FST Biometrics and Genetec Inc. announce product integration
FST Biometrics and Genetec Inc. say they will work together to integrate the FST biometric fusion of identification technology, which combine face recognition and body behavior analytics, with the Genetec Synergis access control system in Security Center.
FST’s In Motion Identification (IMID) technology will be deployed as a part of Genetec Security Center, a unified IP security platform, and will manage physical secure access to facilities through an integration that allows Security Center customers to maintain their existing security setup. Security Center users will now have the option to implement an identity management component that will admit users based on their biometric profile as they approach access points. IMID can also be combined with RFID cards for organizations that require multi-factor identification.
“The integration of IMID into the Security Center ecosystem means that users will be identified by who they are, not what they carry — all without breaking their stride or slowing down,” said Arie Melamed, CMO of FST Biometrics.
With this integration, Security Center users will be able to receive real-time alerts from IMID such as when unauthorized or blacklisted visitors attempt to enter the facility, the companies add.
“Genetec is pleased to collaborate with FST Biometrics to offer our end-users an expanded choice of secure access management options to incorporate facial recognition and body behavior analytics” said Derek Arcuri, product marketing manager, Genetec Inc. “Adding the capability of In Motion Identification to the Synergis access control solution in Security Center, credential holders will be able to access restricted areas more conveniently.”
