Make Your Existing Cameras Smarter with Pelco Calipsa

by Teddi Strassburger on June 23, 2023

Security Camera Interior BuildingDid you know that there is a way to turn simple, motion-only cameras into smart, optimized cameras? There is, and it's called Calipsa. Pelco's Calipsa solution is a way to get upgraded features, like real-time people and vehicle detection, without having to purchase and install brand-new cameras. With deep learning technology, your existing cameras are transformed into an AI-based CCTV security system with all the benefits you would expect, like fewer false alarms, tampering checks, and camera health data at your fingertips. 

Pelco offers four Calipsa solutions to ensure you get the features you need. All of the solutions give you access to some great features, like: 

  • Camera Masking
    • Draw masks on the camera view to outline areas of disinterest that the camera may pick up, like roads. Calipsa will filter them out for you! 
  • Scheduling
    • Streamline your monitoring efforts with custom schedules, which you can set up on a site-by-site basis. 
  • Site Sharing 
    • Give your team access to the information they need by sharing selected sites with operators and security personnel. 
  • Mobile App 
    • Access valuable data, like notifications and alarm history, and easily arm or disarm your sites wherever you are with the mobile app. 
  • Reports
    • Get automatic reports sent right to your inbox, and view snapshots of Calipsa's activity over specific time periods whenever you want. 

Looking now at those four Pelco Calipsa solutions we mentioned...

  • Pelco Calipsa Basic
    • Calipsa Basic includes ALL of the above! It gives you access to cloud-based intelligence, reduces false alarms and gives you more time to focus on what matters most. It's easy to set up, and you don't need to purchase any additional hardware! 
  • Pelco Calipsa Basic+ 
    • Calipsa Basic+ expands what you get with Basic to include Camera Health checks. Use these checks to ensure efficient operations 24/7 and reduce your maintenance costs. You don't need to manually check every camera; simply use the daily reports to track when a camera has been moved or needs cleaning, or if the view has been obstructed for an extended time. 
  • Pelco Calipsa Core
    • Calipsa Core allows you to access additional analytic capabilities beyond basic human and vehicle detection. You'll get notifications of suspicious loitering behavior and crowd-forming situations, alerts when your watchlist criteria has been met, and updates of count-based alerts of humans and vehicles in a scene. You can define your region of interest to narrow in on the data you need to see. 
  • Pelco Calipsa Pro 
    • Calipsa Pro turns your video analytics solution into a powerful, cloud-based forensic analysis search tool. You get access to incredible features, like the ability to search for events containing similar objects or events across multiple cameras. All of your results will display - within seconds - in a summarized timeline, enabling the quick location of a situation or object of interest.
