However each of these systems has inherent drawbacks
and limitations. For example traditional access control
systems will allow any purposeful intruder to steal
a card and gain access in an apparently 'legitimate'
Biometric Security solves this problem and all the
associated issues including problems with lost cards,
forged cards and worn or damaged cards. For users the
system also has the advantage of removing the need to
carry cards or remember pin numbers. The price and availability
of biometric identification equipment have improved
significantly in the last few years, as a result biometric
systems are moving out of specialised high security
applications into the mainstream access control market.
Various types of biometric systems are currently being
used for real-time identification, the most popular
are based on face recognition and fingerprint matching.
However, there are other biometric systems that utilise
iris and retinal scan, speech, facial thermograms, and
hand geometry. For some very high security operations
ICEL Pvt. Ltd. may advise on a twofold process that includes
both biometric and card identification. All the biometric
systems we install allow the biometric readers the ability
to compensate for environmentally induced changes such
as cuts, swelling, temperature, and dirt
ICEL Pvt. Ltd. has been at the forefront of biometric
access control systems design and installation since
the technology first became available. Customers who
have benefited from our expertise and experience in
this area include HM Prisons, data centres, financial
institutions and research establishments.
