Motorola Solutions adds privacy controls to biometric video management software

Motorola Solutions adds privacy controls to biometric video management software

Motorola Solutions has upgraded the capabilities of its facial recognition video security and analytics product Avigilon Control Center (ACC) 7.6 by adding watch list controls to safeguard individual privacy rights and enforce responsible data management while addressing enterprise safety needs, the company announced.

ACC 7.6 integrates robust controls for watch list data retention and accessibility, a capability to create and manage multiple watch lists within the solution, and the option to populate a watch list with uploaded reference images. The technology behind the features is developed by Motorola, rather than a third-party vendor. Enterprise customers using the technology will manage and maintain the data in the watch lists.

“When leveraged responsibly, facial recognition is an incredibly powerful tool that can assist in numerous ways, including helping enterprise organizations make better informed decisions that empower them to respond to events proactively,” said John Kedzierski, senior vice president, Video Security Solutions, Motorola Solutions, in a prepared statement. “For our enterprise customers, we believe potential facial recognition matches should always be assessed and verified by a trained specialist who can then determine whether further investigation or action is necessary.”

In critical environments such as school campuses, the technology can identify threats and add their photos to the system. If a face is matched against the watch list, security operators are notified to take adequate measures.

ACC 7.6 also features Unusual Activity Detection analytics. It uses edge-based intelligence that detects unusual speed of movement or location of people or vehicles, and continuously learns to tell typical from abnormal events, such as a person running through a crowded public place. Avigilon’s ACC 7.4 introduced ‘appearance alerts’ in December to alert security teams to people of interest.

The new version is ONVIF Profile G compliant and will be demonstrated at Motorola Solutions’ virtual showcase on March 18 to 20, 2020.
