Sighthound has been working on video analytics since at lease 2013 when it acquired Vitamin D. The current version (5) (priced at 250) promises people detection to eliminate false alarms. This has not been very accurate according to users on their forum. The vms itself has limited basic functionally such as not being able to easily disable alerts when you are home. (other basic functions were recently added like allowing a matrix camera view). Sighthound has been spending millions working on its cloud API. This promises face recognition, vehicle make model and plate recognition and more. Face Recognition, Vehicle Recognition, Face Detection & Person Detection API' The cloud API is NOT integrated in version 5 of the VMS. However, the folks at Sighthound have indicated that Version 6.0 is coming soon and will have its Computer Vision platform integrated. There is no indication of the pricing model, however, if its anything close to the current model, it will allow end users to have some powerful analytic tools at their disposal. The real question is how accurate will it be. A linux version should also be available.
