MorphoWave™ Compact

Frictionless biometric access everywhere


MorphoWave Compact is the newest addition to IDEMIA’s range of readers for frictionless biometric access control.

It’s the”compact” version of the MorphoWave Tower, the access control tower, able to capture and identify 4 fingerprints “on the fly” in less than a second, from a single wave of the hand.

This contactless biometric reader allows to improve flow in high traffic areas. The user keep walking while going through the authentication.

This masterpiece of engineering delivers the award-winning, field-proven performance of MorphoWave™ contactless 3D fingerprinttechnology in a stylish and compact wall-mounted device, suitable for any location.

This MorphoWave ™ Compact represents a 86% reduction in size and 93% reduction in weight compared with the MorphoWave Tower.

Moreover, this version has been improved with new important features: IP 65, multifactor authentication, biometrics, card, PIN…

It can be easily integrated to all kind of environments.

The Morphowave compact has already been awarded in the «Best in User Authentication, Identification, Credentialing and Management»  category of the SIA New Product Showcase on April 11th, 2018.
