Minerva Security Services of Essex have been at the forefront of a high profile biometrics installation at UBM Plc’s UK headquarters in London, at the height of organising the International Fire & Security Exhibition 2012.
Organisers of IFSEC 2012, UBM required four ievo™ fingerprint readers, two Ultimate™ and two Micro™. The Ultimate™’s are used to secure the building’s entrance & exit turnstiles and is fixed on to a turnstile which will be used by visitors. Micro™ will be responsible for securing the 9th floor office area inside the UBM premises, and will be installed on the main area door to grant access & egress to employees & visitors in that particular department.
Minerva Security chose the Ultimate™ biometric reader for the main building’s entrance due to its robust exterior and renowned capabilities. “We wanted to provide UBM with the most practical solution and since their building required enhanced biometric access control, we researched an external fingerprint reader that would be unaffected by the elements, ievo Ultimate™ is able to do just this. The system is able to function in the harshest weather conditions therefore it fit the criteria perfectly”
“The compact and reliable Micro™ reader is installed snugly within the building. Using Paxton’s market leading access control board, Net 2, it is able to secure a main office area. We really have provided UBM with the most efficient security package with ievo™” says John Moran, Operations Director from Minerva Security.
ievo™ Managing Director Shaun Oakes comments that, “This is the first ievo™ install with Minerva Security and they have done an excellent job of providing first class support to UBM. They were able to really hone in on their needs and thus provided UBM with a complementary ievo™ biometric system.”
ievo™ will be exhibiting both fingerprint readers; Ultimate™ and Micro™ at this year’s IFSEC event at the NEC in Birmingham from the 14th-17th May. To follow live updates from the show visit ievo™’s Twitter account.
