The SARGENT BioFob offers wireless biometric security in a handheld device. BioFob uses fingerprint-based biometrics. It integrates easily with existing RF infrastructures, making it simple to overlay biometric verification into existing access control systems. The device is compatible with HID and Indala RFID systems and Bluetooth technology. No wiring or separate databases are needed. All fingerprint capture, encoding, processing and verification is done on the BioFob, and the user's credentials, not their biometrics, are transmitted wirelessly to access points or specified authorities.
The BioFob achieves enhanced security without sacrificing personal privacy. Since all biometric information is stored on the device, there is no need for a centralized biometric database. The BioFob can be ordered pre-programmed with facility and ID codes or, with a Device Configuration Module, each device can be individually programmed for physical access.
