Guardian Eye, an Internet of Things-enabled remote monitoring and surveillance service provider, and Lytehouse, an intuitive security platform that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to provide real-time threat detection for any CCTV camera, have partnered to provide a holistic security offering that overcomes the fragmentation of security systems and services.

The collaboration offers an intelligently layered solution that combines sensors, security cameras, devices and AI verification, to deliver complete visibility to security teams while reducing alert fatigue and false alarms.

Lytehouse was established to overcome a very specific challenge – the 99% false alarm rate from traditional security sensors that creates a lack of visibility into real events, and the inability of security providers to scale more sophisticated video analytics solutions. Often these false alarms cripple security teams and lead to poor response times and high operational costs. The solution Lytehouse developed was designed to empower decision-making, reduce alert fatigue, and make next generation video analytics accessible to local businesses in emerging markets.

“The problem starts with reducing false alarms and is solved by deeper, more comprehensive video analysis in the control room,” emphasises Natalie Doran, CEO and Co-founder of Lytehouse. “The majority of video analytics solutions are expensive – built for enterprises and developed markets. We wanted to provide control rooms with scalable technology that becomes the connective tissue between hardware and manpower, a single pane of glass that notifies the right people with the best information in the fastest time.”

Lytehouse was purpose-built for the South African market, providing a tailored solution that meets local needs and challenges. It offers proactive and preventative visibility, seamless integration with multiple systems, and addresses the unique challenges South African businesses face, while remaining accessible and scalable.

“This technology provides people with peace of mind, providing them with immediate visibility into alarm triggers and allowing them the flexibility to detect the threats so they can make more informed decisions. Our technology is constantly evolving to provide security and business insights from any infrastructure with relevant and easily managed alerts,” says Doran.

This vision – to build something that can overcome challenges within the South African market and still deliver innovative intelligence – is shared with Guardian Eye. Combining the smart capabilities of Lytehouse with the agile, AI and IoT-driven security solutions from Guardian Eye takes the pressure off security teams and systems. It reduces alarm fatigue and frustration, while allowing users to gain richer control over their environments.

“At a time when crime remains high, and people are concerned for the safety of their families, homes and offices, security needs to be a value-add, not another thing to manage,” says Rodney Taylor, MD of Guardian Eye. “We felt that partnering with Lytehouse would help us change the security narrative by introducing long-term change through technology.”

Guardian Eye provides various remote monitoring, surveillance and analytics solutions that can be customised to suit very specific security expectations. Intelligent and powerful, the combination of Lytehouse and Guardian Eye maximises security infrastructure and brings all the pieces together in a holistic and integrated ecosystem.

“Our solutions are easily installed and integrated,” concludes Taylor. “Together with Lytehouse, we offer powerful analytics, robust false alarm filtering and next generation technologies that transform your security investments.”
