The Suprema D-Station is an aesthetic, well designed device that befits the demands of our age. The quality of the materials used is adequate and the plastic casing radiates elegance. The system is equipped with two fingerprint scanners, a face recognition camera and an RFID card reader.

Although it depends on the actual usage, the time spent operating the device is a rather important parameter along with the ratio of (falsely) rejected identification attempts. Another question is how much time and effort is required for the enrolment of a user, and what percent of the possible users cannot be enrolled at all.

The enrolment tests show that the time frame for enrolment should be properly planned, especially for larger organizations. Rejected enrolments ocurred, altough only in small numbers.

We sought answers for these questions and our experiences were mostly pleasant.

While the FNMR values can only be truly interpreted with other factors, our results show that the device has an order of magnitude larger FNMR rate than the factory disclosed value. However, this does not mean that the device is bad, in fact, it performed well compared to similar devices.

Considering the ARAD values - the required time for a successful identification - the device performed very well, which allows for a fast and convenient operation for users.

Our stress tests showed that the device can tolerate a wide range of user behaviours. However, we do not suggest using the device in a contaminated environment, because identification performance degrades so much that it fully hampers normal operation.
