MQTT is likely to play a great role in the realization of smart city goals. Learn about the potential benefits of integrating MQTT into video surveillance
In the IoT business, MQTT is a standard protocol, and Sensative’s integration platform speaks to it natively. With the MQTT ACAP software in the camera, we can extract an event/alarm – meaning utilizing the camera purely as an IoT sensor – without us ever accessing the video stream, which could be highly sensitive.
For example, we now use Axis cameras for people counting in office environments for facility management and COVID-19 related monitoring – everything is integrated in real-time into the Building Management Systems.
Using MQTT simplifies the complexity of configuring IP-networks for two-way communication and lowers the load on servers by reducing data overhead.
