ARINCA - Armazém Seguro de Cartões de Identificação Personalizados - Past Research Projects
Project Summary
Project aims the development of an Intelligent Card Warehouse for indoor use.

The device will be used as a secure safe system where user’s personalized security cards are kept always when they leave their company facilities. Integrated on a global surveillance system through IP or Wiegand connection, the device is able to communicate with the access control software in order to deny the exit of any employee that didn’t store his/her card on the machine, as well as an assiduity input terminal. The users are identified by biometric data (fingerprint) and a four digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) in order to obtain their card.
