Thermo - access control that can do more

Safety and innovation are the key values that contributed to the creation of the design of our security system. We have opened new perspectives for contactless identity checking, body temperature control and remote monitoring of objects in real time. One product, many possibilities. We have created a modern way of granting access to authorized persons, minimizing the risk of spreading epidemiological threats.

Our system is perfect for facilities that require meticulous traffic control. The system is used in places such as offices, workplaces and public buildings. Well-thought-out design and flexible software allow convenient integration with existing access control systems (e.g. IDO ACS). The digital output system allows you to control a turnstile, electronic door lock or entrance barrier, and if a threat is detected, it activates an alarm or notification system.

Face recognition

The device matches the image from the camera to the user’s profile based on a set of database entries. Only part of the exposed face is needed for proper detection, so the equipment works perfectly for people wearing glasses, a helmet or a protective mask. An advanced image processing algorithm also makes it possible to detect the absence of a mask. The integrated sound interface using a speech synthesizer allows you to easily remind yourself to cover your nose and mouth, which allows you to react quickly and improve the safety and hygiene of the facility guarded by our system.

Temperature measurement

The most efficient way to obtain satisfactory accuracy and repeatability, while maintaining a reasonable price of the device, was to use a ready-made IR radiation detection module. Integration with a microcontroller makes the device enable non-contact and fully automatic measurement of human body temperature. Since fever is the first symptom of many diseases, measuring body temperature is one of the simplest and most effective ways to determine whether a person is healthy. The facial recognition function and additional algorithms analyzing the captured image allow you to ignore other heat sources and prevent false threat readings.

Technology

The central unit of the device is the Hi3516C V500 SoC system based on a dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor. The system is designed for intelligent image processing from industrial IP cameras with Full HD 1080p resolution. Additionally, it allows convenient control of the two-way audio system thanks to support for G.711, G.726 and APCM codecs. As an optical converter, we used a reliable Sony IMX327 sensor with the highest sensitivity in its price class (also in low light).

device operating scheme

The device works in two modes – online and offline.

The device is configured using a web browser. In online mode, the device compares the image with an external database of any size. At the same time, it transmits measurement data and camera feed in real time. The whole thing is controlled using a SaaS application in our cloud, which also provides the database infrastructure.
The device’s built-in memory allows you to store data enabling error-free recognition of several thousand faces and simultaneous recording of a several-day measurement session with automatic deletion of the oldest entries. This allows the system to operate properly and ensure the security of the facility without access to the network.
The project was created based on the Linux operating system, which guarantees smooth and reliable operation stability. This also introduces another level of universality, because our solution is not strictly subordinated to the SoC, but to the selected OS, so you can easily move to another platform in the event of a hardware update. This saves you time and money because you don’t have to retrain users to use the system. Additionally, our experience in programming embedded systems allowed us to guarantee the security of user data by implementing proven connection encryption methods and hardware memory security.

Mechanics and comfort

The system is equipped with a tripod mounting system and separate mounting holes for placing the camera on the wall. The whole thing is enclosed in an elegant and durable housing with IP67 tightness class, which allows proper operation also outside the protected building, e.g. in dusty or humid conditions. The WiFi wireless communication module allows you to conveniently install the device anywhere, without the need to provide access to appropriate network cabling. The well-thought-out design includes numerous service facilities so that in the event of a failure, any repair or replacement of components will be carried out efficiently and can be carried out by the user based on the service manual or external remote assistance.

Thermo system – control, safety, and hygiene

Difficult times require unconventional solutions. The Thermo system is such a solution. It combines the features of an access gate based on facial recognition technology, a personal protective equipment control system, and remote temperature measurement.

It ensures safety and helps maintain hygiene in workplaces, and at the same time does not hinder the performance of tasks by people in the area under Thermo’s control.
