Next Generation Access Control System

suprema-biostarProduct Description

BioStar is the name of Suprema’s next generation access control system based on IP connectivity and biometric security. A biometric device installed at each door works not only as a reader but also as an intelligent controller on its own. Separate secure relay units can be installed inside a door to eliminate security breaches.

The meeting of biometrics and IP makes a perfect fit by leveraging the merits of each technology. Increasing biometrics cost can be compensated in BioStar by removing expensive control panels from the system and reducing wiring burden from a central panel to each reader. BioStar’s IP based connectivity makes template distribution for biometric devices a no more difficult job.

Now, BioStar presents the future of access control systems.


  • Simple and easy installation with less wiring
  • Lower cost per door without conventional control panels
  • Flexible and extendible IP based system structure
  • Biometric security at the price of legacy systems
  • Flexible zone management for anti-passback and alarm
  • BioStar SDK for easy integration with third party systems
