Ten Use Cases Voice Capture Technology in the Security Space - Arkx Laboratories

July 10, 2023

ArkX Labs, a technology frontrunner in the Far-Field Voice Capture industry, and the adoption of voice capture technology into the Security Space.

Many companies are exploring voice capture technology to add voice as an offering or to improve the performance of their existing offerings. The possibilities are diverse, with many companies— perhaps most companies— having real opportunities to deploy Far-Field Voice Capture Technology, including:

Voice capture for access control
Voice capture technology can be used to create unique voiceprints for individuals, which can be used to verify their identity and grant access to secure areas. The consensus was that this would be particularly useful for multi-factor authentication.

Speech analytics for monitoring public spaces
Voice capture technology can be used to detect specific keywords or phrases that may indicate a security threat in public spaces such as airports, train stations, or sports stadiums.

Far-Field enabled video surveillance
Far-Field Voice capture technology can supplement video capture and, in many cases, can extend the effective voice capture distance to ten or more meters while filtering out even the loudest background noises, significantly increasing the capabilities for voice capture versus nearly every solution on the market today. 4) Voice-triggered alarming for intrusion detection

Voice capture technology can be used to trigger alarms or notifications when specific vocalizations or sounds are detected, such as the sound of breaking glass or a gunshot.

Voice-enabled intercoms for communication
Voice capture technology can be used in intercom systems to enable voice communication among different parts of a building or facility.

Voice-enabled emergency response systems
Voice capture technology can be built into PA systems, speaker systems, clocks, and other common electrical devices found in classrooms, on campuses, and in commercial settings to detect and identify specific vocalizations, such as a distress call or a cry for help.

Voice-detection for robots and drones
Voice capture technology can be used to capture speech or detect certain known sounds and identify the voice path (including direction of arrival), enhancing the capability of robots and drones to respond to a known or suspected event.

Voice-enabled panic stations
Voice capture technology can be used to trigger panic stations and to remain in voice communication with responders without the need to stay in immediate close proximity of the panic station.

Voice-enabled smart home security
Voice capture technology can be used to control smart home security systems through voice commands, allowing users to arm or disarm their security system using voice only. In addition, utilizing the noise filtering capability of far-field solutions, alarm keypads equipped with this technology could permit voice communication with central station monitoring personnel—even in the presence of a sounding siren or other loud annunciation devices.

Voice-enabled law enforcement tools
Far-field Voice capture technology can be used by law enforcement agencies to significantly increase the capture distance and recording accuracy of bodycams, dashcams, and other field-recording devices. The same technology can also be used to document the audio captured during interrogation room interactions with a far superior result than what is possible with current alternate technologies.

The adoption of Far-Field solutions by current and new security OEMS will offer new and ever-more-powerful tools for securing our world.
