Stephen Thompson, Export Sales Manager for ievo Ltd commented, “This the third time we have supported Smart SD’s security event and are looking forward to meeting a variety of existing and potential customers. We also use the time to talk to manufacturers of different security equipment and discuss integration opportunities.”
He added: “We will be displaying our range of biometric fingerprint readers, which are used as part of access control systems for organisations worldwide. The ievo ultimate™, ievo micro™ and ievo desktop registration units as well as our upgraded REV4 control unit are already drawing attention from industry experts, security integrators, installers and end users. They utilise some of the most advanced image capturing techniques and technologies to ensure positive identification, increasing safety and reliability of the access system whilst also increasing efficiency for the end user.”
“An ever-greater focus is being placed on perimeter safety, in particular, physical access systems, which are used to protect businesses, government buildings, leisure facilities and many other sites around the world. We are seeing an increase in sales not only in the UK but also across Europe, Africa and the UAE, with the biometric market expected to reach a value of $1.83 billion by 2024.
“SST2017 is the perfect event to demonstrate the efficiency, safety and reliability of our products to a mix of new and current European clients at an event that encourages innovation. Biometric readers are now becoming the norm, where access systems that previously relied on swipe cards or numeric pin entry are becoming ‘old hat’ as these secondary credentials can be passed around or lost. Biometric security systems bypass those downfalls as they can’t be faked or shared. We are looking forward to showcasing our products and meeting some new faces.”
