Illustra Insight

Intelligent movement of people in buildings places and spaces

The Illustra Insight combines the quality surveillance of a leading-edge facial recognition camera integrated with a comprehensive access control device. Engineered with deep learning algorithms and cyber security protocols the device is designed to create a frictionless, unobtrusive experience for all.

Camera Features

  • Enhanced Facial Detection
  • Alerts for Persons of Interest ®
  • Improved flow of users with unobtrusive, frictionless and secure access control
  • Anti-spoofing liveliness detection solution that eliminates the risk of spoofing via a photographic image
  • Personalised language greeting for unique user experience
  • Cyber security protection with no Ethernet at the door

Access Control Features

  • Designed for seamless integration with Johnson Controls access brands, CEM Systems, Software House and Kantech.
  • Access control agnostic. Illustra Insight can be interconnected via traditional and modern wiring protocols into any access system that has on-board Wiegand and OSDP
  • Eliminate the risk of card pass back

Flexibility and Deployment

Whilst Tyco/JCI offers a complete frictionless access solution, enabled by Tyco AI, we designed our solution with flexibility in mind. Our first release leverages facial recognition but we are exploring other biometric options for future release. We also welcome co-development efforts with partners who have custom AI needs. For example we are collaborating with Microsoft to deliver Illustra Insight with Azure AI.

Tyco AITyco AI, an ever-evolving, deep learning solution that is infusing Artificial Intelligence into the Tyco security technology portfolio.


Secure CommunicationsPropriety protocols are used to ensure secure communications between the Insight camera and control panel.


Twin CamerasIllustra Insight utilises two imagers to create a 3D facial topology that can quickly distinguish between an actual human and a picture of a human, greatly increasing accuracy while reducing false positives.



Intuitive visual & multilanguage audio feedbackIntegrated LEDs combined with “Welcome/Deny” audio and SIP intercom functionality ensure visitors and employees instantly know if they can enter an area while operators are able to provide instructions remotely. Audio messages can be configured in a number of languages for a personalised and improved user experience.
