How Face Mask Detection Systems Work

Face Mask Detection Systems use AI Deep Learning Algorithms that detect the wearing of face masks in real-time video streams.  The System’s provide real time alerts and voice prompts when an individual is seen and classified, either as ‘wearing a mask’ or flagged as ‘not wearing a mask’. 

Mask Screening Cameras

Many solutions offer ‘out of the box’ technology for quick and easy deployment to help make buildings COVID-19 secure. Mask screening cameras can be installed standalone camera systems or connect to an access control system to allow or deny entry based on whether a person is wearing a face mask or not.

Where can Face Mask Detection Systems be used?

Retail – Retailers need to monitor the wearing of masks amongst other requirements.  Face Mask Detection systems offer a quick and easy solution to Retailers to control individuals from entering their premises without wearing a facemask.

Corporate Buildings – Many office buildings remain open and many will soon welcome employees back to work.  Face mask detection can be used to in this scenario to establish and maintain a safe working environment for everyone.  Face Mask Detection Systems can often be deployed in combination with Access Control and Facial Recognition systems that use the employee database information to match an employee at an entrance or other chosen area in the building.  The Face Mask Detection Systems can also provide a useful solution to Visitor Management and Track & Trace.

Gyms & Leisure – Face Mask Detection Systems can be used very effectively in this environment.  Often, these types of premises have a gate or turnstile entry system in place and the addition of Face Mask Detection Systems will compliment any existing solution or provide new ‘peace of mind’ controls for staff, members and visitors alike.

Hospitality – Bars, Restaurants and Hotels have regulations to adhere to as they welcome back members of the public.  When checking in, moving around or interacting with staff, visitors will be required to wear a face mask and comply with rules enforced in this setting.  Face Mask Detection Systems provide a quick and easy solution for the Hospitality Sector.

Healthcare Settings – Hospital, Clinics, Dentists, Pharmacies and other Healthcare providers especially recognize the importance of wearing a Face Mask.  Face Mask Detection Systems allow for monitoring of staff, patients and visitors in these premises.
