Avigilon 'First Release' Facial Recognition with Alerts - As Part of ACC v7.4

We suspected Avigilon might be 'catching up' with Motorola's 'deep pockets' (take note) and here it is; ACC 7 Facial Recognition with much more to come...who needs expensive 'third party' integrations ?

So you're an ACC 7 Enterprise customer and have Avigilon Analytic cameras...H4A or H5A. You can receive alerts in 'Focus of Attention' now when a person of interest (POI) is picked up on your site. For Security Managers, identify a POI and 'flag' them in your system when you review recorded footage.

There's much more to come and sooner rather than later....if you're with Avigilon, hold on to your seat !

As an Enterprise customer you already have Appearance Search to find POI in recorded footage and now 'live' notifications..and it's only going to get better and faster. Don't take our word for it, see the IPVM review here.

That's the Avigilon 'Advantage'; so if you're not an Enterprise customer, talk to the SWL Sales Team about getting on board.
