  • Publication number: 20190180543
    Abstract: A wireless biometrics-based locking system has a wireless locking device and a biometric scanning device. The wireless locking device has a locking mechanism, a lock control system, and a secondary wireless communication system. The wireless locking device receives commands through the secondary wireless communication system. These commands are then interpreted by the lock control system and used to transition the locking mechanism between a locked configuration and an unlocked configuration. The biometric scanning device is a computing system capable of capturing a biometric identifier, determining the identity of the user associated to the biometric identifier, and transmitting commands to the wireless locking device. The biometric scanning device has a primary biometric sensor, a scanner control system, and a primary wireless communication system.
