Iris ID Competes in AST Homeland Security Awards (Learn More)

Iris ID’s IrisAccess® 7000 continues to set the highest standard for performance and versatility for iris recognition.

Whether you are looking for a single biometric identification solution that leads the industry, or a multi-factor verification solution that works with cards, card readers or keypad solutions, the IrisAccess platform will meet your needs.

Iris ID has been the leader and key developer and driver of the commercialization of iris recognition technology for the past 15 years. IrisAccess continues to lead the market as the world’s most advanced and most widely deployed iris recognition platform.

The iCAM7000 series is the newest generation in the iCAM series and is completely compatible with the prior iCAM4000 series solution deployed worldwide.

IrisAccess, now in its sixth generation, is used in thousands of locations on six continents, authenticating the identities of millions of people. More people in more places authenticate with IrisAccess than with all other iris recognition products combined.

IrisAccess provides highly accurate, non-contact identification while delivering security, convenience, privacy and productivity. The solution is being used for network-based access control, time and attendance, visitor management and point-of-sale applications.

Iris ID’s biometric solutions provide highly accurate, non-contact identification by the iris of the eye from 14 inches away while delivering security, convenience, privacy and productivity to millions of people around the world.


The iCAM7000’s versatility and flexibility allows for easy integration with many Wiegand and network based access control, time and attendance, visitor management and point of sale applications.

Engineering and design teams have further enhanced the intuitive user interface of the iCAM series with visual and audible prompts that provide the easiest, quickest and most accurate iris enrollment and identification.

A rapid auto-tilt capability further increases both speed and convenience with a simple touch or when combined with cards or PINs to adjust for height. A face image can also be obtained during enrollment to streamline badging and visitor management applications while a space for an optional surveillance camera has also been incorporated.

A new iData™ software suite for access control, as well as SDKs and a development tool kit allow partners to build identity management applications which support several encryption alternatives, are FIPS201 compliant and include PKI support. Experts also concede that the countermeasures built into the IrisAccess suite set the standard for the industry.

Iris IDEvery iris pattern is unique and stable for life and since there are more readily measurable characteristics in the iris, iris recognition is regarded to be the most accurate, fastest, and scalable option for both small and large scale biometric deployments.

Other biometric modalities such as fingerprint, hand, voice, vein and facial characteristics can often vary and change over time or with use conditions.

System Configuration

The IrisAccess system consists of iData EAC (Entry Access Control) Software & proprietary hardware that pairs specifically with our software suite.

Several hardware components can be used: iCAM4000 series, ICU4000 series, iCAM7000 series and functional operational mode options can be used.


Multi-factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication can be easily set by using a combination of EAC software, iCAM7100 with built in keypad and leveraging a third party Physical Access Control System (PACS) that can support Card + PIN as an authentication mode.

The result is authentication by Card + Iris + PIN.   All iCAM models can be used with preinstalled external readers that output Wiegand to offer 2 and 3 factor authentication solutions.  Specific settings can be found in the iCAM7000 series user guide under multi-factor authentication options.

3 Factor Authentication: iCAM7100 with PACS System (PACS PIN)


Factor Authentication: iCAM7100 without PACS System (Local PIN)


Iris ID Systems Inc., formerly a division of LG Electronics USA known as LG IRIS, has been active in iris recognition research, development and production since 1997. Today U.S.-based Iris ID Systems is a global player in the iris recognition business.

Iris ID

IrisAccess® is the world’s leading deployed iris recognition platform and in thousands of locations authenticating the identities of millions and millions of persons.

More people look to IrisAccess for iris-based authentication that to all other iris recognition products combined.

Good luck to Iris ID on becoming a Winner of the American Security Today’s Homeland Security Awards Program!
