Facial recognition CCTV is one of the recent developments of our solar-powered AI CCTV tower, allowing businesses and safety managers to implement outstanding security controls and real-time incident responses.
Smart CCTV is a proactive solution, filtering through multiple subjects, recognising authorised personnel and tracking suspicious or unusual movements to focus security teams on specified risks.
Cameras with facial recognition technology are used extensively throughout businesses, border protection, logistics, events planning and public highways management.
Biometric security is one of the many ways to harness the capability of facial recognition technology in restricted access areas.
The automated system requires no manual intervention and can be programmed to deliver dynamic video captures, live footage feeds and continual analysis against defined access control databases.
Where a positive match is identified or an unauthorised individual enters the surveillance zone, the AI immediately notifies security teams, emergency services or site managers as appropriate to mitigate the risks of crime, theft, safety hazard or trespass.
Performance levels are exceptional, and facial detection operates flawlessly even when a face is partially obscured with caps, glasses or scarves, or a person is attempting to impersonate a photo ID.
Facial detection is often used alongside CCTV Analytics and Object Detection Cameras, easily integrated with existing identity management protocols.
There are several ways to incorporate facial recognition into a surveillance system, either in a high-risk environment or in commercial settings:
Facial recognition systems automate the task of interpreting conventional CCTV footage – normally watching captures manually to extract information and make decisions.
This technology reduces the workload of security personnel, provides immediate alerts when suspicious behaviour is detected and can help the authorities trace persons of interest.
CCTV is routinely found in commercial settings or retail shops, ensuring that security teams effectively deal with repeat offenders or intruders.
We also use facial recognition in countless everyday scenarios, from unlocking mobile phones to gaining entry to the workplace – but there are many alternative situations where facial detection can be a powerful safety asset.
Around one in every six roadway accidents is caused by driver fatigue. Pre-crash detection is a robust way to reduce collision risks along with technologies such as Stopped Vehicle Detection and Traffic Monitoring.
Facial recognition can be used to:
AI surveillance can predict other factors such as traffic jams, high-risk junctions, and automatically alert the authorities if there is an incident, breakdown or debris on the road posing a hazard to oncoming road users.
For example, suppose a vehicle is driving the wrong way.
In that case, the security system will raise the alarm, continue tracking the car, and record captures of the perpetrator to enable emergency services to attend, apprehend and verify the driver’s identity.
CCTV with facial recognition capacity is highly customisable and can be programmed to a range of controls depending on the required timeframes and sequences.
Alarms can be transmitted to remote devices, including tablets, mobiles, PDAs and security control centres, and exported to digital text formats to create a clear log.
This enhanced functionality supports superior risk and safety management for a vast range of surveillance and security purposes, helping managers conduct quick searches for specific individuals or understand the best ways to improve the logistics of their sites.

Identification is extremely accurate and can verify a subject through a live recording or images, videos or audio-visual material.
The biometrics measure features to confirm an individual’s identity through data and patterns, collecting a dataset about each person to use in future authentications.
We discussed some of the varied applications above.
Still, facial recognition is used in security authentication, password access, online service logins, building entry, authorising payments, and automated check-ins and border security checks.
Commercial uses include the ability to pinpoint banned or unauthorised individuals, trace behaviour patterns and enable security teams to address any concerns – whether a defined individual is included in the CCTV database or monitoring actions of a person who appears to be behaving unusually.
CCTV technology can be valuable in finding missing people, protecting businesses from theft, enhancing medical treatments, strengthening security measures and storing a compressive database of users and personnel.
