Why use biometric access control?
What is biometric access control?
Biometric access control is identifying people by using their unique physical or behavioural informations to handle their access to premises or data.
How much does Optima Access Control Software cost?
Giving you an accurate price involves us understanding how your site runs, the flow of people or traffic, the size of cable runs and structure of the building, the different types of access control readers that you will use and much more.
The starting point is a no-obligation free consultation where our Security Consultant will understand your needs.
Get in touch to get the ball rolling.
How does biometric access control system work ?
Firstly, you enrol an employee by recording their fingerprint, their face or venal network with a biometric reader.
This template is then assigned to the user record.
You add the user to the relevant readers and time groups so they have access to the correct areas at the right times.
When the user then wants to open the door or access as area, he uses his biometric credential on the reader. The reader then checks whether this matches a biometric template in the software, and if it does, it sends a signal to the door controller to release the electronic door lock.
