Cardholder's Photo Recall

Cardholder's Photo Recall

Photo Recall

Built into the software is the ability to be able to show a card holder's photograph whenever access is granted or denied. The photograph will display on-screen and this can be assigned to all, or selected readers on the system. This is useful for visually confirming the identity of a cardholder as they enter a building - allowing an operator to check the credential is being used by the correct person.
