Access control security systems monitor and control access to a given area; be it a room, a building or multiple buildings in distant areas. Access control security systems ensure that only approved personnel can gain access to restricted areas and only during certain timescales specified. In the most basic form, swipe cards are used to electronically permit access to restricted areas. When proximity cards are held against a proximity reader, the code is read and checked by the controller against a list of codes that have access in a split of a second. Touchless Biometric access control is the most sophisticated and secure form of access control. Biometrics Access Control system authenticate users by means of physical characteristics like fingerprints, face, palm, voice and retina patterns and removes the hassles of keys and troublesome passwords. They provide the highest level of identification security as the physical parameters are unique to each individual.
The Fingerprint Access Control system takes advantage of the convenience of the human fingerprint, our unique keys, to provide irrefutable personal identification. It is a self-contained terminal that enrolls and verifies users, stores their fingerprint record, keeps transaction logs and interfaces with other units.
Using advanced computer techniques, the technology supersedes Keys, Cards, Secret passwords and PINs and provides a solution that cannot be forged, memorized, altered, stolen or duplicated. Each person has a unique identification number that is used to call up their finger record for verification purpose. Just enter your number and you are authenticated within half a second.
The time and attendance and access control markets continue to experience significant growth in the use of biometric devices. Used in conjunction with labor management software, biometric devices can make a considerable contribution to the reduction of labor costs in an organization. A company’s line management can eliminate card fraud and also monitor its staff’s attendance in real-time. Supervisors can run a report at any time to determine which employees arrived late or are absent and follow up accordingly.
The system is easy to use. Employees punch in their number and present their hand. The number retrieves the stored template and their identity is automatically verified. The reader shows an indicator light and emits a beep to indicate an ‘accept’ or ‘decline’ signal.
Beyond being a time and attendance clock, the biometric reader also has data management keys that allow for labor cost transfers when employees punch. Thus employees’ labor cost can be allocated to a new cost center as they clock on duty.
The Device can be installed as a stand-alone unit, networked or used with a modem. It can be fixed or portable and has multiple serial and parallel communication interfaces as well as Alarm Inputs and Outputs.
The System cost-effectively reduces risk, limits liability, and provides protection and privacy for all concerned and also eliminates the possibility of “Buddy Punching” in time and attendance situations.
