SecuGen to Showcase the Versatile Unity™ 20 Bluetooth Fingerprint Reader at CES 2019
Santa Clara, Calif. (December 11, 2018)
SecuGen, the world’s leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, is pleased to announce they will be showcasing the new Unity™ 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader at the 2019 CES exhibition in Las Vegas in early January.
The Unity 20 Bluetooth is the world’s first elegantly designed, low cost, fully programmable Bluetooth fingerprint reader. This versatile device features SecuGen’s flagship U20 fingerprint sensor found in the Hamster Pro 20 product family but with Bluetooth capability that allows it to securely transfer fingerprint data wirelessly to a smartphone, tablet, or PC. It is sleek and small enough to be carried in your pocket as a mobile fingerprint reader or placed solidly at a workstation as a traditional desktop reader.
The Unity 20 Bluetooth can be used right out of the box by calling SecuGen’s Fingerprint Management System (FMS) software’s simple API. Alternatively, it can be custom programmed to suit the needs of the targeted user base. It sports a complete Linux development environment, SecuGen’s on-board fingerprint capture and NIST MINEX-compliant template extraction and matching algorithms, the OpenSSL cryptography library and a 1 GHz CPU. The Unity 20 Bluetooth can also store encrypted fingerprint templates and process them in a closed environment without ever leaving the device.
“Most of the existing Bluetooth products on the market are about as attractive as a deck of cards,” stated Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen. “The Unity 20 Bluetooth reader, on the other hand, breaks the mold and is a stunning device with a slim, sleek white case, a single button and three small LEDs. Our team has been able to do this while keeping the price of the product very low. We are very, very proud of this product. Our team has done a wonderful job.”
Dan Riley, VP of Engineering added, “Once again our engineering team has heard the voices of our partners and has designed world class products to meet their needs. The Unity 20 Bluetooth and U20-ASF-BT are breakthrough products that maintain our dedication to quality. They are not only well engineered and versatile but very affordable, and the finished Unity 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader is truly a beautiful product.”
The Unity 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader, like all SecuGen products, is priced for large scale deployments.
“We continue to focus on the requirements of our partners around the world,” stated Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “The Unity 20 Bluetooth is a response to a clear need that we have seen in the marketplace. This is precisely what our partners have been asking for, and we are excited to support and help them succeed with new products that are attractive, powerful, and economical.”
The Unity 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader will be on display in SecuGen’s booth #35232 in South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center for the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show from January 8th through January 11th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
