Description

  The present invention relates to an information providing system, and more particularly to an information providing system that provides a wide range of services including a crime prevention function in real time using the Internet.
  In recent years, the development of the Internet has shortened the distance between countries, the distance between regions, or the distance between individuals. In other words, communication is possible not only where communication lines are laid, but wherever communication is possible using communication satellites. However, while the infrastructure has been improved, the nuclear family has progressed, and communication between neighboring households has decreased, resulting in many problems in crime prevention and disaster prevention. For example, a person living alone was discovered several months later and confirmed dead. Therefore, recently, companies and NPO corporations that provide services to elderly people who live alone or those who need nursing care have been established. However, since these companies and NPO corporations basically rely on people to provide services, there is a problem that labor costs rise and the burden on the people who receive the services becomes heavy. In addition, since the service depends on people, it takes time to receive the service, and there is a problem that it is inferior in speed.
In Patent Literature 1, a monitoring center that captures each user's monitoring target, for example, an office, a store, a residence, a warehouse, or the like with a monitoring camera and receives a real-time video of the camera via the Internet, Publicly monitor the video of the surveillance camera in real time, and if the viewer recognizes an intruder, fire, or other abnormality, the e-mail function will be used to manage the jurisdiction of the police or fire department. Crime prevention and disaster prevention monitoring systems are disclosed.
Patent Document 2 discloses a network camera security system including a plurality of network cameras connected to the Internet, a camera-equipped mobile phone that communicates with these network cameras, and a television connected to the network camera. The camera-equipped mobile phone has an e-mail transmission / reception application that transmits selection information for selecting the network camera. When the mail control unit receives the selection information, the network camera receives another information based on the received selection information. It has an image acquisition part which acquires a captured image from a network camera, and a display output control part which outputs the acquired image to a television.
JP 2001-325678 A JP 2007-74338 A
However, the conventional technique disclosed in Patent Document 1 has a problem in that a monitoring image at home is viewed by a third party because the monitoring image is disclosed on a homepage.
The prior art disclosed in Patent Document 2 uses the e-mail function of a camera-equipped mobile phone with respect to a network camera, and describes the URL specifying the network camera that captures a desired image in the e-mail. When transmitted, the third party obtains an image captured by another installed network camera based on the URL described in the e-mail via the Internet and displays the acquired image on the television. There is a problem that the monitoring image at home can be seen.
The present invention has been made in view of such a problem, and is provided with a security camera, a human sensor, etc. in the contracted customer's house, notifies the crime occurrence in real time to the security company, and alerts the progress of the crime. In order to revitalize the region by sending advertisements and local information on the control terminal screen on a daily basis, and exchanging information with public institutions such as fire stations, government offices, and police stations, The purpose is to provide an information provision system that prevents crimes in close cooperation with public institutions.
In order to solve this problem, the present invention provides an information providing system for providing various services including a crime prevention service to a customer using a network, in order to provide the customer with the various services. A control terminal that collects and processes information necessary for processing, and a server that provides the various services to the customer based on information transmitted from the control terminal. The server manages the information providing system. In order to operate, it is connected to a control center having functions necessary for implementing the various services on the network.
This information providing system uses a network to request a service from a control terminal provided in a customer's house or building that has signed a contract for various services. The requested service is executed by the server that manages and operates the system after determining the contents of the contract. Therefore, the server is connected not only to the information of the server itself but also to a control center that implements these services, and requests the control center to perform the services. As a result, the customer can reliably and promptly perform the contracted service.
According to claim 2, the control terminal is configured to detect that an abnormality has occurred in the building or other necessary portion of the building related to the customer and the imaging means installed for photographing the necessary portion. An alarm unit that generates an alarm for notification, and a communication unit that transmits image data captured by the imaging unit to the server via the network and receives information transmitted from the server. It is characterized by that.
A control terminal provided in a customer's house or building is generally constituted by a PC or the like. Also, for example, in order to realize the crime prevention function, the image is taken by an imaging means such as a camera, a warning means for notifying that an abnormal situation has occurred, and an imaging means at a building or other necessary location related to the customer. At least a communication unit for transmitting the received image data to the server is necessary. Thereby, the server can acquire the minimum information necessary for implementing the crime prevention service from the control terminal.
