Entertech is Suprema’s operating partner for the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom , Ireland and Puerto Rico.
Specifically, under the new deal, Entertech’s BioConect application will be integrated with ProdataKey’s smartaccess platform to sync users between the access control panel and the biometric template.
“ProdataKey’s IP based smartaccess platform is the perfect complement to Suprema’s ultra-secure biometric identity product line,” Evan Tree, CEO of ProdataKey said. “Combining our technology with Suprema biometric products and the BioConnect application means we can offer a fully integrated, end-to-end solution with unparalleled security, while enhancing ease of use and reducing cost of ownership with our long-range, mesh wireless access control platform.”
“Partnering with ProdataKey is a strategic step for us,” Rob Douglas, CEO of Entertech said. “ProdataKey is the only company offering a long-range mesh wireless network of IP devices that can control up to 1,000 doors and we believe their integration of BioConnect and Suprema biometric devices takes Entertech Systems further into the growing wireless market.”
ProdataKey says it’s the first wireless commercial access control platform on the market. It uses a self-healing wireless mesh platform and an open architecture that will accept any standard Wiegand input and requires no dedicated PC.
“Fundamentally, both companies have like-minded missions – to overcome the major obstacles to mainstream adoption of security and biometric technologies,” Douglas said. “Smartaccess provides substantial savings to both end user and integrator, and allows them to scale a system to cover virtually any size of structure or campus of structures, along with outbuildings and gates. And they can do it all without installing long cable runs or digging trenches.”
