FST Biometrics releases mobile and portable access control products

March 31, 2015 - 

FST Biometrics announced it has released two new biometric access products, including IMID Mobile smartphone application and IMID Rapid portable device.

“Each of these new products demonstrates the flexibility of our technology and represents an expansion of our secure access capabilities,” said FST Biometrics CMO Arie Melamed. “We are being responsive to our users and adapting IMID to fit their needs. We can now offer truly mobile and portable applications of our biometric secure access solution.”

Serving as a companion to the IMID Access system, the IMID Mobile app can be installed onto the smartphones of security guards, school security personnel and parking garage guards to provide a mobile secure access experience.

The app identifies authorized users based on a combination of biometrics including facial and behavioral recognition.

“When performing security checks throughout a facility, guards are limited to their own memory and knowledge,” said Melamed. “IMID Mobile provides key supplemental information to security personnel – recognizing authorized users or alerting in the case of unauthorized users – all on the guard’s personal mobile device.”

Meanwhile, IMID Rapid incorporates FST Biometrics’ IMID Access solution into an end-to-end portable device that can be used anywhere.

Providing a complete IMID Access system in a portable case, the product does not require any additional hardware or software. Security personnel are able to assemble the device and secure an area within ten minutes.

Previously reported, Canadian social, recreation and athletic club, The Granite Club 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.
