Reliable Verification MethodsReliable Verification Methods

To secure the safety and privacy of an accommodation, a reliable authentication method which prevents illegal and improper access, must be deployed. Conventional verification methods including password and card could hardly verify the authenticity of the password or card holders’ identities. Truly reliable verification method of a person’s identity thus become the critical point of the security. Thus it requires a biometric verification method with unique authentication of a person’s identity.

Different Authorities for Different Access

Each building consists of various multi-level suites, each suite has 2 individual student rooms with their own amenities and a shared pantry. Thus students who live in the building shall be authorized with their own biometric identity for access of the building, and authorized with specific rights of their own suite and rooms. - a system that is able to provide multi-door, multi-level access control with students’ customized access rights.

Flexible Registration Setting

The accommodation is designed for university students’ non-permanent living. Each academic semester students move in and out, therefore a system which enables flexible and easy registration and deregistration assists the management of the accommodation.
