Security and Surveillance


Automatic Driver’s License Recognition Kiosk

Envera Systems specializes in making security more effective and efficient with virtual security solutions for residential communities. As an all-encompassing solution, they offer Active Video Surveillance, Passive Video Surveillance, Access Control, as well as Burglar Alarms. Envera has also invented and patented the Virtual Gate Guard as an enhancement or substitute for on-site gate guards. With the integral Automatic Driver’s License Recognition (ADLR) and the Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) systems, Envera’s Virtual Gate Guard is able to automatically verify the repeat visitors entering a community. When a visitor is unknown to the system, a guard located at Envera’s Central Station will greet the guest and verify with the resident he/she would like to visit.

In the Automatic Driver’s License Recognition Kiosk, there is a PC and scanner that takes images of the state-issued ID’s inserted into the Kiosk. Those images are cross-referenced with Envera’s database of approved visitors for that community. These kiosks are installed outdoors in Florida’s sub-tropical weather. The housed components have a maximum operating temperature of approximately 120 degrees Fahrenheit. With the heat generated by the housed equipment coupled with the solar loading and high ambient temperatures, the Kiosk’s internal temperature was running at or above this limit. A cooling solution was needed to keep these critical security systems up and running.

Through searches online, Envera discovered EIC Solutions, Inc. EIC’s thermoelectric air conditioners seemed to be the perfect solution to keep the electronics cool and running in the Florida heat. While it had been challenging to find an air conditioner in the small physical size needed for the Kiosk, EIC’s knowledgeable sales team quickly determined the proper size unit and capacity needed. EIC Solutions helped Envera overcome their equipment cooling obstacle with a compact 140 series 400 BTU thermoelectric air conditioner with features including:

  • 400 BTU cooling capacity
  • 24VDC power configuration
  • Compact footprint
  • Solid state designed with no moving parts other than fans
  • Virtually no maintenance
  • Recessed frame for mounting the AC entirely inside the customer’s kiosk

Envera has greatly benefited from using EIC’s ThermoTEC Thermoelectric Air Conditioners. The 400 BTU solid-state cooler has ensured that the ADLR Kiosk will work properly and maintain the gate security in the harshest conditions. EIC’s reliable cooling solutions are the perfect fit for unmanned gate security projects. Contact one of EIC’s knowledgeable sales engineers today for a complete application review.
