Gorrie Regan has the expertise to provide you with the best in Smart Card and Biometric Access Control
SmartCard & Biometric Access Control:
Gorrie Regan's vendors experience with smart card applications goes back over 10 years. Their early development for telecommunications systems as well as their background with smart card access systems in Europe and military smart card access systems provides us with a unique perspective and practical knowledge regarding the use of smart cards for physical access control.
Gorrie Regan offers two smart card encoding modules. The Contactless Smart Card Programming enhancement module programs Mifare cards and uses smartMAX data format. The contactless programming module can also manage the storage of biometric templates for use in a variety of biometric verification applications.
The DESFire Contactless Smart Card Programming enhancement module provides the same functionality as the Contactless option but is enabled to support the advanced capabilities of the ISO 14443A DESFire smart cards. Encoding options for DESFire include smartMAX for our standard software; however our Homeland Security software for US government applications can support SEIWG-012 or FASC-N encoding.
Biometrics are best defined as measurable physiological and / or behavioral characteristics that can be used to verify the identity of an individual.
These include fingerprint, retinal and iris scanning, hand geometry, facial recognition and other techniques.
The value proposition for Biometric readers in access control is simple: a card can be duplicated or stolen, but a unique physiological characteristic cannot. Biometrics enable access control systems to ask not only, "What do you have?" and "What do you know?" but, "Who are you?"
As a result, biometrics are taking an increasingly prominent position as an additional access control solution in today's escalating requirements for physical security.
Fingerprint, retinal and iris scanning, hand geometry, facial recognition and other techniques are all available.
Systems are pre-integrated to allow quick and easy deployment and management of biometric options.
