Can Artificial Intelligence Keep Your Home Secure?

Edgeworth Security CEO Ken Young was interviewed by The New York Times about the positive impact Edgeworth’s Remote Guarding, featuring state of the art technology and artificial intelligence, is having on securing our client’s homes and businesses. Edgeworth is disrupting the security industry by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to proactively secure people and properties.

Several active Edgeworth clients shared their Remote Guarding success stories with the Times. Tom Gallagher, president of DSL Construction, said installing Remote Guarding at all of the company’s properties would save half a million dollars annually in security costs while achieving superior results. The story also outlined how Edgeworth’s Remote Guarding recently stopped an attempted home invasion at Sophia Vergara and Joe Manganiello’s California residence.

Artificial intelligence, they say, can see more things faster than systems that rely on humans, who may not be paying attention. “We put in the cameras to create a perimeter with no dead zones,” said Ken Young, chief executive of Edgeworth Security.

To protect a property, these systems use technology like geofencing, facial recognition and A.I.-enabled cameras to help identify intruders. If someone breaks that boundary, the cameras will alert a command center. If someone loiters too long at a call box at the entrance to an estate, the system sends an alert to the monitoring center, which responds with a tailored warning, like “You in the blue shirt, please leave.” Mr. Young said the system uses artificial intelligence to tell the difference between movement into and out of a property, but it also uses facial recognition technology to distinguish regular visitors — like gardeners or delivery people — from strangers.
