Abstract: Face detection is an important process when it comes to computer vision. It will serve as an input to a Facial expression and Face recognition system. Modern “C.C.T.V” cameras with face detection features are costly and only few are connected to the internet. This paper proposes a Face detection system which detects faces with a fusion of Convolutional neural network and Gabor Filter. Gabor filter is used to extract important facial features and Convolutional neural network is used to train the model. Model weights files are executed in Raspberry PI which is cost efficient. Raspberry pi is connected to cloud service which will alert the user with SMS and E-mail.
