The Long Beach, New York company’s Access, a biometric tracking program protects the perimeters of buildings or public events using just a tablet and a Bluetooth beacon. Thanks to an agreement with Ayonix Face Technologies, Access is able to adopt the speed and detection capabilities of Ayonix’s 3D facial recognition technology.
Ipsidy and RemoteLock are “integrating their cloud platforms” to allow for any person seeking to open doors powered by the RemoteLock EdgeState cloud platform to first be authenticated using Ipsidy’s mobile biometric application, before RemoteLock enables access.
“Ipsidy is pleased to partner with RemoteLock to create the next generation of cloud-based facial biometric access management solutions,” said Ipsidy Inc CEO Philip Beck. “Security resellers and integrators can offer the combined solution that provides the security, control and certainty for physical access management, that is cost effective for their clients and easy to deploy and use.”
How the technology works
From single-door solutions to multi-door access control systems, property owners and managers can leverage the power of cloud-based facial biometrics on a smartphone to open doors. As a result, authorized employees and residents can easily enter buildings with wireless locks without having to offer up identification
Property owners can have employees, visitors, or guests use facial biometrics on the Ipsidy mobile application to access their offices, apartments, houses, campuses, or other buildings.
Ipsidy’s Access solution uses smartphones and Bluetooth beacons mounted at access points to automatically and seamlessly initiate the facial biometric authentication of the person arriving at a door.
When Ipsidy Access confirms to RemoteLock EdgeState that the person at the door is authorized to enter the property, the door is unlocked.
Optional Proof verification
This year, Ipsidy added to its repertoire again, with the unveiling of Proof, a mobile identity proofing system.
The program uses government-issued credentials and biometrics to provide remote mobile biometric ID verification as well as transaction authentication for businesses.
Ipsidy has seen the market for its proprietary biometric technology explode as companies push towards boosting security.
“We are delighted to be working with Ipsidy to broaden our platform capabilities by including their secure facial biometric solutions,” said RemoteLock Inc CEO Nolan Mondrow. “We have a common mission to provide global, scalable and secure cloud-based lock solutions for our customers.”
The companies will launch the combined solution in mid-2019.
Meanwhile, Ipsidy is exhibiting at the two-day International Security Conference and Exposition starting on Wednesday and RemoteLock will join Ipsidy in showcasing the new smart lock solution.
