Gym chain deploys iris recognition-based access control system

Leave a Comment

A gym chain in Iceland has decided to deploy an advanced iris recognition access control system across its facilities in order to better manage and streamline the access of their 40,000 members, a news report has been able to suggest.

Iris recognition is an authentication process in which the random iris patterns of a person are analyzed. These patterns are captured using digital cameras and illumination by near infrared technique. Iris biometric recognition has several advantages such as high accuracy and time performance of the technology.

In a statement announcing the deployment, World Class Iceland managing director Bjorn Leifsson said the system “has worked perfectly,” adding that fewer staff are needed to monitor facility entrances, while the gyms now offer “a higher degree of security and have happier customers.” The same technology will be introduced in new World Class Iceland facilities as they open.
