BKS fingerprint access locking system meets VdS requirements


German security technology company BKS, a division of the Gretsch-Unitas Group, has received approval according to the new VdS 3112 guideline for its fingerprint-actuated locking system.

“Due to a market-unique combination of the multi-point lock, data transfer and control of the door by fingerprint scanner or code keypad, the GU-door concept sets standards for greater safety and convenience,” said Harald Gillessen, Product Manager at BKS. “The comprehensive VdS tests have proven that our `GU-Secury Automatic access controlled´ provides optimum resistance to all burglar methods. We are very pleased to now be able to clearly verify the reliability of our new development with the VdS quality seal.”

VdS is a European-based security institute that has developed guidelines for the safe design of biometric recognition methods (VdS 3112) in close collaboration with researchers and manufacturers.

“It’s a good feeling to be able to support our customers also in testing innovative technologies quickly and effectively,” said Günter Grundmann, Head of Security Laboratories at VdS. “This newly recognized `GU-Secury Automatic´ meets all proven VdS requirements for locking systems in terms of operational safety and reliability. Even fingerprint forgeries or adverse environmental conditions such as cold or humidity are no problem.”
