TacID Guard Dog

TacID Guard Dog is a watch and alert solution capable of monitoring and tracking multiple persons while instantly performing facial recognition against very large databases.

TacID Guard Dog is a watch and alert solution capable of monitoring and tracking multiple persons from one or more cameras (Webcam, IP or CCTV), while instantly performing facial recognition against very large databases. Guard dog was designed to address access control and watch list operating modes independently or in tandem. The access control mode indicates authorized users by visibly displaying and optionally triggering actions (e.g. audible sound alert). The watch list mode can search multiple databases. When operating in dual mode, subjects are first checked against watch lists then identified for access. Guard Dog supports configurable alerts and triggers upon facial recognition matches. The alert platform sends instant messages via SMS, email and/or displays visual and audible alerts. The action platform can trigger any Internet of Things (IOT) compliant device such as a door relay, or flood light, etc.

TacID Workstation

TacID Workstation is large-scale facial recognition software that runs natively on Windows and Linux. The software allows an operator to create a database of millions of images on a single laptop and then drag-and-drop photos for searching against the database. Results are displayed in a gallery format. If the operator identifies a match, a match report can be created in PDF or HTML format.



TacID Workstation is drag-and-drop software for face matching based on a state-of-the-art facial recognition algorithm developed for use on constrained and unconstrained face images. TacID Workstation users can easily drag-and-drop probe images to get match results in seconds even with databases as large as 50 million faces. The user can specify the maximum number of candidates, minimum threshold similarity score and specific data to search within the database. Match candidates are displayed in order of decreasing similarity with similarity scores and a button for accessing relevant records. When satisfied, the user can press a button to generate a PDF match report that includes the original image, the probe face, a selected candidate match with the associated record, and relevant metadata.

 Features & Benefits

  • Client-Server system capable of operating with or without a network connection
  • Scalable: Multiple workstations, one server
  • Can be hosted on a local server or in the cloud and accessible using a thick client or web client
