Biometric technology offers the promise of an easy, secure method to make highly accurate verifications of individuals. Not only does this technology make our lives easier by eliminating the need to carry badges and other identification, but it prevents the use of forged tickets, badges, or passports. These verifications have broad applicability, and people are already being verified by biometrics in airports, office buildings, manufacturing centers, hospitals, and even amusement parks. A biometric scan can provide security access to protected areas, serve as a day pass at an attraction, punch an employee in at the start of the work day, or allow an executive access to his laptop computer.

Biometrics Access control security systems are designed to restrict physical entry to only users with authorization. Many organizations, governmental and private, have started adopting high label of access control security systems for physical entry into their facilities. Whether it is a simple non intelligent access control system like a punching in a password, or advanced biometric systems that scan and permit entry very specifically, there are many advantages to employing these security systems.

Biometric systems will collect and store this data in order to use it for verifying personal identity. The combination of biometric data systems and biometrics recognition/ identification technologies creates the biometric security systems. The biometric security system is a lock and capture mechanism to control access to specific data. In order to access the biometric security system, an individual will need to provide their unique characteristics or traits which will be matched to a database in the system. If there is a match, the locking system will provide access to the data for the user. The locking and capturing system will activate and record information of users who accessed the data.
