Technology companies continue to develop products and services tailored to the new identity requirements associated with pandemic mitigation measures. A pair of new biometric devices for physical access control have added fever detection capabilities, while free digital identity verification is being offered to organizations to help support the reduction of coronavirus transmission risk.

Physical access systems

The physical access system with biometric facial recognition from Oaro now includes an option for body temperature screening to meet global demand for temperature screening controls.

Oaro Access was launched in 2019, and combines facial biometrics and blockchain identity management to secure restricted areas. It performs multiple security checks in less than two seconds as the individual approaches the access point, according to the announcement.

The new feature includes analysis of trends over time for predictive analytics to improve workplace health and safety measures, a capability not present in most other temperature screening systems, the company says. Advanced encryption protects data to comply with global privacy laws.

“OARO shifted our operations to focus on building a protype solution when the COVID-19 pandemic began a few weeks ago. We knew that we could help, so we quickly sought investor and Board support to divert our best technical resources immediately to support the global efforts fighting COVID-19,” says Joel Leetzow, OARO’s President and CEO.

Oaro offers its access control technology for airports, financial service companies, government voting applications, and sporting venues. The company’s Chief Security Officer Daniel Faria is an advisor to the ICAO.

ZKTeco USA has launched a new Access Control Reader to combine fever detection with palm-vein and facial biometrics that work can identify individuals wearing surgical masks, the company has announced.

The new Speedface model SFP1008-WP+ provides 100 percent hands-free and hygienic door access, the company says, and can read body temperature to within 0.6 degrees Fahrenheit for a person up to two feet away. If a fever is detected, or if a mask is not detected, door access can be denied. Faces can be recognized up to eight feet away.

The terminal is IP68-rated and IK04 vandal resistant for indoor or outdoor use, and can store and match up to 50,000 (5) faces and 5,000 (5) palm templates with matching speed of less than 0.5 (5) seconds. The SFP1008-WP+ also operates in total darkness or bright sunlight up to 50,000 (5) Lux.

Free identity verification service

Veriff is responding to the outbreak with a pledge to provide 1 million free identity verifications to help ensure trust will limiting face to face interactions to a minimum. The company identifies as possible beneficiaries universities, marketplaces for volunteers helping people in need, and registries for fake accounts or quarantine data, as well as digital healthcare providers and organizations combating fake news.

“We decided to help nonprofits and foundations that could benefit from our technology as they are working hard despite the challenges presented by the pandemic and finding solutions to put a stop to it,” Veriff Founder and CEO Kaarel Kotkas explains. “We’re focusing on solutions and making different services accessible from distance. We are a force of good and would like to make a difference.”

The program will run for non-profits and foundations through the end of June.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).
