There has been a lot of buzz in recent years about the emergence of fingerprint-scanning smart cards, thanks to technological advancement enabling the integration of biometric sensors into typically-sized cards that can be produced at scale. And while a lot of the excitement has focused on biometric payment cards, this same technological approach can also be applied to the kinds of smart cards used for access control.
Pennsylvania-based Sentry Enterprises has done just that, and it has stoked considerable investor interest in the process. The company kicked off 2022 with a $13 million Series D preferred equity offering, announcing at the time that the funding would be used to scale operations and to increase its stake in card engineering specialist X-Core Technologies. Sentry Enterprises went on to showcase its flagship solution at ISC West, where FindBiometrics’ Doug OGorden caught up with the company’s President, John Calzaretta, who spoke in-depth about the tech and offered a demonstration of how it works.
