Access and information

AXESS AG

Access only with face mask and normal body temperature

The new module for all access control systems: A sensor measures body temperature and a camera detects whether a protective mouth and nose mask is being worn. Only then will the gate open.

New situations require new solutions. This also applies to daily life in times of Corona. In this context Axess has launched a new module. It measures body temperature to detect whether a person has a fever and also checks whether they are wearing a mouth-nose protection mask. Only then will the gate open.

Many possible applications

This function is important for stadia, museums, exhibition centers, leisure parks and swimming pools and allows operators and event organizers to reopen their doors in line with the new legal requirements. “Requests from international markets have prompted us to act quickly here”, says Oliver Suter, the company’s CEO and CSO. He is the driving force behind the project and, together with the development team, has managed to implement this new product in record time. In the future, the module will be integrated into all product lines together with an additional face recognition system.

Quick reaction due to internal development

Axess has been supplying contact-free gates from the start and developed this new application during the eight weeks of the shutdown. “This is possible because both the software and hardware are developed in-house, which allows us to react dynamically to the market,” says Claudia Kopetzky, CMO of Axess AG and as such responsible for international marketing. Apart from this new product, all Axess systems can be operated contact-free. Their range of e-commerce products allows bookings to be made from home. Tickets are issued at the vending machines, which operate 24 hours per day without contact with other people. Existing tickets can be reloaded in the webshop. The use of RFID or NFC technology is the key to walk-through access without any further contact points.
