A20 Integrating Door Interlocking with People Counter Sensor
The door interlocking technology from Huomann is used in safety and security critical applications where not only access authority but also positive proof of identity is required before granting access.
An automated door interlocking is a physical access control solution comprising of a space between two interlocking doors. One door must be closed and locked before the second door is permitted to open.
The door interlocking is equipped with a People Counter, a three-dimensional optical imaging camera to count the number of people inside the secure area.
Access authentication is validated using multiple factors of authentication including: something you own (smartcard), something you are (biometric identification such as fingerprint) and/or something you know (PIN code).
Only when the count of people who have been positively verified equals the count of people identified by the optical imaging camera is access to the secure inner area permitted.
The door interlocking is installed at the point of access to a secure area or building to ensure that all people who need to gain access to the secure area have their identity checked before access is permitted. This will ensure that proof of identity is established before a person or group of people are given access.
When a person or group of people enter a door interlocking from the outer door, both doors are secured. The Borer system then uses the People Counter camera to count the number of people inside the door interlocking.
Each person inside the door interlocking is required to register with smartcard, biometric and optional PIN. Only when the identities of all occupants have been positively verified and their access credentials checked is passage permitted.
