Massachusetts-based NRG Lab deploys Camio automated tailgating and mask detection to ensure safety and profitability

San Mateo, CA – November 1, 2020 — Camio, the AI-driven, software-based video search and alerting platform, is enabling gyms nationwide stay open during the pandemic.

Massachusetts-based NRG Lab, which owns and operates three gyms in the state, has implemented  Camio to solve “tailgating,” a common security problem where unauthorized visitors enter immediately behind members, allowing continued safe operation and protecting its bottom line during the heath crisis.

Camio tailgating detection accurately identifies members that allow unauthorized entry using their badge-in credentials, which is particularly beneficial during hours when the front desk is not staffed. Gym members and staff get automated alerts through any Web browser—sometimes with fines—to deter people from jeopardizing the club's continued operation.

Many gyms are remaining open during COVID-19 by reducing density and operating unattended front desks 24/7. Using existing cameras and access control systems such as Openpath and Twin Oaks, Camio detects whenever an unauthorized person enters the gym. The Camio platform also detects whether people are wearing masks to help the clubs remain safe places to visit.

“Providing new around-the-clock access to our gyms was critical to reopening safely, meeting the needs of our members and maintaining profitability,” said Luther White, president and CEO of NRG Lab. “Camio set up our tailgating solution in less than an hour using our existing cameras. Now we’re able to easily and affordably protect our profit margins and limit non-member access to protect the well-being of everyone who passes through our doors.”

“It’s not just large enterprises that need to ensure business continuity and safeguard employees and customers,” explained Camio CEO Carter Maslan. “The Camio platform makes intelligent, remote video monitoring simple and cost-effective”

Camio currently provides modern video SaaS and remote monitoring for gyms, real estate development companies, manufacturing,  logistics operations, and universities across 35 time zones. For more information, visit or contact us.
