HikVision releases face biometric terminal with mask alerts for access control

Prama HikVision has introduced the DS-K1T642 series MinMoe facial recognition terminal product range to be used for crowd control, which features biometric mask detection and signals when a person is not wearing a face mask.

In a recent news release, the India-based division of Chinese video security solutions provider HikVision said the contactless access control device is built with a deep learning algorithm that enables it to recognize a face with greater speed and biometric accuracy.

With its multi-modal authentication supporting facial recognition, access cards and fingerprint biometrics, the device can be deployed in a wide range of environments including public buildings, enterprises, financial institutions and other public arena, the statement adds.

According to HikVision, the two face mask alert systems of the device are important as they will help organizations manage staff and users in these times of the pandemic when the wearing of face masks in mandatory in many public places.

The first alert is the ‘face mask wearing alert’ which reminds a person that they are not wearing a face mask but goes ahead to validate their identity; but with the ‘forced mask wearing alert,’ the authentication process fails when the face being recognized is not wearing a mask.

More features of the device include facial recognition from 0.3 to 3 meters, biometric accuracy above 99 percent, and matching in less than 0.2 seconds, according to the release. The DS-K1T642 MinMoe supports various connections to external devices like card readers, as well as multiple languages including some Hindi and Indian regional languages.
