Immediate Deterrence
by Niō Foils 98% of Crime without Delays from Human Intervention


NDAA Compliance

All iDter products are fully compliant with the requirements of the US NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) of 2018. iDter products exclusively use Ambarella System on a Chip (SoC) technology for digital image and computational processing, Broadcom AzureWave technology for communications, and Zilog PIR MCU for motion detection. Ambarella, Broadcom, Zilog, and iDter, a division of Kuna Systems, are US companies that develop and control their own firmware, middleware, and software.

How it works


iDter stands for intelligent deterrence of crime.

Our ability to take immediate deterrence by our Niō guardian nodes has proven to thwart 98%+ of crime without the unavoidable delays from human intervention. We develop, manufacture, and provide an end-to-end, security solution for commercial clients who want to put an end to crime on their property.

Our solution includes Niō guardian nodes strategically located around your property, all application software, and all services, including central live monitoring with police dispatch, video hosting, system configuration, and installation services to ensure a seamless solution to securing your assets, employees, and customers. We offer our solution exclusively through a capable network of local security providers.


What’s Different

The total time lost when live-video monitoring personnel are notified of an intrusion and engage in deterring a crime is the sum of all the inherent delays, specifically: the time to move the video event to the cloud, the time to draw the attention of a person watching hundreds of video feeds, the time for a person to observe and assess the intent of an intruder, the time to send a voice down message and/or dispatch the police or security guard, and the time for the authorities to respond. Valuable minutes and seconds are lost when compared to our intelligent Niō guardian nodes, located on your premises, that upon AI detection of intrusion, Niō guardian nodes commence a sequence of deterrence actions in less than 1 second.  Time matters!  Property can be damaged in just seconds. iDter intelligent and immediate deterrence with Niō replaces security services with manual voice down messaging 98%+ of the time, resulting in faster, more effective deterrence of crime and lower security costs.

Niō guardians use AI to recognize intrusion and take immediate deterrence actions.

The difference between iDter and other security solutions is our inherent ability to take immediate and proactive deterrence actions, in less than 1 second, thus eliminating the delays inherent with human intervention. Conventional live-video monitoring services tend to not mention the total inherent delay times from the detection of an intrusion to the execution of effective deterrence reactions.

Niō nodes are intelligent guardians with the ability to recognize intrusion and take immediate deterrence actions within 1 second

Our intelligent, quad-core Niō guardian nodes and iDter cloud servers use advanced Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) algorithms within the AI application to recognize intrusion and take immediate and effective deterrence actions that surprise intruders and defy predictability. Niō nodes are equipped with the technology to guard your premise with 10,000 lumen multidirectional LED lighting, 4K high definition digital camera, and multiple motion detectors.  Niō nodes also protect you with a rich set of immediate deterrence responses like the instantaneous illumination of the 10,000 lumen flood LED, blinding strobes of red and blue LEDs, piercing sirens, and situation-appropriate voice-down warning messages.  As backup, the iDter Central Security (iCS) personnel provide direct human engagement with the intruders through one or all Niō nodes and, if necessary, dispatch the police.



All Open Air Assets

Most crime occurs in outdoor spaces, which is why iDter developed a very comprehensive camera based system focused specifically on securing outdoor spaces and open air assets. 


Construction and
Equipment Rental Sites

Time matters! Our intelligent and immediate response to intrusion results in faster and more effective deterrence of crime with significantly lower security costs.



Damage to property can occur in seconds. With iDter, intruders will immediately know they are not alone, being monitored, and their actions recorded. 


Agriculture and
Cannabis Facilities

Why deploy only a surveillance camera when you can implement, at the same cost, Niō guardians that not only detect events but also automatically and intelligently deter intrusion.


Hotels, Malls, and Commercial Businesses

Each area and each type of business calls for a unique set of security responses and flexible time schedules to appropriately respond to pedestrian and vehicle movement.


Auto Dealerships

Theft and vandalism continue to rise in the retail auto industry. The challenge is to provide potential customers access to browse inventory, after hours, while rigorously protecting the business and its assets from inevitable and costly crime. The iDter System enables security service providers to configure the system to align with the auto dealerships’ specific needs and policies.
For example, if the dealership encourages shoppers to walk the parking lot after hours, say from 8-10 PM, the Nio nodes can be configured to welcome visitors upon detection, increase LED lighting slightly to improve their experience and communicate the normal business hours. As the evening progresses, after 10PM, the iDter system can communicate a message that the business is closed for the evening and to please return during normal business hours. 
If iDter senses loitering or intrusion late in the night, say midnight to 4AM, the deterrence actions can be programmed to progressively respond to intrusion with stern voice-down messages, sound effects, flood lights and ultimately, piercing sirens and strobing red/blue lights.
Damage to property can occur in seconds, which is why the iDter System is designed to respond in less than one (1) second to unwanted intrusion.  Intruders will immediately know they are not alone, being monitored, and their actions recorded. The result of immediate and proportional deterrence is proven to thwart 98% of intrusion without human intervention. 
The remaining one-to-two percent are resolved through intervention by our iCS central station personnel.  In such cases, the iCS team responds to urgent alerts, directly engages the intruders through the rich set of Niō deterrence actions, and, if necessary, dispatches the authorities. Please contact us or one of our local security providers for a demonstration of the iDter intelligent and immediate deterrence solution.
