Fingerprint recognition and iris scanning are the most well-known forms of biometric access control. However, facial recognition and (finger and palm) vein pattern recognition are also gaining in popularity as a biometric access control solution.

There are two advantages if you use biometrics for access control. Firstly, it is a convenient technology: there is no need to remember anything or carry anything with you. Secondly, a high level of security is achieved: identification on the basis of biometric characteristics is much less susceptible to fraud.

In the area of identification biometrics offer an additional advantage. As the characteristics concerned are specific to the individual, there is little or no chance of identity fraud.

Palm vein pattern recognition is based on the recognition of unique vein patterns. However, as more reference points are used than in the case of finger vein pattern recognition, this is an even simpler and more secure identification method.

The technology, which cannot be copied (or only with extreme difficulty), is currently regarded as the best available method in the area of biometric access control systems, alongside iris scanning. The Palm ID is fast and accurate and offers a high level of user convenience as a biometric access control solution.

Biometric access control: the Palm-ID

The vein pattern can be scanned using an infrared camera. As veins are under the skin rather than on the surface, the Palm-ID is considerably more resistant to fraud for biometric access control than fingerprint recognition. Besides being accurate and fraud-proof, the Palm-ID is also hygienic, quick and extremely easy to use.


  • Very user-friendly: use your palm to gain access
  • Extremely accurate and resistant to fraud
  • Easy to combine with existing security systems (e.g. card readers)
  • Highest security at database level
