Face recognition is amongst the latest biometric technologies used for Time Attendance and Access Control solutions. This technology requires the users to only show their face into the machine (camera) from a specific distance (1:N method), practically removing any human contact with the device. This non-contact process eliminates the risk of tempering or machinery alteration.
Users may also use the machines on 1:1 method, where they may show card OR punch user ID & then show face, which improves their transaction authentication.
Face Recognition devices extract characteristic features from a human face and record it in form of mathematical template. To recognize the face, the machine normalizes the facial image to line-up eyes and mouth and then match it with the mathematical data stored in the database.
Face Recognition typically takes about 01 second to provide verification for a face during attendance / access transaction
These machines can be used standalone for Time Attendance & when used with flap barriers, turnstiles, etc. these machines can provide a total security solution for the organization.
