Artificial intelligence-based intruder detection can effectively monitor spaces for suspicious activity, surfacing detections to security staff.

Existing intruder detection systems don’t work. Simple systems suffer from rampant false positives because they incorrectly identify wind or animals as people, and advanced facial recognition systems are costly, inefficient, and create significant privacy and compliance challenges.

Actuate sends a real-time alert with video of the intruder to your mobile device or VMS and effectively protects facilities by detecting intruders using existing security cameras, eliminating the need for new hardware. Because it’s based on the latest deep learning AI technology, false positives are eliminated.

Where Existing Solutions Fall Short:

Motion Sensors

Motion sensors are inexpensive and easy to install, but are triggered by anything, including wind and animals, and don’t provide images, requiring on-site cameras or guards.

Video Monitoring

Installing video cameras speeds human validation of possible intruder threats but requires significant manpower to operate, even with motion detection.

IR Sensors

Infrared systems can effectively detect people and differentiate them from animals but are costly and require specialized hardware.

Industries Where AI Intruder Detection Is Used


AI-based intruder detection can alert security staff when an intruder is present at an unmanned facility or after hours, enabling instant responses.

Real Estate

AI-based intruder detection ensures that teams know where people are at all times and can respond instantly in case of unauthorized entry.


Intruder detection enables efficient, centralized monitoring of stores, preventing loss outside of business hours.
