KSI Thermal Presence Detection Keyboard

➥ Logon with secure biometric fingerprint authentication

➥ Tap in with contactless RFID

➥ Logoff with silent, walkaway thermal presence detection protection

➥ Secure logon, logoff:  Problem solved!

All your vacant desktops remain secured with our thermal presence detection solution.  No more unsecured desktops due to users forgetting to lock their PCs.  No more annoying lock screens throughout the day that drag down productivity.

Our integrated, articulating Omron MEMS thermal sensor uses infrared technology to detect human presence — allowing for convenient, secure user walkaway logoff without software.  Timeout is adjustable and logoff is silent.  The sensor prevents an unauthorized person from accessing an active session at a vacant desktop and locks the PC in as little as 5 seconds — guaranteed to lock within 60 seconds.  Onboard programming finetunes our thermal sensor to the user environment and can be combined with other best-of-the-best solutions in secure authentication, such as mobile, hands-free OTP, and proximity.

Logon is secured with biometric fingerprint authentication — the user’s PC is securely unlocked with an easy finger press.  Setup takes just a few minutes in Windows Hello and leading healthcare single-sign-on platforms.  Our integrated HID® reader is also key in the healthcare environment for meeting DEA-mandated ePrescribe regulation and achieving multifactor desktop security.

Our configurable, contactless rf IDEAS® dual frequency card reader — 125 kHz and 13.56 MHz — recognizes four card types and is an essential part of your identity management multifactor logon strategy.  Fast tap in, tap out is easy, and hygienic.  Together with biometrics, RFID provides multifactor authentication that makes your desktop that much more secure.

KSI’s patented LinkSmart® with San-a-Key® software is a complete infection control solution and IP compliance monitoring tool for the clinical desktop — aiding in the prevention of hospital-acquired infections that can cause severe illness and death.  Our easy-clean, low-profile keys prevent debris and germs from hiding around and beneath.

Our new solution unclutters the desktop without sacrifice to workstation or cart space, and we use only top-notch components to protect your patient health records and other sensitive data.
