Biometric security devices measure unique characteristics of a person such as finger prints or facial features.

 

A key advantage of biometric technology when compared to more traditional solutions, is that it is directly linked to an individual user and therefore not easily compromised through theft or misuse.

 

Most biometric systems are easy to use – people do not need to remember passwords, PIN numbers or carry access control fobs. If very high security is needed, it is possible to use different biometric technologies in combination or alongside a more traditional system.
