Now, using an aptiQ reader, the iCAM 7000 series devices can also support aptiQmobile™ on an NFC-enabled phone as a mobile access control credential. All existing aptiQ smart card readers are compatible with the iCAM 7000 series for applications ranging from physical access systems in buildings to applications that track time and attendance, and other identity dependent applications.

Iris ID will demonstrate mobile credentials using aptiQmobile on a NFC capable smartphone at the ASIS conference, September 24-26, in booth #1422 at the McCormick Place, Chicago , IL. Charles Koo, President and CEO of Iris ID Systems Inc. said, “As an aptiQ alliance member we are excited to be part of this new implementation which allows iris technology to be coupled with aptiQ readers, credentials and aptiQmobile. This is a key milestone for our identification technology; iris recognition is a perfect solution for providing strong authentication for enterprise security. As we did with other credentials some years ago, we are pleased to be first in bringing iris recognition biometrics to a host of secure identity dependent access control applications with aptiQmobile.”
