Akuvox A05C Access Control unit features

Akuvox A05C Authentication Methods

Face recognition access control icon

Face Recognition contactless authentication

Secure face recognition with anti-spoofing technology. Registered users simply stand in front of the A05C and its dual camera technology automatically scans their face for fast and secure identity verification and contactless entry or exit through the door.

QR Code authentication for access control icon

QR Code scanning for temporary access permissions

The A05's QR code recognition is ideal for temporary access permissions - for instance for deliveries or service engineer access.

To use this feature you simply generate a unique QR code using the Akuvox Smart Plus app. After the QR code is produced you send it to the users phone; the user then displays the QR code to the intercom camera and it will allow the user instant access to the building within the chosen time period.

Bluetooth Authentication for access control icon

Bluetooth contactless authentication from smart phone

Bluetooth BLE authentication allows touch-free access directly from users’ smart phones.

RFID authentication for access control icon

RFID access via card or keyfob

The built-in RFID reader allows for contactless, secure access using RFID cards or keyfobs.

Why use body temperature detection for access control?

Akuvox A05C Access Control Unit with thermal detectionHigh traffic main entrances and staff access points such as hospitals, transport hubs, factories and schools are increasingly using staff resource to manually test all people entering the building for fever-like symptoms using standard handheld infrared thermometers.

As well as taking-up valuable human resource, this manual testing puts staff at further risk of virus and disease transmission.

Using the Akuvox A05C Access Control Unit with optional MD02 Temperature Measurement Module provides a fully-automated first line of defence to highlight users entering the building who may be displaying fever temperatures symptomatic of a virus. The Akuvox access system can be set to highlight a specific temperature range and, where required, deny access to anyone presenting above the 'safe' temperature range.
