A high-resolution video camera monitors all areas in and outside the store. The footage is then stored for easy searching, with facial recognition software that will capture your mug shot without you knowing or permission if necessary; it also records license plates of cars passing by to help catch criminals operating on our streets!
What’s Creepy About Them
Gaze trackers are hidden in small holes, and they can detect which brands you’re looking at; how long for each brand or item on display? Even there are mannequins whose eyes are cameras that capture your age group, sex (female), ethnicity (white) facial expressions when passing by!.
The video can be merged with other data of the store, such as footage of you at the cash register plus transaction details. Your face and vehicle license plate could link this information together in order to track your every move when it comes down for security purposes which were previously unknown until last October where The Federal Trade Commission recommended clear disclosure about how videos stored by retailers would work alongside opt-outs from consumers or consent given under certain circumstance like if there were children present during online shopping sessions.

Stores are using video customer counts to set staffing and reduce cashier-line backups. The system can also nab shoplifters, identity thieves, or people who make injury claims in order for them, not fraud costs (and prices) down!
Who’s Using Them
Big chain stores are trying video analytics, but they want their own privacy. For example Macy’s employs the service of an analytic system from Cisco which is marketed as intrusion-free and providing data in a secure manner according to printed promotional material seen by Gartner Research Director Robert Hetu when researching this topic for his company’s most recent report on retailing trends . However Target refused our repeated requests about its use or policies concerning collected information recorded through store cameras – even though it says clearly right there within its Privacy Statement that these will be used!We hope this article was helpful for you.
