Used as part of your two-factor authentication design, biometric authentication plus the use of a username/password, makes for the perfect pairing or “something you have and something you know”.
Another popular combination for building access is biometric plus badge for secure building entry.

The third-party system provides for detailed, audit-able log files and additional access controls.
How accurate are biometrics? There are about 30 minutiae (specific points) in a fingerprint scan obtained by a live fingerprint reader. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has evidenced that no two individuals can have more than 8 common minutiae.
