Biometrics: Just a fingerprint for fast access. 
Biometric Technology is the future of Security.


1. The future is here. Biometric technology has arrived in the home security industry, and we are excited to offer you the innovative Access Control biometric fingerprint reader. In the old days, access to restricted areas was granted by metal keys and locks. Then technology progressed to ID cards and PIN numbers. But now you have the ultimate in access control.


What is a Biometric Fingerprint Reader?



“Biometric” comes from the Greek bios (“life”) and metron (“measure”). A biometric fingerprint reader, also known as a fingerprint scanner, recognizes humans based on intrinsic physical traits. For example, a biometric reader can read eye retinas or irises, facial patterns, hand measurements or fingerprints.

Unlike keys, cards, or number sequences, access through a biometric reader cannot be transferred from person to person unless explicitly authorized.


How Does a Biometric Reader Work?



A biometric reader can be used as a stand-alone or a networked operation, perfect for home or office. An authorized person has their physical characteristic scanned and turned into a numerical algorithm which is then entered into a database. The authorized person must subsequently provide that same physical characteristic- for example, their hand, to be read and recognized by the biometric reader before access is granted.

Why Use a Biometric Fingerprint Reader?

A biometric reader is a more reliable security device than your average lock or keypad. Only the person authorized access can successfully pass a biometric reader. A key, card, or number sequence can be passed around or easily stolen. A biometric reader requires that the authorized person be physically present for access to be granted. Thieves and other criminals would have a difficult time getting past a biometric reader.

Other reasons to use a biometric fingerprint reader:





1. It is affordable and user friendly, recognizing identity and granting access in less than one second.
2. Biometric reader can store information from 512 users (standard) up to 35,512 users (networked).
3. A biometric reader drives costs down while raising the level of security.

Biometric reader access control can be incorporated into your security system.

What are the negatives to having a biometric fingerprint safe?





1. If you need to grant access to the safe and not be present. For example, you are out of town and need information out of the safe. You could give your combination to someone over the phone if it were a standard safe. Then when you got home you could change the combo thus locking them out again. This cannot be done with a biometric fingerprint safe. Your fingerprint must be present to enroll new fingerprints.


2. Lets presume your dead. You can leave your combination on your will at your attorney=s=s office. Then access is easily granted from the reading of you will. Not so with a fingerprint safe everyone is still locked out and a locksmith must be brought in to gain access.


These are just scenarios to think about before purchasing a safe.
