ZKTECO USA integrates STiD Mobile ID for Advanced Contactless Access Control Offering

ATLANTA, Ga. -- STid announced today that ZKTecoUSA has integrated the STiD Mobile ID® application with ZKTecoUSA's ZKey mobile credential app for a more comprehensive, advanced contactless access control offering. The combined, enhanced mobile application offers four unique modes for contactless identification to ensure users have multiple options to meet their individual needs and preferences in addition to secure and dynamic QR code support.

STid's Mobile ID is currently compatible with ZKTecoUSA's Atlas and Pro series access control panels and will be integrated into many other hardware and software solutions from ZKTecoUSA moving forward.

STid's Mobile ID simplifies managing and issued cards by using virtual cards on smartphones that can be used with or without conventional cards. Virtual access cards can be stored on STid Mobile ID App, for Android or iOS, available free of charge in app stores, for near instant issuing of credentials.

The four unique modes include:

* Badge mode: smartphone or wearable is presented like a convention access card

* Slide mode: hand becomes the access card

* Tap Tap mode: double tap the smartphone in a pocket for access

* Hands-free mode: ID is automatically detected

Hosted on the cloud or on-premises, STid's Mobile ID offers managers ease of use with multi-user or multi-site options and quick, easy management of virtual cards.

"Integrating with STid has allowed us to provide solutions for our customers that were not able to be previously met," said Prata Khadilkar, marketing manager, ZKTecoUSA. "Advanced features like Pocket & Wave mode allow us to stay ahead of the trends in the access control world. We have even been able to integrate the credentials into our existing ZKey mobile credential app already supporting our secure & dynamic QR codes for truly contactless access."

The new mobile application is available for use with the ZKTecoUSA Atlas Access Control Panel, which features an easy-to-use interface with fingerprint reader to ensure building managers can control and grant access to only those users who are authorized and supports both Wiegand & OSDP protocols. Mobile ID is also available with the popular Pro series tripod turnstiles for indoor environments.

STid's Mobile ID will also be added into ZKTecoUSA's BioSecurity software and solutions for a direct connection to create and send credentials to the users, Cielo 365 cloud solution and Atlas 360 hybrid-cloud solution later this year. Multiple ZKTecoUSA hardware kits will include an STid Mobile ID option moving forward.

"We're happy to combine strengths and expertise with another industry leader to deliver the best solutions to end users," said Frederick Trujillo, U.S. Director of Operations, STid. "Our Mobile ID operates worldwide with any other open solutions and offers the widest range of usage options to ensure adoption. We look forward to expanding our relationship with ZkTecoUSA to deliver more innovation access control solutions."

Securitronics Meets Rochester Regional Health’s Sensitive Security Through ZKTeco USA’s Touchless Biometric Access Control

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Rochester Regional Health needed to enhance security at key health system facilities throughout Western New York. Securitronics, a security company specializing in the provision of intelligent, technologically empowered security systems was contacted for this project. In turn, Securitronics connected with ZKTeco USA to deploy a new state-of-the art access control solution using SpeedFace, a multi-functional, touchless standalone access control reader with facial and palm vein recognition.

Securitronics has installed these readers at various other facilities spread across multiple industries with great success, so it was pleased to help Rochester Regional to optimize its security while avoiding an overbearing or unwelcoming experience for staff and patients.

SpeedFace's contact-less capabilities have proven transformative in healthcare environments. Practitioners, nurses, support staff and administrative personnel often have their hands full with pushing wheelchairs, carrying trays of medical supplies or transporting sensitive equipment around facilities. But SpeedFace's hands-free, facial and palm vein recognition reading capabilities ensure that unencumbered door access can be gained with ease. This is essential in situations such as medical emergencies, where there is no time to waste looking for keys or access cards.

So, how does the technology work? SpeedFace is a fast-matching and highly accurate facial recognition platform, designed for indoor and outdoor use. It can store and match up to 50,000 face templates and 5000 palm vein templates, and within a second of recognizing a faculty member or patient's face, doors are immediately unlocked. Further, it's a multi-layered biometric access control solution that combines recognition technologies - face and palm vein identification - with body temperature and/or mask detection. It also has relay contacts for controlling the door locks and Wiegand and OSDP output to interface with third party access control systems as well.

This additional capability reinforces traditional security measures while maintaining COVID-19 sanitized environments - something essential in a healthcare context. SpeedFace not only met the health system's tiered security criteria, it did so while improving ease of movement around facilities and managing deployment costs.

ZKTeco USA's SpeedFace readers have met Rochester Regional Health's goals and Securitronics reports that the health system has found the solution to be straightforward and logical and its successful expansion of the existing access control system. Through SpeedFace, Rochester Regional now has greater peace of mind, confident in the knowledge that only authorized staff can gain access to security-sensitive areas.

Terry Rivet, President and CEO, Securitronics, said, "The client has found the solution to be easy to use, budget friendly and the expansion of biometrics into their existing access control system to be a valuable investment that will warrant continued expansion of their technology."

Manish Dalal, President and Founder, ZKTECO USA said, "We have been working with Securitronics since last 7+ years and have always met the unique security challenges posed to us from time to time by their customers with our huge biometric hardware and software portfolio."

ZKTeco USA Announces Partnership with V-Authenticate

FAIRFIELD, N.J. -- ZKTeco USA, a leading provider of biometric and RFID security solutions, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with V-Authenticate, an independently owned software developer primarily known for their next-generation visitor management software called VAMS (Visitor Authentication and Management System).

ZK VAMS is currently implemented in over 1,000 locations representing over 350 customers located in 13 countries across the world. VAMS is used by many Fortune 500 companies representing several vertical markets including commercial & residential property management, banking, consumer product manufacturing, logistics, healthcare and education, to name a few.

VAMS software uniquely incorporates visitor AUTHENTICATION. Whereas traditional visitor management solutions allow the visitors to display any ID credential they chose (i.e. driver's license, passport, etc.), VAMS requires the visitor to prove their identity by displaying on their phone a QR code or an OTP (One Time Password) sent from the visitor's "host" via text message or e-mail. VAMS prevents imposters and unauthorized users from gaining fraudulent access to a facility.

As noted by ZKTeco USA President & Founder Manish Dalal, "While we see incredible increases in security product expenditures, it concerns me greatly also seeing customers neglect their visitor management strategy. Regardless how much time and money you spend fortify your building, your investment is wasted if you cannot safely and efficiently inspect and track visitors. We've adopted the VAMS software to address this important void in the market."

V-Authenticate CEO Nikhil Kothary added "We've seen tremendous adoption of our VAMS software by end-users. By partnering with ZKTeco, we additionally gain access to the thousands of physical & logical security installers currently partnering with ZKTeco. VAMS is very affordable and I'm confident will do well in ZKTeco's sales channel."
