Access control prevents unwanted visitors from entering your premises. Biometric access control has grown in popularity over the last couple of years and we have been asked by many of our prospects and clients.
Biometric access control represents a modern type of security technology that can present a series of benefits across multiple industries. Today, we’re going to explain how biometric access control works, and how useful it is for certain businesses.
Essentially, biometric access control systems record biological data from human beings. They have scanners equipped to them, which collects all of this data. For example, there’s a fingerprint scanner that analyses one of your fingerprints and keeps them in a data file. You then choose who you want to have access to whatever’s behind the access control system, and register their fingerprints.
Biometric time and attendance systems use the fingerprints of employees to verify who is actually clocking in and clocking out of work each day. The system scans the finger of the employee, coordinates are determined and then the system maps the endpoints and intersections of the fingerprint.
