Customer testimonial

“Since implementing Scylla Raid has managed to see a 98% decrease in the number of false alarms received per day, this has significantly freed up resources and improved positive detection rates. Raid has noticed that operator efficiency also became higher due to the lower number of false alarms per day. Raid Security also plans to use Scylla on all future installations to continue building on the progress already made. Scylla utilizes state-of-the-art computer-vision-based technology with impressively high accuracy. Their false alarm filtering solution is the go-to solution for data centers, video monitoring companies and security businesses who have to monitor a wide variety of places and cameras at the same time.”
