HID Global adds biometrics to its Signo readers
HID Global announced its HID Signo Biometric Reader 25B — the latest addition to the company’s line of HID Signo Readers — and adds an API for integration with access control software solutions from HID partners. According to HID Global, this enables a single point of biometric template enrollment through an access control system; these templates can then be pushed to all connected devices simultaneously.
The new solution brings HID’s biometrics technology to the HID Signo Reader platform. It reads fingerprints of all types, including those that are hard-to-read where people have wet, dry, dirty, or worn fingerprints. With company’s patented multispectral imaging technology, the HID Signo Biometric Reader 25B captures fingerprint images from both the surface and the sub-surface of the skin, delivering consistent read performance regardless of environmental and skin conditions. Its liveness detection capabilities also prevent spoof attempts leveraging fake fingers or latent fingerprints.
The reader is paired with the web-based HID Biometric Manager software that performs configuration and management of the reader, including firmware updates over the network. In addition, the software enables enrollment of user’s fingerprint credentials for use with the different biometric authentication modes 1:1 verification and 1:N identification.
