Identifying Individual Users Using QR Codes

NoahFace supports identifying individual users using QR Codes, while the majority of users are identified using facial recognition. This is usually used when:

  • There are individuals who do not want to consent to the use of facial recognition.
  • There are individuals that are difficult to differentiate using facial recognition, such as twins or close siblings.

If you want to identify all users using QR Codes, see: Identifying All Users Using QR Codes instead.


To enable QR Code identification on your NoahFace kiosks, create a second Access Rule:

Set an appropriate Rule Name and optionally set any Site or Access Point restrictions:

Set Identification Required to "QR Code" and optionally set any Day or Time restrictions:

Finally, list the Rule Members that you want to provide access to:

Printing QR Codes

You then need to print a QR Code for each user containing their unique User Number (eg: Employee Number, Member Number), ideally as a sticker they can attach to their access card. You can use any 3rd party QR Code generation software, as long as it can generate "text" type QR Codes. Alternatively, you can print QR Codes of employee vCards which are matched to users using their mobile Phone Number.

Day to Day Usage

Users do not need to register - when they present at the NoahFace kiosk, they simply hold up their QR Code to the iPad camera to identify themselves.

All of the interactive features of NoahFace behave exactly the same regardless of whether users are identified using facial recognition or QR Codes. For example you can:

  • Use any type of screen (eg: Clock In/Out, Task Tracking, Job Tracking, Compliance).
  • Collect data on clock in (eg: Projects, Customers, Work Types) or clock out (eg: Comments, Tips, Sentiment).
  • Use manual or no touch clocking.

When a user is identified using a QR Code, you will see the QR Code as the event photo:

If users have previously consented to the use of facial recognition their face may still be recognised as they are presenting their QR Code. You can stop this from happening as follows: Removing a User's Consent to use Facial Recognition.
