Bolted basics

Commercial grade deadbolts accommodate three cylinder options, two keyways and lockless cylinders as well. The BC100 features a heavy-duty 1-in. metal bolt with a hardened steel roller pin to help prevent kick-in attacks and sawing of the bolt. In addition, the deadbolt has a steel faceplate that increases bolt strength up to four times greater than competitive products and a steel door strike that increases security to three times greater than its competitors. The bolt also has a cylinder that offers 10 times the drill resistance of smaller products. All these features combined allow the product to surpass ANSI 156.5 security requirements.

Blink of an eye

Two thousand passengers who travel frequently with Virgin Atlantic and British Airways will go through passport and access control at London's Heathrow International Airport with the blink of an eye. An iris recognition-based processing system positively identifies travelers. To enroll, passengers look into a video camera that takes a close-up image of the iris. About 512 bytes of digital pattern data are extracted from the image, are digitally encoded, sorted and later compared with the new real-time image. The system relies on each person's unique iris pattern. Once enrolled, passengers glance into a camera about 10 inches away and are granted access immediately upon recognition.
