Each of us is a unique person. If you're not sure of the validity of that statement, then just take a look at your fingers with the palm up. There you'll notice all kinds of lines going here and there with no particular rhyme or reason to their positioning. Actually, you could not be more incorrect. Forensic scientists have concluded for well over a century now that these lines, which are called ridges, have an established pattern unique in every human being, and that the personal identification of every person can be verified through his or her fingerprints.
The early uses of fingerprinting were mostly for criminal identification. The manual system of classification of fingerprints adapted the modern technology of computer-stored information and the Federal Bureau of Investigation set up a central data bank in the last quarter of the 20th Century. Fingerprints have long been utilized in order to identify criminals, missing persons, and deceased persons.
The attacks on the World Trade Center in downtown New York City, the financial and epicenter of the world, changed security world wide. As the two towers crumpled to the ground taking thousands of lives with them, it became apparent that there needed to be a complete overhaul of our security systems nationwide, statewide, county and city wide, and in the personal lives of its citizens as well. The applications of the biometric technology came storming to the forefront as we tried to secure everything in sight. Applications emerged for the use of biometric fingerprinting. This system was adopted by the financial and business communities as a way of controlling access to buildings, offices and any place else where access needed to be controlled, monitored, or limited.
Fingerprint safes for home and office were a logical outgrowth of the burgeoning biometric industry. The application of biometric fingerprinting in the domain of fingerprinting safes is a safe, secure, and cost effective way of gaining absolute control over access to a safe. These safes can be secured on the floor or mounted on a wall, and can be used in an office as well as in a home. They come standard with a multi-user (generally up to14 fingerprints) biometric fingerprint lock. There are wall vaults for home use which are of particular interest to people who should store protective items out of harm's way of children and others. The safe can be mounted on any wall in your home, and it runs on either a 12 V DC wire or by means of a rechargeable battery of 12 volts. The wall safes generally have a capacity for no more than 6 fingerprints.
People feel comfortable storing and protecting their property, such as guns and ammunition, in these safes because no unauthorized person can gain access to the safe. Upon the scan of a verified fingerprint, a door opens up, and access is gained. People appreciate the benefits of a fingerprint safe because it eliminates the necessity for passwords, PIN numbers, and lock combinations while ensuring security of their most valued possessions at the highest level. The biometric fingerprint safe has already brought comfort and security to companies, businesses and private citizens who seek to protect their property by means of the most modern technology.
