Kampr Systems Introduces Badgeless 3D Facial Recognition Reader
The K9i addresses the need for a more secure door entrance technology, which directly interfaces with existing access control platforms.
SAN JOSE — Within the physical security space, security directors, systems integrators, consultants, architects and engineers are under a constant barrage of requests to meet specific needs in response to designing their security systems to supplement a healthy buildings initiative while maintaining a stringent standard for safety and security.
Some of the buzz words are touchless, mobile credentials, long-range readers and automatic opening doors, all to reduce a physical interaction with the door and associated devices to reduce the spread of pathogens. The bottom line is corporations want their people to occupy the workspaces they have created for them and bring employees back to work safely.
Several manufacturers have stepped up with a multitude of offerings, but many lack the key security measures that assure protection from unauthorized individuals.
A solution from Kampr Systems, based here, addresses the needs for a safer and more secure door entrance technology which will directly interface with an end user’s currently installed access control platform. The Kampr Systems K9i takes the place of a standard wall-mounted card reader and uses 3D facial recognition technology to determine if an individual has authorization to enter the portal.
The only interaction required with the K9i is to face the door directly as you approach; the solution recognizes a user’s digital image within 4’-6’ of the door and if you have an authorized profile, access is granted immediately. Should an unauthorized individual approach the K9i, the digital image is saved in the database and access will be denied a record is kept of this “unknown user” for future reference or investigation.
In addition to rapidly processing the digital images of authorized profiles, the K9i will recognize up to three authorized individuals while on approach to the door, and all will be logged into the access control system with access granted. If an unauthorized individual enters the field of view of the K9i along with those that are authorized, access will be denied, and that event will be logged as a tailgating incident prevented. Once the K9i sees authorized individuals then access will be granted.
A Higher Security Option
When the K9i base unit is coupled with the K9v Verifier Unit, confirmation that the individual that was granted access is indeed the one who entered the space, is achieved by mounting the K9v on the in view of the unsecured side of the door. System wide alerts can be programmed to provide the appropriate responses to these events based upon the security protocol of the organization.
The K9i family of products seamlessly integrates with most access control manufacturers in the form of OSDP, Weigand or RIO communications. The K9i generates a specific user number matched with the encrypted digital image to be entered like a card number in the card holder profile. No photos and associated names are captured by the K9i products.
The K9i, which will be officially launching at GSX 2021 in Orlando, is currently certified by Genetec to integrate with Synergis.
