Under the representation of Stag Security, Ievo has been chosen as the biometric supplier to the Scottish National Arena, which will host the Commonwealth Games.
The £112 million project with Bovis Lend Lease will be at the hub of public events, concerts, conferences and as aforementioned the commonwealth Games’ Gymnastics and Netball in the future.
The Ievo fingerprint readers’ main job is to protect the site parameters as well as to record time and attendance of the construction workers. Unlike most fingerprint access control systems on the market today that would not function on a construction site, Ievo has the technology necessary to combat this.
This is because the Ievo reader uses a multi-spectral imaging sensor that penetrates through some types of gloves, oils, dirt and grease on hands. The robust reader has an IP rating of 65 which allows the reader to function amidst environmental conditions; heavy rain, extreme sunlight and freezing temperatures. Therefore, throughout the seasonal calendar, Ievo’s biometric readers are fully functional.
Using fingerprint access control for time and attendance is perfect, especially with hundreds of construction workers it’s easy to wrongly swipe colleagues in and out which can lead to inaccuracies in payment and leave of absence. The national sales manager at Stag Security retains that “on the Scottish National Arena construction site we had no problems with the whole Ievo system in general. It worked extremely well in terms of time and attendance in fact we just installed additional turnstiles which worked very well for us on site”
