Idemia’s contactless biometric terminals deployed in condominiums around São Paulo

Idemia’s contactless biometric terminals deployed in condominiums around São Paulo

MorphoWave contactless biometric terminals developed by Idemia have been rolled out at the gates of a number of residential buildings in Barueri, a municipality in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, the company announced.

The biometric terminals are equipped with a reader that runs a 3D fingerprint scan. In one second, they scan and check four fingerprints from a contactless, “wave” hand gesture to provide faster access, hygienic and frictionless access control. The user is never in physical contact with the sensor.

Other locations where the technology has been rolled out include well-known condominiums and clubs in the São Paulo region.

The deployment in Barueri took roughly 20 days. As it supports fast and easy installation on existing access devices, it is a viable option for system integrators that can reuse equipment. The contactless feature makes the terminals reliable and easy to manage.

“There is greater agility in the entry of residents, which leads to greater security. It only takes 30 seconds to register a new user. In addition, because there is no direct contact between the user and the reader, hygiene is another very important point,” said Ricardo Miralha, regional sales manager for Brazil and Southern Cone at Idemia, in a prepared statement.

MorphoWave was recently successfully piloted for frictionless access control at a stadium in Japan.
