Centaman Entrance Control, a facial recognition specialist company has entered Australia and New Zealand. Centaman offers its new facial recognition technology as an add-on for its access gates which are used in government buildings, leisure centres and corporate offices across the ANZ region.

Centaman’s new EasyAccess facial recognition scanner screens user’s faces to recognize them before providing them fast and easy access through an access door.

Centaman and its facial recognition technology

Centaman’s EasyAccess can be set up to scan the visitor’s temperature in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus and other respiratory diseases. It is also programmed to figure out whether or not the visitor is wearing a mask and prevent entry to those who aren’t, if need be.

EasyAccess readers can store about 50,000 faces in its internal database. The technology can scan people from 3 meters away and also includes anti-spoof detectors that empower it to distinguish between actual and live people from photos and videos.

One Of the many benefits of EasyAccess reader is that it can work with almost any gate and can be fitted to most of the existing Centaman Entrance Control gates. It also provides an option to be linked with multiple readers and to enable staff to manage a secure database of member and visitor faces from one central location.

More on the new facial recognition technology by Centaman

General Manager of Centaman Entrance Control, Michael Bystram says its facial recognition technology is already in use in Australasian offices, however, the price point and functionality was prohibitive at times. Bystram says the new EasyAccess reader is truly an effective facial recognition system available at any accessible price point. 

He further adds that it’s an ideal way for facility managers to offer secure and contactless entry in these testing times of the pandemic and removes the need for authorized visitors to carry an access card at all times with them.

Centaman Entrance Control is a security and entrance control technology specialist. Other contactless solutions made by Centaman include the EasyGate SG 1000, a gate that comes with a built-in thermal camera which can be used to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infected visitors entering retail stores and the IDEMIA MorphoWave biometric scanner, that can identify individuals using a 3D fingerprint scan.
