Age Recognizer in Xeoma video surveillance software


Age Recognizer


age_recognition_module_icon “Age Recognizer” is an additional module in Xeoma based on Artificial Intelligence and neural networks.
This module is designed to recognize people’s age in realtime using computer vision.

Such recognition can be used in shopping centers or drug stores, helping to raise sales. When visitors come, their age will be identified, and the system will launch the ad, that is most likely to be interesting for people of that age. Also, this module can be a good helper in identification of retired people, who decided to go outside during quarantine, when it’s safer for their health to stay home. This module can work in conjunction with “Sound alarm”, “HTTP request” or “GPIO” modules, setting necessary reactions.



Age recognition in Xeoma

“Age Recognizer” module is based on Artificial intelligence. This module finds human faces in the camera view, displays their most probable age, and if the estimated age is in the selected range, the module passes the signal down the chain to subsequent modules. The module needs additional resources to work that will be downloaded automatically.

No special equipment required – regular commonly available off-shelf computers can be used.
No special camera required – any brand or model supporting standard streaming protocols can be used. Just make sure that the image is clear.

A wide range of supported operating systems: the feature will work in 64-bit Windows, Linux or Mac OSX machines. See list of supported operating systems here
Not available for Linux/ARM systems. Contact us if you need it for an unsupported OS.

Xeoma's Age detection works on your computer and saves network bandwidth by not sending images to a Cloud
Saves bandwidth:
All done on your machine, no need to connect to any cloud servers.
Xeoma's Age detection works with realtime video streams
Realtime video:
Works with real-time video streams. The more fps, the better!

The Age detection feature can be combined with other modules for more statistical information
Flexibility and versatility:
The module can be combined with other people analyzing and statistics modules works in different conditions.


High-speed processing and analysis, fully automated work. Xeoma’s “Age Recognizer” module has very flexible and simple settings, so you can choose the necessary age range to be detected. Besides that, as there’s a possibility to specify the detection zone.


Age detection in Xeoma No special equipment or a powerful standalone server is required. Recognition load is on average 20% more than that of a regular camera in the program. Use our calculator here


Age detection in Xeoma No special cameras with embedded recognition detectors required. Recognition processes are conducted on Xeoma’s side. High quality video stream is enough. Point the camera as perpendicularly as possible towards the objects.


Age detection in Xeoma Affordable price. Depending on the required conditions and the desired result, you can choose Xeoma Pro or Xeoma Standard licenses and purchase the additional module “Age Recognizer”. Check prices for Xeoma Pro and Standard and for Additional module “Age Recognizer”



1. Add the ‘Age recognizer’ module in the modules chain in Xeoma:


2. Adjust necessary parameters in the module’s settings:


– Go to the module’s settings and click ‘Download additional resources’, then you’ll be able to configure other parameters
– Tick ‘Use the high resolution stream from archive’ to use the 2nd stream (usually, higher resolution one) from the ‘Universal camera’ module’s settings
– Adjust Minimal age of skipping and Maximal age of skipping. ‘Age recognizer’ will detect a person’s age and pass the signal to the next modules in chain. E.g. you can configure age range between 25 to 45 years, so the module will be triggered when there’s a person with the recognized age of 30 (25-45 years range).
– Tick ‘Save data in CSV report’ to collect data in a log file.

How to install the camera to use Age recognizer


Here are the ways to increase the successful recognition rate:

• You can place the camera as close as possible to the area where you need to detect a person’s age in (preferably at right angle to the face)
• Place camera at right angle, face should occupy a large part of the frame
• Lighting should not be very dim or with a lot of flashes (you can use special HLC (High Light Compensation) cameras (often marked ‘For LPR/ANPR’))
• Use long-focus objective for a better view
