ID Scanners Protects the USS Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum

ID Scanners by IDetect protects the Intrepid located on the Hudson River of New York City from unlawful entry.  In the past, our security personnel would not know if a driver of a delivery truck about to enter the pier presented a fake or tampered drivers license, according to the head of security for the Intrepid. Since we implemented the use of IDetect Id scanners we can easily verify the identity of all individuals accessing our facility. Now if we encounter any warnings on a particular individual we would immediately stop this person at the security gate, adds the head of security. The use of IDetect Id scanner allows us to quickly identify if the identification presented is real, tampered with and if we have to stop this driver for any other reason. The IDetect Id scanner is very easy to use and proven to be highly effective. We implemented the use of IDetect Id scanning systems the day we received it. Within the first week of using the IDetect Id scanning system, we found a driver attempting to use expired identification.  The IDetect Handheld Id scanner quickly displayed this information to the gate security personnel and the driver was turned away from access.  Another advantage presented to the Intrepid is the ability to have live data fed real-time to the security office inside the ship.  So when an Id is scanned at the front gate, that information, with the driver’s picture, is automatically sent via wireless communication from the IDetect Handheld Id scanner to the security office where it is displayed on their base computer which possesses the id scanner software designed for windows xp, vista or windows 7.  Also, information input in the security office is fed automatically via wifi wireless real time to the IDetect handheld id scanner while the security personnel are utilizing the unit.  This allows the security office to quickly add a driver to the banned list for any reason and have that information immediately in the gate officers IDetect handheld Id scanner. This unique id scanner capability has many innovative uses and is in practice all over North America and Canada. This id scanner has proven to protect and pay for itself.
It lowers liability because of the ability to flag drivers that attempt to enter the facility with invalid identification.  It takes the pressure off of Security personnel, and has lowered liability insurance for many establishments.  This function has shown to be very useful for other markets such as bars, nightclubs, liquor stores, convenience stores, casinos, colleges, universities, festivals, and special events.    


IDetect drivers license scanners have also been used to stop the new threat in ID falsifying:  Placing media on the back of the ID that scans correctly, but does not match any of the information found on the front of the ID.  This tactic eliminates “ID Scratching” all together.  There are no markings that are performed on the front of the ID, so it appears completely legitimate and not tampered with.  But when scanned through the IDetect Id scanning systems it immediately and clearly shows the inaccurate information therefore averting liability. 


IDetect’s Id scanners have also solved the new Id scratching practice; scratching the media on the back of the Id.  This is done so that when an entrant comes to a restricted facility using an Id scanner, the Id cannot be scanned because the media on the back has been scratched and damaged.  The security person then has to revert back to examining the ID with his naked eye.  If using the IDetect ID Scanners, the security person only has to simply drop this ID into the IDetect License camera box.  This will keep a clear picture of the ID that the visitor used with the date and time of their visit so that if any liability issues arise, this information can be used for investigation


IDetect Id scanners existing technology that works with this unique wifi and falsified ID practice is the IDetect wall mount drivers license Id scanner, IDetect handheld Id scanner, and the IDetect lite id scanner.  IDetect age verification systems have been successfully utilized for more than 15 years in liquor stores, night clubs, universities, casinos, military bases, office buildings, rental car agencies, festivals, banks, and import/export ports throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Another important factor that many club owners, liquor store owners or any age verification establishment doesn't realize is, your id scanner policy and procedures is a deterrent for any patrons desire for confrontation. Each patron knows, that the establishment has their true identity and if a confrontation does arise that requires the presence of law enforcement, your establishment has the full identity of any and all patrons involved in any incident. So not only is your id scanner protecting your liquor license from revocation by the state, it's also protecting your establishment from patron confrontation or possibly all out brawls. It's actually amazing to enter a establishment that does not possess any id scanner and an establishment that has a full id scanning system in place. There is actually a difference in clientele or patron behavior. This is more evident in clubs or establishments that sell alcohol beverages.


In an attempt to combat the use of false identification in alcohol and tobacco purchases, the Department of Public Safety is encouraging businesses where age verification is required, to implement an identification scanner that would make fake IDs useless.

The device, IDetect's ID Scanner, reads the id scanner barcode and id scanner magnetic strip on the back of a driver's license or ID scanner information to obtain information such as the driver's license number, the license expiration date and the birth date of the driver and much more.

Law enforcement says the scanners would help cut down on underage alcohol consumption. The number of minors purchasing alcohol by illegal means would be reduced because illegally manufactured IDs would be picked up by the scanner. It is impossible to imitate an ID, although with new computer equipment and color printers, many people are getting by with institutions that do not use ID Verification state of the art tools. IDetect's ID Scanners would be an effective way to neutralize technological developments that make it easier to create fake IDs.
