THE NEW ISGUS IT 8210 FACE RECOGNITION TERMINAL Fast and reliable identification check for time bookings and all functions that are available on the time recording terminal IT 8210 thanks to individual role profiles. The IT 8210 Face Recognition can do it! With three cameras, two integrated full HD cameras and one infrared camera for life detection, the IT 8210 terminals identifies authorised users absolutely safely and reliably. No ID card is required for this. The face field detection is activated via an integrated motion detector and identifies the user with captivating reliability and at a speed of less than 0.8 seconds. Even when a person is wearing a Covid protection mask, the face field recognition with the IT 8210 FR is working optimally. The decisive values for the practical suitability of any biometric recognition are the rate of false acceptance, which is 1:1,000,000, and the rate of correct recognition. With the ISGUS solution, this is 99.76%. Both parameters are excellent for the camera module used by ISGUS. Compared to different manufacturers, where the enrolment takes places at the device itself, the enrolment of the biometric data at ISGUS takes places via a separate enrolment kit. This allows our customers to record the biometric data of their employees conveniently in the office. Recognition through digital fingerprint As with facial field recognition, each person‘s fingerprint is unique and does not change over the course of a lifetime. With the use of biometric time and attendance terminals, with facial field recognition and/or fingerprint identification, the security of your employees‘ identification is significantly increased.

CORPORATE SECURITY Probably the most highly regarded innovation is the web-based ZEUS® Security Monitor... The annual conferences for the consultants of the ISGUS Group are traditionally the platform where trends and innovations of the ISGUS development are introduced. 2021, this part of the event was all about corporate security. Summarised, the ISGUS portfolio in the field of access control and security will be extended through multiple innovations: ZEUS® Security Monitor Probably the most highly regarded innovation is the web-based ZEUS® Security Monitor. Even in the standard version, data points for doors, windows, lock bolts, motorised latches, cameras as well as links can be freely positioned on graphics such as floor plans. Data points are linked to the sensors and actuators of ZEUS® Access Control to visualize events or to remotely control actions such as the opening of doors. Access events are categorised. For each event type, the associated reactions are clearly defined. These may include, for instance, the display of action catalogues or the notification of certain persons by e-mail or push notification. Thus, the ZEUS® Security Monitor fulfils essential functions of a security control station. Elements of the Security Monitor frequently required by the user, like access areas, camera pictures, catalogue of measures and control elements can be clearly arranged and called up on customizable dashboards. ZEUS® smartID Use the ISGUS app ZEUS® smartID to open doors, gates and barriers with your smartphone via Bluetooth from distances up to 10 metres and without expensive long-range technology. All ISGUS readers for access control and of the IT series for time recording are available with Bluetooth from now on. However, the devices can still be operated with the secured proximity procedure MifareDESFire, but work in conjunction with ZEUS® smartID via a secure Bluetooth connection.

ISGUS WANTS TO HELP! It was not so long ago that we could not have imagined a situation in Europe like the one we are experiencing with the Ukraine conflict... Now, however, we have to realise that the reality is unfortunately different. Every day we are confronted with new images and news that do not fit at all into our usual environment. The ISGUS Group has therefore decided to make a monetary donation. In doing so, we also want to make a small contribution to alleviate the suffering of the people in Ukraine and the refugees. We have transferred this amount to the „Aktionsbündnis Katastrophenhilfe“. This alliance brings together the major aid organisations. This ensures that the money reaches the region and those in need. In addition, we are still examining the possibilities of how we can help incoming refugees in our region. #standwithukraine 7 ISGUS NEWS Edition 42 2022 THE NEWNORMAL ISGUS WA TS TO HELP!

But flexible working time models have been an important aspect for a high employer attractiveness before corona. The current pandemic shows, it is decisive to quickly react to arising situations during a crisis and to be able to adapt. Companies that improve their adaptability with hybrid corporate and working time models will be able to react to changing conditions fast and flexible in the future.

HEALTHCARE SYSTEM: WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT IN TIMES OF COVID-19 COVID-19 STAFF SCHEDULING HEALTHCARE SYSTEM DIGITIZATION PROZESS The healthcare system plays an essential role during the pandemic, but the German healthcare system is considered to be a construction site with a great need for action… The Covid-19 pandemic is still omnipresent and is accelerating the digitization process in almost all sectors. The healthcare sector has a central role to play during the pandemic, but the German healthcare system is considered a construction site with a great need for action. Improved staffing and more progress in digitization are considered the greatest challenges. Lack of coordination between the actors involved and little transparency are the order of the day in many cases. Particularly during the pandemic, it would have been essential to would have been essential to counter these challenges with intelligent with intelligent workforce management. Staff planning, responding to understaffing and improving the working conditions of healthcare workers at the same time are competing goals that can no longer be achieved without digital solutions like ZEUS® Workforce Management. With ZEUS® Workforce Management, stationary and mobile time recording interact optimally with ZEUS® Time and Attendance and Staff Scheduling.

THE FUTURE OF LEARNING IS HYBRID KNOW-HOW ISGUS PARTNER NEW FUNCTIONS WEBINAR SESSIONS The ZEUS® hardware and software solutions from ISGUS are constantly being enhanced and extended by additional software modules and new functions, thus requiring for comprehensive know-how and ongoing further training on the part of the ISGUS partners‘ commercial and technical staff... Before the Corona pandemic, transfer of ZEUS® know-how took place either in the form of regular in-person training sessions at the ISGUS training centre in Villingen-Schwenningen or on-site at our partners’ premises. Since Covid-19, however, things have changed tremendously. As in all areas of private and business life during the pandemic, ISGUS sales and technical training was mainly conducted virtually in the form of webinar sessions. This worked out better than initially expected thanks to a great selection of excellent online meeting tools that have been mushrooming since the beginning of the pandemic. For both national and international business, online meetings and virtual training sessions have become indispensable and have largely contributed to keeping the business running successfully during the Corona pandemic – however, this form of training could not replace the personal touch of face-to-face meetings, which was and is greatly missed by all training participants. Today, with the end of Corona in sight and most countries gradually returning to normality, ISGUS is pleased to once again welcome training participants from home and abroad to the „ISGUS Academy“ in Villingen-Schwenningen. However, the pandemic has also shown us that the future definitely belongs to hybrid training concepts combining classroom training with virtual learning. This allows participants who for some reason cannot be physically present to be virtually connected via a platform and thus be able to participate in the training “remotely” from anywhere in the world. How well this works could be recently experienced at a training course for the ISGUS partner AXON BUSINESS SYSTEMS (United Arab Emirates) held in Dubai, where additional staff members were remotely connected from Abu Dhabi. 10 THE FUTURE OF LEARNING IS HYBRID
