Templates as well as other employee data (name, position, department, etc.) are added directly from Sigur software.
For BioSmart, to add biometric templates to the system, you can use both your regular reader and FS-80 desktop reader connected to a workstation via USB.
The system supports a number of access modes such as:
either card or biometrics
two-factor identification: card + biometrics
Architecture of the solution
BioSmart devices are connected to Sigur controllers via the standard Wiegand interface, and each reader is connected to the IP network of the site. Sigur server interacts with the readers via the network.
The following models are supported by the system: BioSmart 4, BioSmart 5 and WTC2 terminal.
Readers can operate both in the local or server mode, which means that biometric templates are stored either in BioSmart device memory (up to 4,500 fingerprints) or on the ACS server (with an unlimited number of templates). Please note that BioSmart 5 devices do not support server-based identification and are able to store only up to 1,000 fingerprints in the device memory.
Manufacturer's software is required for the initial configuration of the readers at the startup of the system. After that, it is not required for day-to-day operation of the system.
