Biometrics is Here
What is Biometrics?
It is a technical term used for body measurements that are distinct and measurable (eg. fingerprints) used for authentication purposes in access control systems.
Why are we changing to Biometrics?
This is to upgrade the existing access control system and to enhance the safety of the Wits community.
Where will the Biometric devices be installed?
The initial deployment will be at all perimeter entrance and exit points at boom gates and turnstiles on all campuses:
- Braamfontein Campus East
- Braamfontein Campus West
- Parktown Campuses
