Verkada People And Face Analytics Tested

By: Ethan Ace, Rob Kilpatrick, and Sean Patton, Published on Aug 16, 2019

This week, Verkada released "People Analytics", including face analytics that they describe is a "game-changing feature" that "pushes the boundaries of enterprise video security".

To see how these new analytics perform, we tested them with our Verkada D40 Minidome, examining:

  • How well does it detect people?
  • How well does it analyze clothing color?
  • How well does it identify male and female appearance?
  • How well does it detect and analyze faces?
  • What distance/PPF level is required for detection?
  • Does it incorrectly identify vehicles/animals as people?
  • How well does it perform in low-light and IR illuminated conditions?
  • What Verkada cameras support this feature?
  • How are people analytics enabled and configured?
