COVID-19 access control system to verify Green Pass holders

Pangea is launching a new access control solution which will enable enterprises and businesses to automatically determine that their workers and visitors hold a valid COVID-19 immunity passport ('Green Pass') when they pass through monitoring stations at the entrance to offices or businesses. Beyond businesses and organisations, the new system is earmarked for malls, shopping areas, as well as restaurants and cinemas that monitor the entry to their premises.

The access control system is launched following the introduction in Israel and in other countries of the 'Green Pass', which is given to any person who has been vaccinated for COVID-19 or recovered from COVID-19.

The Green Pass serves as a mandatory entry permit to certain places according to each country’s regulations. With the easing of Israel’s third national coronavirus lockdown, most businesses and activities have become accessible to holders of the Green Pass. Israel has already vaccinated more than 5.1 million people out of a total population or approximately 9.3 million.

Other countries are also moving forward with immunity passport programs. The EU is looking at introducing a digital document showing a travelers’ current COVID-19 status. China launched a digital health certificate for its 1.3 billion citizens that shows the holder's vaccine status and virus test results. Denmark and Sweden are also looking at launching health passports soon.

Pangea’s COVID-19 access control system can quickly verify that a Green Pass is valid, and that the employee or visitor to the premises is the correct holder. The system conducts a facial recognition of the employee at the entrance to the premises and reads the QR code of the Green Pass of the employee or visitor. Once the dual-stage process is completed, the system allows or blocks entry to the person who presented the valid or expired Green Pass. The solution can connect to an organization’s licensed database including pictures of all the employees.

Asaf Kaminer, Executive Vice President at Pangea, noted: “Large organisations such as banks and insurance companies, that employ hundreds and even thousands of workers have to let employees enter the offices while ensuring the health of all of the employees and visitors.

"Companies’ managements find it exceedingly difficult to monitor daily the vaccination status of so many employees, but our new automated system will help managements cope with this challenge and help countries over the globe open up their economies in a safe manner.”
