IPVM tested Avigilon Appearance Alerts Version 7.4 in December 2019, noting it lacked key features included in competitors Anyvision and Briefcam. Now, the new version 7.12 introduces enhancements in those areas.
The new features IPVM tested were:
- Search by uploaded photo, including faces, appearance, and vehicles
- Drawing a box around the person or vehicle in the recorded video to search
- Create facial recognition watchlists from photos, single or in bulk
- Add multiple watchlists with configurable alerts for each
- Improvements to handling low quality and partially occluded face images, e.g. bearded subjects
