Biometric security systems are designed to identify individuals by measuring unique physical patterns, and matching them to stored information. These systems can read fingerprints, faces, palm prints, even retinas, to allow access to restricted areas.
There are two main biometric classifications:
Physiological – which relate to the shape of the body, such as fingerprints, eyes, and faces.
Behavioural – which relate to behaviours such as voice recognition or keystroke dynamics.
Although previously, biometrics had an unreliable reputation, progressions in technology are now making this platform one of the most practical and user-friendly systems available.
Biometrics can remove any discrepancies created by human error. Passwords can be forgotten; keys, cards and tokens can be lost, stolen, damaged or borrowed by others. Biometrics provide trouble-free, easy to use solutions to keep sites safe and secure.
We have recently taken a look at the ievo ultimate fingerprint reader, which seamlessly integrates with most existing access control systems, securely stores up to 10,000 individual fingerprints and continues to work in harsh environments and extreme temperatures. Ideal for many applications, this IP rated device can read fingerprints that other readers would not register – wet, dirty, or through powder, cream, oil or even latex gloves. It can also recognise the difference between a real and a spoof fingerprint by measuring the difference in light passing through the sensor.
