Softworks, has introduced a new Contactless Biometric Fever Recognition Terminal to their clocking range to help keep employees and visitors safe during Covid-19.

The new Biometric Fever Recognition terminals have a high definition camera for contactless facial and palm recognition combined with an infrared sensor for real-time temperature detection. Where a normal body temperature is detected, the terminal can allow access based on facial recognition even while wearing a mask.

Where an elevated temperature is detected, a real-time alert and reading can be displayed on screen. The terminals can also be used for anonymous thermal scanning and temperature detection of visitors, customers and vendors, keeping workplaces and employees safe and protected.

Commenting on the introduction of the new Contactless Fever Recognition terminals Andrew Ferguson, CEO of Softworks explained “We’ve been helping organisations automate tasks related to employee management in areas such as Time and Attendance and Scheduling for over 30 years and provide a wide range of clocking options to suit each organisation’s unique environment.”

“Many of our customers were already using biometric technology for Access Control and to record Employee Time and Attendance. When Covid-19 hit we began looking at ways we could help them by providing an additional layer of health and safety protection to this process. With this in mind, we introduced this new biometric facial and palm recognition terminal to our range of clocks. It’s contactless and includes fever recognition technology.”

“We’ve already rolled out the new terminals to all types of organisations from Healthcare to Retail to Manufacturing across Ireland and the UK and are in the process of installing many more as employers look to provide a safe and accurate way of controlling building access and recording employee Time and Attendance during the current pandemic and beyond.”

“It’s a stressful and challenging time for organisations right now and people are working harder than ever. The new terminal means employers can now provide an added layer of health and safety protection and ensure they’re doing all in their power to help manage the well-being of their workforce now and into the future” said Mr. Ferguson.
