We’ll see if fingerprints or retina can better secure your door than a key, and we’ll also see the limits of this sophisticated device. Biometric locks are not necessarily reserved for premises with a very high level of security. They can be useful in many cases, since it is a considerable time saver, in addition to allowing much-simplified management of access. Indeed, it is possible to grant access to multiple users, to add but especially to remove access easily, unlike the use of a code or a lock cylinder that would logically change to whenever there is a departure.
The main problem of this type of lock is in case of power failure. An alternative device must then be present to allow any way to open the lock: usually a code. However, it is advisable to have an inverter that will allow the lock to operate normally until the power failure is repaired.
Facial recognition of the Fingerprint Door Locks has been one of the most used security systems, for example, in mobile phones. It can also be used with an electronic security system, where it will make recognition of our face or also of our eye, something very common. Likewise, like all electronic security systems, you can give access to more than one person. You only need to properly configure the faces that the recognition sensor for locks can recognize.
The fingerprints are another type of recognition sensors for Fingerprint Access Control Systems that are frequently used in high-security safes with single access. For example, some company doors maintain high security divided by departments. In this case, these companies have a panel where the thumbprint (the most common) is placed. In this way, they give access to the door or panel that we want to access. But does it really work? Yes.
Panels with key
For both facial recognition and fingerprints, we need a fully electronic complete panel to collect this data. In the situation where you do not want to use a facial or fingerprint recognition for your home or business, you can do a combination in three ways:
- Facial recognition
- Special key
On the other hand, writing the key on the panel is the least certain way of recognizing sensor types for locks. However, you can make a custom key for everyone who can access the panel. Finally, we remind you that you need to have a good security and maintenance system for these panels to work perfectly.
Keyless door locks are a safe and advanced locking system used by a large number of organizations because of their advantages. Consisting the ability to change codes on a regular basis to improve security and ensure that users who no longer need access are no longer in possession of the code. Another major advantage of keyless door locks is that misplaced or stolen keys are no longer a problem. In case of doubt about the security of the building in the event of loss or theft of keys, changing a whole set of locks can be an expensive exercise and make you vulnerable until a replacement has been done.
