Genetec Kiwi Intrusion Detector Analytics Tested

By Rob Kilpatrick, Published on Nov 27, 2018

Genetec has built Kiwi Security's Intrusion Detection analytics into Security Center, aiming to simplify deployment compared to separate camera based analytics.

ipvm tested

We tested Intrustion Detector to see how this compared against leaders from our IP Camera Analytics Shootout, examining:

  • Configuration and calibration requirements
  • Outdoor false alert performance
  • Snow/rain false alert filtering
  • Indoor false alert performance
  • Detection range/PPF requirements
  • CPU/GPU load impact
