Tab Systems adds another award to its smarti trophy cabinet

TAB Systems : 27 November, 2008  (New Product)
The smarti DIADEM biometric face recognition based access control unit is once again in the limelight after taking the Highly Commended Product title in the Detektor International awards
Tab Systems adds another award to its smarti trophy cabinet
Some 150 dinner guests at the Sectech dinner banquette in Copenhagen on the 19th of November witnessed the prize ceremony when the winners of the prestigious Detektor International Awards 2008 were announced. The eleven awarded products were chosen on basis of both innovation and customer orientation. Winning products need to be smart as well as useful.


In the Access control category the smarti DIADEM unit received The Highly Commended Product Award. Other finalists in this category were iLoq, HID and Siemens Building Technologies Security Products.


The criteria to be nominated for a Detektor International Award encompass not only the technical capabilities but the packaging and over-all presentation of the product as well.


The Detektor International Award is the only global security industry award which cannot be applied for. The selection is based solely on product launches which have taken place in the last twelve months. The selection of products is carried out by an international jury comprising of eleven independent security industry professionals. These facts make the Detektor International Award both unique and very prestigious.

The new DIADEM unit has received its first international acknowledgement soon after it was launched. In April 2008 it was short-listed by BSIA (British Security Industry Association) as one of six best new access control products for the IFSEC 2008 Security Industry Awards.

The second recognition for the new unit came at the end of July 2008 when it was nominated to be one of the six finalists in the category "Security Innovation of the Year" at the Security Excellence Awards 2008. These awards are organized by Security Management Today, Security Installer and info4security and are acknowledged as the "Oscars" of the security world!


Access control is increasingly moving toward identification by who you are rather than by what key or card you may carry or PIN you might know. smarti is set to meet this challenge. It identifies people by who they are (face and voice recognition) and not by what ID card or key they carry. The biometric information about an individual is saved as part of a swift enrolment process. smarti uses this information to recognize a person and then acts according to pre-defined instructions that the system controller sets up. These might include saving a photo of the person in the event log, and then opening a door, turning on a light, sending an e-mail or SMS etc, or a combination of such actions.

An additional advantage of this great product is the integration of multiple additional features (video intercom, video & IP phone, video messaging, video surveillance…) into one compact device for a reasonable price. smarti is also completely protocol independent and can therefore be used to control almost any kind of electronic device (different sensors, electronic locks, lights, alarm systems, finger print scanners, RF ID readers...).

Designed with flexibility in mind, smarti can be used for many applications within: business/corporate and high security environments, for home/building automation etc.

The new DIADEM unit is fan-less for quiet operation. It has an aluminium front casing which is IP 65 compliant and is meant for indoor and outdoor use. It is in-wall or on-wall mountable. The inbuilt IR CCTV camera and IR LED lights provide highly reliable identification in all lighting conditions. The unit is also equipped with an 8in colour touch screen, motion detector, microphone, speakers, Intel Centrino processor, built in storage and internal memory. The integrated communication ports and relay I/O controller can be used to control lights, electronic locks, alarms, sensors and other electrical devices.
