Dahua, Hikvision, ZKTeco Face Mask Detection Shootout

By Zach Segal, Published Jun 19, 2020, 09:40am EDT

Temperature tablets with face mask detection are one of the hottest trends in the current coronavirus driven market. But how well does face mask detection work?

We bought and tested tablet / stations from Dahua, Hikvision, and ZKTeco and shot them out side by side to see how they performed and where they failed.

Interestingly, we found 1 clear winner while the other two were very simple to fool. Inside this report, we look at the state of "AI" within these new security devices, showing where they worked and failed.
