The touchless facial reader, integrated with Symmetry, quickly scans faces to determine if an individual is allowed access to a door and authenticates up to 30 people per minute. SAFR SCAN’s facial detection technology is 99.9 percent accurate and uses anti-spoofing technology to ensure accurate identification. The integration provides a secure and reliable solution that is ideal for both indoors and outdoors in any lighting and environment.
