UK Leading Facial Recognition Security System

Facewatch creates safer working environments, reduces lost revenue and is more affordable than you think.

Facewatch is one of the UK’s leading facial recognition companies. Facewatch’s cloud-based facial recognition security system safeguards businesses against crime. Our facial recognition technology sends you instant alerts when subjects of interest enter your business premises.

It is the ONLY shared national facial recognition watchlist. Simple, secure and affordable, we are the premier choice of retail security companies in the UK. Facewatch is proven to stop crime before it happens. It’s time for businesses to self-help, take a stand, and proactively tackle the issue of theft head on.

Real Time Alerts

Using facial recognition technology, Facewatch matches faces against known offenders within seconds of them entering your premises and sends an instant alert for verification and action.


With Facewatch’s facial recognition system, you will have full access to our complete database of persons of interest, in addition to your own watchlist images. The all-inclusive watchlist is then shared by geography with every Facewatch subscriber.

Report & Upload

We know what customers demand from biometric facial recognition companies. That’s why our digital incident reporting and intelligence sharing platform makes it as easy for you as possible to capture, report and upload information and digital images.


You have complete peace of mind regarding data protection, we use bank grade security and take on full data controller responsibility for the sharing of faces and associated warning flags
