Video analysis of the course of events in real time makes it possible to prevent crime
Nyx Security has taken the Swedish security industry by storm the last two years with its crime preventing, innovative security solution based on intelligent cameras and video analysis of the course of events in real time. A number of cooperation partnerships have been established with players in the security industry, e.g. Bravida Säkerhet, G4S Norway and Rapid Larmcentraler, and has received several major orders from Statoil, Peab, NCC and others.
In March 2011, Nyx Security attracted 100 million SEK in venture capital from the venture capital firms Amadeus Capital and Northzone Ventures (a major shareholder in Spotify).
Nyx intelligent solutions build on Revisec, Nyx’s innovative security platform based on in-house developed and leading intelligent video analysis of the course of events in real time. The cameras can detect anomalous courses of events such as intrusions or deviations from routes and procedures and then alert operators who decide on immediate action. The systems make possible efficient 24/7 surveillance all year round at a low cost and prevent and document damages, thefts and accidents.
Nyx security has around 4,000 intelligent cameras connected to its camera monitoring center. The company’s security solution has prevented around 6,000 crimes so far this year.
