Amaryllo launches biometric security camera with voice recognition
Dutch robotics and biometric security company Amaryllo has won a 2020 CES Innovation Award in the event’s Smart Home and Smart Cities categories for Athena, an innovative biometric security camera that is the world’s first with voiceprint technologies, according to a company announcement.
Athena uses object and facial recognition and patent-pending voiceprint technologies to protect assets which in the past required a lot of equipment and resources. Athena leverages voiceprint technology to convert human voices into unique audio signatures for identity identification. The robotic camera can accurately analyze background voices and identity people, the company says, and is equipped with military grade 256-bit encryption technologies.
Amaryllo explains Athena uses proprietary algorithms to not only recognize facial features, but also vehicles in real time which helps it reduce the number of false alarms.
“We are delighted to be recognized as a 2020 CES Innovation Award winner,” said Leticia Gogel, PR director of Amaryllo. “At Amaryllo, the goal is to make homeland security safer and more reliable. Athena is an exciting step closer to our vision of bringing fully autonomous homeland security to consumers.”
The CES Innovation Awards is an annual event that recognizes innovation in consumer technology products. The next event takes place in Las Vegas between January 7 and 10.
The international market for surveillance cameras with biometric capabilities could be significantly shaken up by the recent inclusion of several leading global suppliers from China on the U.S. government’s Entity List.
