Inner Range outlines integration project with Swiss biometrics firm TBS

Access control solutions manufacturer Inner Range has announced a new integration with Swiss firm Touchless Biometric Systems AG (TBS). Now, end users of Inner Range’s intelligent access control system Integriti can use a range of biometric credentials via TBS. A connected USB ‘enrolment station’ allows biometrics to be assigned to synchronised Integriti users.

TBS offers one of the widest selections of biometric readers for all applications, all with a triple layer of template and data encryption. The company’s portfolio includes touchless, 3D-Multiview finger scan, multi-spectral for rough environments, iris, optical and capacitive sensors to confirm a specific end user’s credentials.

Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range, said: “Biometrics offer an extra layer of security for clients by providing unique credentials for each user and reducing the risk of credential theft or cloning. In lower risk applications, biometrics may make it easier for users because they don’t have to remember a smart card or PIN number to gain the access they need.”

Northwood added: “We were impressed with TBS’ products and the way in which the firm’s biometric scanners and readers can be integrated to access control systems of all sizes and complexities. We’re confident that this new integration will be of significant interest for new and existing clients.”

Philippe Niederhauser, head of sales for TBS, responded: “The push for digitalisation of all kinds of processes is pulling for seamless integration. We’re extremely proud that Inner Range has decided to work with TBS. We see a perfect synergy. Inner Range’s Integriti offers scalability and ease of use, while TBS enhances this with unique biometric security features.”

Inner Range’s Integriti delivers an intelligent integrated security solution that’s ideal for managing and controlling single and multiple sites at the local, national and global levels. Integration with a wide range of third party systems turns Integriti into a complete security management system capable of managing not only security and building automation, but also people and business continuity processes such as Human Resources, payroll and Health and Safety-related matters.

Integriti’s advanced reporting functionality also enables organisations to gain valuable insight and evidence for business improvement and other core business functions.
