Lumidigm M-Series Fingerprint details

Access control devices, time and attendance clocks, and self-service kiosks must work for real people. Throughput is crucial. Every person must experience the same easy and convenient single touch and go experience. No matter if their finger is extra dry, extra oily, damaged, aged, dirty or wet.

The Lumidigm® M-Series Fingerprint Module prevents buddy punching, badge sharing and badge renting. Patented multispectral imaging (MSI) identifies and rejects fake finger attempts. Preventing biometric sharing and the use of fake fingers.

HID Lumidigm SDK

The HID Lumidigm Software developer Kit (SDK) is a collection of application programing interfaces (APIs), documentation and code samples that allows developers to quickly create applications that integrate fingerprint biometrics and HID patented Multispectral Imaging (MSI) to ensure someone isn’t
fraudulently using another person’s identity. SEE MORE

Integrate M-Series fingerprint modules into your devices

Faster throughput improve productivity 

Multispectral fingerprint imaging works in all environments, consistently capturing high-quality fingerprint images even when the finger is dry, wet, dirty, damaged or aged in strong light. eliminating lines caused by false rejections.

Strengthen security 

M-Series Fingerprint Modules Prevent fraudulent use of shared fake or stolen biometric data with patented high-performance MSI liveness detection, encryption and physical tamper detection.

Deliver matching accuracy 

Be confident that only legitimate users are authenticated with reliable 1:1 matching and 1:N search.

Reduce footprint

Compact module for applications with limited space and real estate.

M-Series Fingerprint Modules bring proven multispectral fingerprint imaging to demanding yet cost-sensitive applications, with development tools that help speed your time to market.

Lumidigm® M-Series Fingerprint Modules deliver proven multispectral fingerprint authentication, outperforming competitive fingerprint technologies, especially if users’ fingers are dry, wet or dirty.



Fingerprint readers are used to securely verify identity

HID covers a wide range of products from the simplest for authentication on PC, network to the most complex of the LUMIDIGM series used by the FBI


The fingerprint scanner scans your fingerprint.

It can be used for many applications, including access control, license verification, criminal background checks, computer logon, etc.


Verification of the “liveliness” of a person, in practice verifying that the fingerprint is not a fake, which is performed via a computer system.

This control is usually used to counter fraud and identity theft.


The main categories of fingerprint matching techniques are minutiae-based matching and pattern matching.

Pattern matching simply compares stored images to see how similar they are.

Pattern matching is usually used in fingerprint systems to detect any duplicates.
