Biometric Hand Geometry Recognition System

Ut sagitti’s ultrices urna eget erat non

Hand geometry biometric technology simultaneously analyses more than 31,000 points and more than 90 measurements of an individual’s hand-including length, width, thickness and surface area-to verify that the person using the device is really who he or she claims to be. The hand reader compares this information with a “template” of the individual’s hand that has previously been stored in the reader, on a server or on a card. Once the person has been identified as a valid user, a door can be opened, access can be provided and time may be recorded.

Hand geometry measures the size and shape of a person’s hand, including length, width, thickness and surface area. When the user places his or her hand on the platen of a device like the Schlage HandPunch, the device scans the hand to determine if the profile stored in the system matches the hand on the platen. In many cases, a swipe card or PIN may also be required to allow access.
