Built on a scalable Android® computing platform, the new IOM Access Control Tablet can provide additional functionality beyond its access control functions, such as time and attendance, two-way video communications, employee alerts and scheduling without additional equipment.
“Our new IOM Access Control Tablet brings the convenience and capabilities of iris recognition technology to mainstream access control applications,” said Mark Clifton, president, products and solutions division, and vice-president of SRI International, the parent company of SRI Identity. “It provides the gold standard of biometric identification – iris reader technology – for superior access control and identity management at a price point that is highly competitive for a broad range of security applications.”
The IOM Access Control Tablet joins the SRI Identity portfolio of solutions for physical and logical access control, workforce management, enterprise operations and emerging applications within the Internet of Things.
SRI says the IOM Access Control Tablet is a viable option to replace card readers in new or existing access systems, and provides advantages over traditional readers. According to the company, tests have shown this purely iris-based solution to be more than 1,000 times more accurate than published fingerprint data.
As a security solution that combines previously disparate functions, the IOM Access Control Tablet reduces complexity and costs for equipment, installation and wiring. The product will debut at the SRI booth at ISC West 2016.
