This is very cool, amidst all the Coronavirus craziness. I hope people see this. I also hope the company things hard about pivoting to the commercial space where I think these features would be even higher valued.

Note that Visual One includes far more object type definitions than most analytics, such as couch, clock, dining table, baseball bat, bear, bowl, etc

Update: We previously listed pricing as $6.99 per month. This is for events viewing and storage, and the analytics is an annual subscription for $300-500 per camera/channel.
