What are Biometric Door Systems and how do they work?
Security has always been a key concern to many homeowners and businessmen, whether it’s ensuring safety of the precious valuables or properties with physical locks or protecting data with multiple layers of encryption.
However, many have highlighted the flaws in those systems. For example, physical locks can be tampered or broken into with force, while digital lock, such as those using RFID, can be jammed or corrupted.
With the rapid advancement in technologies, security companies have developed a wide array of both software and hardware systems that protect your valuables. Biometric door system is one of the latest and most advanced in this line, combining the best of both physical and digital locks to ensure maximum security for your property.

Pros of Standalone Reader
Savings on Installation Costs
Standalone access controller reader is, as the name implies, a standalone device. This means that all components are within the device at the door and not distributed across the premises. The results in a reduction of costs otherwise associated to cabling, conduit and increased installation or labour costs. This is ideal for businesses with lower budget allocation for security purposes. These cost savings are usually the number one reason why standalone systems are chosen over fully networked access control systems.
No Loss of Keys
Having an Access Control System eliminates the need for company keys. Besides the risk of loss of keys, in the event that an employee leaves the company and fails to return the company key, you avoid being at the expense of making new keys or even changing the locks to secure against unauthorised access. With an Access Control System, you can simply remove the employee’s access rights from the system.
