With the help of today’s most advanced security company, the property has successfully phased its reopening of amenities and common areas seamlessly for homeowners, strictly adhering to state and local guidelines, while minimizing the risk of exposure to Covid-19. To heighten the level of “contactless living” throughout the development, the latest facial recognition technology has been introduced, allowing residents to enjoy the benefits of personal authentication as they move around the property.
iDentyTech Solutions has been the security technology provider for Continuum since 2016 and has been at the forefront with implementing the most advanced security protocols and training for its public safety personnel. The Continuum is integrating iDentyTech’s Facial Recognition platform, using AXIS cameras, enabling residents to take advantage of iDentyTech’s in-motion facial recognition software capabilities. The cameras are installed at entry points to the property and for elevator control, allowing residents to be immediately authenticated and then taken directly to their floor without needing to push a button or specify which floor their apartment is located. Upon entering the building, a facial recognition terminal is also able to determine whether an individual is wearing a face mask, upon which it will automatically “authenticate” the resident.
