Exploring Facial Recognition in Unifi Software

Today, we're delving into the fascinating world of facial recognition within Unifi software. If you've been keeping up with the latest releases, you may have noticed the exciting addition of facial recognition to Unifi Protect. Much like the introduction of license plate detection to AI cameras, this new feature comes with its own set of considerations to ensure seamless functionality.

Let's jump right in and explore how you can harness the power of facial recognition to enhance your security system. In our latest YouTube video, I walk you through the process step by step. From understanding how the system detects faces to optimizing your camera setup for maximum efficiency, we leave no stone unturned.

First things first, it's essential to note that facial detection is exclusive to AI cameras and won't work with the AI360. In our demonstration, we utilize the AI Theta Pro Tele, a standout performer for indoor facial recognition. With its zoom capabilities, this camera proves to be a game-changer in capturing clear, identifiable faces.

Placement is key. Whether it's a front door, back door, or entryway, positioning your camera in the right spot at the right distance is crucial for accurate detections. We share valuable insights into framing your setup for success, ensuring that every person who passes through is captured effectively.

But it doesn't stop there. Our tutorial dives into the nitty-gritty of recognition management. We demonstrate how to add new individuals, mark them as "persons of interest" for enhanced security alerts, and even merge faces to streamline the identification process.

As we navigate through the interface, I highlight some key features and offer suggestions for further improvements. Plus, we address potential privacy concerns and invite you to join the conversation in the comments section.
