Touch-free authentication system ensures safe work environment and security in private premises
ScanViS, a smart city solution of Comba Telecom, was selected by China Mobile International Limited (“CMI”) to provide intelligent access control to its data center in Hong Kong.
With hundreds of engineers, specialists and related staff working in the CMI multistorey data center, a fast and accurate processing solution was needed to enhance the effectiveness of access control. In this case, ScanViS GateGuard access control system was deployed to facilitate identity verification and attendance tracking.
Using sophisticated AI technology, ScanViS GateGuard identifies CMI staff by analyzing facial feature points and automates check-in/check-out processes. Additionally, the solution helps CMI realize efficiencies by greatly reducing administration work compared to the traditional access card and password system while at the same time allowing for easy staff roster amendments.
Apart from adding security layers to CMI’s data center, the system offered a scalable solution with a central management platform to monitor all devices installed on the premises, making the system easily manageable as the number of devices increases. All these solution features improve the capability of real-time access monitoring, increase the productivity of the administrative and security team, and ensure physical access to the data center premises and facilities is authorized to the right people.
As the COVID-19 pandemic prevails, technology has become an essential part of life for all health-conscious enterprises, touchless access control system is an effective solution to maintain a healthy and hygienic office. Using facial recognition access control technology, the GateGuard Pro installed for CMI is a contactless device that essentially reduces the number of contact surfaces. Besides, its mask detection function safeguards the work environment by stopping personnel who are not wearing masks at the access points. The system is being rolled out at numerous enterprises to reduce the risk of disease transmission including CMI’s data center.
