Biometrics and RFID security solutions provider ZKAccess has formed technology partnerships with Lenel, Amag, RS2, and Schneider-Electric to provide advanced integrated biometric security solutions to their customers.
ZKAccess’ ZKBioPack software now allows for the integration of ZKAccess biometric readers with RS2 Technology’s Access IT! access control software. RS2 Technologies customers can launch the ZKBioPack software application from within their Access It! software interface and Schneider Electric customers can also launch the ZKBioPack software application from within their Continuum software interface when ZKAccess IP-based biometric readers are added.
Supported ZKAccess biometric models for both the RS2 and Schneider Electric integrations include the F18 indoor fingerprint reader, the TF1700 & TF1600 outdoor fingerprint readers, and the MB700 multi-biometric fingerprint and face reader. ZKAccess biometric readers have the very same power, wiring and communication requirements as do any other third party readers, making ZKAccess hardware easy to install. With the introduction of ZKBioPack, enrolling users’ fingerprints is now equally simple.
The ZKAccess OP200 fingerprint-based access control reader was also designed to integrate directly with Lenel OnGuard and AMAG Symmetry software without needing middleware. The integration enables very fast bi-directional communication with the OP200, and enrolling users’ fingerprints is quick and easy.
“Enterprise integrators are demanding improved physical security solutions that are integrated, scalable, easy to use and affordable,” states Larry Reed, CEO, ZKAccess. “There are so many vulnerable access points within buildings and parking lots and increasingly more customers are looking to the heightened security that only biometrics provides.
Our technology partnerships with industry leaders such as Schneider Electric, RS2, AMAG and Lenel allow us an unprecedented opportunity to bring affordable biometric security to their customers all over the world.”
Earlier this month, ZKAccess met with over 50 ESA members at the recent New Jersey Electronic Security Association (NJESA) Annual Symposium and Expo where CEO Larry Reed and COO Manish Dalal educated attendees on its product capabilities using a demo board with live-working access control panels, readers, door locks, REXs and sensors.
