ALPHARETTA, Ga., May 6, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Rochester Regional Health needed to enhance security at key health system facilities throughout Western New York. Securitronics, a security company specializing in the provision of intelligent, technologically empowered security systems was contacted for this project. In turn, Securitronics connected with ZKTeco USA to deploy a new state-of-the art access control solution using SpeedFace, a multi-functional, touchless standalone access control reader with facial and palm vein recognition.

Securitronics has installed these readers at various other facilities spread across multiple industries with great success, so it was pleased to help Rochester Regional to optimize its security while avoiding an overbearing or unwelcoming experience for staff and patients.
SpeedFace’s contact-less capabilities have proven transformative in healthcare environments. Practitioners, nurses, support staff and administrative personnel often have their hands full with pushing wheelchairs, carrying trays of medical supplies or transporting sensitive equipment around facilities. But SpeedFace’s hands-free, facial and palm vein recognition reading capabilities ensure that unencumbered door access can be gained with ease. This is essential in situations such as medical emergencies, where there is no time to waste looking for keys or access cards.
So, how does the technology work? SpeedFace is a fast-matching and highly accurate facial recognition platform, designed for indoor and outdoor use. It can store and match up to 50,000 face templates and 5000 palm vein templates, and within a second of recognizing a faculty member or patient’s face, doors are immediately unlocked. Further, it’s a multi-layered biometric access control solution that combines recognition technologies – face and palm vein identification – with body temperature and/or mask detection. It also has relay contacts for controlling the door locks and Wiegand and OSDP output to interface with third party access control systems as well.
This additional capability reinforces traditional security measures while maintaining COVID-19 sanitized environments – something essential in a healthcare context. SpeedFace not only met the health system’s tiered security criteria, it did so while improving ease of movement around facilities and managing deployment costs.
ZKTeco USA’s SpeedFace readers have met Rochester Regional Health’s goals and Securitronics reports that the health system has found the solution to be straightforward and logical and its successful expansion of the existing access control system. Through SpeedFace, Rochester Regional now has greater peace of mind, confident in the knowledge that only authorized staff can gain access to security-sensitive areas.
Terry Rivet, President and CEO, Securitronics, said, “The client has found the solution to be easy to use, budget friendly and the expansion of biometrics into their existing access control system to be a valuable investment that will warrant continued expansion of their technology.”
Manish Dalal, President and Founder, ZKTECO USA said” We have been working with Securitronics since last 7+ years and have always met the unique security challenges posed to us from time to time by their customers with our huge biometric hardware and software portfolio.”
