Iris recognition as an emerging biometric technology has outperformed many other technologies in terms of stability, accuracy, speed, non-intrusive nature, and complexity to forge.

All the above advantages has attracted security-sensitive industries to use iris recognition for authentication purposes, including authentication for ATM, online banking and payment, as well as access control for banking vault, correctional institutions, Data centers, and many more.

The compact and portable design of TCI301 also makes it an ideal device to track time and attendance.
