Biometric Access Control Systems in Food Manufacturing


Biometric Access Control Systems in Food Manufacturing

High levels of hygiene, safety and security is a must for food production businesses. Contamination and a low supply of ingredients could lead to disastrous consequences for the country.

Here, we explain the different Biometric Access Control Systems, such as Fingerprint Access Control System, Facial Recognition System and Temperature Detection Access Control, and why you ought to implement Biometric Access Control Systems for your business.

Why Should Food Manufacturers Implement Biometrics?

The disruption of food production could have devastating consequences for countries all over the world. The first consequence would be for consumers, who would be obliged to renounce food they prefer or pay much more for it because of shortages. Furthermore, food production represents 20% of the UK's GDP, so a shortage of food production would have a serious impact on the economy.

Two of the reasons for food shortages could be food contamination, such as the 2013 horsemeat scandal or the use of unsafe ingredients, with the potential risk of fires in manufacturing facilities.

Therefore, it is unquestionable that a high level of Access Control Solutions are required in food manufacturing businesses, not only to ensure that only authorised staff have access into the facility, but also to guarantee that only trained and qualified staff will be able to enter areas of high risk. Biometric Access Control, including Temperature Detection Solutions, Fingerprint Access Control, Biometric Facial Recognition and Biometric Access Control IEVO, compared to Smart Card Access Control, avoid the exchange of Smart Cards and therefore allow only truly authorised persons to enter certain facilities. The following paragraphs will explain each of these biometric solutions in detail.

Biometric Face Recognition

Our Face Recognition Access Control is one of the most compact Facial Recognition Access Control Systems in the world. It uses the most advanced optical technology, called Live Face Detection (LFD), which ensures accurate face recognition. In addition, the Facial Recognition Temperature Detection, which, with the support of thermal detection cameras, does exactly what it says on the tin. It can be used for Time & Attendance, Access Control, Visitor Monitoring and Fire Roll Call. It can also be integrated with Tensor’s software, WinTA.NET.

Fingerprint Access Control Systems

Tensor’s Fingerprint Access Control Systems are designed to meet the requirements of people who want to be sure that only authorised people can have the access to specific areas of the facilities. Two models are available:

  • T3464: Suitable for indoors, this stylish access control reader is perfect for small spaces.
  • T3464x: Suitable for outdoors, this elegant access control reader can work reliably even in harsh weather conditions.

Biometric Access Control IEVO

Tensor’s IEVO Biometric Reader, through advanced imaging technologies, delivers a high standard of security, lower operational costs and an upper-level of convenience for our customers. These Access Control Readers are the most advanced Fingerprint Access Control Systems on the market and they are available in two versions:

  • IEVO ULTIMATE: For both indoor and outdoor use, this is a robust reader that works perfectly even in extreme weather conditions. It can be used in airports, construction sites, hospitals, etc.
  • IEVO MICRO: For indoor use only, it is a high-tech, affordable biometric solution that does not have all the functionality of IEVO ULTIMATE, such as offices and housing developments.

Biometric Access Control IEVO can be integrated with Tensor’s Access Control Software, known as WinAC.NET.
