Surveillance security systems and smart DVRs have come a long way in the past decade with the invention of features such as motion detection, scheduled recording, and live video streaming over the web. The latest development, however, not only surpasses these features in usefulness, but downright puts their technological breakthroughs to shame.

This new concept is similar to an internet search engine, except instead of searching websites, the new feature allows users to search through huge amounts of video, finding results based on soft biometrics such as estimated height, skin and hair color, clothes, and any other feature that make a person stand out from others...

Great news for fans of 'fuzzy math'. "I'm sorry sir, but you match the biometric profile exactly: 6' tall, white, with a beard. You're coming with me."
