Biometric access control systems could be used for gambling control in Japan


The Japanese government considers deploying biometric access control systems in a bid to keep tabs on their citizens’ gambling, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

Japan’s Diet voted to legalize integrated resorts in late 2016 and lawmakers are now in the process of developing a framework of regulation for a casino industry that has the potential to be one of the biggest in the world.

The Government plans to implement several consumer protection proposals designed to limit citizens’ exposure to gambling. This would limit Japanese citizens and foreigners living in the country to three visits to a casino in a single week and ten within 28 consecutive days.

Tensor Biometric Access Control Systems – enhanced security and peace of mind

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.

Tensor Plc, the UK’s number one manufacturer and installer of time and attendance and access control systems, supplies a range of top-range, reliable and affordable biometric access control systems based on Smart Card electronics combined with a biometric fingerprint reader.
