The Legislative Assembly of El Salvador has successfully implemented RecFaces’ Id-Guard biometrics system at the entrance of its building.

According to the company, Id-Guard instantly detects a person via facial recognition in a video stream and compares the data with archives in less than ten seconds.

Id-Guard responds to threats in real time and sends notifications about special events or violations to the operator. 

The company highlights that Id-Guard is a boxed solution which is installed on a ready-made video surveillance system.

The installation process takes minutes, while implementation takes a few days and the software is configured remotely.

Use in government

RecFaces says that it initially offered the Assembly to test Id-Guard in a demo version.

After the trial period, the El Salvadorean client decided to install the system on a permanent basis.

The main functions of Id-Guard for state institutions are list control, visitor tracking and archive search.

“Government entities choose ready-made software products specifically due to [their] ease of implementation and use, security and absence of failures,” said Maria Kazhuro, Business Development Manager in LATAM, RecFaces

“This is especially applied to innovative areas related to security and software for working with personal data, such as facial biometrics.”
