June 2015 / Security Dealer & Integrator 21 Request information: Audio analytics: Louroe Electronics unveiled its Aggression Detector, the frst implementation I have seen of audio analytics used to infer aggressive tone patterns in an audio stream to warn of impending danger. To date, audio analytics has only been used in glass break detec- tors and gunshot locators. Te result of a partnership with European devel- oper Sound Intelligence, the Louroe product analyzes not what is said but how it is said — looking for aggres- sion, anger, or fear. Te Louroe GUI allows for the set- ting of thresholds for noise and alarm triggering, as well as presenting a color map representing tension in the sound signature. Te system is inte- grated with select Axis cameras and most major VMS sofware providers. Te company claims an accuracy rate better than 98 percent. "For years, the industry has looked to video analyt- ics as the go to solution in security, but 90 percent of physical aggres- sion is preceded by audio aggression," explains Louroe CEO Richard Brent. Upstart watch: It is always interesting to spot emerging upstart companies who are try- ing to get established in the secu- rity marketplace. Kansas City- based Coprometro's Stone Lock Pro product employs near infrared waves refected of a human face to measure 2000 individual points in less than one second. Refection can occur of the skin and sub-dermally, creating a profle for which there are no known spoofng techniques. Te enrollment process takes about 15 seconds, and the system can easily capture multi-factor authentication. Some of the brightest minds I know in the industry have been intrigued by Coprometro's technology. Feenics is the child of Canada- based Future Security Controls — acquired by Convergint in December 2013. Te founder was apparently able to spin this access control product of as a separate company, afer numerous installations of this product within its own customer base. Having recruited some ex-Lenel stafers, the company displays a mature understanding of market needs and trends. Its product is avail- able as a cloud managed services or private label ofering, or as an enter- prise sofware package, and sports a nicely developed user interface. ■ » Ray Coulombe is Founder and Managing Director of SecuritySpecifers. com and He can be reached at or followed on Twitter: @RayCoulombe.
