Key features


3D face recognition technology scans the geometry of a human face, which is a unique biometric key that nobody can steal or forge.


It grants access to an authorized user as soon as he/she takes a look at the monitor and automatically logs off the computer when user leaves the controlled area or when an outsider appears


Artec Welcome is able to recognize a person in less than a second. Registration is just as easy. Constant surveillance and log history solve the problem of a “one-time log-in”.

Contactless biometrics

Doesn’t require tiresome identification procedures like recurrent fingerprints scans


Timeout sessions are not an issue anymore. Many PC users tend to extend timeout periods because they are annoyed by the constant necessity to identify themselves. You don’t have to spend time actively identifying yourself, Artec Welcome does this automatically, you can just concentrate on your work.

Artec welcome technology

Artec Welcome is a software development kit (SDK), which can be easily integrated into existing NAC solutions to grant secure access to corporate networks. Artec Welcome does not require any security hardware and supports wide range of 3D sensors. With Artec’s 3D face recognition technology and Artec Welcome SDK you can protect computers and networks from unauthorized access.

Existing security solutions cannot offer full protection, as, for instance, passwords can be lost, forged or exchanged, and keeping the passwords on sticky notes next to the PC is a common practice. 2D identification devices could be fooled with a photograph, fingerprints could be forged. All the access control devices usually require a one-time log-in, therefore, once access is granted, there is no guarantee that the right person is actually using the PC afterwards.

Supported hardware

Artec Welcome SDK is compatible with a wide range of laptops, ultrabooks, tablets and all-in-one PCs featuring major consumer 3D sensor Intel RealSense™

You can even use Artec Welcome SDK on old PCs by installing a stand-alone 3D-sensor
