You Call on the Security Professionals at Evolon

In the heart of downtown Houston lies Discovery Green, a beautiful 12-acre urban park. It hosts an array of events, including festivals, fairs, and concerts-and offers a tranquil lake, walking trails, and cafés for city residents to enjoy all year long. But due to its limited lighting, Discovery Green had become a haven for criminal activity after dark. City officials knew they needed to increase security with an innovative solution. They needed the security professionals Evolon.

Fortunately, Houston was already familiar with Evolon’s offerings. They successfully deployed Evolon Edge™ during Super Bowl LI week in 2017 to detect people and vehicles in off-limits areas surrounding the football stadium. As a result, Houston officials knew which company to rely on to enhance security and keep its citizens safe while enjoying Discovery Green Park — Evolon.

Evolon Edge is a Gamer Changer

Evolon Edge™, which was created specifically to integrate with Axis cameras, provides edge-based, real-time detection objects of interest with fewer false alarms. Edge delivers the widest range of perimeter coverage and deployment flexibility, significantly improving the ability to rapidly detect and track multiple individuals or events by adding an IP-controlled PTZ camera.

“The Evolon solution enables us to quickly and accurately deploy real-time video analytics that can alert, identify and auto-track people and vehicles that might otherwise be missed by a human operator,” says Jack Hanagriff of the Mayor of Houston’s Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security.

“The major difference with the Evolon software compared with other solutions we have tried is the high degree of accuracy at great distances, says David Madrigal, CEO of TEKSYS, the company that installed the system. “Typical analytics are only accurate to about 200 feet. We’ve successfully tested Evolon Edge at ranges up to one mile. That means fewer cameras and less infrastructure needs to be deployed, saving customers time and money.”

Protecting Critical Infrastructures, Creating Safer Cities

Protecting both people and property in a large urban environment can be extremely challenging. Police and security officers are limited by how much area they can cover, and the manpower required to proactively monitor the surveillance cameras in place can be cost-prohibitive.

Evolon Edge provides the perfect solution.

Built specifically to integrate with Axis cameras, Edge provides real-time detection of objects of interest with fewer false alarms. It delivers the widest range of perimeter coverage and deployment flexibility, significantly improving the ability to rapidly detect and track multiple intruders or events by adding an IP-controlled PTZ camera. It’s the game-changing security solution that cities and industries have been waiting for — and it’s available right now.
