Precise signs development licence agreement with RECO for door lock fingerprint sensors in Asia

Precise Biometrics (Precise) has entered into a 12-month development license agreement with RECO Biotek Co., Ltd. (RECO), a Taiwan-based provider of bio-sensing system integration solutions. Under the terms of the agreements, Precise will provide its cutting-edge sensor algorithm solution BioMatch® to be integrated into RECO's fingerprint systems.

The development license agreement initially targets sensors used to develop systems for door lock products for the Taiwanese and Chinese markets. The agreement aims to enhance security measures while providing a seamless and convenient experience for end-users. If the project is deemed successful, a commercial agreement is expected to be executed after the completion of the development period.

Patrick Höijer, CEO of Precise, comments:
“We are excited about this collaboration with RECO. The agreement is another important confirmation of the potential in our strategic plan of product diversification, beyond our strong position on the mobile phone market. Precise is experiencing growth in the door lock market, witnessing a rising number of locks equipped with fingerprint sensors being shipped. The integration of hardware and sensors within door locks poses demanding criteria for algorithms to ensure superior performance, an area where Precise has demonstrated expertise. We eagerly anticipate cooperating with RECO in their endeavors to develop and test the fingerprint sensors for the door lock market, with the goal of achieving commercialization during the year 2024.”
