The DSV Park | Gauteng site – situated near OR Tambo International Airport, comprises a logistics warehouse of 79 000 m², a cross-dock facility of 39 000 m² and office space of 10 000 m².
At DSV Park IDtek is installing electronic security systems from Idemia – their new MorphoWave Compact alongside Sigma fingerprint readers on an Impro access control platform – together with a Milestone video management system using Axis cameras. The client considered adding the Morphowave Compact device in areas of high traffic. The MorphoWave Compact acquires four fingers in 3D for maximum accuracy, with one pass of the hand over the sensor. This ergonomic touchless solution delivers an unmatched combination of security, convenience and throughput. MorphoWave Compact’s reduced size comes with an IP65 rating and a rich feature set that includes time & attendance functions. Now DSV can ensure a frictionless access experience for authorized users… with a simple wave of their hand.
Idemia uses these kinds of solutions all over the world and has won the Security Industry New Product Award for 2 years running with its same Morphwave product and more recently for its Visionpass facial recognition technology.
Nancy Schroeder – of IDtek – points out that the international access control market is estimated to surge from $8.6 billion in 2020 to $12.8 billion by 2025, at a CAGR growth of 8.2 percent. And that the global contactless biometrics technology market is forecast to near $18.6 billion by 2026, at a market growth of 19.1 percent CAGR. “South African logistics companies embrace the heightened security of biometric devices and the convenience of using this technology as well. This aspect together with licence plate recognition from Milestone Video Systems protects the client and their facilities in many respects and is in keeping with the first world leading edge nature of the facility.” Nancy notes further that with the Idemia suite of products – “clients can choose from the various different biometric options (for instance fingerprint matching or face recognition) based on their specific application and since all these products run on the same software platform there is no additional software. This is the same software platform that IDtek has been using for years – so there is no need for customisation of software and implementation risk is limited. Hence – the next trend in the industry will be towards multimodal biometrics and/or using different biometric readers on the same site based on the application.”
