Advanced biometric facial verification

Tired of unauthorized access?

Traditional access control solutions fall short.

Keys, cards, and codes are convenient -- but they can be lost, shared, or stolen. And fingerprint sensors may be secure, but they just weren't made for the dirt and dust of a real construction site.

SmartBarrel fixes all of that.

AI-powered facial verification ensures only authorized workers get access to your site. And SmartBarrel's rugged, weatherproof design ensures that it works in any condition -- rain, shine, or grime.
