Our first generation of face recognition access control appliance, named FaceVACS-Sentry, was first launched in 2005. It was a real breakthrough back then. A true turnkey solution to provide face recognition access control out of the box was unseen before the launch of FaceVACS-Sentry. FaceVACS-Sentinel replaced FaceVACS-Sentry in 2008 to provide 1:N identification on top of 1:1 verification, and provide compensation lighting to make the device easier to deploy and provide better recognition accuracy. For many years, FaceVACS-Sentinel is still the top choice of clients who place security, reliability, scalability and manageability in first place. A long impressive list of users from Airports, Bank Data Centres, Real Estate, and Gambling Management industry is testimonial of the outstanding value and reliability of Sentry device.

The device is now re-branded as FaceSentry™ to mark our relentless pursuit for excellent quality of face recognition appliance produced by iWT to enter another new stage.

We build FaceSentry around the world’s leading face recognition algorithm FaceVACS® from Cognitec. A list of new features were introduced to maximize the accuracy and reliability of the system, such as fully embedded Linux system with web service, full TCP/IP stack, comprehensive Wiegand protocol support, Master-Slave data synchronization algorithm to achieve one simple aim: manageable security with connectivity & scalability.

Re-designed front panel, powered by TI OMAP, a true self-sustained embedded platform, to provide robust & high quality image capture that leads to better recognition accuracy. Besides, as front panel connects to Recognition Controller via standard Ethernet, location of Controller will not longer be limited to vicinity of front panel, but far away dedicated ELV room for better security.

Portrait camera and 4.3” LCD provides ultra-wide coverage of different heights of users. The front panel device supports rich media display and Unicode characters display, besides it is a touch screen, developers have more possibility to build sophisticated application before or after the user authentication.
