Enabling smart living

Issue 3 2021 Smart Home Automation, Integrated Solutions

The rapid development of IoT, AI and mobile technology is changing our work and lifestyles. As these technologies are increasingly applied to commercial and residential buildings, smart living is no longer a fantasy. However, traditional residential solutions are usually operated by multiple independent systems, resulting in time-consuming management and an unpleasant living experience.

The Dahua Intelligent Residential Solution (DIRS) aims to achieve smart security, smart living and smart property management by using a combination of cutting-edge technologies. While taking living experience to a brand new level, it creates a win-win situation for residents, property management companies and real estate developers.

AI-enabled smart security

DIRS incorporates the company’s AI offerings, panoramic, fish-eye cameras and other advanced equipment to provide targeted security monitoring for different scenes in residential areas. For perimeter areas that are vulnerable to intrusions and threats, the AI perimeter camera that features target classification and precise alarm functions can accurately detect unauthorised people and vehicles entering restricted areas. Combined with an active deterrence function, it can effectively prevent incidents from happening.

For vandalism and illegal activities in public areas, cameras equipped with AI functions support a variety of intelligent detection algorithms with real-time alarms that can assist property managers in quickly locating hidden dangers and abnormal incidents, such as fire exit blockage, high-altitude throwing, illegal parking, etc. While providing multi-layer protection, the AI-powered solution can significantly improve management efficiency and promote an harmonious and orderly living environment.

Touchless and mobile smart living

In order to create better user experience, the solution integrates a myriad recognition technologies such as facial recognition, ANPR, QR code recognition, fingerprint recognition etc., achieving touchless and efficient access control for both people and vehicles. It allows property owners to freely enter the lobby, parking lot and public facilities through flexible options in case they forgot to bring their key or access card.

Additionally, it improves the security of areas where privacy is required. For instance, only owners and authorised visitors are allowed to enter the elevator and go to their desired floors. At the same time, visitors can make appointment via the mobile app and scan the QR code shared by the owner to enter the lobby and parking lot instead of waiting for on-site registration, greatly increasing traffic efficiency.

Moreover, the mobile app also supports visual communication, call transfer, real-time alarm, video monitoring, remote door opening, etc. Anywhere and anytime, owners are able to make video calls with guests, or call security personnel for help.

Integrated, efficient and smart property management

The Dahua video intercom system provides an interconnected platform for property managers to simplify operations and improve management efficiency. In particular, it enables online management of multiple systems and one-click information publishing to optimise property services. A licence plate recognition camera integrated with video intercom deployed at the parking entrance requires no separate guard box. It assists remote and visual management of properties and improves the services and facilities offered in the residential community.
