Facial recognition software analyses the geometry of a person’s face to create a unique code, or face print. This data can be stored and used (covered by Data Protection legislation and best practices) in a similar way to other biometric data, including fingerprints, retinal scans and voice recordings. Face prints are now widely used by consumer devices (e.g. the latest generation of Apple iPads) and by some e-commerce websites to enable CGI services (e.g. some sunglasses retailers).
Facial recognition CCTV cameras use face print algorithms to identify and analyse details about someone’s face, such as jaw or nose shape, or the distance between lips and chin. This information can be stored in a database and used to identify a person against other known individuals.
At HDI Systems, we offer our customers facial recognition-enabled security cameras to help improve security, safety, and customer experience in a variety of industries. There are several valuable applications for this technology:
- Identify people suspected of involvement in a crime (or clear suspected individuals of involvement), with evidence that can be used in court proceedings.
- Track the movement of individual customers around different rooms of your building, logging the time spent in each. This information can be used, for example, to provide personalised marketing material or make decisions about introducing new services.
- Note repeat visits of a customer to your business. This information can be cross-referenced with average spend to build a picture of customer value, and track the effects of promotions and advertising to build revenue.
- Provide fast access to secure areas for authorised visitors, employees, and customers.
HDI Systems are based in Sutton, Surrey, within easy reach of the London M25, and we also have an office, storage area, and workshop in Manchester. From these locations we provide design, implementation, and upgrade support to customers throughout the UK. We also have a base in Cyprus, from which we serve customers outside the UK.
