0:15 Why would you use a Biometric Fingerprint Solution in FileMaker? Perhaps you want to incorporate fingerprint readers in your time clock solution to accurately record time and attendance. Or you may need fingerprint scanning security and technology for law enforcement agencies or government facilities. Maybe you have a FileMaker solution for drug dispensaries or prescription fulfillments in the medical industry. Or a point of service solution for retail business and restaurant. The possibilities are endless and our Biometric Fingerprint Plug-in now opens the door to allow you to build any unique and creative solution that would otherwise not be possible.

0:59 What fingerprint device do we use? The Digital Persona 4500 FingerPrint Reader. This device has a soft blue glow that doesn’t compete in low light environments or conflict with alarm condition colors. The compact design allows for conserving valuable desk space. A high quality metal casing & special undercoating allow for resistance of unintentional movement. You can touch the device from any direction for an accurate reading. And have reliable performance over the widest population of users. The device works well with dry, moist or rough hard to read fingerprints in any shared environment. We decided to work with the very best hardware and the Digital Persona 4500 FingerPrint Reader device has an unsurpassed performance that is perfect for business critical solutions. Simply enroll your user’s fingers, grant your users secure access to any area in FileMaker with their fingerprints and then store your user’s fingerprints in FileMaker for future secure and accurate access and log-ins.
