Ezitracker Introduce Touchless Access

01 September 2021 | Updated 02 September 2021
 

As FMs look to bring office spaces up to modern day standards, post-pandemic occupants are turning to access controls that require less touch points. After precautionary COVID measures become less expected, they are likely to be replaced by a culture that is more aware of the ways technology can alleviate unnecessary bacteria contact.

For this reason Ezitracker have updated their Biometric workforce management solution for clocking in and clocking out of the workplace. The solution runs on a tablet permanently mounted on the wall or desk at the point of entry. When it sees a face, it compares it with known faces using facial recognition technology. If there is a match, it displays the matching name and profile picture.

The technology is powered by NoahFace – an Australian app software provider and Ezitracker is the first in the UK to adopt their solution.

The system can operate either completely stand-alone or integrate with an existing workforce management or event management system. Either way, an attendance summary report can be viewed or exported at any time from a Web browser.

 

Temperature Checking

 

The app also has a temperature screening capability by utilising a completely unmanned and touchless kiosk, designed for self-service. It includes an embedded iPad and state of the art nano-optical sensor.

The temperature screening solution can be integrated with their Time and Attendance solutions, screening staff before they start work, screening staff before they enter secure work spaces and as a stand-alone, to test staff, visitor, or customer temperatures.

The technology is highly configurable, and the home screen can be customised with warning messages, graphical on screen feedback, email alerts, and integrated hardware like warning lights.

When used for employee-focused applications, it uses facial recognition technology to instantly recognise individuals. It automatically tracks individualised "normal" temperature ranges, making it far more accurate than solutions using a fixed temperature threshold.

In all cases, the captured events are stored securely in the Cloud, where they can be searched, viewed, and exported by authorised users.
