HID & Bio-key debut new biometric security solutions

HID Corp. and Bio-key International, are introducing advancements in biometric security with new solutions combining HID card and BIO-key biometric technologies.

The HID/Bio-key solution stores a unique identifier on the card, and uses a backend server to perform the final authentication. By placing the biometric templates on a centralized server, all authentications, permissions for authorization, and security logging and monitoring can be easily handled. If a card is lost or stolen, a new card can be generated without doing a new biometric enrollment.

NextgenID introduces BioAxs 9800

NextgenID Ltd. introduces BioAxs 9800, a biometric face and fingerprint recognition access control system.

As a user approaches a door secured with a BioAxs 9800, they identify themselves to the system by either entering a pin code or via proximity card or magnetic swipe card. Once the user is identified, they are allowed to enter the facility.

The BioAxs 9800 is available in flush mount or surface mount designs.

IR Systems features HandReader

IR Recognition Systems new HandReader hand geometry readers now are fully integrated with HID’s iClass read/write contactless smart cards.

Providing a combination of the best of smart cards and biometrics, the IR Recognition Systems solution provides dual authentication by requesting both the right card and right person.

An iClass contactless smart card reader comes embedded into the IR Recognition Systems HandReader.

A plastic cardholder is affixed to the side of the unit, enabling single hand operation.

Recognition Source announces RS485 protocol

Recognition Source announces the completion of software for an open protocol RS485 interconnect between its panel interface modules and every brand of hardware and software platform using hand-geometry readers.

The software now allows a connection between RS485 bus and Wyreless Access Panel Interface Modules.

The connection to RS485 bus allows door controls to increase to 16 from two, while decreasing the number of wall-mounted boxes to one from eight.

AuthenTec unveils biometric fingerprint slide sensor for wireless devices

AuthenTec is introducing the new EntréPadT AES2500, a fingerprint slide sensor featuring TruePrint Technology.

The AES2500 is designed to fit most wireless devices, and is based on AuthenTec’s patented subsurface TruePrint Technology. This allows fingerprints to be read below the surface of the skin, thereby eliminating any acquisition or recognition failures relating to contamination such as dirt, grime, dry skin or excessive moisture - issues that are problematic with surface imaging fingerprint sensors.

IEI’s BioRead fingerprint access control system integrates biometric enro

IEI’s new Secured Series BioRead fingerprint access control system integrates both access control and biometric enrollment software. For end-users and dealers, this eliminates the hassle of launching multiple software applications to program and manage a PC based biometric access control system.

The BioRead fingerprint system features BioMatch technology. Up to four fingerprint templates for each user are stored on a contact-less Mifare Smart Card. The reader looks to match the presented fingerprint to a template on the Smart Card before permitting entry.

IR Recognition debuts HandKey II

IR Recognition Systems HandKey II access control readers and HandPunch time and attendance terminals support BioAPI, the widely available and accepted application program interface that serves as a “plug-and-play” standard for biometric technologies. RSI is the first hand geometry vendor to offer BioAPI support.
