Not with those finger-prints mate – Sultans IDs its customers

The Canberra Times brings word of the security measures at Sultan’s Nightclub (122 Alinga St, Civic) which have been in place for the last couple of weeks.

    “The system involves patrons having their IDs scanned on entry, a digital photo taken and a finger pin the digital number generated from a fingerprint scan captured. The actual fingerprint is not used or stored…

    Future entry to the club for those ”enrolled” through the process was then as simple as scanning a finger. It also ensured patrons banned from the club could not regain entry.”


Would this deter you? Or make you feel safer?

In fact commenting here has reminded me why I stopped viewing this website a year ago – just it came up in a google search.

How informed do you have to be before your opinion is worth something?

This is post number 78 and its the first to mention that the fingerprint and ID scan system isn’t owned or controlled by Sultans, its run by NightKey (see Sultans merely hire their sevrices. Go to their website, you’ll feel much safer about going into a club with nightkey than one with just bouncers, and there’s at least two in Canberra now…………….

Business been a bit quiet lately?

???? Cheap shot. No connection to the business or Nightkey. Try and address sustance in ideas not in a bong.
