Symmetry Access Control integrates with SAFR SCAN facial authentication reader

Hawthorne, CA, March 22, 2023 – AMAG Technology, an Allied Universal® Company, announces its Symmetry™ Access Control software now integrates with RealNetworks, LLC SAFR SCAN™ facial authentication reader to provide seamless and frictionless access to doors.

The touchless facial reader, integrated with Symmetry, quickly scans faces to determine if an individual is allowed access to a door and authenticates up to 30 people per minute. SAFR SCAN’s facial detection technology is 99.9 percent accurate and uses anti-spoofing technology to ensure accurate identification. The integration provides a secure and reliable solution that is ideal for both indoors and outdoors in any lighting and environment.

The server-to-server integration between Symmetry Access Control and SAFR SCAN is transparent to the user. All data between the two systems automatically syncs providing a seamless and reliable solution. Cardholder data in Symmetry automatically transfers to the SAFR system. Users can easily enroll themselves in seconds.

  • Tailgating reported with real-time alerts in Symmetry
  • Real-time reporting and auditing help meet compliance requirements
  • Unbiased facial characteristics distinguish between skin tones
  • Easily works with masks
  • Operates with Symmetry M2150 and Symmetry M4000 Controllers with OSDP

“We are excited to offer an integration that provides seamless, dual-authentication for our customers with SAFR SCAN,” said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Product Management, Jonathan Moore. “The facial detection and authentication technology allows users to quickly and securely access doors in any environment when used with Symmetry Access Control.”

When used with Symmetry Mobile, AMAG’s mobile credential management platform, enrollment is frictionless. Users can take their own photo and when approved by the security team it will automatically synchronize into the SAFR SCAN database.

“AMAG’s vision to constantly enhance the customer experience with technologically advanced solutions is perfectly aligned with what SCAN was designed to provide with a facial authentication reader,” said President of SAFR from RealNetworks, Paul DiPeso.  “We’re thrilled with the partnership between AMAG and SAFR.”
