Idemia biometrics deployed for contactless access control in North Sydney’s tallest building
European access control system developer Cominfo has upgraded its EasyGate SPT entrance control gates with Idemia’s MorphoWave Compact 3D biometric fingerprint terminal to deliver frictionless and secure access to over 2,000 people entering the tallest building in North Sydney on a daily basis, Idemia revealed in a case study posted on LinkedIn.
The EasyGate SPT models use innovative MDD motor technology and infrared optical sensors to prevent tailgating and cross-over of unauthorized people. In under a second, a hand gesture is enough for MorphoWave Compact to run a 3D scan and verification of four fingerprints. The upgrade is suitable for high-traffic locations as it can authenticate as many as 50 people per minute, the company claims.
The project was rolled out by Australian entrance control solutions provider Centaman, Cominfo’s partner in the region. In May 2019, Centaman integrated the MorphoWave contactless biometric finger scanner into the EasyGate SPT speedgate.
Given increased awareness in home security systems, tech innovation and extensive adoption of wireless security, the international access control market is estimated to surge from $8.6 billion in 2020 to $12.8 billion by 2025, at a CAGR growth of 8.2 percent.
The global contactless biometrics technology market is forecast to near $18.6 billion by 2026, at a market growth of 19.1 percent CAGR.
