The BIOS01 access control device provides an additional layer of security to the traditional card or biometric access control systems by measuring the body temperature of the person from the forehead area using a thermal camera and generates an alert on detection of elevated body temperature. The unit is typically deployed on entry ways to building facilities such as doors, turnstiles or entry gates where visitors and staff are directed to the unit to check in and take a temperature scan for elevated body temperature.
The device is managed by a remote management application which can be hosted on a PC on the network. The remote management application allows you to manage multiple devices from a central location including provisioning each device with specific user information for identification purpose. You can also register visitors to the facility.
Any access or temperature alerts from the devices are sent in real-time to the remote management application where they are displayed on the monitoring console for security staff to respond to the alerts and take appropriate action defined by the policies at their facility.
The device has a 8" high resolution non touch display that displays visual alerts to the user.
Body Temperature Scan
The unit has an accurate infrared thermal sensor (German Hiemann thermopile sensor) that can detect body temperature at an accuracy of +- 0.3C/0.54F at a range of 1-3 feet.
The device supports NFC Mifare for card access. Users who prefer to scan their id card can tap the card near the NFC reader for identification and access.
The unit supports dual cameras to perform sub-second facial recognition the person in front of the camera. Users have the option of choosing facial recognition for identification in addition to card access or may choose to only use card access for identification. Institutions may benefit in savings from using facial recognition entirely in lieu of card access as expenses related to card procurement and maintenance is no longer required.
The system alerts the user when it either does not recognize the user or when it detects a high than normal body temperature.
Alerts can also be sent to a central monitoring system where security agents can immediate identify who has high temperature and accordingly take an action.
Remote Management Software
The unit is managed over the LAN remotely by the Remote Management Server (RMS) Application installed on a PC. The RMS has powerful capabilities including managing multiple devices, attendance management, temperature settings etc. Security and temperature alerts from the devices are sent to the RMS application which then displays the device and security events on the event console that is monitored by security staff.
The unit can be integrated with turnstiles and doors to provide automated access. When a stranger is detected or a person is identified to have high temperature, the unit can lock the access to the facility.
Mounting & Installations
The unit is perfect for office buildings, factories, farms, educational institutes and any place where traditional access control systems are used to provide access to facilities.
Primarily to screen one person at a time at building access entry points such as turnstiles and gated entries and doors. A typical use case would be for the user to walk up-to the system which may be deployed on a wall or floor stand or on a desk. The device can identify the user as a specific employee or a visitor using either facial recognition or an NFC access card. The device takes a temperature reading from the forehead area of the person using the thermal camera. High temperature alerts are displayed to the person along with audible alerts. The alerts are also sent to the remote management application where these can be viewed by security personnel on the console. Security personnel must follow up on the alert by isolating the person and take a more accurate manual reading with an FDA approved medical thermometer in order to fully qualify the person as having a fever or not.
Pricing starts at $1350 for the tablet + floor stand.
This unit is not a medical FDA approved thermometer. It is to be be used for initial fast screening of people for elevated body temperatures.
Body temperature measurement from this device should not be solely or primarily relied upon to diagnose or exclude a diagnosis of a disease.
Elevated body temperature as detected by this device must be confirmed with a secondary NCIT or FDA approved clinical grade contact thermometer.
