New Office Building in East Yorkshire Chooses ievo Biometric Readers with Lumidigm Advantage

The £4.5m (US$6.7 million) Allam Marine office building, within East Yorkshire, has chosen ievo biometric fingerprint readers that leverage Lumidigm multispectral imaging sensors to control the building’s access. Biometric access control was the essential choice for this high-profile office building as Allam Marine needed a particular finish for the door access system with a specific set of access requirements. The ievo readers were easily able to meet these requirements with renowned reliability and a high-profile image, making them the overriding choice.

The install involved a Boon Edam Circlelock entrance that provided standard access, along with secondary opening actions from dedicated readers elsewhere in the building. One of the main benefits of the system is the ability to “latch” open the circle lock with full biometric accountability in the event of corporate, open days.

“Our requirements were complex, and we found a highly-suitable solution from ievo which answered all of our specific requirements,” says Martin Conley, IT manager at Allam Marine. “Since the installation, we have been extremely satisfied with the installation which has met our demands, and it is outperforming all of our initial expectations.”

The system is quite simple. The member registers their print upon joining the business. This print now acts as the identification method, replacing the traditional identification card. When members arrive at the office, they simply press their fingers onto the reader, and this opens the first door of the Circlelock. The Circlelock consists of two sliding doors, which open one after the other, creating an interlocking security booth. The access-control system is a bi-directional security door allowing entry and exit.

Allam Marine is just one of many high profile office buildings that have turned to biometrics for access control in the recent months. The difficultly of tracking cards due to staff losing or swapping cards, alongside their brittle nature, were two of the main reasons as to why the office site wanted to veer away from standard card access control. Allam Marine wanted a robust reader that would solve time and attendance issues and still provide top level security.

Other installs include two premiership football grounds and buildings within the Canary Warf area in London.
