Facial recognition access control terminals and systems

Contactless, fast and secure, our technology meets the requirements and demands of modern-day operations and brings access control into the 21st century. Streamline both your on-site security and workforce management with our all-encompassing integrated hardware and software.

The Suprema FaceLite Facial Recognition Access Control Terminal is one of the world’s most compact face recognition stations, offering very high matching speeds, accuracy, and level of security.

FaceLite can be very easily integrated into a new or existing Tensor access control system, as it is fully supported by our WinAC.NET software suite. Following a fast and easy initial enrollment, the reader will allow quick and easy access within the building and can be even used together with your existing smartcards (if supported) for additional security.

The non-contact facial recognition access control technology provides a fast, highly accurate biometric solution for identifying employees and/or visitors and granting or denying them access to the site.

Featuring patented optic engineering, the facial recognition access control station achieves up to 25,000 lx of operating illuminance which in turn, brings all-round confidence regardless of lighting conditions.

FaceLite includes the latest optical technology and a Live Face Detection (LFD) feature that helps it accurately distinguish the faces of users. It perfectly blocks spoofing using photographs or 3D printed masks too.

Packed in a compact and ergonomically designed structure, FaceLite provides exceptional performance and usability for diverse access control, time and attendance applications of any size.

Core benefits of facial recognition access control

Different to biometric access control, deploying a facial recognition access control system can have multiple, unique benefits for your organisation. These include:

Contactless authentication

This technology is both fast and accurate, instantly validating identity to protect access to sensitive areas. It is an excellent solution for the zone management of food-processing factories or hospitals where hygiene is important.

Identity protection

This secure access control system will guarantee that only authorised individuals gain access to secure locations while requiring far less personal information than other forms of identification.

Enhanced security

Using a facial recognition access control terminal in your facility security setup will provide an additional layer of security beyond keys, fobs and smart cards. This solution is perfect for data centres, research institutes, banks and any organisations that require improved security.

Temperature detection access control


The Suprema FaceLite Facial Recognition Access Control Terminals now come enhanced with temperature and thermal detection access control.

Whilst scanning an occupants face, the cameras are now able to utilise thermal sensors and indicate whether or not the occupant’s temperature is above or below a set number.

Should it be above the safety line, access is not granted and the user will be alerted. This is also then recorded on the WinAC.NET software.

This line of advanced facial recognition temperature detection technology ensures maximum safety and protection for your employees and visitors as part of our Covid Secure initiative.
