Face Detection

Face detection is to detect if there is any human face appearing in the video. This technology adopts a deep learning algorithm to support face detection, tracking, optimization and capturing, and then output the best face snapshot.

Face Recognition Dahua

Face Recognition technology extracts the features of captured faces and compares them with those in face database to recognize the person identity

Perimeter Protection

Automatically filtering out false alarms caused by animals, rustling leaves, bright lights, etc. Enables system to perform secondary recognition for the targets. Improving alarm accuracy.

SMD Plus

With intelligent algorithm, Dahua Smart Motion Detection technology can categorize the targets that trigger motion detection and filter the motion detection alarm triggered by non-concerned targets to realize effective and accurate alarm.

AI Search

Support AI seach by metadata of different targets or uploading face pictures to device and comparing them with recorded faces by similarity. Enable operators to quickly and easily search through multi channels and long duration, efficiently find out when and where a person of interest appeard.

Smart Fan

The NVR is equipped with a smart fan to achieve high cooling efficiency. It automatically turns on or turns off according to CPU and ambient temperature. The fan is long-lasting and low noise, reducing maintenance costs and improving the user experience.
