TIME PERIODS FOR VISITORS & DELIVERIES AS A SAFETY PROCEDURE
not just locks and guards, it is also a set of procedures designed to
keep the building safe. With some simple scheduling procedures in
place, you can ensure a manageable level of security for your
building, employees and visitors. Here are some simple steps to
deliveries for a specific time period each day or day of
the week. Make sure you notify vendors and courier services of
this schedule, and that it will be strictly adhered to it.
Most delivery companies can modify their route around your
schedule. Don't accept deliveries outside of these hours.
your hours where they are visible. Make sure they are on
all gates, entry ways and exterior doors.
a time frame for visitors to be allowed on the premises. This
cuts down on unexpected entries to the premises. Do not allow
visitors to be there outside this specific time frame.
a specific time for employees to be at work. Anyone working
outside those hours will require prior clearance to be on
vendors who visit to schedule an appointment at least
a few days in advance. Warn them that non-company personnel are
only allowed on site during specific times. If they really want
your business, they will be more than happy to adhere to your
THE LATEST IN
RESIDENTIAL SECURITY GADGETS
We all love
gadgets. Here are some of the newest things in home security
Powered Wireless Window Sensor Systems:
While some security systems today use wireless window chimes that
alert you when windows are opened, advanced window sensors are being
developed that take window security technology a step further. These
sensors are solar powered and can be monitored by a smart phone.
Audio Sensors: Vibration and motion
sensors currently on the market have a tendency to produce false
alarms due to being overly
sensitive. New systems are being developed where the sensors will
know the difference between normal noises and such events as
shattering glass. These new monitors will cut down on false
Recognition: Prone to mis-entered
alarm codes? How about a panel that you can speak to? On
the horizon, is a home security control panel that allows you to
verbally enter your code, change settings, as well as arm, and disarm
the system. Technology that will ensure the
right persons are making these changes, is
also in the works.
Passive IR Sensors: Motion activated
flood lights outside the home are pretty much a security system
standard. The latest technology, are passive infrared motion detectors,
that will also activate lights inside your home. This concept
is to make the burglars think someone is home.
Detectors: Doing exactly what they sound
like - they detect each and every footstep. So anytime someone new
sets foot on your
property, the security system is triggered,
and cameras are immediately focused on the location of the
intruder. But since these systems can cost around $30,000, they're
not expected to be affordable for the average home application
NEW SOFTWARE TEACHES
COMPUTERS TO RECOGNIZE 3D HUMANS IN FLAT PHOTOS
Deva Ramanan, a computer scientist at University of
California at Irvine, has developed new software that trains
computers to recognize three-dimensional humans in flat photographs.
While facial recognition software is nothing new, detecting the human
body is. When the computer "sees" a video or photo, it can
render legs, torso, upper arms, and forearms, all distinguished by different
for a computer to do this is especially challenging because of the
endless combinations of poses, angles, sizes, and outfits that are of
humans. Where most computers are fed millions of images to memorize,
thus building a vast data base, Ramanan's
program, instead, trains the system to identify body parts and match
them to a flexible human template. Using a "divide and
conquer" approach, the software runs through a checklist of body
parts and matches them very quickly, using much less processing power
than traditional programs.
sees a future for many potential applications for his people-finding
algorithms. Some include fast and accurate pedestrian-detection
systems in self-driving cars and videogame systems that track
full-body movements. Meanwhile, he's focusing his research on
teaching computers how to read and understand context, in other
words, to think.
