Fingerprints’ primary function exceeds mere identification: fingerprints help us to grip things! These complex patterns of ridges and valleys provide the traction we need to pick up everything from a pencil to a slab of cement. Interestingly, the uniqueness of each individual’s fingerprint is more coincidental than genetic – they form mostly based on happenstance. Our movements in the womb are actually the primary factor determining the shape and structure of our fingerprints. This haphazard formation makes it so that no two fingerprints are alike.
Biometric technology uses a scanner to detect and analyze your fingerprint. There are two kinds of scanners: optical and capacitance.
It’s thanks to this technology that we’re able to more safely and conveniently store valuables and firearms. To make the most of your fingerprints, contact your biometric gun safe experts.
