|The KEES residential door lock combines accuracy of iris biometrics with ease of a push-pull handle for simple keyless access
Korea Technology and Communications (KT&C), a leading provider of high definition surveillance and security solutions, and SRI International recently announced the launch of KEES™, an iris recognition door lock powered by SRI’s Iris on the Move® (IOM) technology. The product, developed for the residential security market, debuts at ISC West 2015, held April 15-17, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Combines accuracy of iris biometrics with ease of push-pull handle
The KEES residential door lock combines the accuracy of iris biometrics with the ease of a push-pull handle for simple, keyless access at a glance—eliminating the need to fumble for keys, enter a PIN or put down the groceries. Traditional keypad-only door locks may recognise what has happened (i.e., a PIN code was entered), but do not confirm individual identity. The KEES lock brings the security and convenience of iris biometrics to multi-unit residential properties and apartment buildings.
“Building and property owners are increasingly challenged to deploy market-leading access control products and technology that do not place an undue burden on residents,” said H.S. Kwon, CEO, KT&C. “By creating a smart lock with SRI’s iris technology, we are able to extend a level of secure access previously reserved for business-critical and government facilities to the residential marketplace at a competitive price.”
“By collaborating with KT&C, we are incorporating leading iris biometric technology in a residential door lock for unparalleled convenience and security,” said Mark Clifton, president of the Products and Solutions Division at SRI International. “KEES marks a new level of access control for the residential sector. It demonstrates the growing viability of iris biometrics for more market applications.”
World Debut at ISC West 2015
