Enterprise operations expect electronic access control to be installed in a variety of business environments. But there is an option for businesses that want to take access control protection even further: biometric access control, which uses the biological characteristics of a person rather than a credential they carry.
How does biometric access control work?
Biometric access control relies on the user’s biological features to confirm their identity and give them access to a restricted area. Those features can be the person’s fingerprints, facial features or even eye patterns. Inside the system, there is infrared technology that scans the appropriate characteristics to either grant or deny them access.
Who uses biometric access control?
Biometric access control is used by all kinds of industries. It’s used in everything from airports, to banks, to hospitals, to childcare centers. Any building where the things inside are valuable or the people inside are vulnerable can be a good fit for biometric access control as a security solution.
What can biometric access control do?
Biometric access control can work well around the clock, even in the dark of night. That can be ideal for scenarios where afterhours employees, the cleaning crew or security will be onsite. It can also deny access to unauthorized people attempting access in those same low light conditions. And during the bustling morning arrivals, a biometric access control system can admit large numbers of people one by one as they enter. Buildings where hundreds of people will be coming in can have all authorized occupants safely inside in minutes; the more areas protected by biometric access control, the faster people can be admitted.
