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.
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
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.
The MultiBio panel not only includes face recognition, but it also provides palm recognition to enhance the biometric door access. Optional Door access control software and visitor management software are available to provide very powerful door access control solutions. It also provides a touchscreen for easy configuration.
Best Application for the MultiBio
The MultiBio is the best when you would like to integrate with other biometric door access control readers, or require integration with a visitor management system. It is also the best choice when multiple doors share the same face credentials.
