Search the archive for visitors

When an incident occurs in a private facility, such as an office or workplace, the usual suspects are strangers. With Watcher, you can find videos of unregistered visitors and investigate the incident.

Set up the camera

Search for visitors is based on face recognition. So check that the camera is up to recommended video image parameters for face recognition.

Enable face recognition Watcher

To enable face recognition in Watcher:

  1. Install the analytics module
  2. Add the camera to Watcher.
  3. Select the face recognition option on the camera.

After that, Watcher will start detecting people's faces in the video and record these events in the camera's archive. You may find all the entries on the Events page in the Watcher UI.

Create accounts for the employees

  1. Create a face list called "Employees". This can be done at Events - Face Detector - Face Lists - Edit.

    Creating fate list

  2. Find a face among the faces detected by the camera and edit its profile by adding it to the "Employees" list. Everyone who is not on this list is considered a stranger.
