Comparison of Face Recognition, and Temperature Access Control Panels

Biometric and Body Temperature Access Control

These door access reader-controllers not only provide face recognition credential authentication, but they can also check a person’s temperature and check if they are wearing a mask.

Face Recognition and Temperature Systems
Face Recognition and Temperature Systems

There are several temperature screening devices available including handheld thermometers, thermal scanning cameras that measure many people at a time, and entry panels that check each person at the door. The individual door panels are the most popular.

Designed for today’s demands to improve safety in our organizations, these touchless temperature screening devices help maintain a safe environment in schools, hospitals, corporations, and government facilities. The following comparison guide will help you determine the right panel for your application.  

Temperature and Mask Access Control Buyers Guide


Face Recognition and Temperature Reader

This is a network-attached biometric door reader that provides face authentication and temperature monitoring. It can prevent the entry of a person that has an elevated temperature or if they are not wearing a protective face mask.

Best Application for the FaceBio

It is best used in standalone applications that monitor people’s temperature or wearing a mask. The panel can be wired to an electric lock or integrated with an existing access control system.

This advanced model includes a touchscreen that makes it very easy to install. The network-attached panel can be configured from the touchscreen or the web browser interface. It can be integrated with other door access systems using the Wiegand interface. It also measures a person’s temperature even when they are wearing a mask. The mobile app provides immediate notification of alarm conditions.  

Best Application for the FaceBioPro

This panel is best used when you need one that can connect to an access control system. It also can be used as a standalone entry control system that can measure a person’s temperature even when they are wearing a mask.
