Installing Robotics Security Systems

Main pageInstallation

Installation of robots at a guarded facility solves two tasks: laying of patrol routes and integrating security robots into an existing video surveillance system.

Subject to the task, a robot may patrol the premises to detect humans and alarm the operator if a human being appears. If a robot is connected to a face recognition server, the system will enable human recognition and gives an alarm in case of trespassing.

The robot’s integration into the security system is accompanied by software tweaking, and generally requires no additional equipment to be installed.

Installation of automatic motion control and automatic patrolling system requires deployment of additional equipment for communications and automatic charging of robot’s batteries. Apart from that, reliable operation of a robot needs a test period to refine the travel in the patrol route and select optimal observation positions. It generally takes about a week.

SMP Robotics professionals perform all the work to install robots at a guarded facility. The operating robots are tracked by local staff that completed a training at SMP Robotics. The Virtual Monitoring Center of SMP Robotics maintains remote control of robot condition and informs the local operating personnel if physical interference is needed.



ONVIF Integrated Security Monitoring

Integrated Security Solutions

In some cases, it is advisable integrating the security robots into the existing stationary video surveillance system. With this goal in mind, the robot's intelligent video surveillance system supports ONVIF communication protocol. Integrating the robot in the VMS allows using standard data exchange feature between ONVIF devices. For the ONVIF Video Management System, interacting with a security robot is similar to how a conventional ONVIF video server serving six AHD cameras works.

The Video Management System operator can monitor video six surveillance cameras

If a human appears on the video, the on-board video analytics system sends an alarm to the VMS operator and highlights the detected person. The on-board video server supports the edge recording mode from ONVIF Profile G. This function allows buffering video data transmission. When using wireless communication channels, it is difficult to guarantee uninterrupted broadband access, and signal can fade out or become disrupted. Edge recording mode helps ensuring uninterrupted video surveillance.

There is no need to upgrade the Video Management System software

One of the video streams transmitted by the robot displays a map of the facility and the robot's location on it. When using this solution, there is no need to upgrade the Video Management System software in the control center. The VMS operator will be able to see the robot's current condition and its direction of movement, along with other video streams from the CCTV cameras.

Mobile Software for Security Robots

Mobile Software for Security Robots

In order to remotely control the robots and give notifications about the changes in the operation modes, there exists a software solution called Security Robot Messenger. This application uses Telegram instant messaging service to inform the robot's users when a person is detected, or when the robot makes an unscheduled stop, or about its health; it permits playing an audible warning phrase, or switching to an intercom to speak with a person located beside the robot. This service makes the robot convenient to operate, both for security officers located directly on the facility's premises and for a security supervisor located somewhere else.

Multi-Robot System Virtual Monitoring and Control

Multi-Robot System Virtual Monitoring and Control

While operating the robot, you can substantially cut costs by subscribing to the Virtual Monitoring Control service. In this case, our engineering team will continuously monitor the operation of the robots in order to minimize downtime. If necessary, they will make minor adjustments remotely, and streamline the robots' patrolling routes. In case any problem arises that cannot be resolved remotely, the robot owner's local technical personnel will be informed, and recommendations regarding troubleshooting the robot on-site will be made. Remote evaluation of the robot's hardware condition helps ordering spare parts on time, and performing swift maintenance work on the robot.

Privacy Protection in Video Surveillance System

We are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers. Neither the team that provides support for Virtual Monitoring Control nor local service personnel have access to videos from the CCTV cameras. Moreover, encrypted VPN traffic is used when transmitting videos from the security cameras via public networks. VPN permits reliably protecting video data from unauthorized access.

Safe Cloud Storage for Patrolling Routes

The Virtual Monitoring Control service stores the patrolling routes and data from the navigation systems in a cloud data storage. This allows improving navigation by choosing the best routes, and ensuring that the routes remain uncompromised, regardless of the integrity of any specific robot. Besides that, when installing a new robot on a route there is no need to train it: just copying the route from cloud storage is enough.
