Wavestore’s VMS integrates with a wide range of innovative technology solutions, including cameras, video analytics, alarm management and more. The goal is to provide resellers and systems integrators – and their customers – with the best of the best technology out there, in a simple and seamless way. One of our most recent, and most exciting, integrations is with Herta Security’s facial recognition software.
Herta Security, headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, is one of the world’s leading developers of advanced facial recognition technology. Thanks to the recent integration with Wavestore’s VMS, the two powerful software platforms can work together to identify persons of interest in banks, casinos, retail locations, transportation facilities and more.
How does it work? Herta’s highly accurate facial recognition software detects and matches faces to databases of known offenders. (The software even works in a dense crowd and is capable of detecting up to 20 people at a time.) Once a face is detected, Wavestore’s VMS time/date stamps the image and stores it alongside any relevant recorded video of the person in question. Meanwhile, the VMS automatically alerts security personnel of the person’s presence, enabling them to respond in real-time. Conversely, the system can also generate an alarm when a face isn’t recognized. This would be particularly useful for customers who need to closely monitor a restricted or high-security area.
Depending on each customer’s needs, a Wavestore-Herta solution could take many forms, providing fast, accurate and robust for anyone with advanced video surveillance, access control or marketing needs. The Herta facial recognition software is already used in a variety of installations throughout the world, including safe cities, airports, train and metro stations, prisons, banks, casinos, sports stadiums and shopping malls. It’s also widely used in military, police and forensic applications.
We’re excited that the new Wavestore-Herta integration provides Wavestore installers and integrators a chance to seamlessly incorporate facial recognition into their product offering. Meanwhile, customers benefit from the opportunity to enhance their systems and create a level of automation, which can help them save resources.
The Herta facial recognition software is currently one of the many third-party software options available on the Wavestore VMS. For more information on WavestoreUSA’s many value-added technology partnerships, click here.
