Aged care facilities depend on a secure environment to provide optimal care to residents, and safe working conditions for medical staff.
Face recognition solutions can automate many security measures, mainly by scanning faces of visitors, comparing them to watch lists and instantly alerting security staff to known offenders.
The software can also verify authorized staff to enter specific facilities and high-risk areas, and authenticate residents during registration and entrance processes.
Aged care homes need to guarantee that only authorized staff and registered visitors are allowed to enter the living areas. A face check can support efficient access control.
Residents’ differing levels of cognitive ability influences their mobility. Some can leave the premises, wander in the grounds, whilst others have to remain inside or only leave when accompanied. Face recognition technologies can monitor access rights to certain areas, and alert to an unattended person wandering off or leaving the building.
Residents often lose or borrow their keys, access cards and fobs, or don’t have the mobility to use them. Facial recognition offers an easier, more hygienic way of accessing floors and rooms.
In addition, facial analysis technology can detect and alert to persons not wearing a required protective face mask.
Cognitec’s FaceVACS-VideoScan solution delivers intelligent technology with industry-leading match speed, sending watch list alerts and visitor notifications within seconds. Surpassing traditional video surveillance systems, the technology detects and extracts people’s faces in live video streams or video footage, and constantly compares them to each other and to images in databases.
Besides instant alerting to known persons, the software uses anonymous facial analysis to count individuals, generate demographical information, track people movement in time and space, detect frequent visitors and crowds, and much more.
Cognitec is the only company worldwide that has worked exclusively on face recognition technology since its inception in 2002. The company’s innovative products deliver industry-leading face matching accuracy, and are supported by an Australian expert team located in Sydney. The German technology is used extensively by both the Australian government and commercial enterprises.
