Face Blur for Archives

Archives now support the ability to blur faces upon creation

Updated over a week ago

Archives support the ability to blur faces upon creation. The maximum archive length when this option is selected is 10 minutes.

When an archive is created with the option to Blur All Faces selected, two archives will be created. The first will be a standard archive with no faces blurred, and the second will be an archive of the same time period but with all faces blurred.

Note: An archive with blurred faces can take up to an hour to create.

Creating an archive with blurred faces

  1. Select the desired camera

  2. Select the Archive tab

  3. Choose New Archive

  4. Select the date and time of the archive
    Note: The maximum archive length with blurred faces is 10 minutes

  5. Click Blur All Faces

  6. Select Archive

Face blurring works best when there are no more than a few people in each frame. It also works best when there are no objects partially occluding a face, such as a baseball cap. If needed, third-party tools can be used after the fact for touch-ups which should take considerably less time than manually blurring each face in an entire archive.
