The Biometric Handreader by Schlage Recognition Systems of Campbell, Calif., an Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies company, is capable of credential management while ensuring only authorized users enter a facility. The reader has a flat platen with five metal posts to ensure proper hand placement. When registering for enrollment, the user is asked to place his or her hand on the platen with each finger touching a corresponding post.
