Now you can have the security and convenience of biometric access control – for the
cost of a card-based system.
With HandKey® biometric readers and
HandNet for Windows® software, you'll dramatically increase your security and eliminate time-wasting card administration. With
HandKey readers, your hand is your card.
HandNet gives you networked access control
that's easy to install, simple to use, effortless
to administer, and affordable. You'll enjoy
complete door monitoring in real time for
multiple sites. Remote sites can be monitored via modem or Ethernet. Every
HandKey unit has a built-in door controller,
so you can create an access control
network by simply attaching a PC. You
pay only for the software--there's no additional cost for networking up to 1000 doors.
Powerful and easy to use
HandNet software gives you centralized
access control. The system typically runs
"online," providing real-time, comprehensive
door activity monitoring, remote door control, and alarms. If the computer goes off-line
for any reason, the networked doors continue
to operate without interruption. HandNet's
user-friendly interface runs on Windows
95/98/NT. Extensive use of wizards makes
setup and system maintenance effortless.
Tens of thousands of HandKey Systems are
used every day in applications worldwide,
ranging from health clubs and computer
rooms to laboratories and stock rooms.
Reliability and ease of use have established
Recognition Systems as the acknowledged
global leader in biometric access control.

Manage over 100,000 users
Add, remove and track users from a central PC. Up to
25 user-definable text fields may be specified for each
user, in addition to standard fields such as name, ID number, access profile, authority level,
and rejection threshold. The user window helps you keep track of people by displaying the
last reader used, with date and time of use.
Automatic hand template management
Enroll users at any HandKey in the system. Hand template data from the enrolling HandKey
is automatically backed up on the PC and distributed to selected doors in the system, as specified. Dial-up remote modem locations are also updated automatically when a new user
Complete door monitoring
HandNet provides complete door management. Among the conditions that can be monitored
in real time are: door forced open, door open too long, duress, and multiple auxiliary input
and output conditions. Authorized operators may override the lock condition at any door.
No dedicated PC required
HandNet can run in the background while other tasks are performed on the PC. When an
alarm condition occurs, the user is notified immediately. If only an audit trail is required, the
PC need not be always turned on, because each HandKey can buffer over 3000 transactions.
Monitor multiple remote sites
HandNet allows you to dial up multiple remote sites automatically, following a user-definable
schedule. Assigning a name to each reader and site allows instant identification of the location of each HandKey.
Access restrictions
HandNet provides complete access control by user ID, time, and location. The access profile
wizard makes it easy to restrict time and location. HandNet supports 60 definable time zones,
with four start and stop intervals per zone. An unlimited number of access profiles can be
defined. The holiday table can maintain an unlimited number of entries.
Easy maintenance
Automatic transaction archiving minimizes maintenance headaches. You can define the
archiving process based on file size, days elapsed, or the day of the month.
Customizable activity reports
Activity reports can be defined and saved, showing only the data you need. The data
source can be either current transactions or archived data.
