Real Time Networks adds Iris ID biometric authentication to smart lockers
Iris ID’s iCAM R100 biometric identity solution now integrates with KeyTracer key management cabinets and AssetTracer Smart Lockers from Real Time Networks and will be showcased next week at the Global Security Exchange (GSX) in Las Vegas.
Real Time Networks’ modular key management cabinets and electronic asset lockers employ custom modular designs to protect keys and other valuable assets used by law enforcement, utilities, manufacturing, government, correctional facilities, hospitality, gaming and many other industries. Users are authenticated using PINs, access control cards, RFID fobs and biometric identifiers.
The iCAM R100 integration provides a secure multi-factor authentication option for both convenience and high security. The R100 uses the iris to quickly and accurately identify people from 15 inches away. “The iCAM R100 is non-contact, so it’s not affected by dirt, grease, gloves, facial hair, hats, glasses and other factors that reduce the accuracy of fingerprint and facial recognition systems,” explained Mohammed Murad, vice president global sales and business development for Iris ID. “We’re very excited to bring our iris-based solution to Real Time Networks.”
Michael French, CEO of Real Time Networks, said both the key cabinets and asset lockers can be easily customized to meet specific user needs, adding that “the Iris ID system’s ease of use fits well with our custom-solution cabinets and lockers.”
The Iris ID-equipped KeyTracer key cabinets and AssetTracer Smart Lockers will also be featured at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference and Exposition in October.
