Possible Applications

Security standards vary depending on the agency, of course. Different security requirements apply in embassies and correctional facilities than at the police or local registration office. Moreover, different security applications are required at a police checkpoint than at the entrance to a courthouse. That is why DESKO offers versatile product solutions for different requirements:

Access Controls

Many government offices, police stations or courthouses have protected areas that are not open to the public. Our access control devices help you to reliably regulate access. Our devices are equipped with the latest technologies, whether barcode scanners, swipe readers, card readers, or scanners with RFID or NFC modules for reading transponders or verifying the authenticity of ID cards, passports, EU card driver’s licenses, and other documents.

Border Control

Securing national borders includes police surveillance of the borders, control of cross-border traffic along with the verification of border crossing documents, border searches and the prevention of threats in connection with border crossing. DESKO ID scanners are well established in border protection worldwide and support law enforcement agencies when checking international ID documents. Reliability, durability, and precision are the highest priorities for the scanners used in this highly sensitive area. That is why not only European authorities but also, for example, the American federal authority TSA (Transportation Security Administration), rely on DESKO solutions.

Driver’s License Check

Our equipment must be as flexible as its applications. That’s why we offer not only desktop scanners for document verification in police stations, but also mobile and installation solutions for use in driver’s license checks and large-scale operations. Our scanners, card readers and software solutions provide you with information within seconds as to whether the scanned documents, such as passports or driver’s licenses, are forged or genuine identification documents. For this purpose, our readers and scanners use special technology in combination with the corresponding authentication software that checks and verifies the security features of the documents.

Document Verification in Passport and Registration Offices

In cities and municipalities, verifying, issuing and recording international identity documents are important procedures in day-to-day operations. DESKO ID card scanners support the public servants and clerks engaged in this process, especially in the case of highly frequent or complex documents. DESKO’s full-page scanners create high-resolution images. They are fast, efficient, and easy to use. All DESKO scanners provide images of passports, ID cards and visas under various light sources such as: infrared (IR), visible (VIS) and ultraviolet (UV). DESKO’s full-page scanners automatically enhance the captured images, which is necessary to guarantee perfect further processing in your application or in case document verification with our authentication software is desired. Check passports, compare documents, authenticate and approve them, all with the latest technology.

Visitor Registration

When it comes to performing official duties in government offices, courts, embassies or correctional facilities, it is essential to ensure security within the building. Access controls at the entrance guarantee this security for employees and visitors. Depending on the security regulations, this can be accompanied by ID card authentication. Many DESKO devices are equipped with an RFID or NFC module and can thus be used to read transponders and access cards. DESKO scanners are the first choice for establishing reliable access control.
