Avigilon Facial Recognition 'Appearance Alerts' Tested

By: Sean Patton, Published on Dec 18, 2019

Avigilon has released 'Appearance Alerts' in ACC 7.4, which adds real-time facial recognition.

To see how this performed, we tested them with our H4A and H5A cameras and ACC7.4, examining:

  • How well does Avigilon face recognition work?
  • Where does it fail?
  • What limitations exist for face watchlist management?
  • What distance/PPF is required for face recognition?
  • What is the maximum angle of incidence it recognizes faces?
  • How well does it work in low light/IR lighting?
  • How much does it cost?
  • How much additional resource on the Analytics Server is required?

Appearance Alerts adds to Appearance Search, which we tested here.
