We are pleased to announce that the Herta-Genetec FacRec solution by Herta Security has met our rigorous performance criteria and is now certified with the Genetec DAP group.

Herta Security is a world leader in the development of facial recognition solutions. Based in Barcelona, Spain, Herta also has offices in Madrid, London, and Los Angeles. The company offers accurate, and robust, end user-oriented solutions for video management, access control, and marketing requirements.

Herta's FaceRecRestApi plugin offers end users a platform that integrates video management and facial recognition tools together in one system. By using this integration, users can send alarms generated by Herta to Security Center, letting it remain the central point for alarm management.

FaceRec main features:

  • Add any camera matching the minimum requirements to Herta BioSurveillance NEXT to be used for facial detection and recognition. Herta BioSurveillance NEXT analyzes live frames, searches for faces, and compares the results to its "Subjects" configuration.

  • Make mapping configurations between Herta and Genetec using a configuration UI. To do so, users must validate access to the Genetec FaceRec plugin and validate the connection to an active Herta instance. This configuration is saved in a JSON file used by the console application in charge of relaying facial recognition alarms to the Genetec FaceRec plugin.

  • Receive alarms in Security Center from Herta BioSurveillance NEXT through the console application. The user can then see these facial events directly in the "Face detections activities" or "Face recognition activities" tasks in Security Desk.
