Earlier this month, Vanderbilt introduced Facial Recognition Terminals into their access control portfolio. These products are touchless technology that enables skin temperature measurement and masked individual identification during facial and palm verification at access points. They interface with Vanderbilt’s ACTpro on-premise and ACT365 cloud-based access control solutions, and communicate with the systems via a Wiegand output.

  • From the company’s Product Management:

“These products have great technical strengths. They have a read range of 0.6 F / 0.3 C accuracy at 18 inches. The terminals have a straightforward, intuitive interface to set temperature thresholds and collaborate with the environment around it. Protocols can be set to prevent access if a mask isn’t being worn, or if the temperature of the visitor is above the threshold.”, says Paul McCarthy, Product Manager.

  • From the company’s Sales Team:

“The goal of adding these terminals to the Vanderbilt portfolio is to help tackle hygiene concerns. For instance, a hospital can check when a staff member has their mask fitted and is not above the normal skin temperature limit before granting them access. This feature makes it not only an ideal product for hospitals, but also factories, schools, commercial buildings, airports, stations, and other public areas.”, says Troy Sullivan, Country Sales Manager, Ireland.

Introduce mandatory requirements

Through this touchless technology, skin temperature acts as the credential, thus making this a crucial addition to the Vanderbilt portfolio during the current pandemic. Additionally, as countries begin to introduce mandatory requirements for citizens to wear masks, this touchless technology can detect if someone is or isn’t wearing one.
