Biometric access control with DoorBird & Fingerprints

DoorBird integrates a Biometric Fingerprint Sensor in its IP Door Intercoms

Bird Home Automation, a Berlin-based manufacturer of “DoorBird” IP access control devices, is expanding its product portfolio to include door intercoms with an integrated fingerprint sensor. IP video door stations of the D21x series are now equipped with fingerprint technology from Fingerprint Cards AB, a global biometrics company based in Sweden. This enables biometric authentication via fingerprint.

With a DoorBird door station, homeowners and residents can see and speak to their visitors and delivery services on the go via smartphone and unlock the door when needed. Each door intercom features an HD wide-angle camera, motion sensor and audio system with echo and noise cancellation. Keyless access control via RFID or PIN code is now complemented by a new option: via biometric fingerprint.

The full-frame touch sensor is based on patented technology by Fingerprint Cards AB and meets high convenience and security standards compared to line-based sensors. The fingerprint reader is fully integrated into the DoorBird software architecture and can be configured remotely at any time. Via app or web-based dashboard, the user can grant and withdraw access permissions, and also define which event should follow when a certain finger is detected. For example, an internal or external relay can be triggered, or an HTTP(S) command can be carried out. To prevent manipulation attempts, the fingerprint scanner is temporarily locked after ten unauthorised access attempts.

The fingerprint sensor is integrated in DoorBird models with one and two call buttons: D2101FV Fingerprint 50 and D2102FV Fingerprint 50. Each door intercom can store up to 50 fingerprints. Furthermore, customers can create their own customised IP video door stations equipped with a fingerprint sensor and other individual modules via the DoorBird 3D Configurator.

“Thanks to the cooperation with Fingerprints Cards AB, we can fulfill many of our customers’ requests for high-quality IP access control devices with a fully integrated biometric fingerprint sensor,” said Sascha Keller, CEO of Bird Home Automation.

“When it comes to collaborations, we always try to work with the best in their class, and that is why we have integrated this technology, which is characterised by a superior biometric performance and security, into our DoorBird IP video door stations.”

“We are excited about our collaboration with DoorBird, our first IP Door Station partner in EMEA, who now launched their D21x series with our fingerprint sensor, a solution that is suitable for smart homes, where biometrics bring convenience and security”, commented Michel Roig, SVP Business Line Payment & Access at Fingerprint Cards AB.
