“It only takes 30 seconds to register a new user. In addition, because there is no direct contact between the user and the reader, hygiene is another very important point.” – Ricardo Miralha, Regional Sales Manager, Brazil and Southern Cone, IDEMIA
One of IDEMIA‘s flagship biometric products, the MorphoWave Compact, is now being used to secure multiple condominiums in Brazil. The company says its devices are being used for residential access control in Barueri, a municipality in the state of São Paulo.
IDEMIA first announced the MorphoWave Compact at the 2018 ISC West. A smaller version of its award-winning MorphoWave Tower, the device is capable of capturing four fingerprints at a time, without the need for physical contact: end users can therefore authenticate with a simple wave of the hand.
At the Bareuri condominiums, this technology means that residents can easily can access to their buildings without the need to carry a key card or fob. And with no need for physical contact, it’s a particularly apropos access control solution at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted social distancing and new concerns about hygiene.
“There is greater agility in the entry of residents, which leads to greater security,” said IDEMIA’s regional sales manager for Brazil and the Southern Cone, Ricardo Miralha. “It only takes 30 seconds to register a new user. In addition, because there is no direct contact between the user and the reader, hygiene is another very important point.”
IDEMIA says the Barueri deployments took roughly 20 days to complete. They arrive after a pilot deployment last month that saw the MorphoWave Compact integrated into a soccer stadium in Japan.