According to a third aspect of the present invention, the communication unit includes a network communication unit that communicates with the server via the network, and a wireless communication unit that communicates wirelessly with another control terminal via an access point. It is characterized by.
In order for the control terminal to communicate with other control terminals, there are a method in which the control terminal is wired via a network and a method in which the control terminal is wireless without using the network (for example, a wireless LAN). In this case, the control terminal is equipped with a LAN card, and communicates with other control terminals by relaying the access point wirelessly from the LAN card. Thereby, a communication method can be selected according to a communication distance.
According to a fourth aspect of the present invention, the alarm means is configured to operate simultaneously with the alarm means provided in the control terminal of another customer.
For example, when other customers are relatively separated from each other or surrounded by a bag, other customers may not notice even if the alarm means is activated. Therefore, in the present invention, when any alarm means is activated, the alarm means provided in the control terminal of another customer is activated at the same time. Thereby, the abnormal state of another customer can be recognized immediately.
According to a fifth aspect of the present invention, the various services include at least one of a crime prevention service, a disaster prevention service, a regional information providing service, a medical service, an advertisement service, or a home delivery service.
In the security service, a system operating company (server) makes a contract with a security company and provides contract customers with facilities and security services. For example, by providing a camera or a human sensor at a security target location of a customer and sending image data taken by the camera to a server, the customer can be monitored and the security company can be simultaneously monitored. In addition, as disaster prevention services, weather information and typhoon information issued from public institutions (meteorological agency, government offices, etc.) can be received from the control terminal. In addition, as the regional information providing service, it is possible to acquire information on a region where the customer resides and information on a neighboring region. In addition, as a medical service, it is possible to obtain notifications of regular medical examinations from a family clinic and notifications from public institutions such as health centers. Further, as an advertising service, a paid banner is provided, and income is obtained as an advertising cost from an advertiser who uses this banner. In addition, as a home delivery service, home delivery of products purchased at each store and delivery of products purchased based on information obtained from advertisements can be received. As a result, various services can be received while at home, and convenience for customers can be improved.
According to a sixth aspect of the present invention, when a customer who receives the security service is absent, a control center that implements the security service can turn on / off the control terminal of the customer via the server. Features.
When a customer is away from home, he / she contracts with a system operator for a service for monitoring the absence home. The system operating company notifies the security company to that effect. On the day of absence, the security company turns on the power source of the client's control terminal via the server and operates the imaging means provided therein to monitor the absence home. Thereby, the security company can arbitrarily control the control terminal at the home.
According to a seventh aspect of the present invention, when the control terminal is called by a telephone number that identifies the control terminal, the control terminal turns on the power and transmits the image data captured by the imaging means connected to the control terminal to the server It is characterized by doing.
A unique telephone number is assigned to each control terminal. That is, by providing a telephone number that only the customer who owns each control terminal knows, the customer can freely turn on the control terminal from the outside. And the image data which the customer image | photographed with the imaging means by remote operation is transmitted to a server. As a result, even if the user forgets to request the absence home monitoring, the absence home can be monitored.
According to an eighth aspect of the present invention, when the telephone called by the telephone number specifying the control terminal is an internet telephone, the image data stored in the server is reproduced and can be confirmed by the internet telephone.
Images stored in the server can be appropriately reproduced from the control terminal. However, when the customer is out, the image cannot be viewed on the control terminal, so the control terminal is called once, the power is turned on, the image taken by the imaging means is stored in the server, and the image is reproduced. And confirm it on the display unit of the network telephone. As a result, it is possible to check the state of the home away from home.
According to a ninth aspect of the present invention, the control terminal superimposes an image captured by the imaging unit on the image data transmitted from the server and displays the image on the display unit of the control terminal.
In order for the customer to confirm the image taken by the imaging means, some display unit is required. At that time, since there is a case where an operation of switching the imaging unit is performed while viewing the image of the display unit transmitted from the server, the display unit and the operation unit are preferably close to each other. Therefore, in the present invention, the image captured by the imaging unit is superimposed on the image data transmitted from the server and displayed on the display unit of the control terminal. Thereby, the display part of a control terminal can be used effectively.
