Biometric access control systems and smart card readers

The Tensor biometric access control readers are compact fingerprint and smart card-activated access control devices featuring Suprema’s next-generation biometric technology and security platform. Secure your site with the next generation of advanced security technology.

Designed for either indoor (T3464) or outdoor (T3464x) use, these biometric fingerprint readers are designed to meet the requirements of those who want the assurance that only the right people can gain access to sensitive or dangerous areas on their sites. The T34xx series of biometric fingerprint readers allow you to mix fingerprint reading and non-fingerprint reading scanners on the same security network. They also feature built-in card readers for enhanced security via 2-factor authentication.

T3464: Biometric access control readers for indoor use

The T3464 (Suprema BioEntry P2) is a compact fingerprint access control device featuring Suprema’s advanced security platform.

It provides class-leading performance and security by featuring Suprema’s latest fingerprint algorithm coupled with a powerful 1.0GHz CPU. The T3464 also provides added flexibility in system design by featuring multi-card reading with dual-frequency RFID card technology. This reader enhances the user experience by offering very high matching speeds, a high-precision OP6 optical sensor and the latest Suprema fingerprint algorithm.

Featuring a mullion-type sleek and elegant design with a 50mm width, the biometric access control readers from Tensor perfectly fit in in narrow spaces and door frames.

Advantages of biometric access control systems

Using a biometric fingerprint reader helps improve the overall security of your site. As everyone has a unique fingerprint, replicating this type of credential is very difficult.

Identification using biometric readers also helps establish a solid audit trail to help create accountability. Every action or transaction will be recorded and this is documented to reduce the possibility of misuse or fraud.

Biometric fingerprint technology can also help cut costs such as the issuance of ID cards, and replacing lost or damaged cards.

biometric access control case study

Case study: Shoe Zone

The first time Shoe Zone installed Tensor’s time, attendance and access control systems were back in 2005. A staple of the highstreets for over 100 years, Shoe Zone has over 400 stores in different towns and cities throughout the UK. Their head office, situated in Leicester, employs 300 people and is looked after by property manager, Steven Chater. Our reporter recently caught up with Steven to share his experiences with the Tensor systems.
