Cawamo Hybrid AI Network (CHAIN)

The AI Video Analytics Problem

AI-enabled video analysis requires massive computational resources, so many companies choose cloud-based implementation of their video analytics solutions.


Yet, while cloud computing offers some computing and storage advantages, they consume huge amounts of bandwidth for upload (and download) transmission of video streaming, which also increases costs. A cloud-based solution also relies on 100% Internet availability. This means that if it isn't connected, it can't detect any threats. 


Cloud-based solutions also don't engage with all on-site systems, such as triggering actions in response to alerts. 


Other AI video analytic solutions are based on Edge devices. However, using these by itself faces several challenges and limitations. Limited CPU power impacts performance and functionality. There's a high-cost to replace AI-based devices such as AI cameras. They are also prone to theft or vandalism, which can mean losing all video information.

Cawamo’s Unique Solution for Outdoor Surveillance


The Cawamo Hybrid AI Network (CHAIN) utilizes both cloud and local edge technologies, offering AI analytics suitable for all mass markets and market segments (residential, commercial, government buildings, and small & large enterprises). 

It can operate numerous remote outdoor locations at once. 

The Cawamo Edge unit is installed on-site and performs the first AI-based detection, which works synchronized with the cloud neural AI network and generates highly accurate alerts.

Cawamo’s cloud is the core of our solution- a powerful neural network specifically trained for numerous security needs. 

Huge amounts of collected data, augmented by our unique “crowd-sourced” inputs (inputs provided by our users and partners), are stored on the cloud and become part of our cloud “knowledge.” 

While the cloud offers unlimited computing power, flexibility, and scalability, implementing the edge device allows for better site security control, great bandwidth efficiency and a full flow end-to-end solution.

It also connects to any on-site equipment such as speakers, and lights to respond to alerts.

We combine the best of both technologies to yield the highest performance at the lowest cost for outdoor security services.
