biostar
BioStar is Suprema’s next generation access control system based on IP connectivity and biometric security. A biometric device installed at each door works not only as a reader but also as an intelligent controller on its own. Separate secure relay units can be installed inside a door to eliminate security breaches.

The meeting of biometrics and IP makes a perfect fit by leveraging the merits of each technology. Increasing biometric costs can be compensated in BioStar by removing expensive control panels from the system and reducing the wiring burden from a central panel to each reader. BioStar’s IP based connectivity makes template distribution for biometric devices a less difficult job.

Now, BioStar presents the future of access control systems.
