Facial Recognition API

Integrate advanced biometrics with our facial recognition API. Detect faces, make face templates, and compare them to photos, IDs, and live video.

Powering ID Verification Technology

Our facial recognition API powers native and web applications around the globe, using a variety of development frameworks.

Why implement facial recognition?

Face recognition has grown to become the leading method for biometric identification. It can accurately match IDs to photos and videos to give you confidence that your customers are who they say they are.

Create a face template

Our facial recognition tools create a 300-point template using advanced meshing technology that detects the pitch, roll, and yaw of the face. This is performed in a matter of seconds and turns faces into data that can be checked against.

Match individuals to the template

The template turns faces into data. Facial recognition can then match faces in photos and videos to the original template, giving you a high degree of confidence in whether or not an individual matches an ID. In ideal conditions our API performs with 90% accuracy.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does the facial recognition API cost?

Pricing is based on the number of templates you plan to create (ie. faces you plan to scan and check against) as well as several other factors. Give us a call at (504) 434-0222 and we’d be happy to discuss your use case and provide a custom price.

Do you offer support for implementation of this API?

We have robust documentation, but we won’t lie: this is an API that requires tech-resources to implement successfully. We do have tiered pricing for professional services to support you in your implementation efforts. We can provide these tiers of hours to you on a demo call.

How accurate is the API?

In ideal conditions the API achieves 97% or greater accuracy. Identifying individuals who are in motion is more challenging but still offer a high degree of accuracy.

What type of API is the IDScan.net Facial Recognition API?

It is a RESTful API.

What are the images requirements for this API?

Images should ideally be no more than 1500px wide, with a resolution no less than 96dpi (150dpi is recommended). JPEG compression should be no less than 15%.

Facial Recognition SDKs

Would you rather embed facial recognition inside your application? Download our easy-to-use SDKs which work offline and can be used inside native applications.

Want to perform facial recognition using a mobile device?

Our mobile ID validation product offers low-code and no-code ways to verify identity via SMS using a selfie.
