Enrolling with the Rock can be done in two ways:
Auto-enrollment is available in Single Factor Authentication (1FA) mode. Users will badge in as normal to enter the door. The Rock builds the user profile with each badge in by capturing quality facial biometrics. After about 4-5 badge ins over the course of a few days, the user will realize as they approach to badge in, the Rock will authenticate, and the door will unlock. When this occurs, the Rock has been able to capture quality facial biometrics to fuse with the badge number and create a user profile.
Manual enrollment is available at an enrollment station, usually at a location monitored by a security guard. The Rock is set to enrollment mode for the purpose of enrolling users. The user will be guided by the display icons that will allow the Rock to capture quality facial biometrics to fuse the user with their badge number to create the user profile. The process is one-time. Manual enrollment is ideal for organizations that require 2FA (face and badge) or installing Rocks where no badge reader is required.
It is important to recognize that
- profiles will be displayed in the Profiles section in the Alcatraz AI Admin Portal only when enrollment is successful. The Rock must be able to capture good quality images of the user. The user’s face must be visible and not obstructed by coverings.
- profiles associate a user’s badge number with their facial biometrics for the purposes of authentication. No personal identifiable information is stored.
- profiles are synced across all Rocks in the organization for authentication purposes. If a user does not have access to a space, the Access Control System (ACS) will not unlock the door.
- users can enroll with multiple badges and be assigned to one or multiple sites
