Access Control with Biometric Identification

The HandKey II brings the security and convenience of biometric identification to any access control application at an affordable price. HandKey II terminals verify people based on their unique hand patterns, not a card, key or PIN that can easily be transferred to someone else. 

The elimination of cards drives down the cost of administration while substantially increasing the level of security. Users appreciate the convenience of never worrying about keeping a card or key.

When used with HandNet 2.0 for Windows, you gain the benefits of centralized access control. Up to 1000 HandKey II terminals can be monitored in real time, and customizable reports may be defined, saved, and printed showing usage statistics for all access control terminals set up in the system.

The metal ID3D HandKey is also available.
