Transform your surveillance with Synology Face Recognition

Smart Office Applications

  • Monitor heavily trafficked areas of the office, such as entrances and exits. When non-employees enter the office, the system can automatically issue a notification to alert the administrator.
  • Easily manage employee information using Synology Face Recognition;  administrators can import employee information into the face database in batches either manually, or from the local DSM or the domain/LDAP.
Smart Office Applications

Improve Campus Security

  • Record faces as they appear onsite. Security personnel can use facial photos to find identity matches and view information in the database.
  • Create a watchlist of prohibited persons. Set alerts for security personnel to be notified immediately once blacklisted people are identified onsite.
