Handheld mobile identification device

August 2013 Access Control & Identity Management

Ideco has released the MorphoIDent handheld mobile identification solution to help strengthen law enforcement. The solution is designed primarily for public safety agents and officers, and enables real-time identification based on Morpho’s fingerprint recognition technology.

Fully certified by international regulators such as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), MorphoIDent offers the user the benefit of field-proven Morpho biometrics technology – incorporated into the most widely-used optical fingerprint sensor on the market.

“What the developers have focused on is ease-of-use, accuracy and practicality,” explains Marius Coetzee, CEO at Ideco. “The device features an intuitive user interface and large colour screen that is clearly visible outdoors. This makes the technology and the solution ideal for the law enforcement environment, particularly from a local point of view.”

The solution is not only a mobile biometric device, but when integrated via Bluetooth can serve as a complete solution for on-the-spot, anywhere identification in the field.

All data managed by MorphoIDent is transferred, via Bluetooth or USB, to a PC, smartphone or PDA running the MorphoMobile application. This application provides a secure connection to AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System), in addition to configuration and device management.

“If one thinks about the need for safety and security in the country, and the value that instant, reliable identity verification offers law enforcement officials, then we can already see a demand in the market and immediate opportunity for application,” adds Coetzee.
