Access Portal release

Touchless access control with biometrics

Access Portal software provides all the features needed to manage your access control site –
whether large or small.

In this release:

New hardware support: additional models of hardware from Suprema, HID, Impro and Hikvision have been integrated.

HID Mobile Access: enhanced functionality, including user deletion, has been implemented.

No touch solutions: the range of Idemia, Suprema and Hikvision facial readers are integrated with
Access Portal to enable:

  • Thermal sensing: set the temperature threshold through the software, to prevent access to
    individuals with elevated temperatures.
  • Face mask: ability to identify individuals without having to remove their face mask (device
    dependent).
  • Remote enrollment: in addition to on-device enrollment, some units provide the ability to
    upload user photographs for remote users.

Biometric capacity: this feature enables operators to quickly view the user capacity available on a
biometric device, to ensure there’s sufficient capacity.

In addition, the administrator can view the number of templates uploaded to each reader – great for
identifying a mismatch between the number of templates that should have been uploaded, versus
the amount actually uploaded for example, if there’s a corrupt template, saving time and user
inconvenience.

Messaging: graphic icons and messages have been incorporated to provide visual user feedback on
the Impro BMTA and MDTA, removing any language or literacy barriers.

Expiry reasons: this feature enables a variety of expiry reasons to be added to the system, for
example, a mandatory safety certificate, or annual checkup, and alerts the user on arrival of their
impending suspension unless rectified. This is available exclusively to Enterprise users.

Languages: Access Portal is available off-the-shelf in 9 languages (English, French, Spanish,
Portuguese, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Dutch, Greek and Bulgarian), with the added option of
custom languages where required.

OSDP: the new global open standard for access control is supported in Access Portal, in preparation
for Impro’s soon-to-be-launched OSDP products.
