Some organizations have replaced barcode scanners with vein scanners. Instead of scanning a key fob, members scan the veins of their palm or finger (depending on the scanner style) when they check in, creating a numeric code based on location of certain biometric points within their palm/finger. Because vein patterns exist inside the body, it is practically impossible to recreate someone's biometric template.
By connecting palm/finger vein scanning devices to check-in stations instead, of barcode scanners, and entering the vein ID in place of the individual’s bar code, you can use palm and finger scanners instead of barcode scanners. Scanners convert the vein locations in a person’s palm/finger into a numeric code.
Keep in mind, while this method is the most secure, it might take a while to create everyone’s numeric profile. ACS recommends visiting our palm scanner page to learn more about the options available to your organization.
Bio Snap-On™ is a complete palm/finger vein recognition system that can be instantly integrated with any third party software package.
It can be used to complement or replace any external barcode or magnetic stripe device with biometric identification.
The vein scanning systems work by using both hardware and software in conjunction with ACS People, Checkpoint, OnDemand and HeadMaster v10.0. To learn more about the hardware and software requirements, click the links below.
