PalmID® Access Control
Redrock Biometrics’ innovative PalmID solution is rapidly gaining market acceptance and adoption by organizations in a wide range of industries. Replaces RFID and NFC cards with palm biometrics.
How It Works
Currently companies are using RFID and NFC cards for access control. The problem is the are not secure: they can be stolen or willingly passed by owner to another person. Additionally, their maintenance is costly. Biometrics is the best solution for access control. The question becomes which biometric modality is best? Facial biometrics is considered as “privacy-invasive” (used for surveillance) and fingerprint sensors transfer germs. Palm biometrics is the ideal biometric modality for making access control friendly, secure, and contactless.
Powerful And Flexible
PalmID-X’s speed and flexibility stem from two key features:
Contactless (Unlike Fingerprints)
Sensitive to Privacy Concerns (cannot be Used for Surveillance, Unlike Facial)
No Skin-Tone, Age, or Gender Biases
Can Serve Larger Groups of People Than Other Biometric Modalities
A XXI century replacement for paper logbooks. PalmID SaaS is a cloud service for palm-based biometrics using a visible light (VL) camera, or an infrared (IR) camera, or a combination of the two (VL+IR). A simple API allows phones, tablets, and PCs with cameras (including Windows Hello VL+IR modules) to be used as biometric scanning devices. A controlled lighting environment significantly improves consistency of the matching results. VL scan provides and estimated 100X better accuracy than an IR scan; using a combined VL+IR scanners produces an unmatched accuracy in the range of 1 per 1 trillion.
