The need to identify people is as old as humankind. However, in today's complex society, it's impossible to personally know everyone and as a consequence, systems rely on recognising a credential rather than the individual.
Our biometric readers recognise people - not credentials. This is done by identifying unique human characteristics: the size and shape of a hand, a fingerprint, one's face or several aspects of the eye. If the goal of an access control or time and attendance system is to control when and where people, not credentials, are or can go, then only a biometric device truly provides this capability.
We are the only company to manufacture the two most commercially used biometric technologies - hand geometry and finger scanning. As a multi-technology company, we manufacture both hardware and software to ensure a fully integrated system.
Key benefits of using biometrics:
- Effective security measure controlling access to authorised persons
- Real-time tracking of building occupants to generate accurate roll call/muster lists
- Easy to install and integrate into existing networks
- Eliminates the risk and associated costs of 'buddy punching'
