The BluBØX Person Reader

The Person Reader is a cutting-edge device that serves as an all-in-one intelligent reader, intercom, camera, and visitor entry system. It offers multiple models, including the PR-S, PR-M3, PR-LT3 & PR-DDE-LT3, PR-XLT3 & PR-DDE-XLT3, PR-2XLT3 & PR-DDE-2XLT3, with either a touchscreen or mechanical keypad.

The Person Reader supports low and high frequency HID Prox, MiFARE CSN, HID Bluetooth, 2-way stereo audio, and SIP communication, making it versatile and easy to use. With a 2D 2 MP color camera and a 3D IR depth camera, it can identify individuals through their biometrics, name, card, Bluetooth credential, bar or QR code, PIN, and/or cloud credential.

The Person Reader is not only versatile but also accurate and robust, as it utilizes two biometrics – face and voice – for enhanced security and convenience. Overall, the Person Reader is a powerful and reliable solution for efficient and secure access control.

The Person Reader is simple and fast to use, with no need for an enrollment procedure. It will recognize you on your first visit, and continuously learn your appearance over time. As an intercom, it is a two-way audio/video communication device that is SIP-based, and can integrate seamlessly with most intercom systems.

Visitors can use the Person Reader as a self-check-in station, by finding their pre-registered record by name, bar or QR code. The Person Reader can also read and assign credentials, take photos, and check-in and announce visitors. It can operate in both attended or unattended modes.

Lastly, as a camera, it can associate a photo or video with every entry attempt and future versions will include video streaming to third-party video recorders and video and audio analytics. The Person Reader offers unparalleled functionality, and competes with much less capable identity and entry devices.
