IDEMIA, a leader in Augmented Identity, has announced a partnership with Bosch Building Technologies, a global leader in the security market, to tap the biometric access control market.
Bosch Building Technologies offers a software solution that manages different Bosch security subsystems like access control, video surveillance, fire alarm, public address and intrusion systems on one single platform, the Bosch Building Integration System (BIS).
In order to add a biometric layer to BIS, Bosch has selected IDEMIA’s terminals: IDEMIA is the market leader of biometrics for access control with more than 25 year’s experience in that domain, and hundreds of thousands of terminals successfully deployed for a great variety of industries, throughout the world.
Bosch will offer IDEMIA’s flagship contactless biometric terminals:
- MorphoWave, the only terminal in the world capable of scanning and verifying 4 fingerprints in less than 1 second through a quick, simple and fully touchless wave movement of the hand,
- VisionPass the most advanced facial recognition terminal combining 2D, 3D and infrared cameras with IDEMIA’s leading facial algorithms.
Both terminals combine high biometric accuracy, speed and convenience with a fully touchless user experience. They operate efficiently with sanitary masks and are therefore well adapted for Covid-prevention policies. IDEMIA terminals are already integrated with the BIS platform and with most gates and turnstile vendors. This will greatly facilitate deployments in Bosch specific markets with a focus on commercial buildings, industrial and logistics sites, government premises and airports/seaports.
“Bosch stands for quality and reliability. We want to offer innovative and fascinating solutions, as our slogan ‘invented for life’ states. When our customers are going to deploy biometric terminals for their security, they will be installed for years so we want to offer them the best option”, explains Gregor Schlechtriem, Senior Vice President Bosch Building Technologies Business Unit Access & Intrusion. “Idemia is therefore for us the right partner because of their technology expertise and field-proven quality and performances”, Schlechtriem continues.
“We are delighted to start this global partnership with Bosch”, commented Yves Portalier, EVP Biometric Devices and Automotive at IDEMIA. “The combination of our biometric devices with the BIS platform will be a strong offering for companies looking for a high level of security and user convenience”.
