Video surveillance has been used for jobsite monitoring for decades but rarely has met its full potential as a deterrent, loss prevention tool, criminal evidence, safety system or supervisory tool. While resolution improved dramatically with the introduction of digital cameras, the age old problem of intelligently capturing relevant content continues. The principal purpose of video surveillance is to capture "people activity." Obviously a property owner is going to be interested in "people activity" in a space where nobody is supposed to be. Spaces within a facility that are restricted to authorized personnel are also areas where "people activity" is of interest. Of course open storage areas like car lots or equipment lots pose special vulnerabilities being outside the protection of four walls and a lock. But hours, days or even months can pass before any legitimate "people activity" of interest occurs. The challenge has always been identifying the activity of interest and then, and only then, recording it.
