Fingerprint Readers: Technology for Smart Buildings

Compartir en Facebook Compartir en Twitter Compartir en Pinterest


Technological developments in recent decades have been huge, with new and more advanced technologies such as biometrics emerging, and their application to various sectors has allowed society to take giant steps forward.

And this is the case in the property market. In recent decades, a trend has resurfaced for the construction of smart buildings that integrate the most cutting-edge technology.

Some architectural trends are already homing in on this concept. These kinds of buildings integrate the most advanced technology to improve the lives of people who live in them. Access control systems for smart buildings are an example of this, as are HVAC systems.

This use of technology in modern architecture is beneficial for all types of buildings, whether private homes, offices, hospitals, public buildings and so on.




South Korea has been one of the pioneering nations to invest time and money into creating smart buildings. The city of Songdo is one of the most significant and exemplary when it comes to this approach.

In this large city, fingerprint readers are commonly used to control access to homes in smart buildings. With this access control system, your fingerprint becomes your key, a personal characteristic that is completely non-transferable.

We speak of “smart homes" because in a building with this level of technological integration, electronic systems are focused on enhancing safety and comfort for users.

Who wouldn't want to live like this?

That's why in this article we've included keys to discovering how fingerprint readers work and what factors you should take into account when choosing the right biometric access control system to take your building's security to the next level.

Don't miss it!


What exactly are fingerprint readers?

Fingerprint readers are based on advanced technology that uses automatic recognition based on biological measurements.

We're talking about: biology + metrics = biometrics.

In this way, they use exclusive physical characteristics and even behaviours to identify people or objects.

Your fingerprints develop randomly and uniquely based on your DNA code and stay that way throughout your life. Fingerprint readers accurately scan this information to identify you. 

It's as if your fingerprint were your password, only an impossible code to crack.


The ideal fingerprint readers for your smart building

In an architecture project, special attention must also be paid to design, not just security matters.

In building access control systems, readers are always installed at the entrance, so this will be the first thing that stands out or to be seen by people entering the building.



The best option will be to use fingerprint readers that meet current aesthetic requirements, in addition to using the best security technology.

This is precisely what we specialice in at NÜO Planet, creating high-security solutions and access controls without setting aside our aesthetic and functional vision.

Our fingerprint readers combine the highest quality biometric technology with unparalleled design.



We have no doubt that fingerprint readers will be an essential requirement in the smart buildings of the future, as they are already common in the most cutting-edge corporate buildings.

If you want to take your building to the next level, don't hesitate to contact us. At NÜO we will be happy to help you.
