The future is here, and it’s coming to the security systems of homeowners everywhere with the 2GIG EDGE Panel! The usage of biometrics was once only associated with spy movies or top-secret governmental access. Now, our home security systems have it integrated into their systems to our advantage. This newest addition to home security takes your family’s protection to a whole new level. This article explores the meaning of biometrics, how we use it today in our home security, and how it benefits you and your home. 

What Are Biometrics?

To begin with, the definition of biometrics is identifying and authenticating a person through physical characteristics or behavioral patterns of the individual. Our faces are as unique as our fingerprints. Technology in security makes biometrics now available on our personal level and not just an exclusive item for large corporations.

In the scientific community, measured physical characteristics often include one or more of the following:

  • Facial recognition using a camera
  • Fingerprint matching
  • Voice recognition
  • Digital signature
  • DNA scan

Although regarded as very reliable by companies that use biometrics, there are a few areas that cause concern. There is a need to draw a careful line to protect the privacy of their employees and clients. Continued advancement in technology further secures the privacy of our data through strict encryption.
