Exacq "Facial Matching" Facial Recognition Tested

By: Rob Kilpatrick, Published on Sep 03, 2020

Exacq is claiming "Accurate Recall of Every Noteworthy Person of Interest" with their Tyco AI powered "Facial Matching", but how well does it work in real-world scenes?

IPVM Image

We tested Exacq Facial Matching examining:

  • How does it perform in real-world surveillance scenarios?
  • How often does it falsely identify a person as someone else?
  • Where does it miss faces / people walking through the scene?
  • Can it still recognize faces of people wearing masks, sunglasses, hats, hoodies?
  • How does it perform at night in low light (~2 lux) or dark/IR (~0.02 lux)?
  • Does it detect anything other than human faces?
  • Is the user interface easy to navigate?
