Software House integrates IdentyTech palm vein readers with security solution

April 14, 2015 - 

Software House, the security products business unit of fire protection and security firm Tyco, has integrated IdentyTech biometric palm vein readers with its C•CURE 9000 security and event management solution.

Users can now add IdentyTech’s IDTJade and IDTSapphire palm vein readers as part of a networked C•CURE 9000 solution.

Using PalmSecure palm vein biometric technology, these readers identify people based on patterns of the blood vessels found within the palm of the hand. Using a near-infrared light to detect unique vein vessel patterns, palm vein readers provide a highly reliable and accurate identification solution.

The IDT Sapphire, which features an integrated keypad and smart card/proximity reader, can work with cards, PINs or biometrics for three-factored authentication.

The IDTJade, on the other hand, is intended to be used with small- to mid-size access control applications.

The biometric palm vein reader offers multi-factor identification and verification for thousands of users with integrated MIFARE, iCLASS, and proximity smart cards and biometrics.

“With C•CURE 9000 as the backbone, businesses can easily integrate higher levels of security with peripherals, such as IdentyTech’s biometric palm readers, to enhance their access control systems,” said Jason Ouellette, product line director – access control at Tyco Security Products. “It’s all about leading the market in the ability to integrate systems as simply and easily as possible, while leveraging innovative technologies such as palm vein to solve real world access control issues and to go beyond customer needs.”
