This section is all about creating a dossier on a person. A dossier has to contain one or several photos of a person and belong to a certain classification list (watch list), black or white in the simplest case. You can create several watch lists, subject to a person status or hazard level.
To create dossiers in bulk, use the batch photo upload functionality.
In this chapter:
To create a watch list, do the following:
In the web interface, go to the Watch Lists tab.
From the Label palette, select a color which will be shown in notifications for this list. Keep in mind that the right color makes for quicker response of security and hospitality managers.
Specify the list name.
Check Require acknowledgment if it is mandatory that a manager acknowledge events for the list.
If necessary, turn on sound notifications for the list.
In order to deactivate or delete a watch list, do the following:
- Click on the list name in the table.
- To deactivate the list, uncheck Active. Click Save.
- To delete the list, click Delete.
To create a dossier manually, do the following:
In the web interface, go to the Dossier tab.
Attach one or several photos and specify the name of a person. If necessary, add a comment.
A face in the photo must be of high quality, i.e. close to a frontal position. Photos that do not meet the requirement will be rejected with a detailed error description.
From the Watch lists drop-down menu, select a classification list for the dossier.
Check Active. If a dossier is inactive, it is excluded from the real time face identification.
To create dossiers in bulk, use the batch photo upload. Do the following:
In the web interface, go to the Batch Upload tab.
Select multiple image files, or a folder.
You can use image file names as a basis for names and/or comments in dossiers to be created. Select the necessary option(s). Then configure the automatic name/comment generation rule by appending a custom prefix and/or postfix to the file name.
To avoid merging the 3 words into one, use underscore or another symbol in the prefix and postfix.
From the Watch lists drop-down menu, select a classification list for the dossiers.
Use the Parallel Upload option to specify the number of photo upload streams. The more streams you use, the faster it takes to complete the upload, however it requires more resources as well.
From the MF selector drop-down menu, select the system behavior upon detecting several faces in a photo: reject the photo, or upload the biggest face.
Click Start to launch the photo upload.
