Tyco Security to deploy Safran MorphoAccess SIGMA Series
Tyco Security Products will be integrating the Safran MorphoAccess SIGMA Series access control high speed biometric and card reader and the MorphoWave Tower into its C•CURE 9000 Security and Event Management platforms to deliver contactless access control.
The MorphoAccess SIGMA Series readers employ fingerprint technology that is ranked the most accurate in the world by NIST. The optical biometric sensor used in the readers also meets the FBI’s standards for Personal Identity Verification and Image Quality Specifications. The SIGMA Lite Series readers, which are designed for narrow mounting surfaces such as turnstiles or server rack doors, are ideal for a wide array of indoor and outdoor deployments.
According to a statement by the company, the SIGMA Series readers feature a color touchscreen and buzzer for advanced interactivity, and can be used with any electronic device that has Web access, including laptops, PCs, tablets and smart phones. The readers support Prox, iCLASS, MIFARE, MIFARE Plus, DESFire and NFC cards. An embedded server enables on-device enrollment, transaction log retrieval and terminal configuration, as well as user ID, BioPIN and PIN management.
“The MorphoAccess SIGMA Series reader is considered one of the best fingerprint readers in the world, pairing toughness and durability with superb performance, advanced anti-fraud capabilities and mobile access features,” said Jason Ouellette, Product Line Director, Access Control, Tyco Security Products. “The MorphoWave Tower is the first touchless biometric access reader able to capture and match four fingerprints with a single hand movement. Both are the best performing and most innovative in their class, an indication of the high value that Tyco Security Products places on bringing cutting edge, high-performing innovations to our customers’ doorsteps.”
