PARALLEL INTRODUCES VAPING DETECTION SOLUTION

Vaping by U.S. teenagers has reached epidemic levels. School administrators and teachers are on the front lines - battling the vaping epidemic in the classrooms and hallways of our nation's schools. Until now, vaping has been virtually impossible to detectable and easy to conceal. Working with IPVideo Corp., Parallel engineers have developed a solution that integrates into a school's existing video surveillance system and building automation system to immediately alert administrators when vaping is detected . The solution is designed to detect the unique chemical signature released from vaping devices. Installed in classrooms, bathrooms, locker rooms and hallways, the solution can also be used to detect smoke and loud noises such as glass breaking or gunshots.

Featuring the latest technology for intelligent building and reliable data centers (including BAS, video surveillance, card access, DAS and vape detection), the lab offers clients the opportunity to see how the solutions work in real-world scenarios. 
2020: VIDEO ANALYTICS UPDATE

The surge of surveillance cameras is due in large part to the advances in the analytics that help users to have a better understanding of what's happening in locations being monitored by video cameras. Today's video analytics are empowering organizations to use video surveillance in a more proactive manner rather than just being reactive and viewing video after the fact.  In a recent blog post , we explore how the technology is evolving and what you need to know when considering this technology.
