Bosch and IDEMIA Partner together in a global integration with a range of biometric solutions.

Bosch Building Technologies, a global leader in the security market, announced a global partnership with IDEMIA, a leader in Augmented Identity, adding a reliable biometric layer to access control. Biometrics, based on personal, physiological, unforgeable characteristics, provides the highest degree of certainty that is a genuine authorized employee.

Bosch Building Technologies offers a reliable software solution that manages different Bosch security subsystems like access control, video surveillance, fire alarm, public address, and intrusion systems on one single platform, the Bosch Building Integration System (BIS). 

Bosch has integrated Idemia’s range of biometric devices into the Bosch Building Integration System (BIS).

The MorphoWaveTM is a terminal capable of scanning and verifying 4 fingerprints in less than 1 second through wave movement of the hand. The VisionPass is an advanced facial recognition terminal that combines 2D, 3D, and infrared cameras with facial algorithms. The Sigma Lite Series is a range of entry-level, touchless fingerprint terminals.

These terminals combine high biometric accuracy, speed, and convenience with a fully touchless user experience. They operate efficiently with sanitary masks and are therefore well adapted for Covid-prevention policies.

“Bosch stands for quality and reliability. We want to offer innovative and fascinating solutions, as our slogan ‘invented for life’ states. When our customers are going to deploy biometric terminals for their security, they will be installed for years so we want to offer them the best option”, explains Gregor Schlechtriem, Senior Vice President Bosch Building Technologies Business Unit Access & Intrusion. “Idemia is therefore for us the right partner because of their technological expertise and field-proven quality and performances”, Schlechtriem continues.

“We are delighted to start this global partnership with Bosch”, comments Yves Portalier, EVP Biometric Devices, and Automotive at Idemia. “The combination of our biometric devices with the BIS platform will be a strong offering for companies looking for a high level of security and user convenience.”
