Ievo has become the latest biometric access control specialist to see its technology integrated into the Genetec Security Center.
Genetec’s open architecture platform is designed to offer end clients access to a number of security features including license plate recognition, video surveillance, and biometric authentication. The company’s interest in biometric technologies is longstanding, with Genetec having integrated technology from Suprema back in 2015, and from BioConnect last year.
Now, the Genetec Security Center supports Ievo’s fingerprint-based access control technology. It marks something of a trend for the latter, which has also seen its fingerprint readers embraced by prominent solutions providers in the UK over the past year.
In a statement announcing the integration, the companies framed it as a win-win that should increase business and market reach for both. Ievo Managing Director Shaun Oakes explained that Ievo is “expanding our portfolio of working partnerships which will allow us to provide our system installers and end-users a wider selection of beneficial access control solutions,” while Genetec Access Control Commercial Manager Francois Brouillet said the integration “will provide greater flexibility and choice for our end-users, adding another competitive edge for our unified security platform in what is an evolving marketplace.”
