Advanced Access Control

Access control with thermal cameras

The AAC (Advanced Access Control) module of CHECKINGplan® allows the integration of facial recognition and thermal measurement capabilities for secure access control, also in terms of health.

The spread of diseases such as Covid-19 make it necessary to implement complementary measures to ensure business continuity and the safety of people accessing different facilities.

100% compatible

The module, which can work independently or combined with other CHECKINGplan functionalities (Time Log, Work Reports, Running Checklist, etc.), provides real-time identification of subjects exceeding a configured thermal threshold, and then sending a silent warning to the control monitor or even to security and access personnel wearables.

Access modes

The system can be integrated into different access modes:

01. Free access

Identifying in groups of people accessing public entries those subjects that exceed the thresholds by facilitating their identification.

02. Linear or controlled access

Blocking turnstiles or other controlled access tools in case of a temperature higher than authorised. This type of control allows anonymity, denying access without the need to involve third parties. The subject can receive a notification directly via e-mail (or other channel) without going through intermediaries.

How does it work?

Area coverage

The cameras are installed to cover the access area. Depending on the size and characteristics of the access area, the necessary units will be installed. The number of cameras depends on the number of access points, m2 to be covered, and influx of people (simultaneous analysis required). 

On identifying a positive (a subject that exceeds the temperature defined in the system), the control post is notified (reception, security, etc.) and the subject can be viewed in order to proceed according to the organisation’s protocols.

In controlled or linear access points, the system is integrated with the turnstiles, locks or other pre-existing system to enable opening only in the case of a negative result. In this case, the cameras analyse each access line individually.

Anonymous system

Anonymous operation allows the subject to be notified exclusively of the result or temperature, via e-mail, SMS or other internal channels of the organisation. This can be done by integrating the CHECKINGplan facial recognition module (compatible with thermal cameras), or by combining both the subject identification (e.g., by means of access card, biometrics such as fingerprint, etc.) and thermal measurement in a lineal access.

Action Protocol (Example)

When a positive case is identified, the system can launch the action protocol established by the client, notifying the required users and highlighting the tasks and the workflow of the protocol itself. Example of a standard protocol:

01. Positive notification

Once a positive case is identified, the protocol is activated. Once the notification has been received in the CHECKINGplan app, the responsible person assigned to the protocol confirms their availability for the execution of the protocol.

02. Protocol development

The responsible person indicates the start of the task, automatically switching to the “In progress” state. At this point, the time data is automatically recorded (start, duration, end...).

03. Protocol check

The system indicates the steps and tasks to follow. Once the work is complete, it completes a checklist in the app, providing information about the procedures carried out. Once this report is completed, the status of the task is set to “Completed”.

04. Integrated report

The back office receives the complete report, stating the date, time and place of the tasks, responsible parties involved, details of the tasks performed, duration, incidents detected, etc. In addition, follow-up reports are configured with the number of incidents, actions taken, etc.

Capacity Control

The system counts the recognitions made, regardless of whether they provided negative or positive results in thermal detection.

This enables capacity control that generates statistical data, or even integration into control processes to restrict access once the set capacity levels have been reached.

Among other functionalities, the solution does the following:

Records all of the recognitions made, regardless of whether they are negative or positive in thermal detection.

This makes it possible to have a capacity control that offers statistical data or even to integrate it into control processes to restrict access once the set capacity levels have been reached.

Number of people identified in a time range

The error rate depends on the installation selected, the CHECKINGPlan team will advise you on this point.

Control of the percentage of current capacity achieved based on the maximum capacity

This type of analysis requires dividing input and output zones for net present capacity calculation. Different technologies can be integrated, incorporating a thermal sensor at the entrances and simple people counting at the exits by combining the data of the two systems to calculate current capacity.

The information, besides being integrated with the rest of the CHECKINGPlan modules, can be integrated with different third-party systems, both for control and security, as well as for blocking and opening physical access systems, visual signals (traffic lights to allow access or stop it), etc. 

In addition, the system can be integrated with web pages and other platforms in order to offer to clients or users indicators of capacity (previously treated) and thus to help them make the best decision on when to go to its facilities.

Areas of Application

In general, the module is useful in all environments where health access control is required due to contact risk or statistical fines.

Thermal cameras

M16 Thermal

The intelligent video system with an integrated high-performance thermal image sensor takes full advantage of the M16.

Camera design. Thanks to the two directly adjacent lenses, there is also a thermal overlay function with image overlay (thermal and optical) to determine the exact location of hotspots, such as fires, in a visible image.

M16 Thermal TR

“TR” here stands for thermal radiometry. This means that, in addition to carrying out existing MOBOTIX thermal camera functions, these cameras have a calibrated thermal image sensor that allows them to measure thermal radiation over the entire image area, even in individual pixels. The power consumption of a MOBOTIX Thermal TR is less than 8 watts.

S16 Thermal

The most flexible dual thermal camera on the market, offering connection to one or two outdoor devices, thermal sensor modules, and concealable camera module with sensor cables up to 3 metres long.

The S16 proves that even thermal cameras can have discreet installations.

S16 Thermal TR

Temperature values measured by TR technology can automatically trigger events from the camera (alarm, call, activation of a signal output, etc.) if the temperature rises above or drops below a set frequency range.
