Xailient, a software provider specializing in AI computer vision products, announced today that it partnered with Abode Systems, a smart home security company, to bring face recognition tech to its new video doorbells. This integration will enable the new Abode wireless video doorbells to feature face recognition at the edge, ensuring accurate identification while safeguarding user privacy, the company says.
According to Herman Yau, Xailient VP of Strategic Partnerships, “Orchestrait Face Recognition runs on the edge and only recognizes users that have granted consent. Convenience and privacy are now both possible for our partners.”
Chris Carney, Abode Systems CEO, echoed Yau’s sentiments. “Partnering with Xailient has allowed us to deliver advanced facial recognition while still protecting our customers’ privacy,” he said. “The Xailient team’s expertise in AI and strong focus on consumer data privacy gives us the ability to focus on our products and the implementation of different technologies to better serve our customers.”
Including Orchestrait technology in Abode’s wireless video doorbells will help mitigate compliance risks across jurisdictions, a significant concern for Abode’s customers. Features and availability for the Orchestrait integration will become available in 2023.
Xailient’s says its products allow innovators to market AI computer vision products faster and with less investment. Its facial recognition technology will enable companies to enhance customer personalization while protecting data privacy.
Abode Systems is a part of the Nice group, an Italian multinational smart home and building automation and home security company with operations in 24 countries. Carney founded Abode in 2014, and its product portfolio includes security cameras with comprehensive smart home functionality.
