CN deploys FST Biometrics’ IMID solution for access control

Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News
 

FST Biometrics has successfully deployed its In Motion Identification (IMID) solution, integrated with Automatic Systems‘ SmartLane turnstiles, at CN’s headquarters in Montreal, Canada.

FST’s contactless system is installed at all perimeter access points of CN’s headquarters, as well as at the entrance of the corporate child daycare center.

Canadian integrator Infynia Security oversaw the implementation and integration process at CN’s headquarters.

The process included installing FST’s IMID software and Automatic Systems’ SmartLane turnstiles to provide access to its 3,000 employees, contractors and in specific cases, for visitors entering the company’s headquarters.

Once users are registered, FST’s IMID Access identifies enrolled users almost instantaneously, allowing them to enter and exit the facility without waiting, swiping a card, punching a code or showing any documentation.

Automatic Systems’ SmartLane optical turnstiles are being used in concert with IMID as the physical access component of the complete access control solution. The turnstile solution helps prevent tailgating and expedites the flow of foot traffic.

“The accurate, frictionless and convenient nature of our in-motion identification solution were an excellent fit to meet CN’s identification and secure access needs,” said Arie Melamed, CMO of FST Biometrics. “We are pleased that a global transportation leader has implemented our system at the headquarters of its operations. We look forward to developing this relationship further in the future. We thank Infynia Security and Automatic Systems for collaborating on this complete secure access solution.”

FST’s IMID solutions have been implemented in a range of venues including large office buildings, residential complexes, pharmaceutical companies and high-security trade and production facilities.

This summer, FST Biometrics received Lenel factory certification under the Lenel OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP).
