Add value to your quotes by offering face detection to your customers. Customers want more for their money and face detection gives your customers just that. Differentiate yourself from the competition. 

Easy Setup

The word analytics may sound scary but the installation and setup could not get any easier. Megapixall analytics will offer your customers a wide range of features that they simply did not consider. 

Fast Search

Finding events let alone individuals can be very hard to do when you have months of video. Megapixall Face Detection allows you to easily find detected faces and view them as thumbnails to quickly playback an event. 


Use Face Detection together with alerts to push notifications directly to your customers mobile phones. Once a face is detected in a pre-determined area you can have our NVR send your customer a push alert for instant viewing and playback.

Once you find the individual you can quickly press on the thumbnail of interest to playback a quick clip of that scene. This cuts down on search time and take you directly to the events that you need to playback quickly.
