Provider of biometric identification solutions, BioLink, announced recently the availability and mass production of FingerPassIC, new biometric terminal door-locks and turnstiles that can change the way employees enter their building or track their work hours.
The new solution is a biometric terminal that includes a keypad and display as well as an optical fingerprint scanner and reader of contactless Mifare cards to allow control of physical access and recording of employee work hours by identifying them through biometrics.
Fingerprints offer secure identification as they can't be lost or forged, and so they are a recommended tool for everyday employees. For one time visitors, Contactless ID cards are a good solution and for highly restricted areas, two-factor identification like fingerprints and the card can be used together to ensure more secure access.
Once a person is successfully identified, the terminal issues a command to open an electromagnetic door-lock, turnstile or gate and at the same time registers the employee's arrival and departure times in the system.
The solution may also be used in conjunction with the company's BioTime offering which provides biometric time tracking and access control for the whole enterprise, including remote locations.
Earlier this month, BioLink announced
a partnership with ADC, a leading Vietnamese supplier of security solutions. A report published on PRLEAP.com, noted the alliance will focus on implementing biometric technologies with state authorities and commercial structures to deploy identification documents with embedded biometrics such as passports, visas, e-documents, etc.
