    Any thoughts on adding this? Are you using your own engine or something like Rekognition on AWS?

    It's their own ...if the were using Amazon it would be more accurate and they would be pointless.

    There are thousands of business selling their own machine vision services using Rekognition as the back end.

    Rekognition is not a consumer oriented front end. They cater to business that want to provide services just like what Sentry is doing but with productization and integration with 3rd parties.

    Again, sentry would be useless as the BI developer could do the same via rekognition. They are not providing any front end. Furthermore they would have no control of the accuracy as they claim to be making improvements. Rekognition is miles ahead of anything sentry is doing.

    I suspect your right. I've been using Rekognition with video segments and it's pretty darn good at doing hierarchical classification of objects and returning that as a nested json response but I go over the free tier every month with sending clips from two cameras.

    How much would it cost if you paid?

    I already do pay but it's a nominal amount each month and it varies.

    So what's a "nominal" amount and for how many clips/occurrences?

    The first 1000 minutes of video are free. After that it's 12 cents per minute. Sometimes I'm just under and sometimes I'm over by a couple hundred minutes so the cost can vary a lot but so far hasn't been killer. I started out using images but discovered video offered way better results.

    if you can code with C#, node or python, you can use DeepQuest AI on your own server for free and without sending your cameras images to 3rd parties. It offers several features, vehicle detection among them. Imho it is pretty damn good, especially considering that it is free.

    Also interesting regarding vidoe analysis:

    How are you submitting video to Rekognition? I’m curious about testing it out. I didn’t know if you coded something to send video from BI, or if it was as simple as sending video clips via email?
