooses up to four areas of interest within each camera’s frame for extra focus.

When a notification is sent, end-users also have the ability to quickly share snapshots or videos or mark an event as a false positive. The service will know whether users have already been alerted of an event, so event aggregation suppresses subsequent notifications, but not recordings.

Dereck Webb, Snap One surveillance product manager, said: “Artificial intelligence software is creating new opportunities and capabilities across a broad range of devices, including security and surveillance where it can enhance detection of security events and provide greater peace of mind for users and partners alike. Our focus here is on enhancing the Control4 experience by delivering new highly-anticipated features including surveillance based playback, automatic and dynamic notifications all inside of Control4 using the AI of Luma Insights. Our longer-term goal is to continue making it easy for Partners to update existing systems without needing to engage in costly and intrusive system overhauls.”
