ievo™ has been reviewed in this month’s independent test publication Benchmark Magazine, the only product test assessment relating to security systems on the market at the moment. The ievo Ultimate™ reader was called by Benchmark’s editor Pete Conway to be tested alongside three other fingerprint readers for their special biometric feature. The edition has been split into two parts, with the first focusing on design and functionality.
ievo Ultimate™ scored 82% for product design and 80% for features and functions. The written analysis of the test reflected ievo™’s ethos which has been achieved by listening to both customers and current integrators which makes up the foundation of the Ievo product range.
The review congratulated the fact that the Ultimate™ fingerprint reader itself holds no connections or relays which has been a magnificent advantage to the product. Many competitive biometric readers out there can be easily compromised because relays can be crossed or removed which could potentially open the ‘secured’ door. ievo™ overcame this issue by listening to security providers, integrators and installers at the beginning of the design process. They made it clear from the outset that they were worried about unwanted intruders if the relays became compromised. ievo™ solved this problem by housing the relays five metres away on the inside of the door.
Benchmark also stated that this is coupled with its vandal resistant IP65 rated exterior enhancing its robustness.
“The reader is billed as vandal resistant, and has an IP65 rating, making it ideal for external siting…in order to prevent access via tampering, the reader itself does not contain any connections or relays. Instead sealed cables link the unit to a connection box”
The renowned multi-spectral imaging sensor used in ievo™ products was also mentioned as indeed able to scan through the likes of dirt, dry and moisture laden fingerprints, another reason why ievo™ integrators; Paxton, ACT, BSB, Inner-Range, Argus Global and Nortech associate themselves with this product.
Managing director of ievo™ Shaun Oakes spoke after reading the review insisting, “We are very pleased with the assessment so far. It reflects well upon our company ethos of ‘biometric evolution’ giving our customers only the best, by listening to them and implementing it into our products. We look forward to the second half of the review which is to be published in next month’s edition”
