Frictionless access with a wave from IDEMIA

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

IDEMIA was the Platinum Sponsor for the Residential Estate Security Conference 2020 and set up its MorphoWave Compact frictionless fingerprint biometric scanner at its stand so that attendees could experience the system for themselves. It also showed delegates some of its other biometric devices, using both fingerprint and facial recognition.

The MorphoWave Compact is a frictionless biometric reader perfectly suited to residential estates due to its speed, which limits bottlenecks at booms (entry and exit points) of estates, and accuracy (reducing the issuance of cards, which are not secure, easy to clone and regularly lost). Most importantly today, it is a frictionless technology (there is no need to touch it, which makes it more hygienic and therefore more popular with users).

The MorphoWave Compact acquires four fingers in 3D for maximum accuracy, with one pass of the hand over the sensor. This ergonomic, touchless solution delivers an unmatched combination of security, safety, convenience and throughput.

When it comes to products and services IDEMIA will be releasing over the next year or so, IDEMIA’s national sales director, Ingo Mutinelli, noted: “IDEMIA’s product roadmap looks exciting and this year will see enhancements of facial, finger and/or hand readers, as well as new software for a video/facial recognition product set. These have all been designed with the view of making movement freer for authorised persons and to quickly stop unauthorised movement.”

The company’s VisionPass facial recognition solution was launched recently. The device includes a camera set that takes 2D, 3D and Infrared images, analyses and compares them to make sure that there is a real person in front of the device and that the correct person is identified. Additionally, the system ensures that identification still takes place accurately, no matter what the person may be wearing, for example, spectacles or a cap, etc.
