Secure Biometrics Eliminate cards and PIN codes with Horizon's biometric solutions
Biometric identification is no longer a high-tech futuristic concept. It is now being used in school environments as a practical and affordable method of identification. As you may know, biometrics are automated methods of identifying a person based on a physiological characteristic such as face, hand geometry, fingerprint, retina, iris, and voice.
Introducing the NEWEST technology in POS Biometrics to Move Students Through the Line!
Horizon now offers the newest biometric technology on the market, the dual finger scanner. The dual finger scanner solves some of the issues currently experienced with palm vein readers:
- Students do NOT need to re-register their dual finger scan each year, as they do with the palm vein reader. This is a time-consuming and tedious process!
- Dual finger scans are speedier than palm reads
- The new dual finger scans recognize up to 90 degrees in rotation of fingers—a huge improvement over the necessity of accurate hand placement on the palm vein readers
Benefits of using biometrics for student identification
Improve your operation
Serving line speeds improve dramatically when using biometrics rather than traditional identification methods. With biometrics, you will avoid backed-up lunch lines due to misplaced cards or forgotten PIN codes.
Save time and money
Your staff will no longer spend precious time reissuing PIN codes and replacing forgotten, lost, or stolen swipe cards. And, it's not just time you are saving; you will no longer have the cost of producing the cards.
Boost security and protect privacy
Horizon understands the importance of personal privacy and the need for particular care in the education setting. Consequently, several important security features are included to fully protect the privacy of those using the system:
• Fingerprint images are NOT stored
• Fingerprint data is stored in a proprietary format
• All fingerprint data is stored using the AES 128-bit encryption algorithm
Instead of storing fingerprint images, the system only stores templates that are a numeric representation of the individual fingerprint. Templates can be used for matching, but the actual fingerprint cannot be reconstructed. It is gradually becoming common knowledge that biometrics actually protect personal privacy. You can rest assured that fingerprint images are not stored anywhere and can never be recreated from the encrypted digital templates.
