It then instantly turns itself on and scans the finger.

Smart Capture™ is another highly popular feature of SecuGen Hamster Pro. It boasts of smart auto-adjustment of the brightness of its sensor based on the quality of fingerprints presented to it for scanning. It is thus able to capture fingerprints in difficult scenarios such as for fingers with aged, wet, dry or scarred scan with ease. This feature also allows Hamster Pro to scan with quality even under bright sunlight and other ambient light conditions.
