Access control can be an expensive and complicated process for organizations to manage. Even in the simplest of cases, most systems rely on the distribution of keys or FOBs which are costly and prone to loss, theft or inappropriate use.
And, in the worst case scenario, these physical access devices can be used by unauthorized personnel to access your organization without permission because there is no validation that the security token is being used by the proper individual.
Onsite security guards, the other traditional approach to managing facility access, are expensive, and can only be in one location at a time. Staffing every gate and/or controlled access door can become cost-prohibitive very quickly.
Remote Access Control
The Birdseye Security solution combines the intelligent use of technology with professionally trained Birdseye security agents. For access control, we have designed the ID-Verifi™ identity validation system.
It allows our Birdseye agents to verify facial matches to government issued (or custom) identity cards – ensuring that only the right people are gaining access to your facility.
Pairing our custom-developed hardware technology and our professionally-trained remote agents, the ID-Verifi system ensures that access is granted based on the individuals’ rights, not simply how a FOB has been programmed or what doors a key can open.
All personnel movements are properly logged and video recording archived for future analysis.
And unlike onsite security, our remote agents can efficiently “staff” all gates and controlled access doors in a facility, 24/7.
HOW DOES ID-VERIFI™ WORK?
The ID-Verifi™ system incorporates several elements to ensure that only those on your authorized entry list gain access to your facility.
The system incorporates two primary high definition cameras – one to capture the face of the individual, the other focused on the ID. A Birdseye agent compares these images – ensuring a facial match, and that the individual is present on the authorized access list.
While some access control systems use software to do facial matching, we at Birdseye believe we achieve optimal results with actual humans verifying ID. If necessary, the agent can engage in two-way conversations with the person requesting access, to further verify any information needed to ensure identification is correct.
Using ID-Verifi™, agents can quickly process unexpected visitors, vendors, suppliers, or anyone else who may need access to your facility and may not be on your regular access list. Once identification has been verified, further instructions can be given (if required), and access is granted.
RELIABLE FACIAL RECOGNITION
Facial recognition software is a remarkable technological achievement. However, as with any technology innovation, it’s never 100% perfect, and is prone to being fooled by individuals with nefarious intent.
Birdseye agents doing live comparisons and ID verification can provide a more reliable, fool-proof match verified through multiple data points.
All interactions are documented and reported on – allowing us to provide video evidence in the case of any issues or facility incidents.
