The use of biometric technology has been on the rise for quite some time. Given the state of the world in 2020, the need for physical distancing and contactless credentials has pushed rapid growth in the adoption of these devices in facilities. Let's take a look at some of the trends our industry is seeing within the biometrics market:

Frictionless Biometrics 

Facial and iris recognition readers or touchless fingerprint readers are one avenue that will provide facilities with a secure and hygenic way of entering an area. As organizations still need to authenticate employees and personnel while decreasing physical contact, an increase in the deployment of biometrics is expected. For example, airports can use contactless biometrics to authenticate passengers entering departure gates with zero contact. 

Thermal Imaging 

There is increased popularity in the deployment of thermal imaging cameras as it is a perfect solution for social distancing, reducing cross infection and spotting potential elevated temperatures. These systems are also being used in conjunction with other systems such as occupancy counting and analytics to help control social distancing and capacity. LVS has their own temporary, stand-alone thermal imaging solution as well as a customized approach to integrating within an existing security system.

Integration & Added Security 

As the amount of different biometric devices continues to grow, so does the opportunity to integrate them within existing systems. This adds an additional layer of security as you are now allowing more devices, such as IP cameras, to communicate information. Using these technologies while integrated with mobile credentials and automated door openers allows for a completely touchless process. 

Decreasing Prices

Biometrics have been around for awhile, but the main deterrent for adopting the technology has been the hefty price tag. Now that these devices are necessary for our society to get back to work safely, the prices are decreasing as the market matures. There is also an expansion of use cases and sales numbers because of the ability to integrate with access control and other security systems. 

The terms touchless and frictionless hold new weight in the physical security industry, and various biometric technologies contribute to adopting both. Biometrics systems are now less expensive, have increased accuracy, and can integrate easily in many scenarios. The pandemic may have sparked new motivation for companies to take a closer look at biometrics, but the path for future expansion and adoption will continue expanding in the years to come. 

Let's talk about how biometrics can benefit the future and safety of your facility.
