At the heart of the Hamster Pro readers are SecuGen’s ultra-compact, next-generation fingerprint sensors with advanced features including:

  • Auto-On™ that automatically detects the presence of a finger when placed on the reader for quick and easy authentication
  • Smart Capture™ that captures high quality fingerprints from dry, moist, aged, scarred and difficultto-scan fingers for greater accuracy and reliability
  • High durability and ruggedness with proven resistance to electrostatic shock, impact, drops, scratches, extreme temperatures, humidity, and contaminants such as sweat, dirt, and oil
  • Patent-pending optical technologies for clear, accurate imaging with high contrast, high signal-tonoise ratio, and low distortion
  • Reliable performance even under challenging conditions and tough environments
  • Rejection of false fingerprints such as latent prints and 2-D fingerprint images such as photocopies
  • Fingerprint data protection with templates that cannot be used to reconstruct fingerprint images
  • Greater sensor-to-sensor consistency for high accuracy when matching fingerprints enrolled with different fingerprint readers at different locations
  • Ease of integration into many types of applications using a wide offering of free Software Developer Kits
  • Multi-Device Connectivity™ that allows multiple fingerprint readers to be connected to one computer at the same time
  • Device Recognition™ that uses a programmable internal serial number to identify and differentiate multiple fingerprint readers.
