Facial recognition has brought identification to a whole new level. Face recognition is a solution designed to recognize a human face without requiring physical contact. The solution runs through algorithms that match the facial nodes of a person to images that were saved in the database. Facial recognition CCTV cameras use multiple methods and technologies to detect faces, including 3D modeling, comparing faces in images or videos, analyzing entire faces or partial features, and so on.
Security of any organization or home can be enhanced by using facial recognition. The versatile nature of this technology makes it a good choice for added security.
In terms of physical security, facial recognition could be hugely beneficial to maintaining a building or a property’s security but there are many other applications for facial recognition for home and businesses as well. In addition to enhancing safety, face recognition systems open up new approaches to the development of practical strategies for home and business owners to adopt.
Face recognition can work as a means of access control to ensure that only authorized individuals gain access into homes or businesses. Keys or cards are no longer required, eliminating the risk of being lost or stolen. Entry can easily be tracked and monitored. Sensitive areas of facilities like labs, boardrooms, bank vaults, and training centers for athletes can now be made more secure. Some schools are now using facial recognition to prevent anyone entering who does not belong, eliminating the need for a manual check of credentials. This can also significantly cut down lines at security checkpoints.
PREVENT RETAIL THEFT
Shoppers’ faces can be captured and compared to a database to identify people with a history of shoplifting crimes. Security can then be alerted to reduce risks.
FACILITATE SECURE TRANSACTIONS
You can now have customers pay for their purchases by scanning their faces as a payment option.
With facial recognition software, there is little way anyone can submit a fake ID for entry, purchase, or other uses. It takes the burden off staff for identifying anyone trying to falsify their identity.
TIME CLOCKS AND ATTENDANCE
Many schools are using facial recognition to track attendance. Businesses can monitor when employees come and go, eliminating the need for time sheets or clocks.
