When a person enters any location in your power utility, there are compliance, security, and safety risks that enter with them—unless you stop them at the gate. The Gatekeeper Platform does just that. A powerful risk-reduction solution for power utilities, Gatekeeper includes all the hardware, software, and support you need to enforce your physical-entry requirements at any door or gate across your enterprise.

Gatekeeper Facial Recognition

Facial recognition significantly improves the accuracy of your utility’s identity validation. Compared to manual entry logs and non-bio-identifier tools, facial recognition is more reliable in result accuracy. It’s also less likely to be scammed. Where some identity-validation solutions can be easily gamed (think contractors passing QR codes or escorts passing badges at turnstiles), a bio-identifier like facial recognition eliminates this risk via unique identifier validation.

Gatekeeper takes it a step further and actively enforces your entry requirements: NERC/CIP visitor-control, OSHA, corporate safety, and security policies—any requirement for entering into any physical space. Think corporate HQ, generation sites, unmanned facilities, PSPs, and pop-up contractor entry gates—anywhere a Gatekeeper kiosk appliance or mobile kiosk is used.

With facial recognition, you know they are who they say they are. Where QR codes, badges, and manual entry processes can be passed among visitors or workers, facial recognition eliminates this safety, security, and compliance risk and validates with much higher accuracy.
