What we do best


Touchless Access Control

Face-based access control is more secure, and more user friendly, than physical authentication methods.

Integrate SAFR with existing secure access technology to allow registered individuals to unlock a door using just their face — or enable dual factor authentication. Learn more ›


Automated Surveillance

Manual monitoring is expensive and inefficient. AI can perform real-time, automated identification of persons of interest and prevent security incidents, freeing up your security team to do more.

Integrate with a VMS or deploy standalone as your security monitoring solution — on one, or thousands of cameras. Learn more ›

Identity Authentication

Identity Authentication

Leverage SAFR SDKs and Web APIs to enable face-based identity authentication for remote and in-person workflows.

Ensure maximum security for bring your own device (BYOD) applications such as remote testing user verification. Learn more ›

With automated real-time alerts, more efficient post-event analysis, and ongoing actionable insights, SAFR frees up security and operations teams to do more.

COVID-19 response

As the world responds to the COVID-19 pandemic and more people wear masks in public, computer vision platforms need to learn to recognize new things.

SAFR has a 95% mask detection rate and recognizes masked faces with 98.85% accuracy — ensuring no disruption of security workflows and unlocking new COVID-19 prevention use cases.

Masked Recognition

Get started

SAFR brings high-performance computer vision to virtually any camera. Deploy SAFR’s core features as a standalone solution via the SAFR platform, via our SDKs and web APIs, integrated with many leading video management systems, or out of the box on a camera already running SAFR such as the AXIS P3255.
