Inner Range integration

Integriti users given access to TBS biometrics credentials

Integriti, Inner Range’s award-winning access control system, can now use a range of biometric credentials from Touchless Biometric Systems AG (TBS).

Biometrics can be assigned to synchronised Integriti users courtesy of a connected USB ‘enrolment station’.

TBS biometric readers, which provide a triple layer of template and data encryption, offer touchless, 3D-Multiview finger scans, multispectral scans for rough environments, plus iris, optical and capacitive sensors to confirm user credentials.

“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,” said Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range. “In lower risk applications, biometrics may make it easier for users too because they don’t have to remember a smartcard or PIN number to gain the access they need.

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

Philippe Niederhauser, head of sales for TBS, said: “The push for digitalisation of all kinds of processes is pulling for seamless integration. We are extremely proud that Inner Range has decided to work with TBS.

“We see here a perfect synergy: Inner Range’s Integriti offers scalability and ease of use and TBS enhances these with unique biometric security features.”

Integriti provides integrated security, access control and building automation for small sites, enterprises customers and everything in between. The platform won the award for best access control software at the Benchmark Magazine Innovation Awards 2018.

Other recent integrations include Tattile’s flagship ANPR system Vega Smart HD/2HD, while partitioned systems and a new evidence vault with cryptographic fingerprinting were among a number of improvements introduced to Integriti by a recent upgrade.

Inner Range, which was founded in Australia in 1998, develops intelligent, integrated access control and intruder detection systems both for the entry-level market as well as enterprise organisations. The company also develops highly encrypted end-to-end solutions for government, military and critical national infrastructure.

Founded in Switzerland in 2003 TBS has a global reseller network of 100 plus security companies. Clients include Allegion, Honeywell, Kaba and Siemens, while TBS readers are integrated with Nedap and Lenel controllers.
