People analytics uses powerful edge-based camera capabilities to detect people, faces, and filter results based on clothing color, apparent sex, and the presence of backpacks. To have these extra filters enabled, contact our Support team.

People Counting

When scrubbing through a camera's historical video clips, green bounding boxes will appear over all detected people. In addition, the scrubber will display a number indicating the number of people detected in the frame. The blue lines that appear as you are scrubbing through a clip give you a sense of which parts of the clip contain the most people activity.

Enable Person History

All Verkada cameras perform people detection (as outlined above) out of the box. However, to enable more complex analytics, such as the ability to search for faces, and for people by clothing color, person history must be turned on.

You will first need to enable the feature globally on your org and then on the individual cameras.
