Deltabit (Finland) uses the Rabbit RCM3710 for biometric based building security solution.
With the advancement of computers and scanning equipment, fingerprint technology has become a virtually fail-safe method for personal identification and authentication.
Unlike passwords, keys, codes and building access cards, fingerprints are unique and cannot be shared or lost. This makes fingerprint scanning an ideal technology for security and access control.
Deltabit's system can open doors, register employees who enter or exit a building, calculate working hours, and control alarms systems with one press of the finger. All events are logged and sent through an Ethernet network to a server and database. The TCP/IP connection also allows other devices to be connected to the network for centralised communication for building security.
At the heart of the solution is the Rabbit RCM3710 Ethernet enabled RabbitCore from Dominion Electronics . Each access managed door and area has a control unit with a Rabbit RCM3710. If the network fails or the connection to the server is broken, the control units can operate independently.
The Rabbit RCM3710 logs each event with a time stamp and buffers it into memory, allowing events to be monitored at a later time. During power failures, the battery-backup keeps the real-time clock running.
Each person in the system has a profile to which certain restrictions or conditions can be applied. The system can control access to certain areas and log every entry or exit. If the system is tied to an anti-burglary system, the first person to gain entry can deactivate the alarm and the last person to exit can re-activate the system.
There is no need to carry any keys or remember codes. The system logs each event with a time stamp and buffers it into memory, allowing events to be monitored at a later time. During power failures, the battery-backup keeps the real-time clock running.
