SmartMetric incorporates biometrics into multifunctional ID and access control card

January 8, 2015 - 

SmartMetric announced it has incorporated its miniature biometric technology into an advanced multifunctional identity and access control card.

Using its advanced electronic engineering, SmartMetric has developed an identity card that is the size of a credit card.

Inside, the card contains a small, fully functional fingerprint reader that is used to activate its visual display as well as a short and long range radio frequency transmitter.

The identity card also incorporates a standard smart card format so that it can be used for visual identification verification and entry point and door access as well as to gain secure access to a corporate network.

SmartMetric president and CEO Chaya Hendrick said SmartMetric is excited to be able to improve security for office buildings and campuses around the world as well as to provide a multifunctional biometric solution that can be used in defending big data.

“In our insecure world the demand for better ubiquitous security is at an all-time high,” said Hendrick.

Previously reported, SmartMetric revealed last August that it added a Cortex processor to its biometric controlled credit, debit and identity cards, which improves the speed of fingerprint processing and boosts power in undergoing a range of added processing functions.
