The MiY-Touch indoor biometric touch-screen access control reader is compact,
fast, and one of the lightest readers in its class. Designed with an intuitive
interface and visual user feedback, MiY-Touch also is easy to use. Security
systems integrators see benefits with features like built-in time and
attendance functions, external USB for add-on devices, Sandbox API framework
support, and an optional detachable contact/contactless smart card reader that
meets current SP800-116 standards.

MiY-Touch is the fifth product to be introduced in the 3M Cogent MiY product
line. Accolades for the company’s MiY line include previous SIA NPS Awards,
ESX Maximum Impact Awards, and ASIS Accolades.

“Each year, the companies competing in SIA’s New Product Showcase at ISC West
present leading-edge security solutions that are shaping the industry,” said
SIA CEO Don Erickson. “These new technologies and solutions are the drivers
that are moving the security industry forward, and I congratulate 3M Cogent on
their win at this year’s NPS.”

awards-based marketing program. This year’s NPS Program had 84 entries from 66
companies. In addition to the Best New Product and Judges’ Choice honors,
awards were presented in twenty one product and service categories. NPS judges
