Princeton Identity announces the new IOM Access200w iris recognition reader. The environmentally sealed and impact-resistant model designed is for use outdoors as part of the company’s IOM Access200 biometric identity product family. The IOM Access200w is said to be the first outdoor solution of its kind, which when integrated with access control platforms, allows customers to unlock exterior building doors without removing gloves or reaching in pockets to find access cards while delivering the security of iris recognition authentication.
The IOM Access200w features a configurable PIN pad, integrates with external card readers and provides immediate feedback to users with face capture. The reader is suitable for use in heat, cold, humidity, direct sunlight and low light conditions.
Well-suited for a wide range of applications, including college and corporate campuses, critical infrastructures, correctional facilities, airports, data centers and more, the IOM Access200 system’s distributed architecture allows users to network any number and combination of indoor and outdoor readers throughout a facility or multi-site environments.
“Princeton Identity is pleased to be first to market with a biometric identity solution that offers the convenience, speed and security of iris recognition for use on building exteriors. Outdoor entryways are often the first areas of concern when designing a security program, and now our customers can leverage the use of this golden biometric on these exterior locations as well as for securing internal spaces,” says Bob McKee, Princeton Identity’s vice president of sales and marketing. “With the addition of our new IOM Access200w reader, Princeton Identity offers a true end-to-end identity management system that’s unparalleled in its accuracy, security, convenience and flexibility, and an ideal enhancement to any facility’s access control and physical security solutions.”
