Secure touchless access

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Products, Access Control & Identity Management

Suprema’s facial biometric terminals bring no-touch access into secure residential estates, high-rise apartments and luxury homes, providing fast, easy and intuitive user authentication with the added benefit of hygiene.

Suprema offers two facial recognition devices, namely the FaceStation 2 and FaceLite.

Combining the latest optical technology with Suprema’s facial recognition algorithm, these touchless terminals accurately distinguish the faces of users with the added benefit of live face detection to block spoofing using photographs or 3D printed masks.

By detecting changes in the surrounding environment, accurate

hands-free access control for indoor installations at locations near windows, lobbies and building entrances as well as covered outdoor areas is possible. By controlling a near-infrared LED, according to the surrounding brightness, Suprema’s facial recognition technology makes it possible to authenticate users even in an environment with 25 000 lux, which is equivalent to full

daylight (not direct sunlight) with equal performance in total darkness.

Both offer a massive memory capacity and can accommodate up to 30 000 (3000 1:M) users, 50 000 face image logs (FaceStation 2 only) and 5 000 000 text logs, making it ideal for any site, large or small.

FaceStation 2 can work as a video intercom, eliminating the need to install a separate intercom system, giving residents control over their visitors.

Suprema’s face recognition solutions support mobile credentials, using NFC or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). This means that smartcards can now be loaded to any new-generation mobile phone supporting NFC or BLE, eliminating cards where multi-factor authentication is required. The latest RFID standards are also supported through multi-band RF reading technology.
