Standard Video Monitoring vs Video Analytics


A security system with video monitoring can show you everything that happens at your property, from every angle. That’s a lot of information—and sometimes, it’s too much.

Forest Security’s video analytics technology gives you a different experience. You’ll see the events that matter, without needing to see everything else.

Our video analytics can spot the difference between important events and other activity in real time, and filter your video alerts according to your preferences. You can set up smarter video alerts for specific types of activity, and even customize how your home responds to them.



With video analytics, you’ll spot the difference


Video analytics can tell whether an object in your driveway is a person, an animal or a vehicle. It can ignore a person who walks past your house, but alert you when someone stands outside your front door.

You can create “tripwire” alerts to capture people entering or leaving your property, and “ground zone” alerts to capture activity in tightly-defined areas like doorways.

What you see is up to you, because you can customize your video analytics alerts to focus on the events that matter to you.


Person, Animal, Vehicle… It knows the Difference.

Video Analytics allows you to get smarter video alerts on things that matters to you. It actively detects and distinguishes between people, animals and vehicles to reduce nuisance alerts. Combine that with virtual tripwires and fenced-in activity zones, you can enhance your perimeter security.

What Triggers an Alert?

Once a person, vehicle or animal is detected, customers receive an alert with a thumbnail image of what was caught on camera. You control what should trigger a video alert and what can be ignored.

For example, when a:

  • Person enters their yard at night, but not animals
  • Car pulls into your driveway, but not when it drives by
  • Pet gets on the sofa, but not when it walks around the room
  • Person loiters on their porch, but not when mail is delivered

More clips Increase Awareness

The Forest Pro Video with Analytics package includes 3,000 video clips per month. That’s three times more than other service plans so you are sure to get all the informative clips you will need.

Reduce False Alerts

Video Analytics helps reduce nuisance alerts and false notifications from shadows, rain and other non-actionable motion.

Automate Lights – Deter Crime

Deter unwanted intruders from approaching your property by having your lights turn on when a car, person or animal is detected by the camera giving the illusion that you are home, even if you are not. Most break-ins occur when no one is at home so, stop crime before it happens.
