|Intelligent Alarm project utilizes Vision AI DevKit to create captures of persons arriving to monitored area. These captures are further processed using Face API in order to identify entrants, while processing results can be surfaced thru chat bot. Intelligent Alarm is also capable of alert invocation either as chat bot proactive message or thru SMS.|
These capabilities make this project perfect base for example for automated card/chip less attendance systems with alerting capabilities or even as the name says for alarm solution :).|
In comparison to DevKit Integration with Azure Face API Services project this solutions implements different way of image capture on Vision AI DevKit (using node.js). It also utilizes cloud for further image processing and data storing and it provides alerting and presentation layer built using Conversational AI. On the contrary DevKit Integration with Azure Face API Services project meant to deliver standalone edge device capable of Face API invocation.
There are two important parts to the solution. First is intelligent edge device - Vision AI DevKit. Thanks to default custom vision model, it is capable (almost out of the box) to detect persons. If such event occurs, it captures the image and uploads it to Azure Storage for further processing (face identification). |
Second part to the solution is cloud based backend and presentation layer. Backend, built using Azure Functions and Cosmos DB, is responsible for further image analysis, data storing and data access. Presentation layer is built as conversational AI interface using Bot Framework.
