AUSTRALIAN designed and manufactured biometric wireless security products are generating interest in Europe.
Microlatch’s wireless fingerprint products incorporate biometrics technology to create security solutions for residential and small businesses.
Microlatch CEO Chris Burke said while concerns about complexity and operational issues have hampered the interest in biometrics for small commercial applications, this is what spurred Microlatch.
“We identified the potential of this substantial market segment, and created a product that is ideally suited from the viewpoints of installation, operation, management, security and simplicity in comparison to issuance and use of existing cards or physical keys,” he said.
Microlatch’s wireless fingerprint keyfob is one such product, using fingerprint identification for a range of security applications such as access to buildings, machines, specialist applications and as computer logons.
Burke said the “less security conscious Australian landscape” was the primary challenge the company faced.
