Suprema’s biometric access control solution ensures security at medical marijuana facility

Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News

Entertech Systems announced it has deployed Suprema biometric devices for access control at Canadian licensed medical marijuana producer, supplier and seller Aphria.

Security ONE Alarm Systems installed Entertech Systems’ solution at Aphria, which has three advanced light and computer controlled greenhouses in a 450,000 square foot facility in Leamington, Ontario, as well as 22,000 square feet of production space.

The Suprema solution provides biometric access control to sensitive areas by only granting authorized personnel access to exterior and interior doors, raw goods and processing areas, and the greenhouse.

The facility has implemented varying security levels based on the section of the facility, enabling Aphria to strictly control access throughout the entire building.

“At Entertech Systems, our goal is to help systems integrators like Security ONE provide end users with biometric access control solutions that address market or regulatory requirements while providing secure operational ease and better access management oversight,” said Entertech Systems CEO Rob Douglas. “We are pleased to have helped Aphria secure their sprawling facility with a biometric solution that ensures only a person’s true identity can be used for access.”

In a separate release, Entertech Systems announced that Irish security products distributor Reliable Security Products Ltd. is providing Suprema biometrics and Entertech’s BioConnect application for access control in the Irish market.

Reliable Security Products is now offering Suprema’s line of fingerprint detection, card and PIN readers, including FaceStation, BioStation T2, BioStation, BioEntry Plus, BioEntry W, BioLite Net, and Xpass.

Previously reported, Entertech Systems released identity management platform BioConnect 3.0, which enables users to integrate Suprema biometric readers with access control systems.
