Biometric Finger Reader on Android Device

Hello

Has anyone had any success using a biometric finger reader with firemonkey on an Android device?

We have a Time & Attendance system that is already provides management report information on a Android tablet via datasnap.

Clients are now asking if they can biometrically identify a staff member arriving for work using an Android mobile device.

Regards

Clive

Here is code for a barcode reader. A fingerprint reader is probably very similar.

Thank you but the biometric finger reader will have methods to create Algorithims for matching etc. so I am looking for something a bit more specific

Hello Clive,

I think Noah meant the link as an example of how to pass info back and forth from the Java to fire monkey.

We are currently seeing how to build the Suprema BioMini Slim into a fire monkey application.
With the Android SDK being in Java, we have to call through Java to make the SDK calls.
Plus the SKD uses direct USB though OTG, so should be interesting :)

We have previously been able to connect to devices via WIFI using a Datasnap server and sending minutiae templates to the device for matching, but having the device directly connecting should help.
