Replacing the traditional methods of identification and security, biometric devices are being adopted world over to accurately identify personnel. The older methods included the use of PIN numbers, signatures and photo Ids, iris scan, voiceprint, facial recognition etc. These methods were easily tampered with and failed to create that sense of guarantee. Organizations incorporated newer technologies of biometric devices to tackle these gaping loopholes and ensure that proper safety norms were adopted. Fingerprint scanners capture the image of the fingerprint, which is different for every individual. The user has to simply place the finger on the scanner and the system will identify the person. The process of identifying a person through his fingerprints is a sure shot way to ascertain the identity of the individual. The convenience factor of biometric device has successfully eliminated the need for use of ID’s.
Fingerprint scanners have gained a variety of applicability in diverse fields. During any background check of volunteers at NGO’s or other organizations, fingerprint scanners come to great use. Such activities can be carried out by ascertaining that the volunteers who have come to participate are free from any criminal record. Fingerprint scanners help one recognise the true identity of the person in case it is hidden or manipulated. These biometric devices start working as soon as a user places the finger on the scanner. The fingerprint scanner immediately scans the image and finds the real identity from its existing records.
Biometric devices are designed craftily and are equipped with the most sensitive camera capable of capturing wet, dry and blurred images as well. The captured impression of the fingerprint is stored and can be printed for future use. They are easy to install and do not eat into much space and energy, another important aspect especially in outdoor activities.
Fingerprint Scanner biometric device is used for many other purposes such as Fingerprint Based Computer Login, Biometric Point of Sale Machines, Web Based Fingerprint Recognition Systems, Fingerprint Time and Attendance, Fingerprint Access Control. Not just this, it is also used for biometric identification in Slum Survey & Slum Re-development Projects, Domain Controller, Driver’s License, Biometric File Encryption, PC/workstation security, Network/enterprise security, Internet content security, E-commerce, B2B transactions, Electronic transactions, Bank and financial systems, Medical information systems and any password-based application.
