Now, facial recognition is creating equally secure and convenient access to our physical space.
Facial recognition access control has quickly become an emerging technology for physical access due to the shift to health-focused solutions that also offer incredible security

Facial Recognition Access Control

Only by understanding the working principle of facial recognition access control systems can we gain a deeper understanding of the purpose and meaning of its use for access control . Understanding the operability, benefits and even privacy concerns will prepare users to make the best decisions when integrating this type of access security into a building.
Among other benefits, facial recognition can now be used to gain access to buildings in a secure, non-contact manner. Instead of a key card, the system provides a camera-based reader that can use a face to authorize entry. All you have to do is walk up and look at the reader, which runs recognition, identifies the person and sends a signal to unlock the door.

COVID-19 and Face Recognition

For COVID-19, facial recognition for access control has now become mainstream for a variety of reasons.
  • Ability to perform contactless access
  • The need for a contactless system in the office
  • Apple's large-scale familiarity and use of facial ID for mobile unlocking
  • The arrival of privacy-focused companies that provide secure, privacy-oriented platforms for using facial recognition
  • Improvements in facial recognition accuracy, now comparable to a person's ability to identify someone

Benefits of Facial Recognition Access Control

While contactless access using facial recognition provides obvious benefits throughout COVID-19, its future-oriented benefits are also worth mentioning.
  • Contactless access control
  • No need to remember to take your key card
  • High security of the building as you are verifying the person directly
  • Seamless; eliminates the hassle of using keys at access points
  • Self-registration by the user
  • Facial recognition access: hardware and equipment
Facial recognition access control requires specialized readers to run face recognition. However, most systems utilize pre-existing hardware within the building. Most facial recognition access reader hardware works with existing electronic door locks, current wiring, and motion sensors. This means that you can upgrade to a contactless access control system by reusing much of your existing infrastructure.

Facial recognition door openers

Facial recognition access control systems can be used in combination with automatic door openers. With this combination, a person can walk up to a door, look at the reader, and the door will automatically open.

Facial recognition door locks

Facial recognition credentials grant access to unlocked doors without the need to carry keys, key cards or other forms of credentials. This is a major benefit for end users, but it is also particularly beneficial for multi-family buildings and offices, as they can reduce the burden of managing key cards and keys.

Types of biometric access

Facial recognition is just one form of biometric access control method. There are a number of other types of biometric access control methods.
  • Iris recognition access
  • Fingerprint access control
  • Palm print access control
  • Iris recognition is another form of contactless biometric access control.
However, it has not been widely adopted for a variety of reasons.

Iris recognition requires a person to align their eyes exactly, very close to the reader
Fingerprint biometric access control has taken a hit due to COVID-19 because people are concerned about touching surfaces that are commonly or frequently used.
Purchase Considerations
If you want to find the best facial recognition access control system for you, here are a few ways
  • Number of doors
  • Multi-site support or compatibility
  • Price per reader and how it aligns with business goals
  • Enrollment process
  • Accuracy and security against photo-based access attempts
  • Reliability
  • Data privacy

What are the advantages of access control facial recognition??

UK Health Code Facial Recognition Door Access Control

One of the fastest growing trends in hands-free user authentication architectural design and technology is the application of touch-free user experiences. The rapid expansion of multi-tenant living and work spaces and the coronavirus pandemic have led to an increasing demand for touchless living and working environments.
Increased security The latest generation of facial recognition devices provide accurate and highly secure authentication compared to traditional access methods such as PIN codes or key fob access control.
Quick, easy and remote management of user IDs is simple for system administrators to add, delete and control user accounts, and can be managed completely remotely. While authentication via physical devices requires the physical distribution or delivery (and return) of key fobs or cards, system administrators (such as security, human resources or concierge staff) can use the cloud to create and disable new user IDs from any remote site based on the management platform, dramatically speeding up the process to save time and money.
No authentication device required Many access control and access identification methods require authentication using a physical device - such as a key fob, RFID card or smartphone. If a user forgets or loses their "device" (or worse - gets it stolen), then they will not be able to enter the building. Of course, the facial recognition "device" will always be with you!
Integration with other platforms Facial recognition access control systems can also be integrated with other logistic and system platforms, such as time and attendance, automatic payment systems or building management systems, helping to develop intelligent building rings
Contactless access control
Facial recognition is one of the many contactless authentication methods used in access control and door intercom systems, and is part of the latest generation of non-contact path parameters for building design.
The coronavirus pandemic has led to a significant increase in the demand and adoption of contactless technologies and products in workplaces and multi-tenant environments to reduce the frequency of contact between individuals, thus helping to reduce the risk of virus transmission.
As a result, authentication methods that allow users to identify themselves without touching the device (technologies such as RFID, NFC, Bluetooth, and now, of course, facial recognition) are becoming the preferred choice for access control intercoms and access control systems.

Is facial recognition suitable for masks?

