InBio Pro is the security industry’s first door access controller which can store & match fingerprint templates directly on the controller, itself. This eliminates the need for large-footprint expensive 3rd party stand-alone fingerprint readers & template management software. Instead, inBio Pro uses inexpensive slave fingerprint readers (ZKAccess model FR1500-ID) installed at the door. When users place their finger on the FR1500-ID sensor, the user’s fingerprint template is then communicated to the inBio Pro controller via RS485 where the template is subsequently compared against an embedded database of up to 3,000 templates. Upon a positive template match, inBio releases the door lock (assuming the user has necessary door access rights).
