Developed and manufactured in Austria, the electronic locking system Xesar is an innovation from EVVA, offering companies a wide variety of products and application options. Thanks to Xesar release 2.2, EVVA is enhancing the functions of numerous smart features.

"The Xesar 2.2 update is a further, important step towards simple operation in the young history of Xesar", says Helmut Steiner, Xesar’s Product Manager at EVVA. Thanks to the new update, available to all EVVA electronic system partners since the beginning of December 2016, a range of highlights have now been added.

Xesar smart features

In response to the required flexibility and degree of individual characteristics, Xesar already offers a wide range and timeless design. Each door station is equipped with the right solution and in connection with the Xesar virtual network, users can always rely on an up-to-date and highly secure system. Thanks to the feedback from doors, users can immediately tell which doors remain insecure and still require updating.

Several systems, one installation

The virtual network shows the current security status in seconds on the dashboard to quickly make your Xesar system more secure

The most recent Xesar update provides an improved overview, user-friendly operation, as well as maintenance and the system is highly secure in any application. "The update makes handling significantly easier for administrators and end users. Firstly, it is now possible to manage several systems using only one installation and secondly, you can create different time profiles per user. Thirdly, we can now use several tablets per system", Steiner explains.

Increased transparency, convenience and security

EVVA also offers the virtual network as a product for purchasing. "Xesar with virtual network is unique in the electronic access systems market. Thanks to the maximum level of available and up-to-date data it is possible to obtain an overview of doors with outdated states that still require updating and blocked identification media that are still in circulation with only one click", Steiner explains. The virtual network must be additionally enabled using the Softwareplus card.

Xesar is developed and produced in Austria and offers companies a multitude of products and application areas as well as a timeless design. The virtual network shows the current security status in seconds on the dashboard to quickly make your Xesar system more secure.

"Security has never been as transparent and quick as with the new Xesar virtual network and Xesar 2.2. Automatic, real-time evaluation and many new features mean your facility is quickly up to date in terms of security”, Steiner adds in light of the functional enhancements.

What is the impact of lighting on video performance?
What is the impact of lighting on video performance?

Dark video images contain little or no information about the subject being surveilled. Absence of light can make it difficult to see a face, or to distinguish the color of clothing or of an automobile. Adding light to a scene is one solution, but there are also new technologies that empower modern video cameras to see better in any light. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: what impact does lighting have on the performance of video systems?

What are the security challenges of protecting the cannabis industry?

The advent of a truly new market for the physical security industry is a rare occurrence. Particularly rare is a new market that is both fast-growing and provides an environment that is not just conducive to application of physical security technologies but that actually demands it. Such is the case with the market for legalised marijuana. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: what are the security challenges of protecting the cannabis industry?

COVID-19 worries boost prospects of touchless biometric systems
COVID-19 worries boost prospects of touchless biometric systems

Spread of the novel coronavirus has jolted awareness of hygiene as it relates to touching surfaces such as keypads. No longer in favour are contact-based modalities including use of personal identification numbers (PINs) and keypads, and the shift has been sudden and long-term. Both customers and manufacturers were taken by surprise by this aspect of the virus’s impact and are therefore scrambling for solutions. Immediate impact of the change includes suspension of time and attendance systems that are touch-based. Some two-factor authentication systems are being downgraded to RFID-only, abandoning the keypad and/or biometric components that contributed to higher security, but are now unacceptable because they involve touching. Touchless biometric systems in demand The trend has translated into a sharp decline in purchase of touch modality and a sharp increase in the demand for touchless systems, says Alex Zarrabi, President of Touchless Biometrics Systems (TBS). Biometrics solutions are being affected unequally, depending on whether they involve touch sensing, he says. Spread of the novel coronavirus has jolted awareness of hygiene as it relates to touching surfaces such as keypads “Users do not want to touch anything anymore,” says Zarrabi. “From our company’s experience, we see it as a huge catalyst for touchless suppliers. We have projects being accelerated for touchless demand and have closed a number of large contracts very fast. I’m sure it’s true for anyone who is supplying touchless solutions.” Biometric systems are also seeing the addition of thermal sensors to measure body temperature in addition to the other sensors driving the system. Fingerscans and hybrid face systems TBS offers 2D and 3D systems, including both fingerscans and hybrid face/iris systems to provide touchless identification at access control points. Contactless and hygienic, the 2D Eye system is a hybrid system that combines the convenience of facial technology with the higher security of iris recognition. The system recognises the face and then detects the iris from the face image and zeros in to scan the iris. The user experiences the system as any other face recognition system. The facial aspect quickens the process, and the iris scan heightens accuracy. TBS also offers the 2D Eye Thermo system that combines face, iris and temperature measurement using a thermal sensor module. TBS's 2D Eye Thermo system combines face, iris and temperature measurement using a thermal sensor module Another TBS system is a 3D Touchless Fingerscan system that provides accuracy and tolerance, anti-spoofing, and is resilient to water, oil, dust and dirt. The 2D+ Multispectral for fingerprints combines 2D sensing with “multispectral” subsurface identification, which is resilient to contaminants and can read fingerprints that are oily, wet, dry or damaged – or even through a latex glove. In addition, the 3D+ system by TBS provides frictionless, no-contact readings even for people going through the system in a queue. The system fills the market gap for consent-based true on-the-fly systems, says Zarrabi. The system captures properties of the hand and has applications in the COVID environment, he says. The higher accuracy and security ratings are suitable for critical infrastructure applications, and there is no contact; the system is fully hygienic. Integration with access control systems Integration of TBS biometrics with a variety of third-party access control systems is easy. A “middleware” subsystem is connected to the network. Readers are connected to the subsystem and also to the corporate access control system. An interface with the TBS subsystem coordinates with the access control system. For example, a thermal camera used as part of the biometric reader can override the green light of the access control system if a high temperature (suggesting COVID-19 infection, for example) is detected. The enrollment process is convenient and flexible and can occur at an enrollment station or at an administration desk. Remote enrollment can also be accomplished using images from a CCTV camera. All templates are encrypted. Remotely enrolled employees can have access to any location they need within minutes. The 3D+ system by TBS provides frictionless, no-contact readings even for people going through the system in a queue Although there are other touchless technologies available, they cannot effectively replace biometrics, says Zarrabi. For example, a centrally managed system that uses a Bluetooth signal from a smart phone could provide convenience, is “touchless,” and could suffice for some sites. However, the system only confirms the presence and “identity” of a smart phone – not the person who should be carrying it. “There has been a lot of curiosity about touchless, but this change is strong, and there is fear of a possible second wave of COVID-19 or a return in two or three years,” says Zarrabi. “We really are seeing customers seriously shifting to touchless.”
