Benefits of Biometric Access Control

Trusted & Secure

  • Multifactor authentication: face + phone + geolocation
  • Strong biometrics with liveness detection
  • Resistant to identity theft
    (e.g. through deepfakes) and prohibited account sharing
Access control is cost effective and saves money

Cost Effective

  • Multichannel usage with one software 
  • Eliminates cost and management of key cards or hardware tokens and expensive access terminals
  • Works with BYOD or centralized devices
Access control is easy and convenient with only using everyday devices

Simple & Convenient

  • Eye recognition for users wearing medical or other covers over the mouth and nose
  • Multipurpose: can also be used for single sign-on for network access
  • 24/7 self-service

Instead of the administrative burden of token/key card management or relying on difficult and easy-to-share passwords, innovative companies may now replace or complement this with their users’ unique features.

How Physical Access Control with Biometrics works


Access control with selfie


An employee takes a facial selfie with the camera in the access terminal or through a smartphone. The captured picture is processed as an anonymous, irreversible binary template.


Access control with biometric face match


Through the comparison of the biometric templates, our software knows within seconds and with high accuracy whether a person is authorized to enter.

Liveness Detection

Identity theft, forgery, and spoofing or deepfake attacks (through photos, masks, video replays, etc.) are prevented thanks to the authentication process by BioID’s patented Liveness Detection.
