Tyco Security adds facial recognition capabilities to IP video surveillance


Tyco Security Products has added facial recognition capabilities to its American Dynamics VideoEdge video surveillance systems, enabling the immediate detection and verification of individuals.

By adding the new facial biometrics capabilities to a VideoEdge network video recorder (NVR), users can conduct a SmartSearch to automatically find a matching face and view the corresponding video.

The features allows security officials to identify criminals, terminated employees, VIPs and other persons of interest, as well as enroll and save known faces with video to help facilitate faster investigations in the future.

The new capability enables users to store to 1,000 faces per NVR enrollment database.

For example, a retail store can add a photo of a shoplifter at one of its locations to the database so that the individual can be seen across all its sites. If the individual enters another store location, operators will be immediately notified via an alert to prevent another case of shoplifting.

Each facial biometrics engine is integrated into the VideoEdge NVR. This eliminates the need for another server, resulting in lower operational costs and improved efficiency.

VideoEdge users can also benefit from the facial verification feature with American Dynamics’ victor Unified and Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management platform for a more unified solution.

Access control card holders are immediately detected and verified through these platform extensions, ensuring that operators receive instant visual notification whenever the system detects unauthorized card use.

“Facial biometrics within VideoEdge offers our customers real value in improving loss prevention and reducing investigation time,” said Jammy DeSousa, product manager at Tyco Security Products. “The technology used to match multiple points on a face against images stored in the database delivers a high matching success rate for superior performance.”

Previously reported, Tyco Security Products expanded its biometrics portfolio with the integration of IdentyTech fingerprint readers with Software House’s C•CURE 9000 security and event management solution.
