Face mask detection or, more specifically not wearing a face mask, is an expanding offering in the midst of coronavirus. Avigilon has now released theirs but how well does it work?

Inside this note, we share our findings across:

  • How Avigilon’s mask detection performed in evenly-lit, low-light, IR, and WDR scenes
  • How can it be monitored
  • What type of issues Avigilon had with people spoofing masks
  • How Avigilon's performance compares against Dahua, Hikvision and ZKTeco tablet face mask detection
