First Steps after Deployment¶
Once FindFace Security is successfully deployed, it is time to open the web interface and get started. In this chapter, you can find a recommended sequence of steps that will help you harness the entire functionality of your system.
In this chapter:
- Create a camera group. A camera group is an entity that allows you to group cameras subject to their physical location. For example, cameras at the same entrance to a building can be combined into one camera group.
- Add cameras to the camera group and check their statuses.
You may also need:
- Configure your system to process video from the group of cameras at their physical location. It may come in handy in a distributed architecture. Learn more.
- Consider enabling event deduplication if observation scenes of cameras within the group overlap. This feature allows you to exclude coinciding facial recognition events among cameras belonging to the same group. Learn more.
By default, FindFace Security is monitoring only unmatched faces. To enable a custom watch list monitoring, simply make this list active. You can also turn on sound notifications and request manual acknowledgment for the events associated with the list.
You may also need:
- Automatically identify faces in live video and check them against watch lists. Work with the event history by using various filters.
- Harness the episodes. An episode is a set of identification events that feature faces of the same person, detected within a certain period of time. As events on the Events tab show up in an arbitrary order, a large number of miscellaneous events can make the work difficult and unproductive. With the Episodes, the system uses AI to organize incoming events based on the faces similarity and detection time. This allows for easy processing of diverse events, even in large numbers.
- Search for faces in the following databases:
- Search archived videos for faces in the watch lists.
- Manually compare 2 faces and verify that they belong to the same person.
- Use the mobile app.
- Set up webhooks to automatically send notifications about certain events to a given URL. In this case, when such an event occurs, FindFace Security will send an HTTP request to the URL configured for the webhook. You can use webhooks for various purposes, for example, to notify a user about a certain event, invoke required behaviour on a target website, solve security tasks such as automated access control, etc. Learn more.
- Harness the FindFace Security functions through HTTP API.
- Check out the list of our partner integrations.
- Harness plugins to set your own directives that determine how FindFace Security processes detected faces.
