The biometric ID used with Procare Check-in Solutions is an elegant, powerful fingerprint identity machine. With an executive-class look and feel, the biometric ID Reader is perfect for power users and shared environments. Its design is sleek and compact to conserve valuable desk space but it stays right where you put it because of its nice heft and special undercoating.
The biometric ID used with Procare Check-in Solutions radiates an attractive blue glow that provides an unobtrusive presence in low light environments and also ensures that it does not compete with alarm colors in settings such as healthcare.
To use, you simply place your finger on the glowing window, and the reader quickly and automatically scans your fingerprint. For superior user feedback, a red “flash” indicates that a fingerprint image has been captured. On-board electronics calibrate the reader and encrypt the scanned data before sending it over the USB interface.
DigitalPersona readers utilize optical fingerprint scanning technology to achieve excellent image quality, a large capture area and superior reliability. The biometric ID Reader and DigitalPersona Fingerprint Recognition Engine have an unmatched ability to authenticate even the most difficult fingerprints accurately and rapidly regardless of placement angle.

Is the actual fingerprint of each person recorded?
No. Procare does not record the fingerprint of anyone. Instead a mathematical calculation (algorithm) is used, based on a unique set of data points within the fingerprint, to identify each person. In other words, a number (a value) is assigned to represent each fingerprint.
Can anyone else access the fingerprint information?
No. The print itself is not stored. Procare knows how to interpret the value assigned to represent each fingerprint in order to confirm that an authorized person is checking the children in. This is the only purpose of the fingerprint reader.
Does a fingerprint reader help prevent identity theft?
Yes, because only the person to whom the fingerprint belongs can check their children in and out. No one can pretend to be you since they cannot have the same fingerprint. Although a password or PIN can be lost or stolen – a fingerprint cannot.
Are there concerns about germs or hygiene?
No more so than opening a doorknob, using a keyboard, handling money or any other task where a surface is touched by multiple people. The fingerprint reader may be easily cleaned – see Use & Cleaning Instructions.
