Bosch develops biometric fingerprint reader for buildings
The system features fake fingerprint detection to increase security and protect company assets
Global technology supplier Bosch has unveiled a biometric fingerprint reader, BioEntry W2, designed to eliminate unauthorised access to building structures such as offices, airports and stadiums.
The system will include two softwares - Access Management System and Building Integration System – to increase security measures and to allow employees and workers to move around buildings freely.
The Access Management System will be used for medium- to large-sized projects such as office buildings, while the Building Integration System will be used for airports and stadiums.
One of the features of the reader is the ability to filter fake fingerprints and block fake fingerprints made out of various materials such as clay, rubber, silicon, glue, paper and film.
Commenting on the biometric reader, Bosch Middle East’s regional director Hakan Ozyigit said: “Investing in the right technology is central to the protection of any company’s assets, including your employees.
He added: “Our innovations support building managers in ensuring that their access control systems are able to secure premises with a balance - making it easy for staff and visitors to move around the building effortlessly, while ensuring maximum protection and integrity against unauthorised entry.”
