Like many other technologies, biometric devices offered today are products that came about thanks to commercial companies capitalizing on military research and development. Processes currently used to safeguard top secret military and government facilities that have migrated into the public...

The system is network-based, with each unit having its own unique TCP/IP address. Data collected at each time clock is automatically upload to the server, while data information or configurations made at the network level such as additions or deletions of users, may be selectively distributed to each time clock unit. The FaceKey Manager software supports any number of time clock units. In the event that communication with the network fails, the time clock units will continue to operate and collect data, which will be uploaded when communication with the server is reestablished. The Manager software automatically synchronizes all time clocks with the network.
Recognition Systems’ Biometric HandReaders
Recognition Systems’ biometric HandReaders simultaneously analyze more than 31,000 points and instantaneously records more than 90 separate measurements of an individual’s hand - including length, width, thickness and surface area -- to verify that the person using the device is really who he or she claims to be. The HandReader compares this information with a “template” of the individual’s hand that has previously been stored in the reader, on a server or on a card. Once the person has been identified as a valid user, a door can be opened, access can be provided, or time recorded. The reading and verification process takes less than a second with impeccable reliability.
Time & Attendance: Improved payroll accuracy is guaranteed by the elimination of “buddy-punching;” stopping time fraud thereby lowering labor costs and providing a fast ROI (return on investment).
Costs are further reduced by eliminating badges. With the HandPunch, your hand is your badge.
Access Control: From major government applications to commercial buildings, HandKey hand geometry products provide security, reliability and convenience. Their low, field proven error rates translate into high reliability.
High volume, high throughput environments cannot tolerate errors, so the value of HandRreaders increases as the population grows. HandKeys protect 95 percent of all nuclear power plants in the United States.
Identity Verification: This is a project-oriented market. The HandKey is used as a means to positively identify a person holding a transaction card, driver’s license, national ID card, passport, Visa, or other documents. Current installations are in place at the Immigration and Naturalization INSPASS stations at JFK, Newark and Toronto airports; as well as in the food services systems at the University of Georgia. Banks, both domestic and international, are looking into this approach as a way to put a person’s bank account on a memory card. Programs are also being planned for biometric identification and verification of government benefits recipients.
