Secure hands-free access

August 2019 Access Control & Identity Management, Residential Estate (Industry)

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 recently launched FaceLite.

Both of these combine the latest optical technology with Suprema’s facial recognition algorithm that accurately distinguishes the faces of users and which makes use of live face detection to perfectly 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. Suprema’s facial recognition technology controls near-infrared LEDs according to the surrounding brightness, making 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 smart cards can now be loaded to any new-generation mobile phone supporting NFC or BLE, totally eliminating cards where multi-factor authentication is required. Although the latest RFID standards are also supported through multi-band RF reading technology.
