Lincroft, New Jersey’s Oak Hill Academy has installed the Fujitsu PalmEntry access control system at access points across its 20-acre campus. Oak Hill Academy administrators chose the PalmEntry solution for its dependable, non-intrusive biometrics technology. The academy currently registers its fifth through eighth grade students in the PalmEntry system along with all faculty and staff.
The PalmEntry system leverages Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric technology and biometric palm vein sensors with near-infrared light to capture students’ palm vein pattern. These patterns are then used to generate a biometric template that can be matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users.
Unlike other biometric readers, the PalmSecure device does not come into direct contact with the skin, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unaffected by external factors such as skin conditions and types. Registration into the PalmEntry system takes less than one minute, with authentication taking less than one second.
