Biometrics refers to the descriptive identification of individuals based on their characteristics and traits. Because each individual has distinctive traits, biometric systems are used to identify these features and incorporate them as a form of access control. They are usually integrated with electronic locking systems.
The most popular form of biometrics is fingerprint recognition. The system reads the template of the finger. It remembers and stores the fingerprint in its system. Once it is memorized, biometric system is programed to recognize the fingerprint and authorize the door to unlock when it is used.

Facial recognition systems are a form of access control that is devised based on the features of an individual's visage. The software uses algorithms to analyze the size, and shape of the eyes, nose, cheekbones, and jaw. The template is memorized into the system. The face is then recognized by the reader and authorizes the door to unlock.

Electronic locks are locking mechanisms that use an electric current to operate. Most designs nowadays only require batteries, ensuring the locks will still work even in the event of a blackout. Electronic locks are usually standalone locks that grant access to the user. While they can be installed to wires to connect with the network, most of the newer designs are wireless and have wi-fi capabilities. They can also be hooked up to alarms, ensuring that no one without access will be able to force their way in.The great thing about electronic locks is that you can control every aspect of it. There is a key bypass that is integrated with the FOB key or card to override the locking device. Since each key has its own signature it creates an audit trail and you can see who has entered where and the exact time they did so. You can also program the key to only allow access during certain times. Thus, one person's key may work only from 8am to 6pm on Mondays and another may work from 4pm to 10 pm on Thursdays.

As technology advances, card access is becoming more outdated and key FOBs are gaining traction. The reason for this is simply because key FOBS are smaller and easier to remember. Cards are usually placed in the wallet while key FOBs are a small device you can attached to key chains. While people may forget their wallets at home, they are far less likely to forget their key chain.Cards and key FOBs are the primary source of entry for standalone locks with access control capabilities. They are quick and simple to use and they are convenient in commercial buildings where you have to control who is able to come in and out.
