Why Access Control Systems are safer than Biometric Systems

All our lives, we have been told that biometrics are safer than any other mode of security. Axeze would beg to differ. What we bring to the table is something that no other security system can match.

You might have seen the movie “Face/Off”, where Nicolas Cage and John Travolta play a pair of FBI agents who undergo surgery to switch faces. It’s a great action movie, but the science is laughable. The point being, if you try to remove somebody’s fingerprint or facial features, they will still be able to use them. You don’t have that problem with an access control system. When you set up an access control system, you assign each person a unique code, and nobody else can use that code. So, whether your employees are on vacation or out sick, their codes will still work. And unlike biometric systems, access control codes can easily be reset if someone leaves the company or loses his/her smart key.

If you’re out in the market looking to get biometric security for your building, you should be aware of how incessant and tedious the process is. The installation requires every user to register their fingerprints individually which takes so long, one could go on a vacation and come back. Biometric Systems can be used as a security mechanism, but contradictorily they are also vulnerable to being hacked and limit your privacy. Axeze Access Control Systems on the other hand eliminate these issues altogether.

It’s fascinating how the security industry has evolved over the years, but things have changed drastically ever since COVID-19 came into existence. Contactless procedures have become more popular, and it makes perfect sense because it’s safer. As a result, biometric readers have become downright dangerous as several people use their hands on the same reader which keeps on collecting dust and harmful infections.

This is where Axeze access control comes in.

Businesses were in need of a security system they could rely on, and we delivered with our top-of-the-line RFID chips and readers.

If this still doesn't convince you to expand to Access Control, there's another advantage which will certainly change your mind. Believe it or not, biometrics have the capability of putting your whole identity at risk. This is because all your details are accessible through your fingerprints and your face, even the ones on your national ID card. With Access Control Systems, the need to worry about this issue is eliminated altogether as the employee is assigned an office issued unique ID, which does not require any complex details other than your name. It is almost unreal how efficient the process is.

So, what’s the verdict? Are access control systems more efficient than biometric systems? In short, yes. Access control systems are faster, easier to use and manage, and don’t require people to deal with complex issues that come with biometric systems. If you’re looking for a more secure way to protect your building, we recommend investing in an access control system.
