Traditional biometric machines which store fingerprints can be compromised easily however our devices are more secure. It relies on multispectral biometric capturing technology which captures the fingerprint characteristics at and under the skin and records this as a numeric string. the numerical string (binary code) is encrypted with a one-way algorithm. So, the clock looks at the fingerprint and checks enough unique points match the encrypted binary code stored. All in under 2 seconds which is pretty cool!

Although there is various projects on the market, these things can be somewhat technical and daunting.
