Fingerprint Scanner

Benefits of Fingerprint Access Control

Fingerprint access control is becoming increasingly popular. A fingerprint scanner will scan a user’s fingerprint and determine whether they have the right permissions to access a specific area.

Most other security systems have a higher risk of breaches caused by human error – for example, someone can potentially take advantage of a badge accidentally left behind to access a secure area. There is also the issue of forgotten and lost passes.

These problems are eliminated by the additional security provided by Fingerprint-based systems. It is very difficult for criminals to duplicate a fingerprint. Fingerprints can’t get misplaced and employees can’t forget to bring their fingerprints to work!

Fingerprint-based systems can save money on hardware and material costs; a fingerprint-based system tends to consist of a simple fingerprint reader and software. In addition to this, most upgrades to the system come in the form of software-based upgrades. With fingerprint systems, you don’t have to worry about re-programming badges, assigning employee passcodes or maintaining an inventory – thus resulting in lower maintenance costs.

Another great advantage of this type of access control is time management. Since time theft can cost a company a large amount of money, using a fingerprint scanner will prevent abuse of access control, for example, a coworker clocking another employee in or out. Each fingerprint scan can be logged via time and attendance software which will determine hours and location. This is a valuable tool to any HR department making light work of time and attendance. Therefore this results in more accurate time logs and fewer mistakes.

In Summary

  • It provides extra security. This type of access control is more secure since the fingerprint is unique and unable to be replicated.
  • Low maintenance cost. Compared to other systems, this type of access control has a much lower maintenance cost.
  • Does not require additional devices for opening the door. With the fingerprint access control, there is no need for using traditional keys, cards/fobs and switches.
