AMAG Technology, an Allied Universal company, announced its Symmetry Access Control software now integrates with RealNetworks, LLC SAFR SCAN facial authentication reader to provide door access.

The touchless facial reader, integrated with Symmetry, scans faces to determine if an individual is allowed access to a door and authenticates up to 30 people per minute. SAFR SCAN’s facial detection technology is said to be 99.9 percent accurate and uses anti-spoofing technology to ensure accurate identification. The integration provides a secure and reliable solution that is ideal for both indoors and outdoors in any lighting and environment, according to the announcement.

The server-to-server integration between Symmetry Access Control and SAFR SCAN is transparent to the user. All data between the two systems automatically syncs. Cardholder data in Symmetry automatically transfers to the SAFR system. Other key features include:

  • Tailgating gets reported with real-time alerts in Symmetry.
  • The system’s real-time reporting and auditing can help users meet compliance requirements.
  • Unbiased facial characteristics distinguish between skin tones.
  • Easily works with masks.
  • Operates with Symmetry M2150 and Symmetry M4000 Controllers with OSDP.

“We are excited to offer an integration that provides seamless, dual-authentication for our customers with SAFR SCAN,” said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Product Management, Jonathan Moore. “The facial detection and authentication technology allows users to quickly and securely access doors in any environment when used with Symmetry Access Control.”

Users can enroll though Symmetry Mobile, AMAG’s mobile credential management platform. From the app, users can take their own photo and — when approved by the security team — it will automatically synchronize into the SAFR SCAN database.

“AMAG’s vision to constantly enhance the customer experience with technologically advanced solutions is perfectly aligned with what SCAN was designed to provide with a facial authentication reader,” said Paul DiPeso, president of SAFR from RealNetworks. “We’re thrilled with the partnership between AMAG and SAFR.”
