A front runner of biometric research and development, a company Suprema has had a breakthrough in technology that I find to be very beneficial: The Facestation!
The Suprema Facestation is a facial recognition door access control device that was created to give access to those enrolled after having their face detected on the machine. Very Sci-Fi! As mentioned in the article, Suprema face recognition with adaptive IR, this “provides contactless, hands-free biometric authentication which allows more convenience and hygiene than many other methods of access control security. “
Value can be found in using fingerprint and card access for private areas of buildings, just general employee entrance and even payroll time & attendance. The mess of keys are gone as well as having a paper mess with a time clock. Doors are more secure with networked access control unit and a mag lock instead of a single latch. Obviously a face detection unit is a step beyond the fingerprint and card access. Today’s technology market is reaching for bigger and better things and I believe this unit will be a big hit especially in government facilities and areas that need highly protective door control.
Using new technologies to and sleek designs the unit comes at a shockingly low price compared to a high priced $50,000 a company would have spent a couple years ago on a product that could provide facial detection.
I give this new product a thumbs up!
