Tyco Security Products adds iris authentication
Suitable for business, government and other applications, EyeLock nano NXT uses video, rather than still pictures, to capture eye images at 20 frames per second. EyeLock’s technology converts the unique characteristics of each iris into encrypted code, creating a high level of security with a false accept rate during authentication of 1 in 1.5 million for a single eye.
The biometric identifier can authenticate up to 20 people per minute while in-motion and at-a-distance of 12 inches.
“Tyco Security Products continues to build its biometric integration portfolio, offering customers the latest and most accurate technologies available,” said Jason Ouellette, product line director, access control, Tyco Security Products. “The availability of EyeLock nano NXT for use with C•CURE 9000 presents end users with expanded options for a highly secure access control solution.”
The EyeLock nano NXT can be deployed within a networked C•CURE 9000 platform and can serve as part of a two-factor authentication process. The compact EyeLock nano NXT, which measures just 8 inches by 5 inches, offers an on-board memory of up to 20,000 unique users.
Additional features of EyeLock nano NXT include tamper detection and a web configuration tool. Customization is available through an optional SDK.
