Sense2 access control fingerprint reader
Robust. Formidable. Tenacious.

Fingerprint Biometric Reader Designed for Rugged Environments

SENSE 2 is suited to handle biometric applications better and stronger than any of its competitors. With an optional Lumidigm Multispectral Fingerprint sensor on-board, SENSE 2 can be equipped to handle outdoor environments with challenging levels of dust, dirt, sand, wind, rain and more. This sensor is well suited to user populations with potentially challenging fingerprints to read. And, SENSE 2 boasts a large biometric record capacity and 1 GHz processing power to fulfill a broad range of installation requirements.

Built Tough For Your Biggest Security Challenges

HID Lumidigm Multispectra SENSE 2

HID Lumidigm Multispectral Fingerprint Sensor Enables All-Environment Operation

The Lumidigm Multispectral Fingerprint Sensor from HID is Invixium’s recommended sensor for outdoor or challenging environments prone to difficult conditions from dust, sand, dirt, water and more. This sensor makes use of multispectral imaging to read fingerprints deep into the epidermis, granting the ability to authenticate individuals with challenging fingerprints due to environmental or genetic factors.

Card-reader SENSE 2

Card Options Add Security and Flexibility

Though SENSE 2 is a rugged biometric reader at heart, some businesses want the added security of cards as a second layer of authentication. Pairing card credentials with fingerprint greatly reduces the risk of a stolen or borrowed card to be used for access control or time tracking, because the user will be forced to verify that they are who they say they are using biometrics. Further, when biometrics aren’t feasible for all users, for any reason, cards can act as a backup credential.

Rugged Construction SENSE 2

Rugged Construction Suits All Environments

Invixium has committed to the most rugged construction ever for SENSE 2, from its aluminum backplate to dissipate internally generated heat, to its multispectral fingerprint sensor and high ingress and impact protection ratings. SENSE 2 is certified with both IK08 and IP65 to protect against the effects of water and impact, but Invixium still recommends an overhand for outdoor installs.

Envision Your Business With SENSE 2
Deploy Fingerprint Access Control IXM SENSE 2

Deploy Fingerprint Access Control When Other Devices Don’t Work

SENSE 2 is the fingerprint biometric access control solution for environments where this security method may not otherwise work because of SENSE 2’s thoughtful, durable construction. Fingerprint access control enhances security because biometrics cannot be lost, borrowed or forgotten, so you can rest assured that the person accessing your facility is exactly who they say they are. Thanks to its HID Lumidigm fingerprint sensor, SENSE 2 authenticates challenging fingerprints (due to dust, water, dirt, genetics or age) with ease.

Ideal Applications

Ethernet Cable

One-Cable PoE+ Power And Communication Create Easy Installation

One cable (CAT5/6) for power and communication makes installation fast and easy while also lowering installation costs and maintenance requirements.

IXM Partners

Integrations With Leading Access Control Software For A Seamless System

Through IXM Link, SENSE 2 integrates with industry-leading access control software including OnGuard by LenelS2, Honeywell Pro-Watch and others.

Impact And Ingress Ratings SENSE 2

Impact And Ingress Ratings Withstand High Environmental Challenges

SENSE 2 is protected by IP65 ingress protection and IK08 impact protection. Though these ratings mean that the product can be used outdoors, Invixium recommends an overhang for harsh environments.

Proximity Sensor SENSE 2

Proximity Sensor Extends Device Longevity

SENSE 2 is built with a presence detector that “wakes up” the device when a person is in view. Much like automatic, motion-detection lights, this sensor allows the device to go into standby mode when no person is detected to save energy.

Tamper Protection IXM SENSE 2

Tamper Protection Protects From Hackers And Data Thieves

SENSE 2 has a built-in anti-shock vandal protection (ASVP) system that triggers an alarm if an attempt is made to remove the device from its installed location as an extra layer of security.

Even More Great Features

Large User Capacity Meets Any Business’s Needs

SENSE 2 supports a 1:N capacity of 20,000 users for fingerprint templates or a 1:1 capacity of 100,000.

Made In Canada Products Ensure High Quality

Invixium proudly uses the highest-quality materials at its Canada-based production facility to provide our customers with the highest quality in engineering and user experience.

Invixium Products Offer Application Flexibility Through Customization

To best serve all of our customers’ unique needs, Invixium’s products are supported by expert engineers who offer a wide variety of customizations for biometric applications, software and hardware integrations, and more.

Communication Options Offer Customizable Levels Of Security

SENSE 2 can communicate via Ethernet, Wiegand or OSDP2 to offer various levels of security and accessibility to work with a range of IT policies and capabilities.

Biometric Template And Communication Channel Encryption Safeguards Personal Privacy

All of SENSE 2’s biometric templates are encrypted to reduce identity theft. When a person shows their biometric to the device, a RAW image is scanned by the on-board sensor and converted to an ANSI-378 template, which is encrypted using state of the art AES before storage.

Panel Feedback Creates An Interactive User Experience

Your access control panel controls various feedback options carried out by SENSE 2 such as sounds and LEDs, which you can customize through IXM WEB, Invixium’s companion software for all of our biometric solutions.

Card Options Add Non-Biometric Authentication Layers

SENSE 2 supports multiple card formats including prox, DESFire and MiFare, as well as up to 10 assigned cards per user. This adds a higher level of customization to your security and aids in transitioning from cards to biometrics over time.

Fully Customizable LEDs For A Unique Experience

Via IXM WEB, SENSE 2’s free, web-based software companion, you can customize LED colors and patterns to create a unique user experience for different device events.

Device Powers Door Strike Reduces The Amount Of Wires And Electricity In Your Installation

The efficient power management offered by SENSE 2 allows the device to divert extra power to the door strike, so the door will not require its own power supply.
