United States of America (Press Release) March 11, 2009 -- IDetect, Inc. demonstrates its unique ID Scanner software that detects “Scratched” IDs. ID Scratching is the act of making the date of birth or other pertinent information on the front of ones ID appear different than it actually is. Kids these days will change the appearance of their date of birth to gain entrance into a bar or nightclub or other age sensitive facilities. Typically the security that is checking this information is performing this function in a dimly lit area, and/or under time constraints. Therefore a quick glance at this information will appear to the naked eye as authentic. IDetect ID Scanning Software is able to quickly and easily stop entry of an ID that has been scratched by displaying the information from the media on the back of the ID on the IDetect Handheld Scanner, IDetect LITE scanner, or the IDetect Wall Mount Scanner screen. A quick look at the IDetect License Scanner screen clearly displays the correct information for this ID, and therefore all of the “Scratched” information that is inaccurate. This unique IDetect capability has many innovative uses and is in practice all over North America and Canada. For one, it lowers liability because fewer or no fines are given for serving minors alcohol. 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 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 is not 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 underage patron comes to an age 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 patron used with the date and time of their visit so that if any liability issues arise, this information can be used to prove that the facility did their diligence.

IDetect ID scanners existing technology that works with this unique ID Scratching identifying is the IDetect Wall Mount License Scanner, IDetect Handheld ID Scanner, and the IDetect LITE 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.

IDetect ID Age scanners come ready to use out of the box. They come with all necessary accompanying hardware, and the IDetect System Manager which is used on a desktop PC to synchronize with the IDetect scanners. They are easy to use, very fast, and very effective in stopping underage drinking, tampered with IDs, shared ID’s, and entrants who are banned for any reason. They alert the door people within ¼ of a second whether an entrant is a threat in any way and directs the user on what action to take. IDetect ID Scanners keep an automated list of all pertinent records collected at the entrance which can be used to assist law enforcement in case of an altercation, or if a previous entrant needs to be found.

IDetect Age Verification ID Scanners full functionality have assisted in apprehending five separate perpetrators of various crimes throughout North America by utilizing IDetect’s exclusive entrant picture, and new License picture box feature.
