Special Features


The Hamster Plus’s uses an Automatic Finger Placement Detection function to regularly check for fingers. When you use the Hamster Plus with software that supports its Auto-On™ feature, it automatically powers on and detects your fingerprint when you touch its sensing area. This convenient system facilitates unimpeded, secure workflows for all of your team members.

This remarkable device responds to any finger on their hands and automatically adjusts to all skin and weather conditions. This powerful security device includes Smart Capture™ software that allows it to function properly for all users and in all conditions, even direct sunlight.

Convenient design

Unlike traditional fingerprint scanners, the Hamster Plus won’t slow down your team’s workflow or reduce your efficiency. This portable, lightweight device features an integrated finger guide and optional weighted stand for fast and easy fingerprint identification. When you use the Hamster Plus with SecureGen’s driver, you can encrypt your fingerprint information, connect multiple devices, and avoid “false-positives” from prints left behind by other users. This easy-to-install device easily integrates into Windows, Linux, Java, and Android operating systems.
