AB Access Control (part of AB Glass) can now install a cutting-edge access control system for premises that incorporates facial recognition software with the ability to assess the body temperature of the individual seeking access to a building or premises.

The system means a company will be able to assess the health status of employees or visitors and their potential for being infected with Covid-19. The device could be used at any type of workplace including commercial offices, factories or apartments.

The equipment has a temperature accuracy of +/-0.3ºC as long as the person is standing between 0.3m and 0.7m away. It can be wall mounted or free standing and programmed to set off an alarm if the temperature indicates a person might be ill.

Alan Brayley, managing director of AB Glass, said: “We have worked through the pandemic, helping our customers in every way we can. But as a lot more companies start to return to the workplace, they will be keen to implement all precautions and safety measures they can to ensure the safety and peace of mind of their employees.

“This new offering from AB Access Control is extremely innovative as it allows companies to monitor the health of their employees and the chance of infection on an ongoing basis, making it much easier to avoid further infection. It allows people to return to work knowing that every precaution is being taken to ensure their safety.”
