FORXAI Secure Access (pronounced FOR-SIGH) enables automated, secure point-of-entry workflows that combine facial identification with mask detection, thermal temperature screening and tailgating. These workflows utilize an artificial intelligence (AI) rules-based engine designed for various types of government, education and healthcare organizations.
