Rahima Moosa Nursing College ditches finger-scanners for facial recognition
The Rahima Moosa Nursing College has replaced its biometrics and access cards with the use of facial recognition.
Vice-principal Jazmin Gassiep says they considered card- and fingerprint-reader options before opting for the zero-touch approach that facial recognition offers.
Speaking to Joanne Joseph, Gassiep says while listening to 702 on her way to work, she realised that they need innovative ways to deal with security once COVID-19 lands in the country.
It is not that much expensive than the normal biometrics and it links to your security system.Jazmin Gassiep, Vice principal - Rahima Moosa Nursing College
You don't have to come close to the camera, you can stand a meter away from the system and it will recognise you.Jazmin Gassiep, Vice principal - Rahima Moosa College School
