Biometric Readers Access Control
Our biometric readers access control systems provide unobtrusive, customized protection for your house, facility, or campus. We use advanced biometric recognition scanners and door locks to identify fingerprints, irises, or faces, among other things, removing the need for access control cards and keypad codes. We assist you in deploying advanced security solutions for access control by using access biometric readers access control systems.
Biometrics is a method of determining a person’s identity based on chemical, behavioral, or physical characteristics, and it is useful in large-scale identity management in a variety of applications. This technology can also be used to monitor access to computer networks, financial transactions, and transportation systems.
To obtain the required verification data from an individual, a biometric readers’ access control or scanning system is used. In fingerprint biometrics, an optical sensor is used to create an image of the ridge structure at a fingertip, which then acts as the foundation for further access control operation.
The information required to process biometric readings is stored in a biometric device database. The function prototype is entered into the database when defining access control criteria, often along with biographical details unique to the user to improve security levels. The parameter setting and data collection procedures can be automated or done under the supervision of a technician.
A single biometric sample is often enough to extract a user template. A biometric device may process several samples to create a mosaic representation in certain situations. Some systems often keep numerous models on hand to account for data variations caused by a single user. This approach is commonly used in facial recognition biometrics, where multiple models are used to account for each person.
What are Biometrics
Biometrics are body/biological measurements or physical characteristics that can be used to identify an individual. Within access control, biometric-based readers provide a secure level of authentication based on unique physiological reference points. The most common biometric is fingerprint with others, including facial recognition, iris scanner, and voice recognition.
The first step in using biometric readers within an access control system is to add a fingerprint credential to the user database. This is done using an IEVO scanner to register an advanced image reading and a detailed scan of finer surface and subsurface skin levels. This creates a highly accurate digital fingerprint image from which specific data is converted into the digital template and then used for verification by an IEVO biometric reader such as the Micro or Ultimate.
Usage of Biometric readers access control
Biometric readers access control has a rising role in our everyday security or seems to be the future, especially with greater importance of security and personal data as physical characteristics are relatively fixed and individualized.
Unlike well-known traditional means of access control which include token-based identification systems, such as clock cards, passwords, or personal identification numbers, Biometric readers access control is unique to individuals. It is more reliable in verifying identity than token and knowledge-based methods.
Biometric readers access control is certainly reliable and can substantially reduce the risk of human error as employees are not tasked with remembering passwords/pin codes or ensuring that they have a key card with them all the time. These are things that can be stolen and jeopardize your security. Again, you can easily forget them and be denied access to where you are supposed to go.
The advantages of using Biometric readers access control
Convenient to use.
Unlike passwords, pins, or access cards that you can forget, biometrics are always with you and cannot be lost or forgotten.
Difficult to steal or impersonate.
Passwords or access cards can easily be stolen or shared amongst employees or even with people who are not supposed to have access to a certain building or area. But biometrics are difficult to steal or impersonate and make Biometric readers access control reliable and safe to use.
Biometric readers access control can prevent credential sharing, ‘buddy punching’ where one person signs in for another using their card or key fob to gain access to a restricted building or area within. The system provides a very high accuracy rate. With fingerprint readers, the mathematical representation of the fingerprint is taken, detailing the unique characteristics of the individual and storing them in the database as templates. This makes it impossible to replicate the fingerprint and gain access to the building.
Biometric readers access control remains to be a growing way to verify identity and grant access and offers very compelling security solutions. Despite the risks that might be there, the Biometric readers access control are reliable, convenient, and hard to duplicate. It is a must-have for your company or security.
