The FaceFirst Difference

FaceFirst’s best-in-class face recognition system vastly exceeds other traditional and biometric security systems.


Enterprise ready

Flexible architecture supports advanced use cases in highly differentiated environments.

Massively scalable

Maintains high performance matching against vast databases across unlimited locations.

Discrete placement

Achieves highly accurate matches at long range.

Group identity detection

Simultaneously catalogs and matches multiple visitors simultaneously in areas with high foot traffic.

Database performance

Real-time matching against face recognition databases of 25 million images.

Anonymous visitor cataloging

Automatically indexes and purges non-recognized visitors.

Automated visual optimization

Instantly self-selects optimal images.

Accessory detection

Maintains high accuracy despite hats; hoodies; beards; glasses; scarves; partial face occlusion and more.

Face recognition authentication

Instantly confirms and authenticates identity.


Mobile threat alerts

Instant surveillance match alerts on Android and iOS phones and tablets.

Configurable security directives

Associate specific match data types with automated security directives.

Match threshold sensitivity

Adjust alerting triggers to specific match confidence scores.

Mobile detection

Enroll biometric facial images to a cloud or on-premise watchlist from a mobile device.



Designed to prevent profiling by race/age/gender or national origin.


Image data is encrypted at rest and during transmission. Biometric templates cannot be converted into an image during a data breach.

Approval process

Provisional enrollment functionality ensures appropriate management levels approve watchlist inclusion and creates an audit trail to prevent unauthorized usage.

Data purging

Watchlist images can be purged from the database according to a strict timeframe.

Best practices

Complete training and documentation on operational best practices with each installation.


Match event history

Identify match and event trends for individuals or groups across thousands of locations.

Watchlist segmentation

Organize biometric WatchList by group zone location or other customizable tagging criteria.

Location reporting

Search for individual or group matches across multiple zones or physical locations.

Keyword and visual search

Search for historic visitor matches by image or keyword to quickly find valuable video evidence.

Face Recognition APIs

Easily integrates with 3rd party systems.
