Additional modules in Xeoma.

Xeoma is a multi-functional and flexible software that contains many options and functions to build a perfect video surveillance system. One of Xeoma’s functions is possibility to use additional modules that will be described in this article.

Check conditions of using additional modules

face recognition

Additional modules are professional features and modules most of which are based on artificial intelligence and deep machine learning.
These are the modules:

• Face recognition

This feature enables use of the “Artificial intelligence” option in the “Face recognition” module. Should be purchased per number of faces you’ll have in the database on a server (in addition to number of faces available with each Xeoma Pro license), for each server separately. If you purchase Xeoma Pro license (without purchasing additional module “Face recognition”), you’ll have the following possibility to use the module: 1. If you use “Statistical analysis of the image”, you can use face detector for as many faces as you need (number of faces for recognition is not limited) 2. If you use “Artificial intelligence” options in “Face recognition” module, it’ll be able to recognize as many faces as your Xeoma Pro license allows. Also, this additional module can be used with Xeoma Standard license as well.

xeoma_software_advices Did you know that “Face recognition (Artificial intelligence)” module can be purchased cheaper than usual “Face recognition (Statistical analysis)” available in Pro version? Since additional modules can be used with Standard license, you can buy Standard + “Face recognition (AI)” additional module’s license, and it’ll be cheaper than purchasing Pro license separately.

Licenses can be purchased here

• Search in archives by photo

Enables option in the archive viewer to search through recordings made with the “Face recognition” module for people by uploading their photo. 1 piece per server (for any number of cameras). This option can be checked in archive menu – Search by photo.

face recognition

• Emotion recognition

Enables use of the “Face detector (Emotions)” module that can recognize emotions (e.g. happiness, sadness, anger etc.) and allows using search by emotions in archive recordings. Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately.

face recognition

• FaceID

Enables use of the “Face ID” module for comparison of faces in camera’s field of view with photo from an access card. Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately. Also requires license for a “Smart-card reader” or “QR code recognition” module.

face ip

• Object recognition

Enables use of the “Object recognizer” module that can identify a person, animal, vehicle etc. (and search by objects in archive recordings). Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately. This module works with “Object detector”.

face ip

• Moving to PTZ preset

Enables use of the “Moving to PTZ preset” module. Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately.

face ip

• Smart card reader

Enables use of the “Smart card reader” module. Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately.

face recognition

• QR code recognition

Enables use of the “QR code recognition” module. Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately.

face id

• SmartHome – RIF+

Enables use of the “SmartHome – RIF+” module for work with the RIF+ access control systems. Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately.

face id

• Camera-Embedded Detector

Enables use of the “Camera-Embedded Detector” module to use ONVIF camera’s built-in detectors and control external devices connected to the camera. Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately.

face recognition

• GPIO module

Enables use of the “GPIO module” to control pins in ARM-based devices (Raspberry Pi, Banana Pi, Odroid etc.). Should be purchased per number of cameras that will be using it, for each server separately.

Additional modules were created to save your money! Now you can purchase only necessary modules for your video surveillance system.

Conditions of using additional modules:

You need activated Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro licenses to activate additional modules. Additional modules will not work without Xeoma license.

Additional modules don’t work with Xeoma Lite and free version of Xeoma.

Additional modules are available for testing in the trial edition of Xeoma with a limited testing time.

You’ll need to use latest version of Xeoma (or not older than 19.3.7) to use Additional modules. Renewal for Xeoma licenses can be purchased here

When you purchase Additional module, total number of cameras of your actual Xeoma license will not increase, i.e. if you already have Xeoma Standard or Xeoma Pro license for e.g. 8 cameras and you purchase let’s say “Face recognition (Artificial intelligence)” additional module for 1 camera, then in total you will have the same 8 cameras available and 1 camera from them will be able to use additional module. The only one additional module that can be used for all cameras is “Search by photo” in the archive (this feature is available in archive menu).

If you already have Pro license, then “Face recognition” module is already available in Xeoma for your license, but it’ll have only “Statistical analysis of the image” option available in the module. More accurate “Artificial intelligence” option (using artificial intelligence and deep machine learning) will be available after purchasing additional module.

Each additional module comes as a license that has its own renewal period (during that period you can update Xeoma version and use this license) – 1, 3 or 10 years. Renewal period is counted for each additional module separately (same for any Xeoma license – each license has its own renewal period).

If you use Xeoma Cloud, you can also purchase additional modules – simply contact us to get additional information, we’ll gladly help.
Additional modules can be purchased for Xeoma Pro “Your Cloud” as well.

How do I test additional modules? Trial version of Xeoma allows testing all additional modules for 1 hour, then settings will be reset and 1 more hour will be available etc. As for the search by photo in the archive – this additional module can be tested in Trial version as well, but the search will display only one latest incident where this person (face) was detected.

As you can see, Xeoma video surveillance software is developing more and more each day, offering customers all of the latest innovative features and capabilities. Currently, Artificial intelligence and deep machine learning are ones of the most advanced technologies in the world of video surveillance. You can purchase additional modules here.
