“Most of the existing Bluetooth products on the market are about as attractive as a deck of cards. The Unity Bluetooth reader, on the other hand, breaks the mold and is a stunning device with a slim, sleek white case, a single button and three small LEDs.” – Jeff Brown, VP Sales and Marketing, SecuGen
SecuGen has announced the next device in its lineup of optical fingerprint readers.
Dubbed the Unity Bluetooth, it’s a fingerprint reader that can be programmed right out of the box using SecuGen’s Fingerprint Management System API. It also offers a Linux-based SDK allowing for customization of its fingerprint capture, template creation, and biometric matching functionality. And in terms of its physical design, it’s small enough to fit into a pocket, allowing for in-the-field or desktop use.
In announcing the solution, however, SecuGen Sales and Marketing VP Jeff Brown emphasized its aesthetics. “Most of the existing Bluetooth products on the market are about as attractive as a deck of cards,” he said. “The Unity Bluetooth reader, on the other hand, breaks the mold and is a stunning device with a slim, sleek white case, a single button and three small LEDs.”
The reader is powered by SecuGen’s new U20-ASF-BT OEM Bluetooth sensor, which the company described as “the heart, soul, and brains” of the reader in a statement announcing the solutions. The U20-ASF-BT is, of course, based on the company’s compact U20 fingerprint sensor; and like the Unity Bluetooth it supports, it’s programmable via the Fingerprint Management System API or the Linux SDK.
The solutions aren’t yet available commercially – SecuGen says they are “soon to be released” – but the company will showcase them at the 2018 GSC exhibition, which is slated to run from September 25th to September 27th in Las Vegas.
