Genetec Stratocast / Comcast 'Motion Insights' Examined

By: Sean Patton, Published on Aug 15, 2018

Comcast recently announced "SmartOffice Motion Insights", an extension to their Genetec OEMed cloud video service (covered by IPVM here).

This follows a trend. For example, at ISC West 2018, Alarm.com, Axis, Eagle Eye Networks, and others were marketing solutions using security cameras to provide business data analytics to SMB customers. 

Now, an update to Genetec's Stratocast platform adds similar functionality to what Comcast OEMed version released.

In this note, we examine what it is, how it works, and how it compares to Alarm.com, Axis and Eagle Eye.
