Evolution of biometric and contactless access control systems

While companies around the world are trying to adapt to new conditions in the post-COVID era, many are deciding to switch to contactless access control systems. At the same time, the development of biometric technologies is accelerating, designed to protect businesses from new financial losses.
One of the main drivers for the development of biometric technologies has become the growing demand for the security and convenience of access control systems. Until recently, most companies relied on contact access control systems, in particular those that use fingerprints. For obvious reasons, in recent years, the safety and effectiveness of such systems has been called into question. The use of antiseptics creates risks of damaging fingerprint readers, reducing their effectiveness.
These shortcomings have led to the development of other, more reliable biometric technologies, such as face or iris recognition. However, such systems at first did not always show high accuracy and were associated with some inconvenience in use - due to the need to be located at a relatively short distance from the sensor.
Nevertheless, manufacturers of security systems are actively working to optimize and improve the corresponding equipment. Newer facial recognition cameras use more so-called nodal points - points on the face that cameras use to create a unique "fingerprint" of each face and further recognition. Many cameras also use infrared sensors to help distinguish a static photo from a real face. As a result, the speed, efficiency and safety of face recognition systems have increased.
The main factor holding back many companies from the transition to non-contact systems is concerns about the need to invest heavily in new equipment. Addressing this problem is facilitated by the fact that many manufacturers, including CrucialTrak, a provider of innovative contactless access control solutions, including palm vein recognition and contactless fingerprint recognition, use systems built on industry standards that support, for example, connectivity. older hardware via Wiegand. And databases using SQL make log migration and formatting much easier.
At the same time, the entry of biometric data is fast and can be performed either on one of the readers, or on the registration panel - an ergonomic device created specifically for this purpose. It scans biometric data quickly and accurately. Entering biometric data can take even less than a minute. Once biometric data entry is complete and readers are installed on site, employee authorization can be completed in less than a second.
