Facial recognition used to be a futuristic idea. Today, however, we use face ID to access our smartphones and other smart devices every day. It’s a secure and convenient form of access to our information.
Now, face recognition is creating the same secure and convenient access to our physical spaces.
Facial Recognition Access Control
To understand facial recognition as it is used for access control purposes, it’s important to first understand how facial recognition works. Understanding operability, benefits, and even privacy concerns will prepare users to make the best decisions when integrating this type of access security to a building.
Along with other benefits, face recognition can now be used to provide access to buildings in a safe, touchless manner. Instead of a key card, systems provide a camera based-reader, that authorizes entry using the person’s face. All you have to do it walk up and look at the reader, it runs recognition, identifies the person and sends a signal to unlock the doors.
COVID-19 and Face Recognition
With COVID-19, facial recognition used for access control has now become mainstream due to various reasons:
Ability to perform a touchless access
The need for setting up touchless systems in offices
Large scale familiarity and use of face ID by Apple for mobile unlock
Arrival of privacy focussed companies that provide a secure, privacy oriented platform for using face recognition
Improvements to facial recognition accuracy, which is now on par with a person’s ability to identity someone
Benefits of Face Recognition Access Control
While touchless access using face recognition offers clear benefits throughout COVID-19, it’s future-proof benefits are also worth mentioning:
Touchless access to doors
No need to remember to grab a key card
High security for the building, since you are verifying the person directly
Seamless; eliminates fumbling with a key at the access point
Self-enrollment for users
Face Recognition Access: Hardware and Equipment
Face recognition access control requires a specialized reader for running face recognition. However, most systems utilize the pre-existing hardware inside a building. Most facial recognition access reader hardware works with existing electronic door lock, current wiring, and motion sensors etc. This means you can upgrade to touchless access systems by reusing most of the infrastructure already in place.
Facial Recognition Door Openers
Facial recognition access systems can be combined with automatic door openers. With this combination, a person can walk up to a door, look at the reader, and the door would prop open automatically.
Facial Recognition Door Lock
Facial recognition credentials grant access and unlock doors, without having to carry keys, key cards, or other forms of credentials. This is a major benefit to the end user, but it is also especially beneficial to multifamily buildings and offices by reducing their burden of managing key cards and fobs.
Types of Biometric Access
Face recognition is just one form of biometric door access control method. There are a few other types of biometric access control methods:
Iris Recognition Access
Fingerprint Access Control
Palm Print Access Control
Iris recognition is another touchless form of biometric access control.
Finding the best facial recognition access control system involves the following considerations:
Number of doors
Multiple site support or compatibility
Price per reader, and how that aligns with business goals
Accuracy and security against photo based attempts to access
JAEMONT Face Recognition Access Control
JAEMONT’s Face Recognition Access Control system is a completely touchless experience that allows users to simply walk up to a door, look at the JAEMONT device, and the door unlocks. It’s simple, intuitive, and secure. Check out the video below to see the JAEMONT face recognition access control experience.
JAEMONT install with a single Power Over Ethernet wire, which ensures quick, cost effective, and fast installation. This uses existing ethernet based cabling inside the building, reducing cabling costs.
JAEMONT install at a camera height of around 5 feet, and have a long vertical field of view that provides great coverage for people of various heights.
For people with disabilities, JAEMONT come built in with mobile access control, so anyone in a wheelchair can simply use the JAEMONT mobile app to unlock doors.
Facial recognition access control systems prices vary quite a lot, from $200 per door to $1,000 per door. JAEMONT system falls on the lowest end of the price point, starting around $300 per door.
