Facial recognition with AWS or GCP

Post by mcpaha » Sun Nov 22, 2020 1:38 pm

Hi!

Anybody know any projects which are using AWS or GCP platforms for facial and/or object recognition? I'd like to test an idea for sending alarm.jpg files to the facial recognition and add that information f.e. to my Home Assistant. I really do not want to do that with my Intel NUC because of CPU needs and AWS or GCP is really really cheap for this purposes...

I do not have personal knowledge how to do this but would it be creat?

I can see how that would work. It would be simple to upload, trigger a function and get AWS, or whichever, to do the work.

However, take a look at ZM Event Notifcation Server and a Coral TPU as another option.

Yeah... basically it would be camera software free solution? I am running my ZM with Ubuntu and it would be quiet easy to create "script or something" which checking certain directory with subdirs if there is new jpg or certain name jpg:s and send those to AWS or GCP.

I think I do not have powerfull pc for doing that myself...

The TPU would do the work.

This is beyond your requested functionality, but contains helpful information https://github.com/goruck/smart-zoneminder
