According to the company, this system can be used for access control, but coupled with Argus’ True Identity suite, can also be used for a range of other processes. 3D face recognition is achieved with this device through the use of two internal cameras. On-board software supports enrolment, verification and identification processes.
The company’s True Identity suite is deigned to manage access control, asset tracking, time capture, visitor management, RFID tagging and secure credentials.
In August, Argus launched its ‘Smart Kiosk,’ a self-contained unit which can be integrated with an iris camera, fingerprint sensor, face or voice biometrics or any combination of these modalities.
