In total, the verification process takes less than two seconds once a user presents an ID and fingerprint. The system is capable of storing up to two finger scans per user, with a total storage capacity of 50 users in a standard configuration. Schools that need more storage can purchase an optional memory upgrade. In addition, an RS-485 network can be used to link multiple units.
