Face Recognition Sign-in – Visitor Manager Central FaceID

The Visitor Manager Central FaceID function lets your visitors and employees sign-in on iPad kiosks with a simple photo capture.

Why is it useful?

The answers to this are very simple and highly rewarding.

  • Sign-in guests faster
  • No need to touch the kiosk / minimise interaction
  • Avoid long queues and line congestion
  • More secure sign-in
  • Step into the future of security and safety

How it works?

Guests and employees who have had their photo captured by Visitor Manager Central can express sign in with face recognition technology upon their next arrival.

We first need to capture an image with a previous visit to register the person in your account, this is for both external guests, and registered users like employees.

How to enable FaceID?

Your Visitor Manager Central subscription will need the FaceID feature enabled.

This is a premium feature that can be included in your plan (get in touch with us for this function). You will need to customise your Kiosk to use FaceID.

Note: FaceID requires a camera element added as part of the sign in flow.

What happens if FaceID does not recognise the person? #

At times this may be for the following reasons.

  • Photo is not already on file
  • Camera has low to poor light level
  • Face is not presented clear enough to the camera
  • Visitor has significantly changed appearance
  • Network error

If you feel this is an error, please get in touch with your Visitor Manager Central support team and report the issue include the date, time and visitors name.
