Self-storage facility installs biometric security solution
TORONTO, Aug. 14 /CNW/ - Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider of
enterprise access control technology, today announced that Storage King
Tyseley, Birmingham, is using Bioscrypt's fingerprint reader to introduce an
unprecedented level of security to its storage facilities.
Bioscrypt's V-Station reader is an integral part of a new security

the facility, they must enter PIN codes to gain access to other parts of the
facility - PINs that are associated with the fingerprint template registered
with Storage King Tyseley and used at the front gate. An alarm will go off in
reception if users enter a PIN code without first scanning their finger at the
gate. A PIN code is also required to leave the site.

Tyseley believes the multi-factor authentication system will pay for itself
within a year. Customers access the Bioscrypt V-Station reader contained in a
weather proof and vandal-resistant, Bioscrypt V-Cerco enclosure using a fob
key and then enter a PIN code and scan their fingers in order to enter the

can be designed to meet the needs of a wide range of industries, including the
