The FunkyGate is used in the Disneyland Paris Park located in Marne-la-vallée in the east of Paris.

The Disneyland Paris Park has developed a new attraction on the StarWars franchise theme. This new attraction has also a shop in which the visitors go once the ride is over.

The StarTour attraction’s shop has a Money Room, it is in this room that employee drop the daily revenue of the shop. It is extremely important that this room is secured by a reliable and efficient device able to control the access to a room as important as the Monye Room.

This image comes from the TV show Zone Interdite that was broadcasted on 10/29 at 9PM on M6.

The FunkyGate has been installed on the door jamb of the Money Room to secure this room.

Security is the major challenge of this product it was essential for the project to offer a product that you can install quickly and that ensures a complete confidentiality of the data.

This device is also able to read and write cards one after the other and its security level allow an end-to-end encrypted communication.
