With cloud-based video intercom and security systems, including 2 wire video intercom, security teams don’t need to come to the office to manage authorizations and credentials. They can add or remove users and change access levels from anywhere through mobile or browser interfaces. Unregistered visitors can speak with their host from the door terminal and are granted remote access even from outside the building. Entry surveillance video intercoms, such as wireless video intercom, or wireless audio intercom, are being used to monitor the entry and record events to the cloud. Security teams can view entry photos or video from anywhere in real time or later on.
Russia and China are using facial recognition to monitor quarantine restrictions and wearing of masks. In America, companies like MasterCard, Amazon, Chevron, Walmart, and McDonald’s are either using or planning to use facial recognition for a variety of purposes—from analyzing moods to authenticating payments. The latest video intercom systems offer built-in facial recognition that can be activated as an option where a higher level of security is required. Face recognition allows touchless entry for users, who just have to look at the intercom camera to unlock the door. No need to dig for a phone or start an app.
