FST Biometrics provides athletic club biometric access control and security solution

March 27, 2015 - 

Canadian social, recreation and athletic club, The Granite Club, has implemented FST Biometrics‘ access control and security system designed to allow freedom of movement for members and staff, while restricting access to authorized users only.

FST Biometrics’ IMID Access system uses a combination of biometrics data, enabling the club’s more than 10,000 members and employees to enter and exit access-restricted areas of the facility, including an athletic center, dining and meeting facilities and a children’s centre.

The Granite Club said it chose FST Biometrics because of the touch-free nature of IMID Access, which ensures that the user does not have to touch anything, whether it’s swiping a card, carrying a fob or punching in a code on a keypad.

Aside from being convenient, this feature is incredibly efficient in a high-use active community whose operations value health and hygienic best practices.

In addition to protecting access to key areas of the club, the IMID Access system has been installed in the children’s centre in order to provide the highest level of protection and security for members’ children.

“IMID Access is perfectly suited for a first-class facility such as The Granite Club, which requires the ultimate in secure access while ensuring freedom of movement for its members and staff,” said Aharon Zeevi Farkash, founder and CEO of FST Biometrics. “We are pleased that our solution answers The Granite Club’s key needs.”

FST Biometrics’ IMID product line offers access control through its proprietary In Motion Identification technology, providing a high level of security and convenience for users, who are accurately identified without having to stop or slow down.

The company’s solutions integrate a combination of biometric and analytic technologies that include face recognition, body behavior analytics and voice recognition.
