ievo fingerprint readers can now be integrated with Texecom security alarm system
ievo announced that its fingerprint readers can now be integrated with Texecom’s security alarm systems, making biometric access control technology more accessible to the domestic and smaller SME markets.
The integration of ievo fingerprint readers with Texecom’s Premier Elite Series of control panel systems provides a single comprehensive system architecture and peripheral range of devices managed by biometric access control.
As a result, intruder alarm systems can be activated and disarmed by reading a registered fingerprint.
The system can also be extended to transmit information used for a single door access control entry point to further functionality.
“We’re delighted to be working with an award-winning international leader in electronic security devices and see this integration as opening up a potentially huge market for smaller and domestic systems,” Ievo sales manager Richard Forsyth said. “With the Texecom integration now available, we are already seeing an uptake from those who previously enquired about intruder alarm integration and single door access control.”
Forsyth said that the company’s fingerprint readers combine “convenience and enhanced security for high end domestic and SME users.”
ievo fingerprint readers incorporate multispectral imaging technology (MSI) technology, enabling them to identify a registered fingerprint even if there are surface contaminants (grease, dust, etc.) on the skin.
Additionally, the company’s P65 rating means the fingerprint readers can function in the most extreme environments.
As a result, the readers can be positioned externally, which makes them ideal for industrial and construction environments where the system provides multi-level access with certain personnel restricted to specific areas.
“Additionally, and very importantly for the high end domestic market, biometric authentication is treated as a portable proximity tag, or ace, and thus complies with standards required by Police response systems which have to be operated with such tags,” Mike Govier, Texecom’s senior customer support engineer, said. “This solution gives us a security system that complies with Police response requirements and greater control over access to a property.”
Previously reported, ievo supplied its “ultimate” fingerprint readers as an integral part of the security for the multi-million refurbishment and restoration of the Tyne Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnels.
