Solution Integrates IoT and Building Automation Data to Improve
Situational Awareness and Life Safety
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AI?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AIlt;/agt;–ReconaSense today announced the latest release of its A.I.-powered
security platform for life safety and physical security, featuring risk
adaptive access control and new IoT and building automation integrations
that enable the secure flow of people, processes and information while
keeping risks at bay.
Digital transformation has increased the volume, variety and velocity of
physical security event data being collected and stored, increasing the
complexity of potential security risk factors as well as the time and
talent required to identify and manage them.
ReconaSense features one-of a-kind, A.I.-powered Neural Networking
technology that helps campuses, commercial enterprises, government
organizations and critical infrastructure identify anomalous events and
automate risk adjustments and responses in real time. Unlike legacy
physical security systems, ReconaSense can do this on a mass scale while
filtering-out irrelevant ‘noise’ and avoiding false positives.
A key component of the platform, ReconAccess
is a risk-adaptive physical access control solution that adjusts
permissions based on dynamic risk scores of personnel, assets,
environments and facilities. Data is aggregated and evaluated based on
acquired and saved knowledge, then compared to user-defined policies and
procedures to determine what is permissible vs. what is not, and when
and where to take action.
The solution runs on Mercury® hardware and integrates data
from third-party systems, authentication solutions and building
automation systems, enabling modern enterprises to proactively manage
risk across countless dynamic and interacting components.
ReconaSense facilitates intelligent access as much as it controls it.
The solution can direct people to temporary safe shelter in the event of
a natural disaster like a hurricane (correlating weather data with
building occupancy information) or activate the lights and HVAC system
when someone enters a building during off-hours.
ReconaSense can also take preventive safety and security measures as in
the case of a chemical spill, identifying the presence of dangerous
air-borne toxins, closing-off access to affected areas, and alerting
operations teams to take emergency actions.
Pre-configured risk thresholds and relationships between personnel
attributes and facility resources help to facilitate a more automated,
consistent and continuous approach to risk management, compliance,
security enforcement and business continuity.
A complete list of ReconaSense platform features includes:
AI-Assisted Risk Scoring – monitors and compares data inputs
over time to identify pattern abnormalities in physical, logical or
human behavior and proactively alert to potential risks; examples
include open/closed doors, building temperature sensors, NOAA National
Weather Service updates, etc.
Autonomous Guard Away – similar to an autopilot function,
allows security teams to pass operations to one another as needed, or
can automatically take over in emergency situations that require
Intelligent On-boarding & Access Provisioning – replace
cumbersome paper-based processes with automated workflows, enabling
security owners to easily authorize and regulate access to restricted
areas based on roles, responsibilities and requests.
“ORCA” (Operational Response Command Application) – enables
mobile access to critical operational information and the ability to
act on real-time risks and threats while on-the-go.
Web Services Integrations – provide the ability to integrate
third-party APIs and pull information such as critical infrastructure
data (nuclear facilities, airport operations, etc.) into Recon,
the A.I. unification platform.
Open Systems Compliance – provides out of the box integration
with Z-Wave for IoT devices and BACnet for building automation systems
for enhanced security and life safety monitoring.
“In typical physical security systems, alerts are based on responses to
breaches or events that have likely already taken place, putting lives
and resources in harm’s way,” said John Carter, co-founder, president
and CTO of ReconaSense. “ReconaSense with ReconAccess is the first
intelligent access control solution that measures the real-time evolving
risk of individuals, assets and environments while automatically
adjusting access permissions and step-by-step processes to avert
potential threats or disasters.”

to attend the webinar Finding Your Physical Security Blind Spots
with Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) on Thursday, March 7 at 2pm ET.
Following the webinar, ReconaSense will host the grand
opening of its new Technology Center on Fifth Avenue in New York
City, from 3-7pm ET. New York-area architects, engineers, system
integrators, security consultants and facilities managers are invited to
ReconaSense helps protect people, assets, buildings and cities with its
next-gen access control and converged physical security intelligence
platform. By leveraging artificial intelligence (AI), ReconaSense
identifies and mitigates potential threats and attacks before
they happen, giving security teams the ability to go beyond managing
data and individual alerts to achieving true situational awareness and
rapid response capabilities. Learn more at www.reconasense.com.
