Face ID 3 New Firmware

Monday, August 25, 2014 TimeTec 0 Comments

Previously, our Face ID terminal camera will automatically perform facial identification during the verification process and or in the situation when users can be detected within the vicinity of the terminal.

Responding to our customers’ feedback, our R&D team have come out with a new firmware enabling users the option to select whether they want the terminal to automatically perform face identification.

You can download the latest face ID 3 firmware here.

New Feature

In addition to that, we have also come up with a new feature for Face ID 3. This feature makes it compulsory for users to select any status key on the screen of the terminal (i.e. Check-in, OT-out, etc.) before switching on the camera for verification.

Go to Menu > System > Log Settings > Limit Face > Select either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

If ‘Yes’ is selected, users must press the status key before verification in order for the camera function to be activated.

If ‘No’ is selected, the camera will automatically scan the users even though they are just merely passing by. However, this function will speed up the verification process as you do not need to press any key before verification.
