One of the most promising advances in commercial security technology is facial recognition, integrated with the existing security tech that allows for saving on costs while also strengthening the level of security. Facial recognition can make use of biometric technology that analyzes the characteristics of a person’s face with images recorded from a surveillance video camera. This component of security provides instant alerts and feedback and leaves the subjects entirely unaware of the process. Any commercial facility looking for a great way to enhance security can find the right solution through integrating facial recognition, great for office buildings, hospitals, dispensaries, and so much more.

Facial recognition tools are able to integrate flawlessly with existing security software, as well as being easy to program for interaction with a company’s computer system. You won’t need to spend additional money and time on redeveloping your own software, because facial recognition integration is already adaptable.
Used in key areas like entrances or check-in lobbies facial recognition can be a great asset when integrated into your existing video surveillance system, it is great for environments with large crowds in constant movement. This solution will capture a culprit’s identity with ease and is essential to any high traffic facility like schools, airports, shopping centers, and stadiums. The software used matches faces taken from real-time video. Through a database of previously stored images of faces you can categorize the faces in the database based on your identification needs.
2. Incorporated with Access Control

Through use of a database with previously stored images, real time facial recognition software is able to grant or deny access to private areas and also detect unauthorized individuals. Facial recognition also integrates well with automatic opening of turnstiles another great security measure that does not require manual recognition. Fast and accurate identification validation has been made possible through facial recognition and has ultimately improved the security and check-in efficiency of many commercial facilities.
3. Method of Customer Service
The use of facial recognition software allows the algorithm within your security system to send out an alert when it identifies particular individuals from a predetermined list. These selected individuals allow for being signaled by the presence of shoplifters or potential terrorists, as well as recognizing VIP customers who you may want to receive special notice for.

This prevents time fraud among employees, which means coworkers cannot clock each other in and out since everyone would have to pass a face scanning device to clock-in and out for work. This is a quick process due to the fact that employees won’t have to prove their identities at a check in desk or clock in with dysfunctional plastic cards. The process by which facial recognition recognizes individuals will prevent any sly employees from trying to trick the scanner through the way that the scanners measure various distinguishable facial features by facial recognition tech through creating a faceprint that is then translates into a numerical code. The data collected by the system is then put in a database and compared to other detected faces when a certain person stands in front of the camera. Some of the features the software scans include length of the jawline, distance between and depth of the eye sockets, and the nose width.
Though it is important for facility leaders to trust their employees, they should still be wary of any possible poor employee morals. Time fraud is one of the most common violations of work ethics, fortunately facial identification can completely prevent that.
