If you do not see the answer you are looking for, contact our experts.

  • Sighthound Cameras are specifically designed for outdoor surveillance and parking lot applications, offering a rugged IP67-rated design that can withstand harsh environments. With customizable lens options, they provide excellent coverage and deliver high-quality images. Sighthound Cameras can be easily mounted on parking lot light poles, at entry points of parking lots or garages, and in other strategic locations. Their advanced features include license plate recognition, vehicle, and people detection, counting, and tracking, enabling enhanced security, efficient space management, and improved traffic management.

  • Yes! With the Sighthound Node, you can transform your existing non-smart network camera into an intelligent device. Sighthound Node integrates seamlessly with your deployed camera by processing the RTSP stream in real-time and providing real-time results at the edge.

    This allows you to enhance your existing camera infrastructure and gain valuable insights without the need for costly camera replacements.

  • Yes! Sighthound Cameras are built on Nvidia modules and run a Linux-based software stack with the capability to run dockerized containers. This allows you to deploy and run your software directly on the camera.

    You can leverage the real-time stream provided by the onboard lens to capture and process data in real-time. This opens up possibilities for a wide range of applications, such as real-time event detection, object tracking, and custom analytics.

  • Our hardware solutions are built with ease of integration in mind, allowing for seamless deployment and minimal disruption to your operations.

    The devices support standard network protocols and are compatible with the most common, if not all, network infrastructures. They can be easily connected to your network and integrated into your existing system. Our devices offer remote management capabilities, enabling you to conveniently configure and monitor them from a centralized location.

  • Sighthound Hardware utilizes the power of edge computing by processing data and running AI algorithms directly on the devices themselves, at the edge of your network. This significantly minimizes latency, improves responsiveness, and reduces reliance on constant network connectivity. With Sighthound Hardware, you can make critical decisions in real-time, ensure continuity of operations even in unreliable network conditions, and effectively manage and analyze your visual data without overwhelming your network infrastructure.
