Biometric Physical Security

3M helps data centers meet biometric physical security needs with the Cogent biometric access control reader product line.

Biometric Access Control Reader

MiY-Search is 3M Cogent’s two-factor biometric access control reader. It combines fingerprint technology and numerical pin to offer one of the highest levels of access security available. Designed to perform fast authentication and efficient entry, the solution can manage several areas within the specific security requirements, providing fully customizable access control for users with different levels of security access.

MiY-Search features the ground-breaking “Make it Yours” application platform, that allows third-party customization at the edge readers and in the backend systems, leveraging future technologies as they are introduced. Customized workflows can be created with the existing hardware and third-party hardware via the secure USB port, saving time and resources. Possibilities include disarming an area upon authentication, barcode reading, delivering personal messages while performing time and attendance, and using the device as an intercom with Voice-Over-IP.

Miy-Search features an Ingress Protection Level (IP 65) design with built-in TLS encrypted Ethernet and PIV-approved matchers and scanners.

Key features of MiY-Search are:

  • Easy to install
  • External USB for add-on devices
  • Protected OTG port
