Centaman has installed IDEMIA MorphoWave biometric readers and EasyGate SPT entrance gates at 100 Mount St in North Sydney.

The tallest building in North Sydney, 100 Mount Street is a premium grade office tower completed in May 2019. The 35-storey office tower has panoramic views of Sydney Harbor, Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour, and is occupied by some of Sydney’s best-known companies.

This high traffic location required a convenient and secure way to ensure a controlled access for the 2000 people entering the building daily, while maintaining the aesthetics of the 8m lobby ceiling. To efficiently control access to the building, the security contractor supplied top quality COMINFO EasyGate SPT entrance control gates equipped with IDEMIA’s MorphoWave Compact high-end biometric contactless devices.

COMINFO is an experienced word leading manufacturer of turnstiles and speedgates and its EasyGate SPT models are equipped with the latest magnetic direct drive mechanisms, needing no gearbox, oil, or brushes. EasytGate SPT features advanced infrared optical sensors which ensure safe passage and detect tailgating and cross-over, to ensure that only authorized people can pass through the gates.

Meanwhile, MorphoWave Compact is the flagship biometric device for physical access control from IDEMIA. The terminal performs a 3D scan and verification of 4 fingerprints in less than 1 second, in a quick and easy touchless wave gesture. These features make the product particularly well-suited for such high traffic locations with the capability to authenticate up to 50 people per minute thanks to advanced algorithms based on artifical intelligence.

COMINFO carried out an aesthetical integration of MorphoWave Compact into EasyGate SPT, resulting into a powerful solution that brings the latest physical access control system using only a simple wave of a hand. This project was deployed by CENTAMAN, COMINFO’s partner for Australia/New Zealand.
