Getting started

Existing home security systems are good for monitoring and reporting, but they do not have the level of sophisticated AI to deliver data where action can be taken without actual human involvement.

Sentry AI partners with Blue Iris software to outfit your security cameras with AI technology in minutes. Using computer vision AI technology, Sentry AI only sends you the alerts when a human is detected, suppressing up to 90 percent of false alerts. In addition, you can save time reviewing video recordings with the daily Smart reports.


Real-time alert (Email/SMS) for human detection.
Smart Report: Human & Vehicle detection synopsis photos & videos.
