The Seoul National University Hospital Clinical Research Institute had encountered problems managing their human resources concerns with the movement of multiple levels of personnel in and out of different restricted areas, according to a Source Security article.
The original remedy of using an RFID access control system only made the workload worst for the human resources department due to instances of fraud and lost IDs, so the institution tapped IDTECK, a developer of biometric access control technology, to fit them with a biometric solution.
IDTECK chose FINGER006, a fingerprint recognition proximity card reader with a keypad, as the best product for the institute. The system enables multi-modal authentication including the use of biometric, PIN, and RDIF card. The multi-modal aspect could be helpful for those unable to use their fingerprint to authenticate so they can use a card and PIN.
Additionally, different areas in the building were tailored to require different modes depending on what personnel would be wearing when entering and the necessary level of security. Altogether the institute has 43 entry points setup with FINGER006 as well as PIR sensors at exits making exiting secured spaces hands-free.
