HandKey® II
Biometric Hand Geometry Reader
The no-compromise security
solution is at hand.
The HandKey® II biometric reader from Schlage utilizes fieldproven hand geometry technology. It maps and verifies the
size and shape of a person’s hand in less than one second and
allows access only to authorized people without the hassle of
using a card or key.
HandKey II hand geometry technology provides a more
economical solution than card-based systems because your
hand is your card. Not only is the level of security increased
using biometrics, but there are fewer lost or stolen cards and
administrative costs are reduced.
Schlage biometric solutions brings the true security and
convenience of biometric technology to any access control
application. The HandKey II can be used as a stand-alone
unit or as part of a networked system. Tens of thousands of
HandKeys are already installed in applications that range from
universities and day care centers to airports and prisons. Users
appreciate how easy the system is to use and the convenience
of not having to keep track of a credential.
• Field proven in high volume applications
• Saves money over card-based systems
• Easy to use and install
• Increases convenience by eliminating
• Integrates into existing systems
• BioCote® antimicrobial agent is applied to the platen of each unit
• A blue hand outline printed on the platen
makes using the HandKey easier to use
Door control and monitoring
Each HandKey II is a complete, integrated door controller
providing lock operation, request-for-exit and alarm monitoring. Biometric templates and decision-making capability reside
locally, ensuring your doors are always secure and will continue
to operate properly even if all communication to the main access
control system is lost.
Features of the HandKey II include:
• Door operation and monitoring

Stand-alone or fully integrated
HandKey readers can be used as a stand-alone unit or as part of
an integrated access control system. The units easily integrate
into existing systems using the card reader emulation mode.
Or, by using the HandNet software for template management,
thousands of units can be linked together to form a system that
communicates alarms and transactions in real time, provides
activity, user and systems reports, and allows supervised user
enrollment and deletions at any reader.
A variety of communications options, including dial-up modems
and Ethernet, allow you to design a system that’s right for your
