This article reviews the steps to enable and use Internal PIN pad verification on the IOM Access200™. Currently, external PIN pads are not supported.
Why Use Internal PIN Pad?
Enabling and using the Internal PIN pad on the Access200 increases the security from single-factor authentication to dual-factor verification. With PIN enabled, the reader is confirming who you are (iris) and what you know (PIN) at a 1:1 match. PINs must be at least 4 digits and can be up to 16 digits in length.
Note: With PIN enabled on a reader, any user without an assigned PIN will not be recognized by that reader.
Add a PIN to a User
From the Enrollment Station, select the desired user. In the credentials section, click +Add
In the Type dropdown menu, select PIN
Enter the PIN and click SAVE
PIN details are saved and hidden. This user can now be verified on a PIN-enabled Access200
Note: PINs are unique and internal to the Identity Server. They are not synced with any external Access Control Solution or panel.
