PesGuard INTRODUCTORY VIDEO
People Counting and Time Management System
PesGuard is designed with a Cloud-Edge approach.
Owlook, the Pensees Management server, contains all the settings, user databases, and management of all PesGuard devices. PesGuard, the frontend device, performs facial recognition, authentication and authorization, temperature taking, and grants access to staff and visitors accordingly. It then sends all event data to the Pensees Management server. It also receives pictures and a list of authorized users from the server.
The Pensees Management server is Cloud-hosted and thus can be accessed efficiently from any location. All communication is protected and encrypted. There is no need for a backend server to be installed locally. As the server is on the Cloud, it is not necessary for additional servers.
If required, the Pensees Management server can be deployed locally as well.
The PesGuard makes use of facial recognition technology to enable swift and convenient door access for approved personnel. The PesGuard is able to detect faces regardless of whether the user is wearing a mask or not, and its liveness recognition function prevents it from detecting faces from photos or videos. The PesGuard is able to detect a face in less than 0.3 seconds, and has an accuracy rate of ≥99%.
The PesGuard comes with Pensees' Owlook Cloud Dashboard, which records in real-time the check-in and check-out times of staff and registered visitors. It is able to store the information of up to 30,000 individuals, and the recording the face of one individual requires only one clear front-view photograph. The attendance and movement data can be exported in Excel format.
PesGuard is able to support a Blacklist and Whitelist function. Blacklisted individuals will not be allowed access by the PesGuard. Arrival of whitelisted individuals, such as VIP guests, will also trigger a notification when detected by the PesGuard for employees to respond accordingly. This dual-list function reduces the manpower needed to monitor entrances and doorways, and allows personnel to react quickly to visitors of different categories.
Blacklist and Whitelist
People Counting and Time Management
PesGuard's Cloud-based dashboard provides a real-time count of the number of people in an area, as well as a breakdown of past and present data. The Time Management System, contained within a single dashboard, gives the administrator a clear view of the manpower present and any capacity limits.
The PesGuard is equipped with a 'Help' button for visitors and other non-registered personnel whose entry cannot be approved by the PesGuard. When they press the 'Help' button, a message together with a snapshot of the visitor taken by the PesGuard will be sent to the administrator. The administrator can then remotely open the door using the Pensees Cloud Dashboard without having to travel to the door, thereby enabling convenient, swift and safe visitor reception.

One-Click ePSS Generation for Construction
Using entry and exit data collected by the PesGuard. administrators in the construction industry can make use of the Pensees Cloud Dashboard's inbuilt function to generate Electronic Productivity Submission System (ePSS) reports in excel format.
Facial recognition technology has come a long way in recent years and has become increasingly popular in various industries - particularly security and access control. The benefits of facial recognition access control systems are numerous and can greatly enhance operations.
Why are biometric access control systems popular?
Biometric access control systems, such as those featuring facial recognition, are becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to provide higher levels of security compared to traditional access control methods. They rely on unique physical characteristics, such as facial features of people, making them much more difficult to bypass. On the other hand, traditional methods such as keycards and passwords, can be easily replicated or stolen, making them vulnerable to security breaches.
Another reason for their popularity is the convenience they provide. Biometric access control systems eliminate the need for employees to carry around keys or remember complex passwords for access. This not only saves time but also reduces the risk of lost or stolen keys and forgotten passwords.
The advantages of facial recognition access control
Facial recognition access control, a type of biometric-based technology, has several advantages over other biometric access control methods. Firstly, it is a non-intrusive method, as it does not require employees to touch or place their fingerprints on a scanner. With a touch-free experience, it is sanitary and this eliminates the need for regular cleaning and reduces the risk of spreading germs.
Secondly, these systems can be integrated with other security systems, such as CCTV cameras, providing organizations with an additional layer of security. Apart from access control, organizations can also monitor and track individuals as they move throughout the building.
Thirdly, the results of facial recognition systems can be easily verified by the administrator, as the snapshot of the persons for each transaction is captured and stored for security purposes, as part of the in/out records of the people going through the facial recognition systems.
The speed of the technology is also another advantage. Facial recognition systems can quickly and accurately identify individuals, even in large crowds, making it ideal for high-traffic areas such as airports and train stations.
Why should organizations adopt such systems?
There are many benefits of facial recognition access control systems and they greatly enhance the security and efficiency of any organization. By implementing such systems, organizations can ensure that only authorized individuals have access to sensitive areas and information, while also providing a more efficient and convenient way of managing access.
In addition, these type of systems are able to provide better tracking and monitoring of individuals as they move throughout the building. This feature is essential in the event of an incident or emergency, as it can help identify the people and entities who were present at the particular time.
In conclusion, facial recognition access control systems are becoming more popular as they are more capable and provides a higher level of security compared to traditional methods. They are also convenient and can be integrated with other security systems, making them ideal for organizations of all sizes and demands. By adopting facial recognition access control systems, organizations can further enhance their security and efficiency, and obtain a convenient method of managing access for employees.
