Remote Monitoring with Ai

Remote Monitoring with Ai

Barn Owl Ai

With Barn Owl Ai, you can now set alerts to trigger when images include objects such as people, vehicles, and animals. We designed Barn Owl Ai to help reduce the number of unwanted alerts you receive while continuing to keep you informed when issues need your attention.

The Problem we set out to Solve

Cameras designed for remote monitoring are great at capturing anything and everything. The downside is that individuals tasked with managing alerts and updates from multiple cameras, projects, and locations become inundated with too many images (noise). Images that do not contain any relevant information.

With Barn Owl Ai, we set out to reduce the noise and introduce the benefits of remote monitoring with Ai capabilities.

Who can benefit from Remote Monitoring with Ai?

We built Version 1.0 of Barn Owl Ai to work for multiple use cases. If you are monitoring an access gate on a ranch, Barn Owl Ai will alert you when a vehicle or person enters or exits. If you are hunting, Barn Owl Ai will alert you when an animal is in view. If monitoring your property for trespassers, Barn Owl Ai will alert you when a person is present.

As our remote monitoring with ai capabilities expand, we expect to introduce more granular controls and make the system smarter by enhancing the object identification features.

Barn Owl Ai Benefits:

  • Alerts When They Matter: You can now create alerts that only trigger when specific objects are identified. You can choose from Animals, People, or Vehicles.
  • Remove the Noise: With Barn Owl Ai, you only receive alerts when something is worth your attention.
  • Manage Your Data: When you activate Barn Owl Ai, you can quickly filter through your photos and highlight those that have identifiable objects.

How does Barn Owl Ai work?

When you activate the Ai feature on your camera, your camera will automatically begin capturing images with all three tags available: People, Vehicles, and Animals. You then have the option to set your alert settings to trigger based on one of those three tags or any combination of each. And in your camera gallery, you will also see those three tags available within your filtering options for easy management.

- People, Animal, and Vehicle Detection

Barn Owl Ai can identify objects within an image. In our first release, the Ai recognizes objects such as People, Animals, and Vehicles. The Ai will not identify specific details such as types of vehicles, animal species, and animal type.

Let's say you have a camera placed at a job site and want to be alerted whenever a vehicle comes into view of the camera. With the motion trigger set to "on," and the Ai set to trigger on "Vehicles," the camera will take an image each time it senses movement. Barn Owl Ai will then scan the images and if a vehicle is detected, you will receive an alert. This all happens in a matter of seconds.

- Historical Image Filtering

Currently, Barn Owl Ai will not filter images that were taken without Ai being turned on.
