One technology that has completely altered the landscape of security tech development is facial detection. Being able to scan faces and accurately compare them against a database completely blows open the doors on what’s possible when it comes to keeping areas safe and secure. An example of facial detection being implemented includes Gatekeeper’s Pedestrian Identification Clearance System, or the PICS. This allows for real-time facial recognition to help security staff screen who ought to be granted access to a particular area, which leads us into three reasons why our Pedestrian Identification Clearance System should be incorporated in your security arsenal.
1. Creating an Efficient System
In many security situations, you want to do whatever you can to avoid creating a system that’s inefficient. You certainly don’t want to risk how secure you are as a result of this, but you want to strike the right balance between getting people through your system at a quick enough rate while also making sure you’re covering your bases. In the kinds of places where the PICS may be used, such as transportation hubs or border crossings, high wait times are unacceptable. Getting everyone securely through the system is the goal and PICS is capable of performing facial scans in real-time with that purpose in mind.
2. Creating a More Secure System
Facial scans are a fantastic way to make everything more secure, but how does the PICS do this so effectively? The technology is designed in such a way that non-optimal and background images are eliminated, meaning it only works off of high-quality images for facial recognition matching purposes. This allows for greater accuracy, ultimately lending itself to a more secure system when you’re as close to sure as possible that whoever is entering is authorized to do so.
3. Creating a Versatile System
Any situation where fast, reliable facial scans are necessary can call for use of the Pedestrian Identification Clearance System. This is especially applicable in situations where identification photos are already on record, like in commercial buildings, airport clearances, border crossings, and any other kind of transportation hub. If you’ve got photos on-hand and need to get people through security checkpoints quickly, the Pedestrian Identification Clearance System may be suitable for your needs.
