On May 7, Okura released the "HESTA Security Gate," an entry and exit control system equipped with a contactless temperature sensor.
It is a system that can speedily carry out simultaneous temperature measurement of multiple people and control access without contact at places where people gather such as transport facilities, including stations and airports, and offices/schools/commercial facilities/medical institutions. It says that it hopes that it will become a solution to prevent infections such as COVID-19.
As facial recognition while masks are worn and recording recognition data are possible, compared to fingerprint recognition, etc., contactless entry control and attendance control are possible. It is equipped with high-performance thermography and its temperature accuracy is ±0.2 degrees. A type that links with gates is also available and notifies with light and sound when it senses abnormalities.
As it can record 30,000 visitors' worth of data, it is said to be able to be used for verifications such as secondary infection. There is a lineup of an independent type that comes with facial recognition and a temperature sensor as well as a gate type in which the device is embedded, and the gate type comes in a model that makes use of acrylic and one that makes use of aluminum alloy (all can be priced at the retailer's own discretion).
