The use of biometrics on the rise in building access control solutions
Biometric and opto-electronic technologies are becoming increasingly popular for building access control solutions, a news report on this topic has been able to suggest.
Biometrics technology is largely considered to offer a high degree of security and is extremely user-friendly – but its success relies on the effective application of highly efficient optoelectronic components, designed specifically for security applications.
Unique human characteristics – including facial features, the pattern of the iris, palm veins or retinal blood vessels as well as voice, fingerprints, palm-prints, handwritten signatures and hand geometry – are identified by the security system (for example, utilizing infrared light-emitting diodes, cameras, and so on), and then compared with previously stored biometrical data of authorised users.
There has been a huge leap in developments in biometric identification technology based on infrared light-emitting diodes, spurred on by new possibilities to make buildings, devices and applications safer and more convenient to access.
Perfecting the security systems with all components required for such technology is crucial for the safety of all users.
