At 2M Technology, we carry a line of special terminals that can control access to certain areas and rooms based on a variety of criteria. Our terminals are capable of multiple functions such as face recognition, body temperature scanning, and mask detection. Although already useful, an even more convenient option has been introduced. Now, you can get the same functions but in a smaller form with our mini face recognition terminals.
Access Controls for COVID-19 Safety
But why are more people and businesses deciding to use access control terminals? The use of these devices have become more common since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic because they help to minimize the spread of infection. Not only can these terminals be operated without contact, but they also keep out people who may be carrying the virus. These devices instantly read body temperature to screen out individuals who may be infected. In addition, they will deny access to those who aren’t using a face mask to enforce social distancing protocols.
Less Is More
Our mini face recognition terminals prove that bigger is not always better. These devices are equipped with the same functions of our regular sized model, but with some improvements. The biggest benefit of these new face recognition terminals is the mini size. Their size allows them to be placed anywhere, like on top of desks or other furniture. With our previous model, it had to be mounted onto a wall or be used with a specially designed stand.
The smaller size means that the device can be easily transported between locations. Let’s say that you installed the regular-sized terminals around your office. If you decide to move to a new office building, you would have to uninstall every terminal and pack up bulky equipment, which can be a hassle. Furthermore, when you get to the new building, you would have to re-mount all of the devices. This whole process can take time which discourages people from using them, despite all of the benefits. The mini face recognition terminals don’t require any mounting or a stand so they can be easily installed and moved.
The smaller size also means that you can use it anywhere to provide more safety. Even if you don’t need the terminal for the face recognition access controls, the other functions can be used to enforce safety protocols. For example, the mini terminal can be placed on top of reception desks at small businesses to ensure that the customers who come in are not experiencing a fever and are wearing a mask. This is a better method of checking temperature than having an employee manually scan everyone with a handheld thermal scanner.
Like our regular-sized terminals, our mini face recognition terminals come in two different models. One model detects temperature through forehead scanning while the other one comes with a temperature sensor. But which one is better? It really depends on where you’ll be using it. If you will be using the device outside, you should opt for the wrist scanner because the temperature reading will be more accurate and reliable. If you want the terminal for indoor use, the forehead scanner would be a convenient choice.
