Our biometric reader of choice, given its effectiveness across all the areas we engage with our client’s in, commercial, retail, industrial and construction (more so the latter due to dirty damaged fingerprints) is the iEvo Ultimate supplied to us by iEvo Ltd. 

iEvo Ltd is an independent UK based biometric company that focuses on the design, manufacture and distribution of reliable and innovative biometric fingerprint recognition products. Since inception, they have been raising the bar in product reliability, accuracy and efficiency by developing and providing products that allow a greater depth of seamless integration.The iEvo product range caters to the vast majority of industries, including but not limited to; education, construction works, industrial units and factories, leisure and healthcare facilities, Governmental buildings and general facilities management.


The iEvo ultimate is a CPNI (The Centre For Protection of National Infrastructure) certified fingerprint scanner that combines an industry-leading multispectral imaging sensor with advanced security features. Using this sensor, the iEvo Ultimate delivers a cutting-edge biometric solution, simultaneously reading data from both the surface and subsurface levels of a fingerprint even when features are hard to distinguish due to factors such as dirt, moisture and damage.

The ultimate fingerprint reader provides a highly accurate and quality image to reliably allow the iEvo Control Board to perform 1:N matching of up to 50,000 (10,000 as standard) fingerprint templates. The reader unit itself does not store any user data for an additional level of protection. Featuring an IP65 rating and built-in environmental controls, the Ultimate reader is designed for external use even in harsh weather conditions. Supporting proximity detection and clear LED and audio indications, the reader offers simplicity along with convenience to the user.

IP65 rated 

The Ultimate fingerprint reader is IP (Ingress Protection) rated to industry standard 65: 

  • Totally protected against dust ingress.
  • Protected against low-pressure water jets from any direction. Limited ingress permitted.

With this rating, the ultimate is ideal for external and internal installations and harsh environment use. 

Tackling Skin Debris 

Utilising the advanced multispectral imaging sensor to enable a fingerprint image to be obtained even when some levels of dust, dirt, oils, creams or cosmetics are present on the skin; and also, through some types of latex gloves. The ultimate provides a robust solution to work for you. 

Liveness Detection 

Certified for Government use in the UK by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) the ievo ultimate provides resistance to fake and spoof fingerprint attacks by using the industry’s best liveness detection sensor to capture detailed data from the surface and subsurface levels of a fingerprint. 

Flexible Integration 

ievo readers have been designed to assimilate with a large number of security systems via existing protocols. The system can be integrated into a host of access control systems and other security products for true flexibility.  It integrates perfectly with Paxton Net 2 software also supplied by MMV Contracting Limited and is supported within our BreeCS product offering along with CtrlHub and Biostore integrations that we can supply for SHE management and remote site installations, particularly aimed at the civil and commercial construction industries.

Multispectral Imaging

The iEvo ultimate uses multispectral imaging (MSI) technology to capture a highly accurate reading of a fingerprint. Scanning both surface and subsurface levels of the skin simultaneously, up to a depth of 4mm, this method uses multiple polarised and non-polarised lights to register between 1-100 reference points to build a true digital image (the average number of reference points for a good image is 40). The MSI process allows the reader to operate through a variety of most skin or environmental conditions that may otherwise hinder an accurate reading.
