OARO has expanded its physical access control system, OARO ACCESS®, to include body temperature screening. The new optional feature can detect individuals exhibiting a fever, the primary symptom of viral infections such as the novel coronavirus. First deployed during the SARS outbreak of 2003, temperature screening has been widely used across Asia in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is currently in high demand globally. OARO ACCESS® uses facial recognition and Blockchain Identity Management to secure restricted areas. Multiple security checks are performed in under two seconds as individuals approach the access point. OARO ACCESS® module will be able to analyse trends over time, enabling predictive analytics to improve workplace health and safety measures. The system uses advanced encryption to comply with global data privacy laws.
