Kantech EntraPass Integrates With StoneLock GO for Contactless Biometric Access Control
Johnson Controls says combining StoneLock GO with Kantech EntraPass security management software offers a completely contactless, universally compatible technology.
MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls, a global leader for smart and sustainable buildings and the architect of OpenBlue digital platforms, announces the integration of Tyco Kantech EntraPass and StoneLock GO for opt-in “faceless” recognition, said to be designed to protect users by safeguarding their privacy without the use of photographs, while eliminating the need to physically touch the reader.
Combining StoneLock GO with Kantech EntraPass security management software offers a completely contactless, universally compatible technology — regardless of gender, race or age — that is easily deployed and significantly reduces operational efforts, according to the company.
Johnson Controls says this integration will satisfy even the most stringent security protocols and will assist in mitigating threats from vulnerabilities such as weak PINs and code sharing, as well risks from surface contamination.
While an access card or password is susceptible to theft or cloning, StoneLock GO is said to offer anti-spoofing and best-in-class false acceptance rate. This method of authentication ensures the people accessing facilities have been granted permission.
Using state-of-the-art, near infrared sensors, StoneLock GO readers scan and store unique templates of enrolled users that are recognizable outside of the StoneLock System. The integration with EntraPass will provide a solution well-suited for high security access control where reliable identity confirmation of user access is required.
This purpose-built integration offers biometric rejections and other events natively available in EntraPass, such as forced door entries, enabling better situational awareness and offering a holistic report of what happens at the door.
