3M Cogent Integrates MiY Readers with Schneider Electric's Andover Continuum

3M Cogent has announced the integration of its MiY biometric access control readers with Schneider Electric's Andover Continuum integrated security and building management solutions. 3M Cogent MiY readers are now integrated with Andover Continuum CyberStation 1.91 or greater. The first complete integration of the MiY solution for user and credential management into a third party software, leveraging MiY's framework, provides biometric capture and cardholder enrollment directly from any CyberStation or using any 3M MiY reader on the network. The 3M Cogent MiY product portfolio was designed to provide integrators with a comprehensive yet easy-to-develop framework, shortening the product development time and creating solutions for end users. The MiY product line provides single to multi-factor access control and is FIPS 201 certified. The successful integration of 3M Cogent's MiY biometric access control readers with Schneider Electric's Andover Continuum allow to provide customers with best-in-class solutions that enable optimal, efficient building performance and reduce energy consumption, capital expenditures, and operating expenditures while also improving overall business performance.
