What Is List Notification


List Notifications are based in part on facial recognition technology. Using this feature, a camera can be set to recognize stored faces from a preconfigured authorized list of persons. Upon detection, the video management software can instantly trigger a notification. Operators can be prompted to greet a welcome VIP or be notified of an unexpected incident and respond immediately.


This sort of system is accurate, easy to use, and solves real-world problems. It meets specific and unique requirements in multiple scenarios – for example, in health-care safety, preventing memory care patients in nursing homes from wandering away, or in business, rendering custom services to VIP guests in high-end hotels and fashion boutiques.

How target identification was managed in legacy systems


Conventional CCTV systems offered little value in automated alarm notifications when a VIP or person-of-interest appeared. Historically, without facial recognition technology, security personnel had only their eyes and a fuzzy, black-and-white live-feed to identify persons.

How an AI-equipped, video-based list notification works today
What Is List Notification

A video-based list notification system equipped with Hikvision’s AI technology will recognize listed persons and notify staff of their presence.


Here is how it works:


1.Operators upload face images into the system, as when guests of a high-end hotel start a membership program, or residents of a nursing home register for care;

2.Lists of guests deemed VIPs by the hotel or nursing home residents who need extra care are created using uploaded images;

3.Specially-equipped cameras detect faces in the lobby of the hotel or at the exits of the nursing home, and send the information to a video recorder;

4.The recorder will compare these images with the libraries, and,

5.When a listed person is detected, an instant notification to authorized operators will be triggered.

As a result, in these two examples, the VIP guest will receive the service they signed up for, and the at-risk nursing home patient will not be able to wander away from care and into a dangerous situation.
