BlueVault, a maximum-security storage facility, has installed Fujitsu Frontech North America’s PalmEntry Physical Access Control system at its facility in San Diego.
The PalmEntry system involves contactless biometric palm scans to authenticate an individual and allow them access to a location. Fujitsu’s technology has vein sensors that use a near-infrared light to capture the pattern of veins within a palm and match it to a pre-registered user. This vascular pattern recognition system only works if blood is flowing through the veins.
Fujitsu says that user registration can be completed in less than a minute, and the authentication process takes less than a second.
BlueVault plans on opening three more locations in Southern California within the next year, and it will implement the PalmEntry system at all of them.
