    Physical security...biometrics... etc.

    OP: there are some standalone ip biometric devices from Fingertec I've seen. No experience with them though. You'd want a device that has an input for a sensor for when the door opens and a relay output for a door lock mechanism. This wouldn't be expensive and would work fine for show. What...
