C•CURE Go Reader Mobile App

The innovative C•CURE Go Reader mobile app extends the reach of your C•CURE 9000 system more powerfully than ever before. An inspired evolution of the C•CURE Go mobile app, C•CURE Go Reader lets you grant or deny access in even the most remote, disconnected areas such as construction sites, offline events and roaming security checkpoints.

ccure-go-reader

Using an Android device, C•CURE Go Reader pairs with a multi-technology read head to mimic a full-fledged iSTAR door, complete with schedules, clearances and holidays. As a virtual “door” in C•CURE 9000, C•CURE Go Reader inherits all clearances of an associated iSTAR door group, ensuring strict security even if you are far away from your nearest iSTAR controller.

C•CURE Go Reader provides peace of mind in many different situations:

  • Construction sites can be dangerous areas and, long before the walls of the buildings are built, security is compulsory.
  • Offsite events pose unique security challenges for companies who need to safeguard employees and visitors with limited physical boundaries.
  • Roaming security checkpoints allow your guards to spontaneously check access badges in hallways or near secured areas.
  • Roll calls are extremely important, to make sure employees have evacuated during emergency situations.
  • C•CURE Go Reader makes it easy to verify that employees have reached the designated areas during the emergency.

EyeLock nano NXT Advanced Iris Reader Integration with C•CURE 9000

High Security Made Simple

The integration of C•CURE 9000 security and event management system and EyeLock nano NXT biometric iris reader gives you powerful identity authentication and security capabilities for a complete biometric access control management system.Eyelock Integration

The integration with C•CURE 9000 allows cardholder names and card numbers setup in C•CURE 9000 to be seen in EyeLock Identity Suite so that this information does not have to be re-entered during the iris enrollment process. Once enrollment is complete, the information stays synced. The integration also allows for the intelligent distribution of iris templates to nano NXT iris readers and will only be stored on devices at doors that each cardholder has access to according to C•CURE 9000.

Unparalleled Efficiency

The nano NXT authenticates up to 20 people per minute, in-motion and at-a-distance with unparalleled accuracy. EyeLock’s advanced technology converts the unique characteristics of each iris into a complex encrypted code that maximizes security and minimizes breach potential. With a false accept rate of only 1 in 1.5 million for a single eye, EyeLock’s iris identity authentication ensures both unparalleled accuracy and security.

Software House Now Integrated with NEDAP AVI Vehicle/Driver Identification Readers

Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management solution is now integrated with NEDAP AVI vehicle and driver identification technology .

NEDAPWhen integrated with the C•CURE 9000, NEDAP AVI identification readers can identify vehicles and/or people from long-range distances, making the readers ideal for parking access applications, managing logistics and for weighing installations and mining safety applications. NEDAP AVI identification systems ensure that only vehicles with authorized drivers can access restricted areas while keeping traffic moving through access gates. Vehicles and their operators can be authorized for entry while their vehicles are still moving, and can be identified by the readers through closed windows, increasing passenger safety and overall efficiency.

“The NEDAP AVI identification solution is an integral component in our intelligent physical access control portfolio,” said Rafael Schrijvers, Access Control Product Marketing Manager, EMEA, Tyco Security Products. “With the integration of NEDAP AVI with C•CURE 9000, we offer the most convenient and secure solution for identifying vehicles and persons entering and exiting your protected area.”

NEDAPThe C•CURE 9000-integrated NEDAP AVI identification solution uses UHF tags that can be deployed as passive, battery-operated tags. The UHF tags can be read from distances up to 33 feet and use a circular polarized antenna to provide freedom of tag placement and orientation. NEDAP AVI’s license plate reader automatically reads number license plates and uses an all-in-one camera, analyzer and IR illuminator. The reader is embedded with onboard processing software that can be configured through a web interface and has a range of up to 19 feet. The NEDAP AVI reader supports a large range of IR-reflective license plates, including most European countries.

The NEDAP AVI readers feature easy installation and user set up and can be configured through a web interface.  An optional Wiegand Interface Module for the camera is also included.

TYCO SECURITY PRODUCTS ACQUIRES INNOMETRIKS

InnometriksTyco Security Products announced as of 13 May 2016, it has acquired substantially all of the assets of Innometriks and 2DogsStudios, developers of high assurance readers, software and mobile solutions for FIPS-201 (Federal Information Processing Standard) smart card credentials.

This acquisition strengthens Tyco Security Products’ position in the federal market by adding the Innometriks team’s open, seamless high-assurance solution integrated directly into Tyco Security Products’ Software House C•CURE 9000 access control and security management ecosystem, as well as enabling the ability to integrate with systems from other manufacturers. This is achieved with an open architecture that moves government credential authentication directly into the physical access panel, and leveraging OSDP (Open Supervised Device Protocol) capable readers. These combined technologies will become part of Tyco Security Products’ access control solution portfolio.

The combination of Tyco Security Products and Innometriks creates an offering that provides a fast, open, modular, and cost effective solution for high assurance needs.   The benefits of this acquisition not only extend to the government market, but also to commercial customers who require high assurance access control systems.  We are very excited to have the Innometriks and 2DogStudios become a part of our access control solutions and future roadmaps.
