How Does WiFi Motion Compute Its Data: Edge vs. Cloud Computing?

With over 30 billion IoT devices expected by 2025 and over 120 zettabytes of data generated annually, edge and cloud computing are crucial for managing data efficiently. Real-time processing needs in autonomous vehicles, smart cities, and AI advancements highlight their importance. Edge computing reduces latency by processing data closer to its source, essential for 5G networks and applications like Wi-Fi Sensing. ISPs must balance edge and cloud strategies to optimize efficiency and address cost concerns. Cognitive’s WiFi Motion demonstrates this by running motion detection on the edge. This article explores the distinctions between edge and cloud computing, Cognitive's approach, and considerations for ISPs in the IoT era.

How Can Wi-Fi Sensing Improve Secondary Verification?

How Can Wi-Fi Sensing Improve Secondary Verification?

The U.S. Department of Justice reports that 94-98% of police responses to security alarms are false, costing over $1 billion annually. False alarms, triggered by non-threatening events like shadows or pets, lead to unnecessary police dispatches, operational inefficiencies, fines, and customer dissatisfaction. Secondary verification, which uses multiple data points to confirm alarms, addresses this by reducing reliance on single sensors and minimizing errors. AVS-01, a standard by The Monitoring Association, mandates procedural verification steps to ensure alarm reliability, utilizing data from multiple sensors, video, and audio systems to categorize alarms by priority. Wi-Fi Sensing enhances secondary verification by detecting motion through Wi-Fi signal disruptions, confirming human presence and reducing false alarms. It integrates easily into existing systems, enhancing reliability without complex installations. Advanced algorithms further refine motion detection, filtering out non-threatening movements. This technology streamlines threat detection, improves response times, and boosts customer trust in security systems.
