AI is changing all aspects of human life. If you do not believe it, then just give it a maximum of 20 years and see, we will have machines doing almost all human tasks. Security has been an issue for so long and very many strategies have been put in place to help manage it as a part of human living. Many technologies have been developed over time, some failing, some succeeding. Kuna AI, one of the most embraced AI home security solutions, is a trendsetter when it comes to using AI to improve security and change human life for good. So how can AI be used in security and how does it work?
- Capture images or motion
AI can be effectively used to identify people and other objects, then with time machine learning the gadgets can be taught to know people and alert their users when strangers or trespassers are approaching. Sounds easy and direct, right? Well, it is not easy. For starters, there need gadgets that have optical sensors. These gadgets, such as cameras, will be tasked with the responsibility of capturing data and transmitting it to the required database. Also, we can have motion sensors that will pick up unusual movements when activated. This is the first point in a lengthy (but short) procedure of pumping up home security.
After that, the data collected by the optical sensors as well as the motion sensors will be transmitted into a database: often preloaded with data that can be compared to the data being input. This will help in identifying who is securely allowed to enter the premise and who is not. Also, the technology can be able to distinguish different objects from each other. For instance, the system will be able to identify objects such as cars, dogs or other home items, objects or animals and differentiate even their motions to ensure maximum safety
- Processing and Learning
With deep learning, these gadgets are fixed with neural networks that help the machine have human-like processing, understanding and therefore enabling it to ‘learn’ and therefore conclusively make viable decisions. Simply put, these security systems are able to process data that they get overtime, analyse patterns and make deductions that can help in it making decisions. For instance, your AI Security system can be able to overtime process data with images of the homeowners and therefore automatically unlock the house when the owners approach. Sounds pretty cool, right?
- IoT (Internet of Things)
IoT will tie all this things together, if we are going to have locks that are automated based on data from cameras and motion sensors and eventually sending alerts to home users and security ccompanies, then we will need all these gadgets linked to one another. And that is where Internet of Things (IoT) comes in. With Internet of Things, all these gadgets are linked to one another, in a private and secure environment, often with end to end encryption.
So, when the cameras pick up images of an intruder, it will compare with its ‘learnt’ data or preadded data in the database and confirm whether this person are verified or not, based on the protocols and algorithms used. After the security system has determined that this is an intruder, it will lock the door, send an alert to the homeowner and the security firm concerned. This will help deny the intruder access to the premise, send alerts to the relevant people for action to be taken. So, this will greatly reduce break-ins as it will not only discourage intruders from trespassing but will also apprehend any individuals who attempt.
