CyberLink’s FaceMe® Brings Best-in-Class Facial Recognition to Bitkey’s Smart Office Platform, “workhub”

Bitkey integrated its cutting-edge workhub solution into the Tokyo Square Garden office tower, allowing each employee and visitor to experience the future of contactless smart offices

TAIPEI, TAIWAN — December 07, 2021 —CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a pioneer in AI and facial recognition technologies, today announced that its FaceMe® facial recognition solution has been successfully implemented by bitkey Inc. into “workhub,” a connected smart office platform. Workhub now integrates AI and facial recognition, enabling a seamless, contactless experience in the workplace. To the satisfaction of office tenants and visitors, workhub is now operational at the Tokyo Square Garden building complex and also showcased at bitkey’s headquarters.

Bitkey, founded in 2018, is a Japanese technology company that provides connected solutions for home, workspaces, and recreational facilities through its respective “homehub,” “workhub,” and “exphub” platforms. As of September 2021, bitkey was the #1 smart lock provider in the Japanese domestic market.

Bitkey’s workhub connected platform will shape the future of smart office connectivity. In addition to providing a complete access control solution that supports multiple authentication methods – IC cards, QR codes, and facial recognition, workhub uses AI-powered connected services to offer office workers a comprehensive, user-friendly experience.

Bitkey’s workhub includes three main features:

Self-Service, Contactless Reception for Visitors 

When an employee fills out the online form to invite visitors to the office, workhub sends them  invitation emails with a QR code that they will scan at a kiosk located at the entrance of the building, at the agreed-upon time. Upon finding the record corresponding to this QR code, visitors are asked to enroll their face in the system to enable facial recognition. Then they can proceed to their assigned meeting room, using their registered face to unlock doors, access elevators, and guide them to their hosts, all in one convenient, streamlined experience.

Access to Assigned Booths and Meeting Rooms
