The Sargent BioFob from ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions of New Haven, Connecticut, is a handheld, wireless, biometric fob that uses fingerprint-based biometrics to authenticate the identity of the fob owner before granting access to items including locks, computers, or other equipment enabled with proximity card access control. It eliminates privacy concerns by storing all biometric data on the fob rather than in a central database. It integrates easily with RF infrastructures, making it simple to overlay biometric verification on existing access control systems. The device is compatible with HID and Indala RFID systems and Bluetooth technology. There is no need for wiring or separate databases.
