BioSec adds body temperature detection to vein biometric access control system
BioSec has upgraded its BS GateKeeper biometric physical access control system with a third party body temperature detection tool.
The company’s decision aims to support efforts to contain the coronavirus by reducing contact at access points. By combining palm vein recognition-based access control and authentication with individual body temperature scanning, only individuals with no fever are allowed access to a facility. Detection is performed with two devices and an AI algorithm. Access point temperature is measured with an accuracy of plus or minus 0.3 degrees Celsius.
“This is a really challenging time for everyone, which we are trying to make easier with our own tools as much as we can. Besides securing people’s environment we would like to also protect their health and do our best to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. That’s why we integrated a fever detection system into our BS GateKeeper access control solution, so we can help to recognise potentially infected people before they contact more people,” said BioSec Group CEO Péter Györgydeák, in a prepared statement.
BioSec’s “Triple” product line delivers contactless access control and gives the client the freedom to choose between contactless, finger rest only and full hand rest. The upgraded biometric system eliminates the need for human interaction and will automatically send a notification to staff about feverish individuals who will not be allowed entry in the building.
Earlier this year, BioSec partnered with Assa Abloy subsidiary Seawing to develop integrated biometric solutions for access control, by combining the latter’s RFID access control system with BioSec’s palm vein recognition system.
