EyeLock iris biometrics integrated with Genetec access control platform


EyeLock has integrated its iris biometric authentication technology with Genetec’s Security Center Synergis access control platform and reached a reseller agreement to provide dependable, rapid, and hassle-free iris template management. The access control system integration is the seventh for EyeLock’s Identity Suite, and was written entirely with the company’s SDK.

Genetec has been rapidly adding third-party biometric access control devices to the Synergis platform, including fingerprint access control devices from Invixium.

“We are delighted to become a key part of the Genetec Synergis offering”, said Jeff Carter, Chief Executive Officer of Eyelock. “By including Eyelock products that are fully integrated with Genetec access control systems, our network of experienced, value added resellers and system integrators will be able to help realize substantial features and business benefits for both our organizations.”

The integrated interface speeds up the onboarding process by eliminating dual data entry for the companies’ mutual customers, and also enables intelligent onboard memory management within the EyeLock iris readers. Iris templates are delivered only to necessary doors and access points, based on individual’s permissions.

“The Genetec Security Center software developer’s kit (SDK) enabled EyeLock with the ability to fully embed the entire iris enrollment process inside of the Security Center interface, and provided a completely unifed experience for the end user,” said Thibaut Louvet, Product Group Director for Access Control at Genetec. “Having a fully embedded experience with Synergis and the EyLock biometric hardware will improve operational efficiency by accelerating onboarding and management for our access control users.”

EyeLock’s technology was also recently integrated with a vending machine solution.
