IDEMIA has announced a global partnership with Bosch Building Technologies to tap the fast-growing biometric access control market.

To add a biometric layer to BIS, Bosch will offer IDEMIA’s flagship contactless biometric terminals including:

* MorphoWaveTM, the only terminal in the world capable of scanning and verifying 4 fingerprints in less than 1 second through a quick, simple and fully touchless wave movement of the hand

* VisionPass – said to be the most advanced facial recognition terminal combining 2D, 3D and infrared cameras with IDEMIA’s leading facial algorithms.

These terminals combine high biometric accuracy, speed and convenience with a touchless user experience. They operate efficiently with sanitary masks and are well adapted for COVID-prevention policies. IDEMIA terminals are already integrated with the BIS platform and with most gates and turnstile vendors.

“Bosch stands for quality and reliability,” said Gregor Schlechtriem, senior vice president, of Bosch Building Technologies Access & Intrusion. “We want to offer innovative and fascinating solutions, as our slogan ‘invented for life’ states.

“When our customers are going to deploy biometric terminals for their security, they will be installed for years so we want to offer them the best option – Idemia is the right partner because of their technology expertise and field-proven quality and performances.”
