Biometric access control is becoming a necessity for businesses and establishments both big and small. With the global biometric technology market reaching an estimated $34.5 billion by 2022, the industry shows no signs of slowing down.

Biometric solutions serve many different markets including industrial and enterprise access, time & attendance management, and smart home automation. They replace antiquated methods of entry such as keys, cards, fobs and PINs, as well as outdated punch cards for employee payroll. Invixium has taken care to craft each product to cater to the unique demands of multiple markets.

This article will highlight which Invixium devices are best suited for different applications. Whether you’re a tech evangelist looking for the latest and greatest gadgets, a consultant on the hunt for a modern security solution, or a smart home owner that’s interested in automation, you’ve come to the perfect place. Our biometric solutions are Made in Canada and put through intensive quality testing and countless meticulous inspections to make sure that every device we send out the door gets the IXM stamp of approval.

PRELIMINARY CONSIDERATIONS

Invixium products require professional installation and are not a Do-It-Yourself project. If you require assistance finding an installer for your region, please contact us and we will be happy to connect you with a certified professional. It’s also important to note that our products are meant to work in conjunction with electric strikes or magnetic locks for door access.

All of our devices are appropriate for indoor and outdoor operation, but in the case of an outdoor installation we advise on the following requirements:

  • For outdoor installs with direct exposure to sunlight, rain, or snow, an overhang for the product will be required.
  • The Lumidigm sensor is recommended for all outdoor installations, available on the SENSE and TOUCH.
  • If the device is frozen, do not attempt to power up. Allow the product to reach room temperature prior to applying power.
  • In colder temperatures, go ahead with the install when the device is at room temperature. Once powered on, the device will generate its own internal heat to continue running even in below freezing temperatures (rated to -20°C).
  • Our current products have been tested to comply with the industry rating of IP65, which means that they are resistant against dust and water ingress when factory sealed.

Industrial Complexes

The SENSE L is the perfect option for installations where the user population has problematic fingers due to dirt, chemicals, genetics, age or environmental conditions which may cause issues. The Lumidigm sensor utilizes multispectral imaging to provide the most accurate result every time. This is the process of reading not only the fingerprint on the surface level of the skin, but also reading subsurface fingerprints deep inside the epidermis. Thanks to this technology, cuts, dirt, water, and just about anything else will not obstruct the sensor from being able to authenticate and grant access to employees and other users.

Tough, rugged environments such as industrial complexes, manufacturing facilities, and construction zones require sophisticated solutions that can withstand a harsh surrounding. Thankfully the SENSE is IP65 rated which means that it’s durable enough to withstand rain, wind, snow, and dirt. Whether it’s stuck in -20° C to +60° C, you can always depend on the SENSE to deliver reliable and durable access control.

Smart Home

Smart home owners looking for secure, reliable biometric access control can count on the SENSE L. Its ability to read problematic fingerprints due to age, genetics, environments and withstand outdoor climates such as rain, wind, and snow make it our go-to for outdoor installs. The Lumidigm sensor uses multispectral imaging to scan not only the surface level fingerprint but subsurface prints as well, giving it the ability to give accurate results even with wet, dirty, or damaged fingers. This means that you’ll still be able to easily authenticate even after working in the garden all day or if you get caught in the rain.

The SENSE L is Control4 SDDP compliant allowing for quick and easy setup. You can access up-to-date drivers through Control4‘s Composer software, or by request from support@invixium.com.

Our clever integration with Control4 allows it all to become your reality.

Administrators are also able to grant restricted access to certain users in the event that they have short staying guests or maintenance crews that are coming into the house regularly. As an example, your maid can be enrolled to unlock the front door but have restricted access inside the house to prevent her from entering sensitive areas. Similarly, short staying guests can be given temporary PINs that conveniently lets them into the guest house for a set amount of time. After the expiry date, the PIN will no longer work and a new PIN would have to be provided.

Use for entrances, home office, wine cellar, gym, and closets.
