    We use them here at work for timeclocks. They're tied into a central server, so anyone in the company can clock in/out across the country.

      None of the quality readers will be faked out by a copy of a print. For one thing, they can tell if it's a live finger or not. With Bioscrypt's, if you cut off a finger , you have a couple of minutes to use it, otherwise it won't work. So you might as well drag the poor guy down and force his finger on the reader.
      Sorry about the delay. I just noticed your post. The program was on Myth-Busters. Perhaps a re-run of it will play again.

        You-Tube and Google Video usually have that one. Just search on either for Mythbusters.

          I agree. Most up-to-date print readers utilize an o2 sensor when it scans. Since the oxygen sensor will only see the movement of the blood through the finger it has to be used with a live finger. The o2 sensor is similiar to the sensors that are put on fingers in the hospital, it emits a red light that refracts off the blood.

            It was used with a live finger. The fingerprint mold was placed over his finger. You should watch the re-run and then see what you think.

              We will soon have one of the timeclock scanners.
              I have no real experience with these but they do look promising.

                  I worked security for a grocery store which used the biometric timeclock system and payment options. They took a print of any of our fingers (except thumb) from both hands and assigned a pin number. So we typed our pin number in, entered our option and then put our finger on the reader. IT was quick and secure.

                  For payment, we could place our finger on the reader, enter a pin and select options from there. Also very secure.

                  We have over 200 people in our store, and we never had any problems with the system. In fact, they rolled out the biometric readers in all the store nationwide.
