Biometrics: a secure and reliable way to control access

clip_image001Biometrics is a term used to describe unique physiological characteristics such as fingerprints, DNA or the iris which can be used to identify an individual. These attributes can be used to authorise access to an individual and the technology involved in doing so provides one of the most secure access control methods.

Biometric identification is more secure and reliable than password, PIN, ID cards or fob based authorisation because the individual has to be physically present at the time. This prevents an individual from stealing the code or implement used to gain access to a restricted area. Using biometric identification also removes the need for individuals to remember passwords or PIN numbers and eliminates the need to replace cards or fobs when one is lost or staff leave the company. This also means that biometric identification is a more cost effective method of granting access because individuals can be easily added or removed from the system.

The FR-240 Biometric Fingerprint Reader provides a secure and reliable way to control access to restricted areas. Every fingerprint is unique and is defined by a series of ridges and channels on the surface of the finger. Even as the individual ages their fingerprint will remain the same. The fingerprints of individuals you wish to give authorisation to will be registered to the device and when their fingerprint is presented to the device they will be granted access. The FR-240 comes with a remote control to program the device and easy to follow instructions to ensure the management of your access control system is as simple as possible.
