Mexico selects Anviz biometrics

Access & Identity Management Handbook 2017 Access Control & Identity Management, Integrated Solutions

Mexico’s environment ministry, SEMARNAT (Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources) is charged with the mission of protecting, restoring, and conserving the ecosystems, natural resources, assets and environmental services of Mexico with the goal of fostering sustainable development.

SEMARNAT has 40 branches and 2000 employees nationally. The principal office is located in Mexico City that manages 40 branches in other cities. Users need to access their different branch buildings every day, with two identification modes required on the integrated system.

One consists of the visitor only with card identification and the other employees with card and fingerprint identification mode. Every two Anviz OA1000 Mercury Pro devices controls one single lane flap barrier. When employees scan their card and/or place a fingerprint on a reader to gain access, the single lane flap barrier will open. The Mercury Pro with fingerprint identification increases the security level and makes it a secure choice to build intelligent and secure access control application systems.

DR Security integrated the Anviz OA1000 Mercury Pro after strict testing and evaluation with the Anviz R&D professional support team. The Mercury Pro is one of Anviz’s fingerprint flagship models, based on the Linux operating system, with features of dual-core high-speed CPU; large memory support; and 1:30000 matching high speed in less than 0,5 seconds. Multiple communication solutions are available, including TCP/IP, Wi-Fi and 3G (optional). Its built-in web server allows fast, easy access to the device settings and record searching.

After the installation of the Mercury Pro devices, SEMARNAT received users’ positive feedback and realised real-time monitoring of employees and visitors’ entry/exit times, improved office security levels and saved labour costs. Other institutions of Mexico government are now interested and may apply this system.
