BriefCam’s real-time alerting capabilities enable organizations to proactively respond to situational changes in their environment, while effectively balancing sensitivity, accuracy, and efficiency. BriefCam’s alerts can be integrated with a VMS or PSIM alerting module as well as almost any messaging system.


Real -Time Alerts

Trigger real-time, rule-based alerts for face recognition, line crossing, vehicles, people of interest and object count, in time sensitive situations.

Smart Alerts

Respond to complex situational changes in the environment through buildable rule configurations, based on any number of search filters, including face and license plate recognition and more.


Send notifications to messaging services, and VMS alarms area. Integration with Genetec Security Center, Milestone XProtect, and IndigoVision Control Center.

Face Recognition

Powerful real-time Facial Recognition capabilities provide best-in-class face matching to rapidly pinpoints people of interest using digital images extracted from the video or from external sources.


License Plate Recognition

Receive alerts for “in the wild” license plate recognition, identifying license plates through watchlists, existing video or data uploads.

Line Crossing

Activate alerts when objects cross a demarcation in a pre-defined direction to drive perimeter protection and directional object count.

People Counting

People Counting

Configure count-based rules to monitor the increase or decrease of people in a pre-defined range of view or area – ideal for tracking queues and waiting areas.

line crossing

Proximity Identification

Alert when people are in proximity to one another for a period higher than a predefined threshold. Combine with time-based alerts to only notify when this action occurs too frequently.

Face Mask Detection

Face Mask Detection

Detect and alert when face masks are detected, or not detected on an individual, in real-time.

Watchlists & Rule Configuration

Scalable face recognition watchlist management and powerful alert rule configuration enables rapid notification of events in your environment.

One-Click Case Creation

Accelerate time to target with one-click case creation based on an alert, and rapidly review all daily alert events with a video synopsis in minutes.
