Biometric systems to help make schools’ lunch lines more efficient


Biometric identification systems have a widespread range of useful applications that go way beyond access restriction and control. One of the best examples regarding the intelligent implementation of biometric technologies comes from North Adams in Massachusetts, where schools will be deploying biometrics as a way to make the lunch line more efficient.

As part of this project, schools will be replacing swipe cards, a news report revealed. This will allow for fast and secure payment while also protecting financial details of underprivileged students and giving parents a better idea of how their children are eating via online transaction tracking.

Due to a lack of proper information on the program, some of the pupils’ parents expressed concerns regarding the security of biometric data. However, those concerns were swiftly addressed, since the fingerprint scanners used in the schools don’t store full fingerprints, just the information that allows them to match certain characteristics to an account expressed as a number.

As the UK market leader in the field of access control and time and attendance solutions, Tensor supplies an extensive range of products that actively employ biometric authentication, including fingerprint readers, hand scanner terminals and facial recognition solutions.

The biometric readers in Tensor’s T34xx series feature an elegant case and are easy to use. They target specifically those users who want the absolute peace-of-mind, certainty and the assurance that only the right people can gain access to your sensitive or dangerous areas.

The biometrics solution supports Control and Reset functions, and also comes equipped with a range of connectivity options, such as one RS485 interface to clock and External Scanner interface, 1 port with full modem control ( Modem RS232 Interface) and 2 SPI ports (one port is used for scanner interface).

If you’d like to find out more about the range of biometric readers supplied by Tensor, not to mention the range of access control and Time and Attendance solutions they can be integrated into, just contact us or Book a Demo, our representatives will be more than happy to answer all of your questions and queries.
