Liberty Door Systems recently completed an amazing, yet unique project for a homeowner constructing a penthouse suite in Center City Philadelphia at Two Liberty Plaza.

The owner of this penthouse wanted a door that would automatically open when he stepped off the elevators to his penthouse. We partnered up with a company called FST who specializes in facial recognition. A user’s face is identified in motion, and granted seamless access to buildings and facilities – in this instance, the door to his new penthouse.

The area to the left and the right of the door have HD cameras that scan the lobby area for movement. When the cameras recognize a face in the database the doors will unlock and automatically open. As a back up and for people not in the database who are still allowed to enter the penthouse we installed a standalone card reader/keypad.
