Facentry - Fast and Efficient Access Control
Facentry is our face recognition door lock and access solution which automatically unlocks a door with your face. It has a number of uses including access to offices, shared workspaces, apartments and hotel bedroom door, spa, gym or function rooms.
Guest faces are enrolled on to the PMS system and then sent to the allocated room and given a start and finish time for how many days they are staying. Bookings can be made online and the guest face uploaded. The guest receives a text to say which room they are in and then arrives at the hotel. They can either use a kiosk or bypass the reception as the system will know automatically of their arrival and give them access to their room by using their face.
The guest approaches the door presses a button, a LED light notifies them a match has occurred and the door opens. On entry the system triggers the lighting which can be remotely switched off by reception once the guest has checked out. The system also has an anti-vandal switch notifying reception if someone tries to tamper with the system.
If for some reason the guest is unhappy about using their face, a QR code can be sent to their mobile phone and read by the same cameras as used for the face. For more secure sites the QR code and the face can both be activated together as a two factor authentication method.
The door lock has 5 hours of battery back-up if the power is cut therefore still allowing the guest to continue to enter the room. The same enrolled face image / QR code can be given access to other areas such as the Spa and Gym and the cleaning team can be given access to a room at a certain time depending on their shift pattern.
Further development is being carried out to create an affordable face recognition door lock option for the home.
Bookings can be made online and the guest face uploaded. The guest receives a text to say which room they are in and then arrives at the hotel.

Saves the need for 24/7 reception staff.
Modern apartment blocks can now have Face Recognition built in to open the entrance doors. Faces of the residents and those that need to gain access can be downloaded to the door station and removed when not needed. A far more efficient way of managing remote access.
The system is also useful for holiday lets or Airbnb where guest’s faces can be downloaded to the system ready for any new arrivals without the need for the host to be there.
Office security passes that staff forget and go out of date can be a thing of the past as your face can give you access to your office. Linked to the facilities management system it will only allow staff in the areas / floors that they have be granted access to.
Staff could would also be enrolled on the system and any intruders highlighted to security.
