Getting Started

Once you have successfully deployed and configured FindFace, it’s 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 your system’s complete functionality.

Organize Watch Lists and Global Record Index

  1. Create a new watch list or use the default one. A watch list is an entity that allows you to classify individuals by arbitrary criteria, e.g., wanted, suspects, etc.

  2. Upload records of individuals to the global record index and add them to watch lists. See Record Index.

Connect FindFace to Remote Systems

Integrate FindFace with remote facial recognition systems. In this case, the server known as a puppeteer will be pushing record index data to remote servers known as puppets. In return, it will be pulling recognition events matching with the records.

FindFace in Action

  1. Create case files and process video footages from crime scenes to define participants.

  2. Search for faces across the system.

  3. Compare two faces and verify that they belong to the same individual.

  4. Build detailed reports on search results and record index.

  5. Harness the FindFace comprehensive and searchable audit log to enhance your system protection.

  6. View alerts from remote facial recognition systems and search remote systems for specific individuals. See Remote Alerting and Remote Search.

Basic Maintenance

  1. Manually purge old data.

  2. Regularly backup the database.
