Security Applications

  • Indoor/Outdoor Security

    Our powered indoor and outdoor solutions offer complex person/vehicle detection and face recognition on the edge, surpassing the performance of most GPU-based systems—all at a fraction of the power budget.

  • Multi-Sensor/Multi-Directional Security Cameras

    Combining multiple sensors in a single casing, our multisensor cameras deliver 360° coverage of the target environment at extremely high resolutions, all using a single-chip design.

  • ITS & Traffic Cameras with Computer Vision

    Our traffic cameras and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) solutions are designed to enhance roadway security with a combination of person and vehicle detection, vehicle make/model recognition, and automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) capabilities.

  • Retail Cameras with Onboard Analytics

    In-store cameras are useful for more than just security—they offer retailers the opportunity to analyze customer behavior, traffic patterns, and areas of high or low interest. Ambarella chips combine cutting-edge surveillance features with next-generation analytics capabilities, enabling better inventory control, product placement, customer tracking, ad campaign targeting, and staffing adjustments—without relying on the cloud.

  • Powered Indoor AI Cameras

    Ideal for home use, our smart AI cameras offer person/pet detection, face detection and recognition, and fall detection (e.g., for elder care), delivering a security system tailor-made for the individual consumer.

  • Low-Power Wire-Free Cameras with Intelligent Alerts

    Delivering reliable person detection and person/pet/vehicle classification, our wire-free cameras provide the alerts consumers need most, without pestering them with false alarms.  And because we offer a Quick Motion Detect feature, our solutions don’t drain the camera’s battery with lengthy (and unnecessary) wakeups.

  • Smart Video Doorbells

    Our doorbell solutions deliver person detection, face detection and recognition (including “familiar/unfamiliar face” alerts), and package detection on the edge, offering low-latency performance without the cost and lag-time of the cloud.
