The Sagem Biometrics Fingerprint Reader

The Sagem biometric fingerprint reader has amazing features. Getting it will definitely be a worthy investment.

These readers are available at Itatec. View our products or contact us for more information regarding Sagem and our products.

Here Are Its Features

It has a 500 DPI optical fingerprint sensors, MI fare card reader built into recommended model allowing a secondary entry method if desired. This reader is able to operate independently of the Biometric server software. There are individually adjustable false-acceptance rates for each Sagem Biometric reader and there are also outdoor and false finger detection models available.

Biometrics consist of automated methods of recognizing a person based on unique physical characteristic. Each type of biometric system, while different in application, contains at least one similarity: the biometric ID must be based upon a distinguishable human attribute such as a person’s fingerprint, iris, voice pattern or even facial pattern. Today Biometric fingerprint readers are by far the most popular form of biometric access security used, with a variety of access control systems on the market intended for general and mass market usage. Long gone are the huge bulky Biometric fingerprint scanners; now a Biometric fingerprint reader can be small enough to be incorporated into a laptop for security.

A fingerprint is made of a series of ridges and grooves. Once a Biometric fingerprint is captured the system locates the minutia points. These minutia points occur where the lines of the ridges begin, end, branch off and merge with other ridge lines. These points are then mapped and a line is drawn between each point. This creates a map of how each point relates to the other points. The map is then stored as a data stream called a minutia template in a database for future comparison with other presented fingerprints. It is important to note that during the entire process no fingerprint images are stored on the system and a fingerprint image cannot be recreated from the minutia template.

Facial Recognition

Traditionally, identity verification has relied on something you know, such as a password, or something you have, such as a card or pin access device. Biometrics is unique in that it is based on the physical characteristics of an individual. Biometric facial recognition is just one type of biometrics identification. Other types include iris scanning, fingerprint, and voice recognition. Given that portrait photos are already part of the current identification system for photo cards, it is simple to merge this with a biometric access system.

Techniques In Biometric Facial Recognition

The first one is the facial geometry which uses geometrical characteristics of the face. It sometimes uses several cameras, like 3D or 2D, in order to get better accuracy. There is also skin pattern recognition which is the visual skin print and facial thermo gram that uses an infrared camera to map the face temperatures. To prevent a fake face or mole from faking out the system, many systems now require the user to smile, blink, or otherwise move in a way that is human before verifying. The system can be used to compare the photograph taken when a person enters the premises, against the images stored in the centralised security system.
