DID YOU KNOW…
…the Hopewell-Loudon cafeteria is changing to a secure biometric identification system for school lunches? This is one of the most secure, cost effective, and reliable methods of identification possible. Students will use their finger to access their account rather than their 4-digit pin. We chose finger biometrics because of its accuracy, speed, expandability and cost effectiveness. The system takes a picture of the student’s finger and does not actually take a fingerprint. In addition, parents can rest assured that biometric images cannot be used by law enforcement for identification purposes. Only a mathematical algorithm remains in the system after registration – not fingerprint images.
For younger students, this system removes the need for them to memorize a number or carry it with them. It also eliminates the ability to guess, steal, or share a pin number. Never again will a student hold up a lunch line to search for his/her ID card, or have someone else charge a meal on his or her account. Since it speeds up the process, students spend less time in line and more time eating lunch!
