Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies and Human Recognition Systems, a developer of biometric-based and other security technologies, has developed a biometric access control system that is controlled via VPN software on a 3G phone network, according to a Security Park article.
The new technology was developed as a solution for a housing refurbishment project that had a main compound located two miles away from an area that needed to be administered on the same biometric system.
In addition to the 3G technology offering remote operations, technical support can also be administered via a remote access link. The systems utilize hand geometry for access control as they are ideal for working with the poor samples and environment involved in construction.
