New biometric access control solution by Dahua and distribution partnerships for Invixium and StoneLock
Security solutions provider Dahua Technology has released a new facial recognition access control terminal solution.
Named FACT, the new biometric system has been designed for installation in commercial buildings, hospitals, schools, and more generally, any location where people need to enter premises on a regular basis.
According to Dahua, the new system’s facial recognition algorithms would be able to identify a person in less than 0.3 seconds and with a 99.5 percent accuracy, even in non-ideal light conditions.
FACT is also tested according to the TÜV Rheinland ETSI TS 103645 standard and is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The company says FACT is easily installed, with support for standalone operation, and easily configured through its touchscreen menu.
LenelS2 partners with Invixium on biometrics for “healthy buildings”
Security solutions firm LenelS2 has announced a new global distribution agreement with biometric scanner manufacturer Invixium on Thursday.
As part of the new partnership, LenelS2 will now resell Invixium’s contactless biometric solutions through its OnGuard and NetBox value-added reseller (VAR) channels.
The collaboration will also see Invixium provide a new interface for the OnGuard and NetBox systems, as well as offering its face recognition IXM TITAN solution with a new Enhancement Kit.
“The collaboration with Invixium provides our users with a versatile access control and proactive screening solution that can help them navigate today’s complex safety and security requirements,” said LenelS2 President, Jeff Stanek, commenting on the news.
The Enhancement Kit augments IXM TITAN with an AI-powered dual-camera biometric solution capable of contactless facial recognition authentication and featuring mask and body temperature detection.
“The advanced biometrics and built-in mask detection add new functionality to our Healthy Buildings portfolio,” Stanek explained.
The solution also features an API interface that is compatible with the NetBox access control system as well as compatibility with the OnGuard security management system via the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP).
Johnson Controls integrates StoneLock with security software
StoneLock GO “faceless” face biometrics captured with near-infrared imaging have been integrated with Tyco Kantech EntraPass security management software by Tyco parent Johnson Controls to provide contactless access control.
The combined solution is easy to deploy and provides biometric performance including anti-spoofing and a best-in-class False Acceptance Rate with all people regardless of gender, race or age, according to the announcement. The proprietary templates created and stored by StoneLock (rather than facial images) cannot be recognized outside of the company’s system.
The integration brings biometric rejection and other events to EntraPass’ native capabilities to improve situational awareness and provide a complete picture of what happens at the door, the companies say.
