Intelligent Video surveillance

Veesion is a Paris based security company that has developed a gesture recognition technology. Since 2018, we have been detecting gestures of theft in stores around the world, with a goal of eradicating shoplifting and theft.
Our gesture recognition software leverages the latest advances in Deep Learning to automatically detect obvious theft gestures in real time at retail stores from existing surveillance cameras.

The benefits of intelligent video surveillance for stores.

Fight effectively against theft
Identify thefts in real time
Dissuade regular theft
The amount of theft (more precisely, shrinkage) is estimated at up to 3% of the sales turnover of retail stores. The installation of a traditional video surveillance system certainly contributes to limiting these acts, but the dissuasive effect fades from year to year. It is difficult for a security guard (when there is one) to keep an eye on everything and spot all suspicious acts. Less than 5% of thefts are detected by an experienced agent.

Veesion is a 24/7 video operator that doesn't take breaks or holidays and never gets tired. Simply put, Veesion helps you maximize your security spend.
Many stores are equipped with video surveillance systems and/or security guards. Nevertheless, it remains difficult for the human eye to detect several simultaneous acts on several cameras.
With Veesion, simultaneous thefts and human failure are no longer a problem. Indeed, we are able to analyze all cameras at the same time, allowing you to optimize the detection of thefts.
It is estimated that 50% of the thefts are committed by regular customers of your store. Theft in itself is a harmful act, but when it is continuous, it impacts the profitability of the store even more. It is therefore necessary and urgent to identify regular (and non-regular) thieves in order to catch them and prevent them from reoffending.
Veesion has no bias, in other words, we detect both old and young people, men and women without distinction. This allows you to multiply your chances of detecting fraudulent acts.

Secure your store with intelligent video surveillance

Intelligent anti-theft system

In the field of video surveillance, Veesion has developed a powerful tool to help you optimize the security of your store. We offer you an intelligent anti-theft system based on artificial intelligence allowing you to detect suspicious gestures in real time by warning you every time someone is acting suspicious in your store.

An innovative artificial intelligence system

Veesion is the first gesture recognition software used to fight against theft.
We bring to your video protection system the best of Artificial Intelligence to prevent theft in real time.

How does our anti-theft system for stores work?

Veesion is an anti-theft system for stores around the world. For several months, our developers and AI researchers "trained" the Veesion algorithm to detect theft by giving it millions of examples of suspicious gestures related to theft. Our software is able to detect thefts that take place in front of store cameras. In AI, the continuous learning process allows our technology to get better and better and eventually reach 99% detection rate.

Installation of the software on the store's existing cameras:

After connecting our server to your video recorder, we synchronize the Veesion software with the cameras in your store. In less than 30 minutes you start receiving your first alerts.

Sending alerts on the tablet or phone available to the store:

Once connected to your cameras, the system will send you notifications on your tablet, phone or computer (even on your cash registers). These notifications are short videos allowing you to quickly identify the suspect and intervene in real time.

Stoppage of the thieves by the store's security guards

After receiving the alert, the security guard will be able to apprehend the thief before he flees and use the video notification to avoid any outbursts: The video proof allows you to quickly put the suspect in front of the security guard’s eyes, who can then decide to act if necessary after the checkout.

Our commitments regarding video surveillance in stores:

Veesion's technology only analyzes gestures, never individuals.

Veesion does not use the data collected for its own activities.

Artificial intelligence is put at the service of its customers as a decision support tool.

Veesion technology has the same purpose as existing video protection systems.

Veesion technology is based solely on algorithmic processing of gestures. The company does not use facial recognition, customer tracking or identity registration.
Therefore, our technology does not allow for the recognition of physical or physiological characteristics, the deduction of emotions or intentions of people. 

This is one of Veesion's founding commitments. This commitment allows us to protect the identity of all our clients' consumers.
Veesion does not monetize the data it collects through its artificial intelligence. This data is only used to detect behaviors that could harm people or property.

Our algorithm does not have any identification process and does not keep any data, either collective or individual (face, gait, emotion, clothing).
Veesion is available to help stores make the best possible decision against thieves. We enable our customers to make informed decisions. But we believe that the final decision must be made by our customers, so we do not make any decisions for you. Our solution simply helps you in the decision making process.

In short, Veesion software does not automate the decision making process, but simply the detection of theft in your store. This not only increases the security of your customers but also the security of your store.
Veesion meets the same objective as traditional video surveillance systems: to ensure the safety of people and property. And that means detecting theft in your store. To do this, we develop an intelligent theft detection system to help you detect thieves.
Conventional video surveillance systems only record images. But if no one is behind the surveillance screens, cameras are superfluous. But even with a security guard watching the screens all day, thefts may be missed. Our artificial intelligence remedies this by automating the viewing of the cameras and the detection of thieves in your store. We therefore remedy the human failure by sending alerts to your agents in case of risk of theft in your store. All they have to do is arrest the thief.
It should also be noted that the video alerts sent by Veesion are subject to data protection regulations because on the one hand, they show individuals, and on the other hand they are visible to security agents or employees declared to the prefecture. We make sure that we are always in accordance with the laws in force.

and Answers

Who can view the video surveillance images of a store?

The recorded images must not be freely accessible to all employees or customers. In its deliberation of April 22, 2010, the CNIL stated that the images captured and recorded must be sufficiently protected against access by unauthorized third parties (Délib. Cnil N°2010-112 du 22-4-10).

Thus, in principle, only security managers, security guards or employees can view them. The people filmed also have a right of access to the images on which they appear (article L. 253-5 CSI). The recorded images can be viewed to remove a doubt.

How long is the legal retention period for video surveillance recordings?

The person in charge of the system must determine the duration of the conservation of the images of its cameras and must do it in connection with the objective pursued by the installation of the system of surveillance.

The conservation of the images is not superior to 30 days, except for legal proceedings in progress. In fact, some images can be kept for a longer period if this conservation is necessary for an investigation and to serve as proof relative to a security incident. The need for retention is re-evaluated regularly.

Does Veesion only work as an anti-theft system or does it have other functionalities?

Today, Veesion allows the detection of gestures potentially associated with shoplifting. We are also working on another algorithm capable of detecting fraud at traditional checkouts or at self-checkout.

The alerts can be displayed as a popup (in addition to the application) on a PC. Thanks to a customer backoffice (soon available), the user can have a view of the Veesion results on all his points of sale by filtering by dates.

Does Veesion also sell video surveillance cameras for stores?

Veesion is a software hosted on a computational server that is implemented on existing cameras. In other words, Veesion does not sell surveillance cameras for retail stores. However, we work in partnership with many suppliers and can provide advice on the supply of video surveillance equipment.
