Biometric fingerprint scanners work by reading an employee’s fingerprint, and storing it as a mathematical algorithm – a code to allow the terminal to check a fingerprint. You can allay your employees’ fears that their fingerprints are being kept on record by explaining there is no possibility a fingerprint from an algorithm can be replicated.
By installing our biometric fingerprint reader, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:
When using the fingerprint reader for access control, you can program the unit to read a ‘duress fingerprint’, allowing a different finger to be used in a dangerous situation – if an employee is being forced to open a door, for instance. Reading the duress fingerprint, the door will open as normal but the system will discreetly send an alarm signal to the main terminal or security office.
