Biometrics, the safest form of access control

How biometrics is the smart way to point to the future.

Anyone who has been responsible for administering an access control system of a reasonable size will know that their staff have a very annoying tendency to lose their prox cards on a fairly regular basis. This can be costly for starters. There may also be a high staff turnover so cards may need to be replaced frequently. Its for this reason and of one of security that anyone with this sort of scenario should be made aware of the potential benefits of biometric fingerprint readers.

Obviously it’s much harder to leave your fingerprints on the train, and its also less likely for fingerprints to be copied or stolen . However technology in the past has meant finger print readers can be slow and unreliable. Not anymore though.

iEvo Readers have been designed to deal with problems that affect fingerprint recognition, sun rain frost etc. They have and developed a system that reads beneath the fingerprint itself and its much more reliable. It is called multi-spectral imaging.

iEvo now has its reader installed on buildings such as construction sites, offices, schools and colleges and its multi-spectral imaging technology is gaining a good reputation in the industry.

iEvo have readers installed across the UK and also abroad in places such as the Middle East. Instead of using a pin-code or a card system, people are waking up to the potential of biometrics.

The iEvo system is derived from technology used to painlessly scan blood sugar levels without a needle.It is operational in a range of temperatures from -20C to 70C, and can be integrated into existing systems such as NET2 and is so clever it can get a reading through obstacles such as dust, dirt and water.

“It works by scanning the finger 4mm below the surface of the skin itself using nine different formats of polarised and non-polarised light.

This allows the reader to identify the unique network of patterns on the human hand, below the top layer which can be affected by dirt or wear”.

“While the system can identify up to 8,000 different patterns, it does not store any of the prints itself. Instead, it stores the certain features located around the print called minutia points, transfers them through an algorithm in an encrypted form and stores them as a binary code”.

iEvo extract a pattern from a print so you can’t merely re-engineer the fingerprint from any of the information stored on the system.”

iEvo products are also able to integrate into existing card and fob systems and they also are available in a range of custom colours to match with existing fixtures and fittings.
