Access

made using humans'
unique physical

With a pandemic

Biometric Diversity
I
ntegrators are faced with ever-increasing
choices when it comes to access control.
Th e security industry has a half-century
of experience with door-mounted readers,
plastic cards and PINs. Lately, there's been
a movement toward replacing the credentials
with employee smartphones. And then there is
biometric technology, most often based on fi ngerprint,
facial and iris recognition technologies.
Some people still view biometric devices as
something from a spy movie, available at a cost
that warrants their use only in mission-critical
government facilities. But it's no longer the
1990s and cost-eff ective biometric technology
is used now in everything from enterprise
organizations to small businesses. Most people
use some form of biometrics daily - often to
unlock their smartphones.
Biometrics off er a convenient, quick and accurate
solution for access control and more for
any facility. Unlike a plastic credential, an iris
pattern, a fi ngerprint or facial structure can't be
lost or shared with an unauthorized user. With
biometric technology, there is no need to carry
plastic credentials or remember a PIN.

Following a one-time system enrollment,
employees are immediately recognized at
any other organizational facility on the same
network. And biometrics are highly secure -
breaking into a system yields hackers encrypted
identifi ers that can't be copied or reused.
Opportunities Abound
Many organizations are looking to replace aging
Wiegand wiring protocol systems that lack
encryption between cards and readers, making
it easy for hackers to intercept signals and create
working clones. Th is is an excellent opportunity
for integrators to introduce biometrics.
Biometrics can become a profi t center for integrators
as the solutions become readily accessible
and cost-eff ective for end users. Here are
a few ideas for incorporating biometrics into a
security plan.
Biometrics are well suited for protecting revenue
at amenity-driven businesses that charge
membership fees. Gyms, golf courses and other
operations lose money when members share access
cards with nonmember friends. Installing
biometric readers at entries matches guests with
