Biometric access control system secures access to US local government building

Tensor Biometric Access Control Readers

A biometric access control systems has been installed in order to grant authorized personnel access to a local government building in Hawaii after-hours, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

The Hawaii State Capitol has installed a biometric access control system that reads the veins of the authorized individual’s finger to provide access to the building. All Senate personnel have been invited to register and enroll in the voluntary system, and the same system will apply to the House of Representatives.

The system allows registered users to access the building from the rotunda and basement levels whenever the building is closed to the public, and the system will not affect public hours of operation of the building, officials have revealed.

Tensor offers complete peace of mind with Biometric Access Control

Biometric access control systems are the most secure and reliable alternative to old “lock and key” door access control methods.

Biometric technology uses human physical attributes as locks and keys, making it particularly suitable for access control systems on the buildings of large organisations. Using biometrics for security and identification requires meeting two challenges: they must be cheap enough and sufficiently simple to be used by ordinary users. Furthermore, for enhanced security, these biometric access control systems should combine two or more types of authentication, such as coupling fingerprints with key codes or passwords to provide greater trust that who is logging in is only who is expected to do so.
