The concept of electronic access control has been used for years. Many businesses and workplaces use some form of access control such as keycards or fingerprint scanners. However, at 2M, we offer a better and safer way of controlling access using a terminal integrated with face recognition. Using face recognition access control in your business or workplace is a more secure and convenient option.
Benefits of Face Recognition Access Control:
Eliminates Physical Keys
A common issue with using physical keys or keycards is that employees are prone to losing them or forgetting them at home. Since these terminals grant or deny access based on the face, no other physical object will need to be presented. Face recognition is also more secure and cost efficient. For example, with traditional keys, employees can make copies of the key and give an unauthorized person access. In addition, former employees may forget to return their keys, requiring the business to spend money and time on changing all of the locks. With these terminals, owners can just go into the system and deny that person access without having to change out any hardware.
Face recognition access control not only protects the business, but it also protects the employees. Having access controls ensures that only authorized people are allowed inside the building. This prevents any dangerous intruders from entering and potentially threatening the safety of employees.
Restricts Access to Sensitive Areas
In businesses and workplaces, not everyone should have access to certain areas. However, it can get confusing to have different keys to open different doors. In addition, having physical keys is not the most secure solution because they can fall into the wrong hands. Instead of using keys for entry, businesses can use face recognition access control. Since face recognition will only grant access to that authorized person, it’s more secure. In addition, these terminals can be configured to grant different people different levels of access.
These terminals are a more convenient option for business owners because they can control access from anywhere they are and know that their locations are secure without them being physically there. One problem of using keycard access or traditional keys is that they must be configured on-site. For a business owner with multiple locations, this can be a hassle. These terminals are configured through a software which can be done remotely and quickly. For example, if an employee were to lose their key, the security of the business would be put at risk until the locks are changed. These terminals don’t require keys but can be integrated with keycards. If a keycard is lost, that person’s credentials can just be turned off.
Another benefit of using face recognition control access is that you can keep track of who is coming in and when. Every time these terminals are used, a record of who and when will be put into the database. This can help employers to keep track of employee attendance and if they’re coming in on time. It also ensures that employees are not coming into the workplace outside of work hours for non-work related things. In addition, the terminals can be installed in inventory or stockrooms so owners know who accessed the room if something goes missing.
Using face recognition access control terminals is a more secure and convenient option for businesses and workplaces. Besides offering more protection and security, they can be managed remotely and efficiently. Not sure if this is the right solution for you?
