Project Fingerscan in an S3-Laboratory
The area of an S3-Laboratory is entered and excited only by a passage. The passage area may only be entered or left by authorized personnel after definitive identification. The presence as well as the actual position of individual staff in the passage and laboratory areas is displayed on monitors.


Access controls
It is more and more accepted that biometry is not only advantageous for high-security-applications but is also extremely comfortable to use (”...you always have your key with you“). Therefore it can also be used in other fields. Thus industry and service businesses have begun to control biometrically the access of their employees and even their clients and visitors.


Examples
  • A number of nuclear power stations combine their existing card access systems with fingerprint recognition for the inner critical areas.
  • A number of banks secure the access to their clients' safes by using fingerprints so that the client can open his safe without having to be accompanied by a bank clerk. In some banks even heavy safe-doors are being secured by using fingerprints.
  • A large jeweller's centre uses fingerprint recognition for its automatic doors. Over 30 doors as well as the reception are equipped with such devices.

Time registration
Experts estimate that in European companies approximately one hour per employee is lost every week by fraudulent time registration (e.g. ”Clocking in for a colleague“). A lot of business managers do not want to accept these numbers but fraud takes place nevertheless. Businesses frequently changing, seasonal and temporary employees are particularly susceptible.


Biometric time registration eliminates this kind of fraud completely. Model calculations show that the cost of introducing biometric time registration is compensated within six months by the elimination of time fraud.


Examples
  • Banks
  • Institutes
  • Software companies
