What Are The New Trends And Opportunities For Biometrics?

A shift toward touchless devices during the coronavirus pandemic has been a boon to the biometrics sector. Another factor in the recent increase in use of biometrics is lower prices, which are a symptom of a maturing market and of new technology capabilities.

Vanderbilt Installs ACT365 Cloud-Based Access Control Reader At Denmark’s Vejle Marina

The cloud-based access control and video management system was recently installed at the city’s marina where it has integrated with their booking system, Harba. There are 750 members with boats in the Vejle marina, and through the Harba booking system, they are issued a 6-digit personal PIN code or a tag. With this PIN code, they can then access and use the facilities of the marina, such as the toilets, showers, laundry rooms, and kitchen. The PIN is inputted into the ACT365 reader at each entry point of the marina facilities. All services are then automatically billed on a monthly base via the Harba booking system. This access control booking strategy ensures that the marina’s facilities are kept free for member use only. Readers with RFID tags and smartphone access ACT365’s readers were well suited to this installation because they are made of robust polycarbonate housing and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor mounting. The reader controls a single door and uses a voltage free relay contact. ACT365 has a modern and user-friendly design and a limitless number of users. Both RFID tags and smartphone access availability. For non-member boaters who are visiting the Vejle marina, a self-service terminal, the Harba Kiosk, is also available to use. This self-service terminal allows non-members to use their credit card to pay for the use of the marina facilities. Similar to the Harba app for members, non-members will receive a PIN code from the Harba kiosk via email or SMS which they can then input into the ACT365 readers.
