Facial biometrics for quicker investigations

July 2016 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, IT infrastructure, Products

Tyco Security Products introduces facial biometrics within VideoEdge video surveillance systems for immediate detection and verification of individuals.

With Face Detection analytics, operators can be proactively notified that the surveillance system has detected a person of interest, for example, known criminals, ex-employees, VIPs or other persons of importance. This technology can be useful in protecting stock and assets by alerting security to potential risks much sooner than normal, to increasing customer retention by alerting the store manager to greet an important customer entering the store.

Face detection is built into the VideoEdge network video recorder (NVR), eliminating the need for external servers dedicated to powering the analytics. Up to 1 000 individuals can be easily enrolled and stored in VideoEdge’s on-board database, with the ability to store multiple faces for each person in the system for the highest possible accuracy in identification.

Face detection analytics can also be used ‘post-event’ to speed investigation times by searching video only for specific persons, enabling operators to search video for certain criteria – for example, those individuals who had access to the surrounding area of the incident. Known faces can also be enrolled with video associated for faster future investigations. For example, a retail store can add a photo of a shoplifter at one of its locations to the database so he/she can be seen across the enterprise of sites. If that person enters another store location, operators receive an instant alert to take action to aid in preventing costly shoplifting occurrences.

When used in conjunction with the C•CURE 9000 security and event management system and the victor Unified client application, operators and guards can be visually alerted if a mismatch is detected between the live video image and the stored access control credential image of a card which has just been used on the system. Visual verification of the cardholder greatly increases security to the most vulnerable areas of a business.
