The BluBØX Person Reader

The BluB0X Person Reader is an advanced, all-in-one intelligent device revolutionizing access control, intercom communication, visitor management, surveillance, and natural language interactions. It is available in multiple sizes, models and colors and comes equipped with a camera, touchscreen, microphone, and speakers for user interaction. This versatile device supports RFID, Bluetooth, NFC, QR Code and PIN credentials and 2-way stereo audio and SIP communication. It is equipped with a 2 MP color camera and IR depth camera, ensuring precise and reliable appearance and voice recognition and natural language communication.

The Person Reader supports the convenience of AnyID technology and excels in multi-factor authentication. It ensures robust, accurate, and hands-free access control, adapting to users’ appearances over time, eliminating the need for a distinct enrollment procedure. Simply look at the device, be recognized, and gain entry. The high-performance camera associates’ photos or videos with each entry attempt and can optionally employ advanced video and audio analytics for enhanced surveillance and verifiable proof of presence.

As an intercom, the Person Reader supports SIP-based two-way audio and video communication, seamlessly integrating with BluSKY for remote answering and control from any device. For visitor entry, it facilitates self-check-in at doors, gates, security desks, reception areas, or loading docks. Visitors can find pre-registered records via name or QR code, with the device reading and assigning credentials, taking photos, checking in, and announcing visitors.

A standout feature is its integration of advanced natural language processing (NLP) capabilities. Powered by an NVIDIA chipset, the Person Reader can run a full large-language model locally, enabling human-level interactions. Users can issue commands, ask questions, make requests, and receive summaries—all in natural language. It supports multiple languages and personalizes settings such as default floor selection and opting in or out of appearance and voice recognition, making it a highly versatile and accessible tool.

Key features include an intuitive user interface, cost-effectiveness, ease of use, rapid recognition, robust performance, and deep integration with BluSKY for seamless credential and access management. ADA compliant, it supports accessibility features ensuring inclusivity.

Applications range from doors, turnstiles, and elevators to commercial buildings, airports, server rooms, data centers, residential buildings, hospitals, schools, social services, and gyms. The Person Reader meets proof of presence requirements, ensures high security, and offers hands-free access and visitor management.
