  • Using Face Detection with your Security Cameras

    Face detection is a Smart Detection function used to detect whether a face has appeared in a video feed. It uses video analytics to detect the shape of a face; specifically, the space between the eyes. Once a face is detected, the camera then sends a picture of the information to your NVR to analyze and process the data in order to improve its functionality. The more face detection is used, the better the application performs. Setup properly, face detection has the capacity to take a snapshot of a face, record faces and action happening, and notify you via a push alert to your Smartphone or email.
