IDetect, Inc. supplies their IDetect Handheld ID Scanner / wireless ID Scanning system to Harrah’s International of Saint Louis, MO to quickly identify and stop under aged entrants on their casino floor. According to the head of security for Harrah’s hotel and casino, security personnel could not determine if an individual entering their casino or hotel bar had presented a fake, tampered or legitimate drivers license. The head of security adds, if we had any warnings on a particular individual we would not know quickly enough to stop this individual upon entry. Due to the id scanning system by IDetect, Inc., we recently implemented, this has entirely changed. The use of IDetect ID Scanners allows us to quickly identify if the ID presented is real or not. With a simple swipe on the id scanner, we can quickly determine if the id presented is legitimate. The IDetect ID Scanner is very easy to use and proven to be highly effective. We began using it the day it was delivered, and within the first week of using the IDetect System, it found a person attempting to use an expired ID. The IDetect Handheld ID Scanner quickly displayed this information to the Harrah’s security personnel and the person was turned away. Another advantage presented to Harrah’s International is the ability to have live data fed real-time to the security office inside the casino. So when an ID is scanned at the entrance, that information, with the entrant’s picture, is automatically sent via wireless communication, or wired, from the IDetect ID Scanners to the security office where it is displayed on their base computer. Also, information input in the security office is fed automatically via wifi wireless, or wired, real time to the IDetect ID Scanners while the security personnel are utilizing the units. This allows the security office to quickly add a person to the banned list for any reason and have that information immediately in the entrance officers IDetect ID Scanner. This unique IDetect capability has many innovative uses and is in practice all over North America and Canada. For one, it lowers liability because of the inability for flagged drivers to enter the facility. 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, factories, 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 for Harrah’s; 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 License Scanner, IDetect Handheld ID Scanner, and the IDetect LITE scanner. IDetect Age Verification systems have been successfully utilized for more than 20 years in liquor stores, night clubs, universities, casinos, military bases, office buildings, rental car agencies, festivals, banks, grocery stores, and import/export ports throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

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.
