Biometric Sensors & Detectors
A wide range of biometric sensors & detectors are available to consumers for security and access control management. Biometrics refers to methods for recognizing individual people based on unique physical and behavioral traits. Physiological biometrics are one class of biometrics that deals with physical characteristics and attributes that are unique to individuals.
Biometric sensors/detectors are useful in several industries as well as to consumers for access control, identity access management and information technology applications.
Biometric sensors work by producing electrical currents when they scan a user’s physical characteristic. Many physical characteristics may be scanned by a biometric sensor including eyes, fingerprints, or DNA. Sensors contain an analog to digital converter enabling it to digitize the image and store the digital information in memory so that it can verify the user next time he or she needs to authenticate their identity.
There are several applications for Biometric Sensors offered by an array of companies. These applications include: fingerprint sensor, enrollment stations, MOC technologies, fingerprint locks and networking ID verification. Sensors can be touch-less, using thermal and optical stripe line sensors.
Biometric sensors and detectors for locks and safes eliminate some of the inevitable nuisances and weaknesses of the conventional lock and key. And Sensors are beginning to revolutionize computer and network security being more effective, accurate and useful in the information technology industry, providing convenience and secure user authentication at low cost.