The accuracy and security of face recognition access control systems is highly dependent on the number of facial features that can be recognized/measured by the system. Therefore, systems that require users to briefly remove their masks during authentication are recommended to provide a more secure option.
Since masks are now mandatory in many buildings, many systems are being developed to include "mask detection". Instead of changing the algorithm to measure fewer facial features (less secure), mask detection would tell the user that their identity cannot be detected; 'Please remove the mask for authentication'.

However, many manufacturers are currently developing their technologies and algorithms to improve accuracy for mask-wearing users.

How does facial recognition work in access control?

Like all new disruptive technologies, facial recognition is improving the way things have traditionally worked.
Access control is currently based on the use of cards, keypads with passwords, fingerprints and even door attendants.
Today, you can also use facial recognition in access control to open doors, barriers or turnstiles to gain access to an area simply by showing your face.

Why use facial recognition in access control?

  • Faster process
The system is much faster than a card reader or a device with a password or fingerprint code. That's why this technology is now being used at airport gates, because airport and airline managers know the value of saving time.
  • Improved user experience
The user doesn't need to remember the pin or carry anything with him, just his face.
  • Reduced access fraud
Cards can be lost, and passwords can be copied. However, it is far more secure to use the face as a means of identifying people.
Given that security is an important aspect of many buildings, one should issue special warnings to vendors who claim to perform the function of identifying people, but who, in reality, do not use technology that guarantees performance or compliance.

How Does Facial Recognition Work in Access Control?

A user passes near an IP camera, which sends a live video stream to a server PC with face recognition software LFIS installed. The software then compares the live image with images from a list of authorized people and 

Do I need a separate or new gate or access door gate to use facial recognition access control with?

The RA08T can be easily integrated by command or contact closure if existing systems in the building offer integration options, so existing barriers, doors or turnstiles can be used.
What camera do I need?
The software accepts any OMVIF IP camera, even USB cameras. It just needs you to capture good facial pose, focus and clarity for easy identification of people.

What are other applications of facial recognition for access control?

It can also be used to identify people in groups (workers, cleaning staff, temporary authorized personnel, guests, etc.), as well as to identify VIP customers and even potential threats who want to enter the building.

Is facial recognition access control a good option?

Access control systems can offer a variety of credentialing options, but biometrics have really taken off in the last few years. While fingerprint scanners have been popular for some time, facial recognition is becoming a possibility for access control; it's no longer just for cell phones, and facial recognition has now grown to a nearly $7 billion market.
But is facial recognition a good option for protecting buildings through access control systems? Is it secure? Does it have any drawbacks? Read on to find out.

How facial recognition access control works

Facial recognition uses a 2d or 3d scanner (or camera) to scan your image, then uses advanced algorithms to map and detect the features that make your face unique. By recognizing all the different features of your face - such as the distance between your eyes and forehead, the distance between your eyes, forehead and chin, and the width of your eyebrows and lips, among others.
The recognition system then converts them into hundreds of data points that represent the unique geometry of your face. For practical purposes, this can be called a "facial imprint". This data can be presented either as an image or as a data number that can be quickly sorted and compared to other facial data sets.This works essentially the same way as iris and fingerprint scanners, but is uniquely programmed to work with facial recognition. To compensate for unusual camera angles or poor image quality, facial recognition algorithms can actually detect these angles and make the necessary adjustments to the facial fingerprint. How is facial recognition used? What are the benefits?
Facial recognition is used for a variety of security purposes. Right now the most basic is to unlock your smartphone, but it is also used in many situations where analysis might be useful, such as retail or airport checkpoints.
Perhaps the most effective application, however, is access control. Fingerprint scanners have become a popular and reliable choice for biometric credentials, providing tighter and more convenient security, but facial recognition is now an option for many facilities.
Why? Because facial recognition is so easy; all an employee or authorized person must do is stand in front of the scanner and the system will do all the work - recognizing their unique facial fingerprint and unlocking the assigned door, often in milliseconds. This eliminates many of the hassles of an already very easy-to-use door control system; it's almost as if there isn't even some sort of security system in place, while being just as secure. They rival fingerprint scanners in terms of reliability and ease of use - not to mention being easier when wearing gloves.
Are facial recognition access controls harder to crack and smarter than fingerprint scanners? Not necessarily - but it's no less secure. Determined hackers will always come up with ways to outmaneuver the system if they really want to, but facial recognition offers one of the best, all-around, secure options for biometric access control systems.

What are the problems with facial recognition access control systems when using them?

The biggest concern most people have with facial recognition access control is privacy; they don't want to have their facial image stored somewhere. That's why it's important that companies that use facial recognition only use it to store personal data of employees who have access to secure facilities. It should also only be used where quick, streamlined security is needed without sacrificing security.
Will facial recognition replace fingerprint scanners anytime soon?
Probably not soon, but if the artificial intelligence deployed in these systems continues to grow and improve, it may someday. At this point, facial scanners for access control are less popular than fingerprint scanners - but that could change over time.
