Fingerprint Scanner Hamster 4

The SecuGen Hamster IV Fingerprint Scanner is the improved version of SecuGen’s popular and versatile fingerprint reader product line, with Auto-On and Smart Capture. Packaged in a comfortable, ergonomic design, the Hamster IV Fingerprint Scanner features the industry’s most rugged and advanced optical sensor using patented SEIR fingerprint biometric technology.
The SecuGen Hamster IV Fingerprint Scanner has an Auto-On feature, an Automatic Finger Placement Detection technology, that automatically checks for the presence of a finger. When used with Auto-On-compatible software, the Hamster IV Fingerprint Scanner will turn on and scan your finger as soon as you touch the sensor – all without having to prompt the system.

The Hamster IV Fingerprint Scanner has a Smart Capture feature that ensures quality fingerprint scanning of difficult fingers. By automatically adjusting the brightness of the Fingerprint sensor, Smart Capture allows the Hamster IV Fingerprint Scanner to capture high quality fingerprints from a greater spectrum of traditionally difficult fingers ranging from dry to moist.

SecuGen Hamster IV Fingerprint Scanner can be used for authentication, identification and verification functions that let your fingerprints act like digital passwords that cannot be lost, forgotten or stolen.
