People Analytics expands upon Verkada's existing advanced AI People counting tool to allow users to search and filter based on different attributes, including gender, clothing color, and a person’s face.

Using People Analytics

The D40 and CM61 are able to find people in frame. Once detected, the high-resolution image is cropped and sent to the cloud-based Command platform. Images continuously update in a camera’s People History view where you can view and filter results. Below is a list of what you can do:

  • Filter by date/time, gender, and upper body/lower body clothing colors. Results are displayed starting with the highest confidence matches within each day. A search icon on the image indicates that the person matches other images seen by the camera - clicking on it will return the results across days. 
  • Use the Face Search tab to see thumbnails of people seen in frame. Clicking on a thumbnail finds all matches for that face, sorted by date. Snapshots can be downloaded using the icon, or clicking on the thumbnail will load the original video. 
  • Upload an image to find a person of interest in camera history.

  2. Go to Settings

Note: People Analytics requires high resolution images which are incompatible with WDR and Audio storage. Audio must be disabled before enabling People Analytics to provide adequate storage capacity for high resolution imaging. 

Once enabled, the camera will load new firmware, reboot, and begin analyzing people and displaying them in People History. 

The People History results will be analyzed for matching faces and thumbnails. It will begin populating the Face Search tab as matches are identified. Please note People Analytics will consume additional bandwidth as new firmware is deployed initially.
