BIOMETRIC ACCESS CONTROL
Fingers And Faces Are Better Than Keys
FINGERPRINT READERS are now a tried and proven access control system. Fast, secure and simple to use. We’ve been manufacturing and installing them for over 15 years.
FACE SCANNERS are now becoming more affordable and popular in the aftermath of Covid. They give a great user experience with contactless, fast passage of movement for high traffic areas.
VEIN READERS offer an exceptionally high level of security to protect critical areas.
Almas’ biometric range of access control readers are stylish, robust, dust and water ingress proof and ensure that only the person enrolled can access that area, it’s not about the credentials they carry, but who they are.

Still got some questions?
These may help
Why is access control important?
You need to know who is on your site, and when, for a number of reasons; to protect intellectual property, GDPR sensitive data, server rooms, to keep people away from dangerous areas or equipment and to have a record of who is on site for health and safety reasons. Preventing unauthorised access to certain areas at specific times protects people, assets and property.
Are biometric access control systems expensive?
They aren’t free and they vary wildly depending on manufacturer, quality and software. What you don’t want is a cheap biometric access control system that’s easy to hack and where your users’ data won’t be secure. We have monthly and outright purchase plus maintenance options to suit almost all budgets and costs start from £59 per month.
How does facial recognition work?
Facial recognition works by utilising biometrics to create a template of your face through key, unique facial points. It then compares the template with information in a database of known faces to check if there is a match.
Can my fingerprint be stolen?
No, because we don’t keep a picture of your fingerprint on our database. During enrolement, unique points (called minutiae) on your fingerprint are analysed and mapped. Then these are coded into a binary template using a proprietary algorithm.
What is the cheapest biometric system?
If that’s what you’re looking for, then we probably won’t be for you. We don’t sell door entry systems that won’t keep your data secure. We won’t sell unreliable biometric readers.
We sell cost effective access control solutions starting from £59 per month.
Are biometric access control readers waterproof?
Yes, they are tested to IP for facial and IP for fingerprint. Don’t get us wrong, if you turn a fireman’s hose on them, you may have some issues, but for all but the most extreme conditions, our readers are robust, reliable and tamperproof.
