Safe Deposit Boxes

Reduced costs and increased competitiveness

Value Propositions

Safe deposit boxes for corporations and individuals come in many forms - from document safes and gun racks to hotels safe and bank safe deposit boxes. Reliable biometric user authentication can significantly improve the convenience and security for operating safes.

The NEXT embedded module has a small form factor for easy hardware integration. It includes the robust NEXT area sensor that is intuitive to operate and an embedded algorithm that is highly accurate. Fingerprint authentication takes less than 1 second, which is faster than comparable PIN entry solutions. The module can store 2,000 fingerprints and typically process more than 10,000 authentications before its batteries require replacement. 

All of these advantages come at a highly competitive cost compared to alternative solutions.

Top 5 Keys to Mass Market Success

  1. Size of sensor active area (intuitive and tolerant touch sensor - 201 mm2)
  2. Quality of embedded algorithm (accurate and fast authentication)
  3. Good ergonomic design (allows consistent placement of finger)
  4. Long battery life ( > 10,000 authentications) 
  5. Cost efficiency (affordable embedded module with area sensor )
