Taiwanese biometrics and security company Aratek has launched TruFace, a biometric security offering for access control security aimed at increasing workforce efficiency.

With biometric access control, visitor management and time attendance tracking capabilities, TruFace suits institutions in industries such as education, government, healthcare, business, law enforcement, retail and hospitality.

“Our API and SDK make it super easy to integrate its applications with your security infrastructure, like video surveillance or alarm systems, plus HR management platforms like attendance tracking and payroll systems,” said Samuel Wu, Aratek vice president. “The Aratek TruFace provides painless biometric access control and attendance tracking that anyone can use almost out of the box, without the need for lengthy training or complicated set-up so you can enjoy better security and efficiency in no time.”

TruFace combines the company’s BA8300 facial recognition terminal with the TruFace Manager software platform. The BA8300 facial recognition terminal supports multi-factor authentication with fingerprint, RFID card, barcode and facial recognition.

“Users can gain access by having their faces, fingerprints or RFID cards scanned, or in combination modes, adding an additional layer of security to protected areas,” Wu said.

The TruFace Manager software gives administrators control over device management, device diagnostics, access control rule setting and attendance tracking. Its intuitive overview dashboard lets admins visualise performance metrics in clear reports.

Plus, with its mobile app for Android and iOS phones, employees can manage attendance remotely with features such as punching in and out, applying for leave, and generating attendance reports. This is said to offers businesses a reliable, secure and convenient way to monitor and bolster their security needs.

For more than 20 years, Aratek has been providing biometric products that help governments, schools, banks and other institutions become more secure and efficient. Products range from fingerprint scanners and facial recognition access control devices, all the way up to robust physical security systems and biometric software.
