I can see this in use in any health care area. By using facial recognition software, a user can easily log in and out just be moving into the view of the camera. With using a usb connection, almost any PC, tablet, notebook, etc. could be converted. Good news for administrators too is the integration with the Active Directory for monitoring network permissions as well. This gives a new meaning to a "face off". Busy health care workers are the victims of constant interruptions and and emergency responses. With this device, simply removing yourself from the view of the camera would sign the individual off the computer until they return to log on, thus confidential information exposure would be limited as well plus it maintains a record of every log on, which can be very helpful when a PC is shared by more than one individual.

“We are pleased to be adding the intelligent facial recognition of FastAccess to our Watchport cameras,” said Stephen Popovich, Vice President of Business Development at Digi. “We continue to see increased interest in biometrics as a seamless and transparent way to secure and monitor computers and workstations in a wide range of applications – from retail to healthcare environments. The intelligence of the FastAccess software to accurately recognize authorized users and eliminate passwords is a perfect fit with our high-performance cameras.”
- No More Unsecured, Unattended Computers: Computers instantly secure themselves when
users step away.
- Better User Productivity: Users can focus on their jobs rather than time-consuming and
frustrating processes of constantly entering passwords or other authentication procedures.
- Improved Access Control and Auditing: Provides an accurate audit of computer and network
access for business and regulatory compliance – a true audit log of who’s been at the computer and when.
- Simple Setup and Administration: Unlike other security and biometric solutions, no special
enrollment procedure is needed. Administrators can configure FastAccess locally or remotely
through Microsoft's Active Directory.
