Say goodbye to your house keys with a new security system developed in Israel based on cutting edge voice and face recognition technologies.


The days of fumbling for your house keys as you reach home could soon be over with a new keyless biometric security system called SafeRise that was developed in Israel and is now in use in residential buildings, offices and even a Florida police station.

Maj. General Aharon Zeevi Farkash, one of the Israel Defense Force staff responsible for Israel’s security during the second intifada, is the founder and CEO of FST21, located in Tel Aviv.

His SafeRise system is based on a fusion of hardware and software that recognizes an individual, so there’s no need for a standard key to enter a building.

Configured according to face recognition, voice recognition and biometrics (the technology that recognizes your body as unique), the system is based on what company CTO Shahar Belkin calls “the duck”: “If it looks like you, talks like you and walks like you, it’s probably you.”