According to a tenth aspect of the present invention, when the control terminal is provided with an interphone for making a call with a visitor, the server can record a voice during the call by the interphone according to the type of service received by the customer.
An interphone is usually installed at the entrance of each home to talk to visitors. In such a case, when the other party who talks via the interphone is a push-selling, it is not easy to leave, and if it is not locked, it is possible to enter the entrance. Therefore, in the present invention, when something unexpected occurs, the voice during a call is recorded in order to provide evidence of crime. Thereby, the voice recorded as evidence can be submitted to the police.
According to the eleventh aspect, when the control terminal is provided with an interphone for making a call with a visitor, the server can switch the voice during the call to the security company by the interphone depending on the type of service received by the customer. Features.
When the other party who talks via the intercom is a push-selling, it may not be easy to leave when the partner notices that the other party is a weak person such as a woman or an elderly person. Therefore, in the present invention, in such a case, the security company switches the voice and asks the male security guard to talk. As a result, it is possible to repel push sales early and prevent crimes in advance.
According to a twelfth aspect of the present invention, the control terminal transmits image data captured by the imaging unit to the server and stores the image data in a storage unit of the control terminal.
The control terminal temporarily transmits the image data captured by the imaging unit to the server for storage. The reason is to store the image data in the server so that the image can be viewed from the outside arbitrarily. However, it is preferable from the viewpoint of operability that the image data taken by the customer's own imaging means can be easily seen. Therefore, in the present invention, the image data captured by the imaging unit is transmitted to the server and stored in the storage unit of the control terminal. As a result, the captured image can be viewed at any time without accessing the server.
According to the present invention, the server is connected not only to the information of the server itself but also to a control center that implements these services via a network, and requests that the control center perform the service. Customers can reliably and promptly perform contracted services.
In addition, the control terminal transmits imaging means such as a camera to the customer's building or other necessary location, alarm means for notifying that an abnormal situation has occurred, and image data captured by the imaging means to the server. Therefore, the server can acquire the minimum information necessary for implementing the crime prevention service from the control terminal.
In the case of a method in which the control terminal performs wirelessly without going through a network (for example, wireless LAN), the control terminal is provided with a LAN card, and communicates with other control terminals by relaying an access point wirelessly from the LAN card. Therefore, the communication method can be selected according to the communication distance.
In addition, when any of the alarm means is activated, the alarm means provided in the control terminal of the other customer is operated at the same time, so that the abnormal state of the other customer can be recognized immediately.
In addition, since various services include a crime prevention service, a disaster prevention service, a local information providing service, an advertisement service, or a home delivery service, it is possible to receive various services while staying at home, and to improve customer convenience.
Also, on the day of absence, the security company turns on the power of the client's control terminal via the server and operates the imaging device provided there to monitor the absence home, so the control terminal at the absence home This can be arbitrarily controlled by the security company.
In addition, by giving a telephone number that only the customer who owns each control terminal knows, the customer can freely turn on the control terminal from the outside, and image data taken by the imaging means by the customer remotely Is transmitted to the server, it is possible to monitor the absence home even if the request for monitoring the absence home is forgotten.
In addition, once the control terminal is called up and the power is turned on, the image taken by the imaging means is stored in the server, and the image is reproduced and displayed on the display unit of the network telephone so that it can be confirmed even at a distance. You can check the state of your home.
Moreover, since the image image | photographed with the imaging means is displayed on the display part which a control terminal has, the display part of a control terminal can be used effectively.
Also, if something unexpected happens, the voice during the call is recorded to provide evidence of the crime, so that the evidence can be submitted to the police.
Moreover, since the security company switches the voice and asks the male security guard to talk, it is possible to repel push-up sales early and prevent crimes.
In addition, since the image data captured by the imaging unit is transmitted to the server and stored in the storage unit of the control terminal, the captured image can be viewed at any time without accessing the server.

There is. Therefore, in this embodiment, in such a case, the voice is switched to the security company 28 side and a call is made with a male security guard. As a result, it is possible to repel push sales early and prevent crimes in advance. In addition, an interphone for talking with visitors is usually installed at the entrance of each home. In such a case, when the other party who talks via the interphone is a push-selling, it is not easy to leave, and if it is not locked, it is possible to enter the entrance. Therefore, in this embodiment, when something unexpected occurs, the voice during the call is recorded in order to provide evidence of crime. Thereby, the voice recorded as evidence can be submitted to the police.
