Modern biometric control is now incredibly accurate, convenient, affordable and offers a great level of control.
- Fast, these terminals work in as little as 0.5 seconds
- No smart cards need to be handed out and collected
- Very secure, a face or thumb cannot be duplicated or shared with a colleague
- User friendly
No longer are plastic access cards a necessity, personnel, visitors and staff can all be managed using a variety of biometric entry methods.
COVID-19 contactless access
If you are concerned about contact with customers or personnel and also need to maintain the security of your facility, biometric information offers a great contactless alternative to traditional keypads and access cards in your business.
We have a range of contactless access systems that can be installed to minimise contact between your personnel.
- Facial recognition contactless entry terminals
- Intercom systems for remote communication
- General automation solutions for your business
These systems are fantastic for minimising transmission risk during a corona virus epidemic, but will also optimise your business, reduce waiting times and enhance security long after installation.
Biometric Access Options
There are a range of ways that biometric data can be used to authenticate personnel, but three have proved reliable, repeatable and are now becoming used increasingly widely in security.
- Facial recognition
- Finger reader
- Infrared palm scanning
Facial recognition is now widely used on many of our smartphones, and uses a variety of visual light and infrared cameras to guage shape and depth of a users face. Modern deep learning algorithms are then able to identify features and facial shapes from those images and can even match faces from a range of different angles.
These sytems are robust to hats, glasses and other acessories and can even match faces wearing surgical masks.
Fingerprint readers are also commonplace on smartphones and usually use a capacitive sensor to read the unique patterns found in our fingerprints. These are also very reliable and are incredibly fast, matching a fingerprint in just a fraction of a second. Fingerprint readers are often built in to a range of modern card readers and facial recognition terminals available today.
Infrared palm scanning
Humans also have very unique patterns of blood vessels running throughout their body. An infrared palm scanner can read the shape of these from inside your hand, and match them as they would with a fingerprint that has been enrolled in the system.
