Recognition Systems provides handy access to high-rise condo residents.

August '99 Access Control & Identity Management

Naples Cay, a high-rise complex in Naples, is using Recognition Systems HandKey hand geometry readers to ensure the safety of the tenants and their surroundings. Two hand geometry readers installed in the elevators of the complex restrict tenants' access only to their respective floors while eliminating the problems and aggravations of forgotton, lost or stolen cards.

"Naples Cay typically has two condos per floor, each with a value of over $1 (R6) million," explains Gil Neuman, CEO for Kent Security, the System Integrator. "The property wanted a system which would provide total accountability of access into the building."

With almost 300 residents enrolled in the system, the readers have been a great success with the residents. According to Neuman, the residents feel more comfortable about the added security the system has provided.

"This is the ultimate in access control," continues Neuman. "With such a system one does not have to rely on a plastic badge for access. We chose Recognition Systems HandKey readers for this installation because of its lengthy experience in the field and also because its products are extremely reliable."

The Recognition Systems HandKey hand geometry reader looks at the 3-dimensional size and shape of a resident's hand. The result of 90 hand measurements, including lengths, widths, thickness and surface areas are converted into a 9 byte mathematical representation of the hand which is stored for later use and verification. Verification takes 1 s.
