Biometrics is a more sophisticated way of Access Control. It is used in computer science as a form of identification and access control and also to identify individuals in groups that are under surveillance.
Most common biometric access control is finger print reader, palm print reader, face and / or iris recognition.
There are many other forms of biometric recognition that use behavioural characteristics such as voice, signature, motion, keystroke patterns etc.
The finger print controller we use offer outstanding capabilities. For example we can learn a finger that, unlocks front gate / front door, auto disarms the house etc.
We can enrol a different finger to do the exact same functions except also send a silent duress report to the police.
So if you are under duress you can simply notify the monitoring centre you are in trouble which they can action appropriately with out the intruder knowing.
