When the system identifies a person for the first time, it automatically creates a unique anonymous profile on them, which includes their face, attributes, demographics, customer history, and a random ID number (with consent, users can attach a name to the profile). Profiles allow users to set clearance levels specifying entrance privileges on a room-by room basis. A simple search of a profile name or number will return every saved recording of the relevant person. Profiles can be grouped so actions can be set for a group of people, for example, businesses can make a VIP list or a blacklist, and make the system send alerts if guests that require special attention enter the building. In large events, profiles can be used to find missing persons, such as children separated from their parents.
