Iris ID providing biometric ID system to U.S. Private Vaults

October 18, 2016 - 

Anonymous safety deposit box rental firm U.S. Private Vaults has selected Iris ID’s biometric identity verification technology, enabling customers to verify their identity through their unique iris pattern.

Upon signing up for the service, USPV’s 800 customers are enrolled in the Iris ID system within three minutes. After a brief orientation, customers can enter the vault door within seconds during business hours to access their safety box.

“Aside from being the best way to implement our business plan, the iris scan also captures potential customers’ imaginations,” said Matthew Bonvincin, USPV’s chief technology officer. “Mentioning the words ‘biometric iris access’ drives home what we’re trying to do when explaining a private and anonymous safe deposit box facility.”

The USPV vault features motion detectors, heat sensors and other advanced security measures to detect intruders after regular business hours.

The structural steel, reinforced concrete vault was designed to handle natural disasters, along with other attacks.

Additionally, the facility is monitored 24 hours a day by a leading national security service.

“Accuracy is critical for a business that identifies its customers only through iris scans,” said Mohammed Murad, global director of sales for Iris ID. “The Iris ID system also serves as another critical layer of security, ensuring only the renters of a safe deposit boxes can gain access to the vault.”

Previously reported, Iris ID’s IrisAccess iCAM7000 identity authentication system has been installed for employee time and attendance at all Sharjah Co-Operative Society retail stores in the United Arab Emirates.
