The integration of the FaceStation F2-DB into the TouchStar’s time and attendance hardware portfolio follows a successful period of development and coincides with the company’s recent brand refresh. Lynden Jones, Managing Director at TouchStar ATC comments, “We are delighted to announce the addition of the FaceStation F2 to our product portfolio with Suprema already well known for delivering new and innovative identification and authentication solutions to the market. The launch of this fantastic device has also provided us with an excellent platform to introduce our new refreshed brand, a fresh light blue colour scheme which reflects the new innovative developments that we are now able to promote. We believe that the FaceStation is real game changer, it delivers exceptional authentication accuracy and anti-spoofing performance by the fusion of visual and infrared face recognition technology. With the demand for contactless devices on the rise, it provides the mission critical identity management and health and safety capabilities that businesses need today to get employees back into the workplace.”   

Designed to be simple and intuitive, the FaceStation drives operational efficiencies, automating key workforce management processes and reducing costs. Not only does it provide a secure and compliant working environment, but it also provides real time management visibility.

The FaceStation is suitable for use across a number of sectors and environments, from Healthcare and Education, through to Retail, Warehousing and Commercial. With an increased distance range, it provides improved user convenience. Its 7” LCD screen and walkthrough face recognition means users no longer have to stand still and fit faces to a predefined area.
