Precise has successfully integrated its product for access to facilities with Telcred Access Manager, a cloud-based access control system supporting open hardware from Axis Communications and other providers. Zynka Group, a leading provider of products for BIM (Building Information Management) and “Digital Twins” will deploy the solution at their headquarters in Gothenburg.
“The integration of our identification software for seamless access to facilities with Telcred’s open platform for access control reflects our strategy to partner with modern and innovative platform providers. We are looking forward to continuing working with Telcred, Axis and Zynka as we proceed on our growth journey within the Digital Identity area”, says Precise CEO Stefan K. Persson.
Precise YOUNiQ integrates face recognition with access control systems to provide convenient and secure access to facilities. The technology behind the product is based on artificial intelligence that confirms the individual's identity through its unique facial features. Using Telcred’s API for integration with external systems, Precise has successfully integrated the product with Telcred Access Manager, a cloud-based access control software engine utilizing IP-connected door controllers from Axis Communications.
“Face recognition as a credential technology combines high security with unrivalled convenience. The integration effort with Precise YOUNiQ was trivial which illustrates the strength and possibilities of truly open platforms. We see many potential applications for this technology, and we think it will become increasingly adopted in access control systems over the next few years”, says Telcred CEO Carlo Pompili.
Zynka Group AB will be the first customer to use Precise YOUNiQ via Telcred’s access control platform. Axis Communications will provide the door controllers, which connect directly to the Telcred cloud-service over IP. Integrated with Telcred, Zynka also provides an access management solution for customers of their digital buildings platform.
“An open access management solution with a single API endpoint for integration is vital to our strategy to deliver value-adding digital services throughout the building lifecycle. Telcred’s open cloud-service enables us to do exactly that already today, with an array of future possibilities. We are also convinced that face recognition as a method of granting access to spaces will be well received by our platform customers”, says Zynka CTO Daniel Månsson.
“This is what the world of open systems looks like and I think it’s also a glimpse of the future. I’m very proud of Axis contribution to this ongoing shift in the industry”, says Axis Eco-system Manager Björn Callenfors.
