SentryCard Biometric Fingerprint Smart Card

SentryCard Biometric Fingerprint Smart Card


The SentryCard Biometric Fingerprint Smart Card is “the union between absolute proof-of-identity, individual control, and privacy.“ It is an all-in-one CONVENIENT credential solution for both physical and logical access which stores credential information on the smart card. With its PROOF-POSITIVE authentication and ABSOLUTE TRUST requiring not only the possession of a smart card but rather an inclusion of a fingerprint, intruders will have an even harder time to access your facilities and applications. It supports privacy regulations, biometrics are enrolled, stored and matched all within the credential card itself, alleviating all GDPR, CCPA, and BIPA meaning that you can stay in compliance with the latest privacy rules.

The Sentry Biometric Smart Card is a MULTI-FUNCTIONAL smart card that has both biometrics and physical access features allowing you to securely identify your employees. Sentry’s Biometric Card is not simply a piece of plastic with an antenna in it as many Proximity cards are! There is sophisticated technology being used within the FINGERPRINT SENSOR to identify your employees and their unique credentials. It also has a use case in logical access with FIDO2 support allowing for the integration into HID Digital Persona or other login solutions for MFA (MULTI-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION) for both your network and the enterprise applications that you use. Last but certainly not least, it has UHF (ULTRA HIGH FREQUENCY) support within the smart card to monitor employees in real-time in case of emergencies. You can safely have all your employees exit the building without anyone being trapped inside.

SentryCard is redefining trust by driving a new paradigm of converged biometric security, shifting away from relying on legacy forms of identification to the use of biometrically authenticated identification.

Features & Benefits

  • Several best-in-breed technologies packaged in a single ISO-specific card form factor.
  • Biometrics are enrolled, stored and matched solely within the credential, safeguarding Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Fully compliant with GDPR and CCPA regulations.
  • A frictionless multi-function credential that is otherwise undiscoverable until biometrically authenticated.
  • Advanced power technologies; leveraging both battery and energy harvesting.
  • Embedded UHF technology for passive proximity detection. Perfect for contract tracing and mustering.
  • Does not require an end-user to rip and replace current infrastructure.
