Virdi collaborates with Avigilon on biometric access

Seoul, Korea and Vancouver, Canada

Avigilon’s existing access control system, which includes card and mobile-based access, is well positioned to bring an additional layer of authentication to its customers with biometric reader integration.

Virdi International has developed a total access control solution in collaboration with Avigilon, that now allows Avigilon to offer a biometric alternative to the market. The solution incorporates Virdi readers and integration to the Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM) software.

According to Cory Bellamy, Virdi International Managing Director, Avigilon’s existing access control system, which includes card and mobile-based access, is well positioned to bring an additional layer of authentication to its customers with biometric reader integration. “Virdi International was asked by a number of its partners to develop technology that would allow integration into the Avigilon platform. Both Virdi card and biometric readers are now supported in this current solution.”

Virdi readers connect physically to Avigilon’s Mercury Controllers via RS485, using SIA OSDP secure protocol. The first release of the solution will support Virdi’s AC2000 and AC5000plus fingerprint card terminals, while future supported products that are considered include the AC1100, AC2100plus, and AC2200 access control terminals.

Bellamy points out that Virdi has developed Biometrics Enrollment Manager software that integrates into Avigilon’s ACM software. In addition to complementing the hardware integration, this will also allow users to easily add their biometric data to their identity credentials within the ACM software.

This total access control solution provides bi-directional communication and adds a further level of security for rapid and secure identity recognition in high-security areas. Virdi’s USB fingerprint readers can be connected to client machines for seamless enrollment and users can configure and manage biometric identities directly from Avigilon’s ACM software.
