MorphoWave Compact by Idemia
– Frictionless access everywhere

MorphoWave Compact

MorphoWave™ Compact by IDEMIA is the newest addition to IDEMIA’s range of readers for frictionless biometric access control. This masterpiece of engineering delivers the award-winning, field-proven performance of MorphoWave™ contactless 3D fingerprint technology in a stylish and compact wall-mounted device, suitable for any location.


Convenience & Security

Users are positively identified with a simple wave of the hand. The patented touchless sensor technology scans 4 fingers in 3D, ensuring the most accurate and reliable fingerprint matching for maximum security.


High Throughput

The reader’s high speed, touchless acquisition capability allows users to remain in motion while being identified. Faster access control and time & attendance transactions reduce overall costs and increase employee productivity.


Versatile, easy deployment

IP65 rated and PoE+ powered, the compact wall-mount reader ensures that MorphoWave™ technology can be deployed at every location. MorphoWave™ Compact is already integrated with more than 25 of the industry’s leading access control systems.


Multifactor Authentication

MorphoWave™ Compact natively supports Prox, iClass, MIFARE, DESFire cards and PIN code, in addition to biometrics. It is also capable of scanning QR codes for visitor management.


The most proven touchless fingerprint technology...

MorphoWave™ touchless 3D fingerprint technology is designed for the real world.


  • Captures and matches 4 fingers on either right or left hand, in any direction

  • Immune to environmental factors (external light, dust)

  • Copes with wet and dry fingers

  • No latent prints left on scanner

  • Mitigates hygiene concerns

The award-winning MorphoWave™ technology has become the benchmark in frictionless access, securing high traffic access points in the world’s largest financial institutions, critical infrastructure facilities, universities and healthcare organizations.

Works seamlessly with MorphoWave™ Tower

MorphoWave™ Compact represents an 86% reduction in size and 93% reduction in weight compared with MorphoWave™ Tower, making it usable at every door and not only in high traffic lobbies. The two products complement each other perfectly and work seamlessly together to secure any capacity or throughput requirements, even those of the largest global organizations.
