How to Understand Biometric Access Control

What is biometric access control? Biometric access control is in reference to a type of access control, which is simply understood as the authorization of personnel to enter rooms or electronic databases that are confidential to the public. Companies may restrict the public from workrooms or restrict even some employees from information privileged only to top personnel.

Biometric access control takes a specialized approach to this science by controlling access based upon biological data of personnel. A system of biometric access control would be able to store and measure human bodily characteristics, such as a person’s fingerprints, their eyes (both the retina and iris) as well as their facial shape, hand shape and voice.
