A quick read about the benefits of biometric access control cards for Students and Universities
With students and staff on site, with some of them are live-in, their security is paramount. Biometrics, being individually specific, solves key issues relating to identification of who’s entering premises and are increasingly popular for access to buildings, doors, and assets - digital and physical.

Fuse Identities offers a biometric card with built-in fingerprint sensor and on-card matching. Using card based biometric identification for access control is a secure and convenient way of eliminating unauthorized access in school facilities making it a safe environment for students and staff.

Biometric access control cards are flexible enough to support the needs of both students and employees. As modern Access Control systems support fast, flexible policy changes and detailed reporting on accessed zones and used devices, the biometric cards can be given to all or a portion of the population to cost-effectively regulate and monitor who is within any premises. This is done by defining zones of access, privileges for groups or even specific individuals, for certain times of day or any combination of these.

Taking it further, card functionality could also be combined with electronic purse,for example in-school cafeteria purchases.
