Biometric Technology that Puts Access and Control at Your Fingertips


Your days of fumbling for your keys are at an end thanks to INVIXIUM, the biometric company harnessing next-generation fingerprint recognition technology to revolutionize how you access and control your home, office or building.

Biometric access—the ability to open doors and control devices using only your fingerprint—may sound like something out of a science fiction movie set far, far in the future. But this is the 21st century, and biometric access is more than just a possibility: it’s a reality. And INVIXIUM is leading the way.

Whether you’re a pioneer on the home automation frontier looking for ways to make your home smarter and more connected than ever before, or a business owner looking for a more efficient and effective way to control office access or log employee time…


INVIXIUM is the first biometric access solution that is simple enough for home implementation, yet powerful enough to keep even the most classified areas secure.

Our technology does away with antiquated access methods like keys, fobs, key cards and PIN pads and replaces them with cutting-edge biometric algorithms and sensors that deliver fast, accurate fingerprint recognition and response.

Why trust INVIXIUM? Because INVIXIUM means:

Powerful, reliable and unfailingly accurate, INVIXIUM’s fingerprint recognition technology gives you complete control over who can access your home, office or property, and when.

No more fumbling for your key ring or racking your brain to remember this month’s access code. With INVIXIUM, access to your home, office or building is always right at your fingertips.

In today’s world, it’s not enough for technology to work well — it has to look good doing it! From the packaging to the hardware to the interface, each individual detail of INVIXIUM’s products is meticulously designed to be both elegant and easy to use. The result: an effortless, seamless automation experience.


With words like “home automation” and “Internet of Things” on the tips of tongues all over the world, it’s clear that smart home technology is the future when it comes to how we access and control our homes.

INVIXIUM is the first company to bring total home automation and connectivity to the biometric level by integrating our fingerprint recognition capabilities with any smart home installation to make accessing, controlling and customizing your home as simple as the press of a finger.

Make Your Entrance
Tired of fumbling for your keys every time you come home? With an INVIXIUM biometric device installed at your door, you can enter your home in seconds, no keys required. Add profiles for family members, friends and staff, and create schedules to control who has access to your home and when.

Protect What Matters
Every home has certain areas that are out of bounds. INVIXIUM makes it easy to keep certain parts of your home—like the office where you store your important work files, your prize wine collection, or the backyard pool—secure, and accessible only by the individuals that you authorize.

Put the “Smart” in Smart Home
The INVIXIUM system goes far beyond mere access and security: it’s a total home automation solution, putting you in control over any and all smart home-enabled devices in your home, including:

Your Smart Home, Your Way
When it comes to home environment, our preferences are almost as unique as our fingerprints. Use INVIXIUM to create user profiles for each member of your household, and give everyone the ability to customize their environment to their liking and mood with just a touch of a finger!


INVIXIUM’s home automation potential is just one half of the INVIXIUM equation: equally powerful are our platform’s applications in the enterprise space.

From government organizations to industrial plants to small-to-medium businesses, INVIXIUM offers organizations across industries and around the world unparalleled security, visibility and control over the who, what and how of their business.

INVIXIUM gives you the ability to create profiles for individual employees and staff members to grant them access, freeing you from dependence on cumbersome key cards and easily forgotten access codes.

Want to keep certain areas off-limits except to those with a certain level of clearance? INVIXIUM is designed for maximum customizability, so you can control who has access to which areas and when.

For businesses that track employee pay based on time, INVIXIUM has the ability to time stamp entries and create an electronic record that makes it easy to log employee time and prevent payroll error and time theft, both accidental and intentional.

Additionally, we have secured key partnerships with 2 leading technology and automation companies that will help us to get INVIXIUM technology into more homes, offices and buildings on a global scale:

Ingram Micro is the largest IT distributor in the world, with 80% of companies trusting them for their technology needs. INVIXIUM already has an exclusive deal with them in Canada and India and will be adding Australia and US soon as well

Control4 is one of the leading providers of home automation and smart home control technology, and will make INVIXIUM available through their dealer portal

Additional distribution partners have signed on with INVIXIUM in United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, and El Salvador.
