Precise Biometrics announces YOUNiQ facial recognition solution for building security
Precise Biometrics has integrated the facial recognition capabilities of its YOUNiQ digital identity offering with door access systems to provide secure biometric physical access control to offices and restricted facilities, according to a company announcement.
In several pilot projects this year, Precise YOUNiQ was developed and tested with select partners, ahead of its commercial rollout in 2020. The software makes onboarding and access convenient and secure, and enables any organization to simplify its access solution, Precise says.
“We increasingly use services that require registration and authentication of people’s digital identity, but which are often complicated and not as secure as we think. Access to offices and buildings has long been dominated by passcodes, access cards, tags and keys; outdated entry systems in today’s digitized society. Through the launch of Precise YOUNiQ for facility access, we open the door to a more convenient, secure and contemporary everyday life,” says Precise’ CEO Stefan K. Persson.
Precise YOUNiQ is currently being tested for facility access in ongoing pilots with partners in the real estate, education, and health care sectors.
“The Center for Identification Technology Research (CITeR) at Clarkson University has for many years conducted research and development within biometric recognition,” states Dr. Stephanie Schuckers, Director of CITeR. “Therefore, I’m thrilled to see the students utilize Precise YOUNiQ in our engineering labs, as it allows them to take part in novel technology that can inspire them to develop solutions of the next-generation.”
YOUNiQ was announced as Precise’ new digital identity product at the beginning of this year as part of the company’s strategy of moving its technology closer to end customers, and a partnership with Covr Security to develop products leveraging YOUNiQ for secure online verification was announced in June.
