Historically, security management has relied on a Security Operation Center (SOC) to protect people, property and assets, mitigating overall risks and liabilities. Security systems are designed so that a SOC is notified whenever an alarm occurs. Based on SOC procedures, each notification may require between 2 and 10 minutes of the operator’s time to verify the alarm, initiate video verification to observe activity, and in some cases dispatch a security officer to the source of the alarm to investigate. With hundreds-to-thousands of such alarms every day, large organizations bear significant costs for this time and effort, or accept elevated risks and liabilities if limited resources are unable to review every alarm.

An analysis of the security marketplace has shown that 80-90% of all alarms are either false-positives or nuisance alarms. Reducing the number of these false alarms will have an immediate positive impact on security operations and budgets, both in terms of reduced investigation costs and increased attention to legitimate alarms.
