What are Access Control Systems?
Biometrics is the technical term given to human body characteristics like fingerprints, eye retina and iris pattern, face geometry, hand prints, etc. Biometric verification is used to uniquely identify the person by evaluating one or more distinguishing biological traits. Biometrics vary person to person that’s why it is the best solution to identify accurately any person from the crowd.
Card-based access control has a major disadvantage such as card lost or “buddy punching”. This disadvantage can be overcome by using a biometric access control system. Every person has unique fingerprints so there are no possibilities of “buddy punching” and fingers cannot be lost. And it is more secure, accurate, and cost-effective.
