  • Face mask wearing alert, is an Option that can be enabled.
  • If the recognizing face does not wear a mask, the device will prompt a voice reminder. At the same time, the authentication or attendance is valid.
  • Forced mask wearing alert, is an Option that can be enabled.
  • If the recognizing face does not wear a mask, the device will prompt a voice reminder. At the same time, the authentication or attendance will be failed.
  • Triggers voice prompt when detecting abnormal temperature.
  • Configurable door status (open/close) when detecting abnormal temperature.
  • Transmits on-line and off-line temperature information to the client software via TCP/IP communication and saves the data on the client software.
  • Face recognition duration <0.2 s/User; face recognition accuracy rate ≥99%.
  • 6000 face capacity, 6000 card capacity, and 100,000 event capacity.
  • Suggested height for face recognition: between 1.4 m and 1.9 m.
  • Watchdog design and tamper function.
  • Audio prompt for authentication result.
  • NTP, manually time synchronization, and auto synchronization.
  • Connects to external access controller or Wiegand card reader via Wiegand protocol.
  • Connects to secure door control unit via RS-485 protocol to avoid the door opening when the terminal is destroyed.
  • Imports and export data to the device from the client software.
