NAPCO Introduces Its New Innovative Indoor/Outdoor Gemini BioReader Keypad

Napco recently added its first ever indoor/outdoor biometric keypad to its innovative line of Gemini products. With the touch of a finger, end-users can integrate our BioReader keypad with most brands of alarm panels with a keyswitch or use it for standalone alarm and garage door access control. BioReader works with all Gemini and Express security systems (3 and 4-wire bus) and operates electric garage doors and lighting systems with ease. Users can arm/disarm the system and/or activate relay groups with the touch of a button and never have to worry again about losing their keys or memorizing complicated codes. Our optical biometric fingerprint reader eliminates code pass-along and ensures reliable use by those considered hard to print, such as consumers whose fingerprints are worn out such as manual laborers, elderly, etc. 3-way "live" finger detection verification thwarts use by imposters using photocopies or fake rubber impressions while anti-substitution prevents unauthorized keypad replacement.

Fingerprint enrollment and deletion takes approximately 5 seconds to complete. Once users are properly enrolled, their finger allows them entry into both residential and commercial properties. BioReader can also be used to control parking lot gates and restrict unauthorized personnel access to sensitive areas, files, pharmaceuticals, expensive equipment, weapons and more. Napco's BioReader is rugged, vandal-resistant and is made with durable alloy metals to withstand temperatures ranging from 14° to 122°F (-10° to 50°C). Among its many characteristics, BioReader includes a high-security biometric ambush feature that allows pre-selected buttons and your enrolled finger to silently call police during robberies. Should vandals attempt to rip the BioReader keypad from its building, an alarm will trip and alert the authorities to the scene.

Audible and visual indicators like our Piezo sounder prompts/feedback and ready LEDs plus a bio-feedback indicator alerts users of the keypad's armed status. In high traffic environments such as entrances to busy office buildings, BioReader includes Stealth/Blanking Mode for no-show alarm status LEDs. This feature reveals alarm status only to authorized users without arming/disarming first. The alarm status captured in BioReader's memory is automatically displayed with an LED indicator as a precautionary warning to returning visitors before they enter. For extra privacy from passers by, try our durable scratch-resistant optic glass removable privacy shield.
