Latest Security Technology: Biometric Facial Recognition Security Solutions

Laine Peterson10Nov 2018Audio/Visual, Security

Biometric security is a security mechanism used to authenticate and provide access to a facility or system based on the automatic and instant verification of an individual’s physical characteristics.

Because biometric security evaluates an individual’s bodily elements or biological data, it is the strongest and most foolproof physical security technique used for identity verification, according to Techpedia.

Could biometric facial recognition solve security problems for good? This cutting-edge technology is already making an impact on those who have implemented this security system in their facilities. This feature is been touted as a cutting-edge solution to security issues due to the unique verification process it requires. It identifies user identities through AI, offering a safe alternative to traditional passwords.

Let’s look at some specifics:

What Is Biometric Facial Recognition?

If you’ve invested in new tech recently, you may already be using face recognition tools.

Briefly, this technology identifies users by biometrics that are unique to an individual. In other words, your face becomes your entry to a device or a system.

Biometric security is mainly implemented in environments with critical physical security requirements or that are highly prone to identity theft. Biometric security-based systems or engines store human body characteristics that do not change over an individual’s lifetime. These include fingerprints, eye texture, voice, hand patterns and facial recognition.

Despite the current buzz surrounding it, biometric facial technology isn’t exactly new. As early as 2012, some Android devices introduced a Face Lock feature that used facial recognition.

However, this technology has come a long way since then.

To regulate access for approved employees, clients, etc, an individual’s body characteristics are pre-stored in a biometric security system or scanner, which is only accessible by authorized personnel. As the individual walks into a facility or tries to gain access to a system, the biometric scanner will evaluate his or her physical characteristics, which are matched with stored records. If a match is located, the individual is granted access.

If not, there are many options for ensuring the unapproved individual are kept out. For example, a recent client, Sobe Wine and Self Storage needed high-level security implemented with biometric access control. Due to a large amount of foot traffic around Sobe Wine and Self Storage, the facility needed the most state-of-the-art protection system to keep out unwanted visitors. We installed a mantrap security access control system with two sets of interlocking doors, requiring the first set to close before the second set opens.

Other biometric technologies such as just scanning irises or fingerprints are also available, but facial recognition is the most high-level access control we offer our clients for maximum security.

What Biometric Recognition Technology Means for the Future of Security

One thing’s for certain: this innovation is moving us a major step forward into the future.

Businesses may be among the biggest benefactors of biometric recognition technology. It is the much-needed answer to eliminate the impact of theft or burglary. With biometric technology, businesses can rest easy knowing their premises is the utmost secure with a screening process that ensures only approved individuals are entering your building’s grounds.
