Choosing an access control system is an important financial decision for most companies. The cost is of course important, but the system also needs to match your requirements and be completely reliable.

Paxton Access specialise in access control solutions. Paxton’s development team are focused on designing systems that are fit for their purpose, containing the important features that are necessary for well-run organisations. Our commitment has resulted in our products winning a reputation for reliability and ease of use.

Implementing an access control system can feel like a big change in company practice. The access control should give the benefit of additional security without requiring time-consuming administration. Paxton Access systems are intuitive and straightforward to administer. The increased security is a benefit to all, rather than a benefit for some and a headache for those who have to administer it.

No keys or codes. Just your finger.

ievo® currently manufactures two superior fingerprint biometric readers; ultimate™ and micro™ which can be used together to create your perfect internal and external security plan, or separately to boost access control in your business, home or project. Using unrivalled multi-spectral imaging technology for the fingerprint sensor and a robust algorithm to generate a template, ievo® products are the most reliable and effective on the market.

Through using the most reliable multi-spectral imaging fingerprint scanner, both of the ievo® products ultimate™ and micro™ have the capacity to provide you with an effective security system. Each of the products specifications differ depending on internal and external use, but each boast similar security features which are completely unrivalled.

The ievo® fingerprint readers look for specific traits such as the difference in light passing through the sensor and the presence or absence of blood being shown in the fingers when presented to the fingerprint sensor. From this, the ievo®fingerprint software gives the fingerprint a unique score, which, if above the set spoof detection level, the individual will not be granted access.

Uniquely, the activation level can be set to certain thresholds which differ for each application. The ievo® reader has so far secured an abundance of high security projects including Embassies and National banks. This provides the business owner with peace of mind that the room or door secured byievo® is protected to the highest possible standard.

Both ievo ultimate™ and micro™ are able to correctly identify a registered fingerprint with levels of certain substances present on the skin, as well as some types of latex gloves worn by the user. The ultimate™ is able to withstand a greater variety of materials including levels of dust, dirt, oil, powder, cream, and liquid. The ultimate™ is also complemented with a heater built into the fingerprint scanner, therefore it is perfect for external harsh environments such as rain, freezing temperatures and snow. Similarly, the micro™ functions with levels of cream or powder present on the skin, however it is designed for low use internal environments. Both biometric readers complement each other, so depending on your installation requirements, you are sure to find a solution with ievo®.
