ZKAccess Releases BioCam300

ZKAccess, a provider of biometric and RFID solutions, is pleased to announce the release of its BioCam300. BioCam300 is a highly cost-effective and affordable IP-based stand-alone access control camera which combines long-range facial recognition, video surveillance and time & attendance, all in a single device. BioCam300 can operate stand-alone (no computer nor panel needed) for quick and easy installations requiring no special wiring, and can also be tied into any existing 3rd party Wiegand panel for greater security. BioCam300 unlocks doors upon positive face recognition once authorized users walk within 12 feet of it. Its built-in infra-red illuminators ensure accurate face recognition even in low-light conditions.

"Access Control is a very crowded, commoditized space these days,” noted Larry Reed, CEO, ZKAccess. “We find dealers are primarily challenged with preserving profit margins, differentiating their company and reducing training time on new products. BioCam300 addresses all these concerns since it’s in limited distribution and there are no competing products. BioCam300 installs no differently than any traditional keypad or card-based access control system. It connects directly to the door lock or any 3rd party Wiegand panel. BioCam300 also uses the same power and wiring as traditional systems. The only difference with Biocam300 is its face reader, which takes all of 30 seconds to learn and operate, so there’s practically no learning curve at all."

In addition to providing 100% hands-free door access, other features of the BioCam300 include:

  • 400 face capacity (will exceed 1,000 faces in next release);
  • 100K transactions storage;
  • Fast throughput with 1 - 2 seconds verification time;
  • Dual HD CMOS cameras with audio output and alarm output;  
  • 7” LCD display incorporated with the HD IP camera;
  • Access control with built-in relays for door locks and inputs for REX and door contact; and
  • HD IP video recording which supports a 32GB SD Card or external NVR.

This latest offering from ZKAccess represents a new security product category - long-range face recognition and access control.
