Schalge HandKey® II Biometric Terminal

Schalge HandKey® II Biometric Terminal

The HandKey II biometric terminal is ideal for access control applications requiring the highest level of security. This unique Schlage technology utilizes the geometry of the human hand as a credential. HandKey II readers capture the shape and size of a hand, taking over 90 distinct measurements. They then convert and store the measurements as a 9-byte numerical identification template completely unique to each person making the hand a key to the entry.

The HandKey II functions as a standalone unit or is easily integrated into an existing access control system. As an access controller, it provides lock mechanism management with request-to-exit and alarm monitoring. Alarms include tampering response, ID refusal, excessive scan attempts, user duress, and power failure. The HandKey II is also easy to maintain, making it an ideal mix of convenience, security and peace of mind.