  FIG. 6 is a flowchart for explaining a second embodiment of the information providing system of the present invention. FIG. 6 shows an example of “monitoring by IP telephone”. This is an embodiment in which a customer goes out and remotely monitors the condition of his / her home from the outside. First, when the telephone number assigned to the home control terminal 50b is pushed by the IP telephone 31, the telephone company 30 recognizes the number and connects to the telephone of the control terminal 50b through a telephone line (S10). When the telephone is connected, the telephone receives a call signal, and the line is blocked by the NCU (network control unit). In conjunction with this, the control terminal 50b turns on its own power (S11). Thereby, the image | video image | photographed with the camera connected to the control terminal 50b is transmitted to the server 25 via the internet 11 by the communication part 12 (S12). When all the images are transmitted (YES in S13), the customer receives the home video stored in the server 25 by the IP telephone 31 (S14). If the customer sees the received video and there is no abnormality (NO in S15), the process ends. If an abnormality is found (YES in S15), the customer contacts the security company 28 (S16), and the security guard goes directly to his home. (S17).
  FIG. 7 is a flow chart for explaining a third embodiment of the information providing system of the present invention. FIG. 7 shows an example of “monitoring by a security camera”. First, the customer manually turns on the power of the control terminal 50 (S20). As a result, the cameras 2 and 3 operate to display the camera image on the display 4 (S21). At this time, it is determined whether there is an abnormality from the displayed video. If there is no abnormality and there are a plurality of cameras, a camera image button is pressed in the security camera area 40 of the display 4 to switch (S26). If there is no abnormality in the switched image (NO in S23), the process ends. If an abnormality is found in the image in step S23 (YES in S23), a warning lamp button (not shown) on the display 4 is turned on to turn on the warning lamp 8 (S24). At this time, an alarm may be issued simultaneously by the alarm device 9. Thereby, the information is automatically transmitted to the security company (S25). In this embodiment, the customer himself / herself determines whether or not there is an abnormality by looking at the image displayed on the display 4 and notifies the security company. The warning light 8 and the warning device 9 may be configured to operate simultaneously with the warning light 8 and the warning device 9 provided in the control terminal of another contractor. For example, when another contractor is relatively far away or surrounded by a bag, even if the warning light 8 and the alarm device 9 are activated, the other contractor may not notice. Therefore, in this embodiment, when the warning light 8 and the warning device 9 are activated, the warning light 8 and the warning device 9 provided in the control terminal of another contractor are activated simultaneously. Thereby, the abnormal state of another contractor can be recognized immediately.
FIG. 8 is a flow chart for explaining a fourth embodiment of the information providing system of the present invention. FIG. 8 shows an example of “at home monitoring”. This is a service in which when a customer is away from home, a security company monitors the absence home on behalf of the customer. First, the security company 28 requests the server 25 to turn on the power of the customer's control terminal via the Internet 11 on the day requested by the customer. When confirming that the customer is a contractor of this service, the system operating company 24 turns on the power of the control terminal 50 based on a request from the security company 28 (S30). As a result, the cameras 2 and 3 operate to transmit the camera video to the server 25 (S31). The video stored in the server 25 is monitored by the security company, and it is determined whether there is an abnormality from the displayed video (S32). If there is no abnormality and there are multiple cameras, switch the camera video. If there is no abnormality in the switched image (NO in S32), monitoring is continued. If an abnormality is found in the image in step S32 (YES in S32), the warning lamp 8 is turned on (S33). At this time, an alarm may be issued simultaneously by the alarm device 9. Then, the contractor is notified by e-mail or telephone (S34), and the security guard is made to go directly to his / her home to confirm the image (S35).
That is, when the customer is away from home, he / she contracts with the system operating company 24 for a service for monitoring the absence home. The system operating company 24 notifies the security company 28 to that effect. On the day of absence, the security company 28 turns on the power of the client's control terminal 50 via the server and operates the cameras 2 and 3 provided therein to monitor the absence home. Thereby, the security company 28 can arbitrarily control the control terminal 50 in the absence home.
