Biometrics

Biometrics are a form of identification which is traditionally used for security, such as border control and police profiling. However, as passwords and pin numbers become compromised, biometric identification has also started to replace commercial resources such as phone passwords and key fobs at work. A biometric kiosk could be a fingerprint kiosk or, by incorporating a facial recognition camera, a touchless kiosk allowing for a contactless check in. A touchless user interface is becoming rapidly more popular post-pandemic.

There are five primary types of biometrics used within access control:
– Eyes (iris recognition). This uses identifying features within the iris.
– Eyes (retina recognition). This uses the patterns of veins at the back of the eye.
– Face recognition. This process analyzes facial features.
– Fingerprint recognitions. This uses the finger pattern
– Finger geometry recognition. This uses 3D finger image to determine identity

Biometrics in Industries

Travel

Passport scanners, biometric fingerprint readers and facial recognition cameras allow for the highest border control security yet, and it can all be done frictionlessly using an integrated kiosk solution.

Security & Access Control

Access control defines the way by which resources are protected and kept secure. As biometric technology has advanced and more and more industries invest in its development, the technology has become accessible for consumers to easily use. Users are able to simply place their fingerprint on the scanner and be able to access office space.

Leisure

Customers can gain access to their leisure complexes or premises in which they have membership without the hassle with a card or sign in. They can just use a biometric scanning kiosk for quick entry.

More Add-On Devices

Scanners

Scanners are valuable devices across a multitude of industries, from travel to retail. We integrate kiosk barcode scanners, kiosk QR code scanners and kiosk document scanners into our enclosures, depending on the use case. They can be fully integrated and retro-fitted into existing kiosk enclosures. Tablet scanner stands are transformative for improving efficiency across a wide variety of sectors.

Printers

A touch screen kiosk with printer can be used in a wide range of settings. An iPad kiosk stand with printer or any touch screen kiosk with printer is hugely versatile for printing receipts, vouchers, postage stickers, tickets, photos and more. A computer kiosk with printer can print documents, whilst simple display kiosk printing is perfect for smaller tasks that can be made more efficient, such as visitor management entry tickets.

Keyboards

Some industries may require an iPad kiosk stand with keyboard. imageHOLDERS are proud of their innovative designs and the building of enclosures for a computer kiosk with keyboard and, even more so, enclosures that can house a tablet stand with keyboard. imageHOLDERS created a kiosk with keyboard specifically for the Microsoft Surface tablet, which the first in the world to support the tablets optional keyboard accessory. imageHOLDERS has secured the official ‘Designed for Surface’ approval, cementing our position as trusted partners of Microsoft.

Payment

The surge in self-service requires a kiosk with card reader. Our kiosk credit card reader enclosures house multiple different tablet or iPad chip and pin devices, allowing for efficient and safe purchases on self-service kiosks. These are ideal for retail, restaurants and hospitality.

Cameras

There are an abundance of uses for a kiosk with camera. It can be used for digital signage with facial recognition, a temperature verification kiosk or for access control. A temperature kiosk is now the norm and is highly effective in assessing body temperature on the temperature check kiosk, using an infrared camera.

USB Hubs

From chip and pin to USB adapters, imageHOLDERS have forged relationships with adapter and hub manufacturers to ensure a complete business solution. We optimise a USB kiosk using our expertly developed USB-C hubs. Our USB-C Hubs are secure with a dual screw locking fitment, providing an enhanced, reliable interconnection.

Contactless

Contactless covers a wide array of different applications. The most common technologies are NFC, RFID and Mifare. The products we integrate are compatible with NFC, RFID and Mifare applications. We are moving more towards contactless technology such as gesture and voice control.
