SAFR Facial Recognition

With vigilant 24/7 monitoring powered by exceptionally accurate facial recognition optimized for live video, SAFR for Security delivers a seamless integrated experience with Genetec Security Center.

SAFR for Security can be deployed on a single computer to monitor a handful of IP cameras, or scaled to thousands of cameras in a distributed architecture hosted on premises, in the hybrid edge/SAFR cloud, or the hybrid edge/customer cloud. All data passed through SAFR is protected with AES-256 encryption in transit and at rest. The platform also provides actionable data for live analytics of traffic volumes, demographic composition, dwell times, and data exports for further reporting.

SAFR for Security is compatible with Genetec Security Center Version 5.7.

Video Overlays

The SAFR for Security VMS integration enables live video overlays that identify strangers, threats, and concerns, employees, VIPs, or tagged individuals.

Alarms & Notifications

Security teams can customize real-time alarms and be instantly notified when persons of interest enter or leave a monitored area. No matter the use case – multi-factor authentication, building system integration, unobtrusive monitoring, threat detection or more – notifications can be further customized to initiate powerful actions.

Automatic Bookmarks

Teams can create automatic bookmarks for a variety of conditional scenarios. Bookmarks and searchable metadata enable more efficient investigative and forensic work with recorded video.

Live Analytics

SAFR provides actionable data for live analytics with rich metadata. View traffic volumes, demographic composition, dwell times, and data exports. Configure powerful custom actions and alarms based on recognition events, from turning on lights to initiating a building lockdown.

Features and benefits

SAFR for Security helps security teams stay active and engaged by reducing common issues like:
  • Alarm fatigue;
  • False positives/negatives;
  • Access-point delays;
  • Tailgating;
  • and more.
SAFR for Security taps the power of AI to instantly detect and match millions of faces in real time, even in challenging conditions where faces are in motion, at different angles, under poor lighting conditions, or partially obscured. SAFR delivers a 99.86 percent accuracy rate in under 100 milliseconds — 3-5 times faster than competing NIST-tested algorithms.

By recognizing actual security events as they happen, SAFR empowers security teams to be more situationally aware — so they can respond immediately.

SAFR must be installed on a computer running on the same networks as Genetec. Once installed, the customer sets SAFR to monitor specific IP cameras. SAFR then pushes recognition events to the Genetec interface, so if a security guard is viewing a live view of a SAFR-enabled camera in Genetec, they will see video overlays in the Genetec interface.

Customers can set up SAFR to automatically bookmark people by type (threat, VIP, unknown, etc.) for later viewing.

Customers can also create custom actions and alarms in Genetec that respond when SAFR recognizes individuals. For example, customers can configure Genetec alarms to alert security personnel when a threat is detected on a SAFR-enabled camera, and trigger any number of pre-programmed security responses.
