Real-Time Facial Recognition and Analytics
QVR Face is a smart facial recognition solution featuring real-time live streaming video analytics from connected cameras. You can use video analytics to set profiles, groups, and event notifications for instant facial recognition. Third-party partners can use the QNAP API to leverage data from QVR Face to build intelligent door access systems, member identification systems, or smart digital signage for applications including automatic door access management, attendance management, and smart retail services.
Build A Smart Facial Recognition System with One NAS
Simply install the QVR Face solution on a QNAP NAS to analyze RTSP video streams from IP cameras, USB cameras or video recordings saved on a NAS. Facial recognition and video analytics are performed on the NAS, making it easier and more cost-effective to build a facial recognition system.

Real-Time Video Analytics
QNAP NAS features powerful computing power for performing on-premise video analytics. No need for cloud computing services or extra computing accelerator cards to achieve real-time video analytics, hence lowering the overall system deployment costs.
Simultaneous Multi-Channel Analytics
QVR Face can simultaneously analyze multiple video streams and identify multiple registered profiles and unknown faces at the same time. You can use the video analytics results to create blacklists or VIP lists.
Private Cloud Data Storage
QVR Face’s video analytics and registered profiles (including identified person's names and photos) are directly saved to on-premise storage. QNAP NAS also provides efficient data protection mechanism to ensure the privacy and security of the facial recognition data.
Easy API Integration
Third-party partners can leverage QVR Face’s facial analytics data (including Event, Metadata Notify and Result) via API to enable automated service management, such as door access systems, member identification systems, or digital signage system.
Identity Authentication Made Easy with Profile Database
You can create facial recognition analytic tasks of live streams from cameras or recordings saved on the NAS in QVR Face. With the video analytics results, you can create profiles of identified persons, set groups (such as VIP groups, unregistered faces, or blacklists) and event notifications. The system will send alert notifications when a person meeting the configured facial identification rules is detected. (Facial identification rule conditions include a person’s gender, age, and group category.) You can also check the video analytics report for history video analytics results.
Note: For security and data privacy concerns, only NAS admin group members have permission to access and use the QVR Face application.
Supports RTSP Streaming Cameras
QVR Face supports Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) and multiple video file types, enabling easy integration of your NAS system with QVR Face for video analytics. You can also use the QNAP QUSBCam2 app to enable RTSP on a USB camera, making intelligent facial recognition systems more budget-friendly.
1. Using wide-angle cameras may reduce facial recognition distance.
2. QVR Face does not support fish-eye cameras.
3. QVR Face does not support H.265 video analysis.
The facial recognition solution, QVR Face, can be integrated into smart offices, residential communities, research institutions, and retail stores to provide intelligent attendance management, door access control management, VIP welcome systems and smart retail services.
- Use facial recognition for attendance management to reduce clock-in and clock-out time during rush hours.
- Set VIP groups and notifications. When high-level managers are identified, the system will automatically send out alerts.
- Event reports are generated and enable event screenshot reviews.
- Set VIP groups and notifications. When an important person or regular customer visits, the system will send notifications to remind you about welcome preparations.
- Integrate QVR Face with digital signage solution to provide tailored promotion information based on age and gender.
- Retailers can group and rank unregistered faces, or register them as regular profiles for further market promotion. Create customized sales strategies by further integrating flow statistics, POS sales records and heat map data.
Door Access Management
- Replace key or ID card-based door access systems with facial recognition technology by integrating QVR Face with door access systems.
- Set a stranger list or blacklist. When a person on the list is nearby, the security guard will be alerted to take immediate action, thus securing the safety of the premises.
