Incorporating Biometrics Into Your Home Security System

May 14, 2012 - 

Security systems can actually become less complex if they incorporate fingerprint biometrics. There is a common belief that if biometrics are incorporated into your home security system, it will become more sophisticated, and therefore more expensive. This is in fact a myth.

Incorporating biometrics into the security is not costly. Homeowners and small businesses can affordably use biometrics to secure their property from intruders and theft. Many are beginning to use fingerprint technology because it is inexpensive and convenient.

How often do you see someone forget or, worst case scenario, lose their office keys, while everyone is waiting for them to unlock the door? Not to mention the fact that it will cost an exorbitant amount to have a professional locksmith unlock the door and have the door lock replaced. Biometric fingerprint door locks are the solution. It sounds like something out of a James Bond movie, fingerprint-reading locks for your home. But the technology is becoming more common. You can find most reliable fingerprint scan locks now at the local hardware store or popular national chains.

Imagine using a unique your thumbprint to effortlessly identify and verify that you are who you claim to be. That is the power of biometrics technology. If you and your family don’t want to ever worry about keys again, then using a biometric thumbprint door lock is a key solution to your problem.

Biometric fingerprint door locks have tremendous benefits when compared to conventional key door locks, combination door locks, keyless keypad lock or card reader door locks. Fingerprint locks can only be opened by a specific person based on their own unique biometric signature. Fingerprint door locks therefore excel in security protection, convenience, and speed.

How does the fingerprint reader work? An authorized person has their fingerprint physical characteristic scanned and turned into a numerical algorithm which is then entered into a database. The authorized person must subsequently provide that same fingerprint to be scanned and recognized by the fingerprint reader before access is granted.
