BioStation 3

The New Door Access Experience

Multiple Contactless Access Methods

BioStation 3 sets a new standard in access control, providing a new door access experience that enables improved security across all doors, for organizations of all sizes. This terminal is smaller than previous model, yet it has the largest variety of features.

Facial Authentication

Mobile Access

QR and Barcode


Perfect for Any Door, Any Business

BioStation 3 is easy to install and scale in any environment, from small offices to massive enterprise buildings. It features a 47% size reduction compared to Suprema’s previous bestselling facial authentication terminal, FaceStation F2.

The slim, compact design of the BioStation 3 terminal is compatible with any kind of door. It is also suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments, thanks to its robust IP65 and IK06 ratings.*

Quick Installation

POE+ allows connection with both internet and a power supply using a single wire

Less Wiring

Wi-Fi enables wireless internet connection for communication with BioStar 2

Easy to Connect

A custom USB host connected to a SIM slot, RS232, etc. helps simplify new add-on features

AI-Based Facial Authentication with Higher Efficiency and Performance​


BioStation 3's NPU-optimized AI algorithm offers the highest standards in facial authentication accuracy and speed.


Accurately and rapidly recognize moving faces in high-traffic areas within 0.2 seconds


Use dynamic face templates to increase matching performance for people of any ethnicity and faces wearing masks, glasses, hats, beards, niqabs, various hairstyles, etc.


Detect fake faces, images, and photos to safeguard against facial spoofing


A high-performance AI algorithm provides accurate facial authentication in any lighting, brightness, dim or backlit environment. This is made possible through an AI algorithm based on Suprema’s unmatched technology and database optimized to access authentication accumulated for over 20 years.


BioStation 3 was designed with convenience in mind — users can enroll their face credentials by themselves on the device, and also by using a photo saved on their mobile device.

The Highest Level of Privacy Protection

BioStation 3 takes data protection very seriously.

ISO/IEC 27001 and 27701 certified to protect biometric data and user privacy

Designed to comply with GDPR(General Data Protection Regulation), one of the strictest privacy regulations

Embedded with Secure Element (SE) and Secure Boot to protect against cyberattacks

Completed penetration testing
through a verified institution

Provided with
'Face Template on Mobile'* credential

What is ‘Face Template on Mobile’?
– Own Your Own Data

Suprema’s exclusive authentication method ‘Face Template on Mobile’ lets users enroll into an access control system and store their face profile directly on their own mobile devices. This gives the users complete control over their own ID and their privacy. Users’ biometric data is not stored in company databases.

Easy Communication Across All Access Points

BioStation 3 enables integrated management over an entire access control system.

Access control is made easy with BioStation 3: Use VoIP Intercom and RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol)-based video monitoring to manage visitor access anytime and anywhere. VoIP Intercom enables seamless communication with all doors, and real-time video monitoring boosts security, ensuring that all access points are always in control.

#SavethePlanet🌎, and Save on Costs

Did you know that annual production of RFID cards requires plastic equal in mass to about 900 family sedans? The cards, lanyards and card holders are difficult to recycle, with most ending up in landfills or oceans.

BioStation 3 offers multiple credential options to replace RFID cards. Suprema’s contactless credentials completely remove the cost, labor and environmental impact of issuing physical RFID cards.
