A need to take security to the next level has given rise to the increased integration of biometric options with new and existing access control systems.
Where in the early days of biometrics the systems were often viewed as competitors or substitutes for traditional access control, today the focus is on making the best use of multiple components to serve diverse security needs.
ATLANTA - Video surveillance software company Vista-scape Security Systems has garnered its largest contract to date in a pilot project that will test the companyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s system along a 12-mile stretch between the Mexico and United States border.
The project marks the first border application for VistascapeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s software, which integrates with an existing surveillance system and helps manage data.
BEAVERTON, Ore. - A year and half after spinning off from Unicru, an automator of pre-employment screening systems, Eid Access is poised to land on its feet with an $11 million round of funding expected to close later this year.
While biometric access control may be more commonly implemented in government facilities and high-end applications, the reality is that in addition to these traditional users, many more adopters are finding a place for biometrics.
GARLAND, Texas - In June, Garrett Metal Detectors finished installing the last of $1 million worth of walk-through devices at airports across the United States, which followed GarrettÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ongoing deal as the sole supplier of hand-held metal detectors used by the Transportation Security Administration.
In the last year, Garrett has delivered more than 11,000 of its SuperWands to U.
Some companies this year have discussed the benefit of moving from operating their own central stations to partnering with a third party monitoring center, including RFI Communications, Red Hawk Fire & Security and Comtronics. Will more companies switch to using wholesale centrals?
