AuthenTec introduced a new smart fingerprint sensor tailored for mobile commerce (mCommerce) applications requiring strong but effortless security in today’s NFC-equipped smartphones and tablets.

The AES2750’s utilizes an innovative and unique new package design, with a narrow Y-dimension and rounded edges enabling mounting in narrow spaces or edges of smartphones and tablets as well as through-hole glass mounting for touchscreen-enabled mobile devices. The package is completely flat and over molded in plastic for accommodating the elegant industrial design of today’s leading smartphones. The modular package design reduces bill of material (BOM) costs required for sensor integration by handset and tablet OEMs. Read the rest of this entry »

The New Brinno Digital Peephole PHV-1330 by Secure View can easily replace the traditional peephole of any door to provide added security and privacy from unwanted visitors.
Running on two AA batteries, the PHV-1330 uses a 3-inch LCD Panel to display a panoramic digital view from behind your door, transforming a hard-to-see traditional peephole image into a bright digital image, making it easy-to-see for users of any height. Think of it as seeing your peephole in Hi-Definition without the “fish eye” distortion.
The PHV-1330 is incredibly easy to install and the large LCD screen makes it convenient for children, the elderly or anyone with a visual or physical impairment to safely view their visitor before opening the door. By simply pushing a large button located right under the screen, users will see a clear image of who is at their front door. A second push of the same button creates a zoomed image, making it easy to see facial details, something that is literally impossible to do with a traditional peephole. The PHV-1330 also compensates for low light situations, making it possible for users to see a clear image of who is at their door, even when it’s dark outside. Read the rest of this entry »
