Kaba Access and Data Systems has launched its new Standalone Identity Access Management System – the AD102 — which now supports fingerprint biometrics.
According to the company, the new two-piece system is not networked and supports up to two entry points with a single reader. Part of the company’s I.AM Series Identity Access Management product line, the biometric access control application is embedded in the system.
“The AD102 Kit is the perfect solution for residential or commercial applications, including doors, gates, garages, warehouses, gun safes, jewelry cabinets, data rooms, remote sites, and second properties,” Logan Stewart, product manager Kaba ADS Americas said. “And, even though the system is designed to accommodate smaller scale usage, the AD102 Kit can migrate to work with an AM524 or AM300 Controller and its door unit, creating a full featured web-based system.”
Reported previously, the Kaba Group, the Swiss security firm behind Kaba Access and Data Systems launched a new division last year to combine sales and support operations throughout the Americas.
According to a recently published report on the electronic access control market – in which Kaba is a player — by 2017, the total market will reach $16.3 billion, at a 7% CAGR. Biometric technologies are a major contributor to this growth.
