Princeton Identity launches iris biometric reader for outdoor use
Princeton Identity today announced its new IOM Access200w iris recognition reader, an environmentally sealed and impact resistant model designed for outdoor use, as part of the company’s IOM Access200 biometric identity product family.
When integrated with access control platforms, the IOM Access200w outdoor solution enables customers to unlock exterior building doors using iris recognition authentication. It features a configurable PIN pad, integrates with external card readers, and provides immediate feedback to users with face capture. The iris biometric reader is suitable for use in heat, cold, humidity, direct sunlight and low light conditions.
According to the announcement, the IOM Access200 system’s distributed architecture allows users to network any number and combination of indoor and outdoor readers throughout a facility or multi-site environments.
“Princeton Identity is pleased to be first to market with a biometric identity solution that offers the convenience, speed and security of iris recognition for use on building exteriors,” commented Bob McKee, Princeton Identity’s vp of sales and marketing. “Outdoor entryways are often the first areas of concern when designing a security program, and now our customers can leverage the use of this golden biometric on these exterior locations as well as for securing internal spaces. With the addition of our new IOM Access200w reader, Princeton Identity offers a true end-to-end identity management system that’s unparalleled in its accuracy, security, convenience and flexibility, and an ideal enhancement to any facility’s access control and physical security solutions.”
In December the identity management company revealed that Auburn University deployed its biometric technology for access control.
