StoneLock Launches New Biometric Access Control Reader

StoneLock has launched a new biometric reader device for its StoneLock Gateway access control platform.

The reader, dubbed the ‘StoneLock GO’, is capable of scanning faces in a range of lighting conditions, from pitch dark to bright sunlight. It’s also capable of detecting multiple faces arranged in a potential ‘tailgating’ scenario in which an unauthorized user is attempting to gain entry by following on the heels of an authorized user, which it can automatically flag.

Together with StoneLock Gateway’s capability of registering and authenticating up to 20,000 users based on facial recognition, the StoneLock GO is being pitched as a solution for a range of high-throughput scenarios.

In a statement announcing the new solution, StoneLock CEO Colleen Dunlap explained that the StoneLock GO reader was “designed from the ground up to address the toughest authentication requirements our customers ask us about – high throughput, scalability, tailgate alarming, large population face-only, the ability to work outdoors, and being a secure solution for user privacy.”

StoneLock GO’s launch arrives on the occasion of this week’s Global Security Exchange (“GSX”) event in Las Vegas, which kicked off today and is scheduled to run until September 27th. StoneLock is showcasing its solutions from booth #1137 of the trade show.
