SmartMetric has announced that it has successfully incorporated doorway wireless frequencies into its credit card sized portable biometric fingerprint reader card. With one SmartMetric Biometric card, users can secure entry to doorways, offices and even computer systems. The card has built in fingerprint scanner Corporations that makes all these possible.
The SmartMetric Biometric card allows companies to integrate biometrics into existing contactless doorway entry systems. This card is a marked improvement on the contactless doorway entry cards as the card provides access only after the user touches the surface of the card. Once the user touches the card, scans and matches inside the card with the users pre-stored fingerprint, thus making the whole process safer than before.
The company is in talks with two of the world's leading distributors of contactless security card entry systems to develop this application. Shortly, one of the global leaders in the corporate security solutions may be appointed as the Global Distributor for the Corporate market. SmartMetric will be releasing a MiFare compatible biometric activated card within the first quarter of 2008 and the company is also planning to incorporate MiFare into its card.
With the “in-card” fingerprint scanner of the SmartMetric Biometric card, access is provided only after the owner of the issued card is verified. SmartMetric technology works with existing contactless doorway entry systems so its implementation and adoption by Corporations will be easy and affordable.
