SecuGen's Low-Cost, Compact Bluetooth Fingerprint Reader By Jeff Brown, Vice President of Sales, SecuGen Corporation What is Unity 20 Bluetooth? The Unity 20 Bluetooth is the world's first elegantly designed, low cost, fully programmable Bluetooth fingerprint reader. It is sleek and small enough to be carried in your pocket as a mobile fingerprint reader or placed at a work- station as an ergonomic desktop read- er. It's a versatile scanner that can securely transfer fingerprint data wire- lessly to mobile devices and computers alike. But it can also process and store encrypted fingerprints within the device without having fingerprint data ever leaving the device. This can help ensure that sensitive biometric data stays secure within the users' possession at all times, which can be important for sensitive transactions. What's so appealing about it? Most Bluetooth products on the market are about as attractive as a deck of cards. The Unity 20 Bluetooth reader, on the other hand, is a stunning device with a simple but intuitive single button inter- face and three small LEDs. Our team has been able to achieve this while keeping the price of the product very low and suitable even for large-scale deploy- ments. With support for Android and iOS, the Unity 20 Bluetooth can be paired with most smartphones or tablets as an efficient solution for roaming enrollment and authentication of groups of people without having to deal with bulky machines. No longer requiring cables that can lead to clunky tethering, the Unity 20 Bluetooth was designed so that an administrator can hold it in one hand while presenting it to a user to place their finger comfortably to scan. What's under the hood? The Unity 20 Bluetooth can be used right out of the box using the pre- installed Fingerprint Management System soft- ware. Alternatively, it can be completely custom programmed to suit the needs of the tar- geted user base. Within the slim, sleek white case, the reader has a 1GHz CPU and complete Linux development envi- ronment, including SecuGen's finger- print capture and NIST MINEX-compli- ant template extraction and matching algorithms, and the OpenSSL cryptogra- phy library. What does this say about us? This product is the embodiment of our philosophy of listening to the voices of our partners and designing world class products to meet their needs. The Unity 20 Bluetooth is a breakthrough product that maintains our dedication to quality and affordability. As this is precisely what our partners have been asking for, we are excited to support and help them succeed with new prod- ucts that are attractive, powerful and economical.
