Qolsys, a provider of security and smart home technology, announced that, in partnership with Alarm.com, disarm images captured by the built-in 5MP panel camera on the IQ Panel 2 Plus now include face recognition powered by Alarm.com.

“This is a tremendous upgrade to our combined solution,” said Qolsys SVP of Sales & Marketing Mike Hackett. “It again demonstrates software’s power to unlock hardware’s potential and provide innovative features that increase customer engagement.”

Alarm.com’s Unexpected Activity Alerts for Face Recognition empower property owners to monitor for unauthorized code sharing and receive alerts whenever the person using a disarm code is different from the person assigned to that code. These alerts include a disarm image taken at the panel, so customers can see who accessed their home and take immediate action as needed. This feature is currently available to customers using the Qolsys IQ Panel 2.

“We’re using face recognition to enhance Unexpected Activity Alerts, which help our service provider partners deliver even more value to their customers,” said Daniel Kerzner, chief product officer at Alarm.com.  “Our technology delivers a new layer of protection by proactively alerting property owners to unexpected activity at their home or business — in this case, unauthorized user code sharing. Alarm.com’s advanced AI securely analyzes images captured by the panel camera, quickly recognizes authorized users, then flags non-matches with Unexpected Activity Alerts to customers.”

The Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus and a full line of security and home automation devices are available today. Visit www.qolsys.com to learn more about the products and where to purchase them.
