Frictionless access with a wave

October 2019 Access Control & Identity Management, Residential Estate (Industry)

IDEMIA was the Platinum Sponsor for the Residential Estate Security Conference 2019 and set up its MorphoWave Compact frictionless fingerprint biometric scanner at the entrance to the conference so that attendees could experience the system for themselves. It also had a stand among the other exhibitors where it again displayed the MorphoWave, along with some of its other biometric devices, using both fingerprint and facial recognition.

IDEMIA’s national sales director, Ingo Mutinelli was on hand along with other personnel from the company to speak to delegates as they enquired about the IDEMIA products and their applicability to the estate market. Mutinelli said, “I found the conference well organised and professional with the right audience. The delegates we interacted with were the right target and demographic for us.”

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

When it comes to products and services IDEMIA will be releasing over the next year or so, Mutinelli noted: “IDEMIA’s product roadmap looks exciting and next 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.
