Hi do you have a fingerprint scanner that can be accessed via internet for finger print stowage capacity, rather than only 80 finger prints, Thanks in advance


Hey Terry,

Welcome to the forum!

Unfortunately, we don’t have any all-in-one fingerprint scanner modules, even that one above needs to be connected to something to accept and handle the input scans.

However, connecting something like this up to a microcontroller like an Arduino will give you that functionality (you can see some examples here).

For WiFi connectivity, you will need a microcontroller capable of that. The Arduino Uno WiFi Rev2 has everything you need on the board!

Hope this helps.


I keep getting an error that says i cant connect to the module even though i have followed the woring guide as shown in the DFRobot tutorial. Has anyone faced these issues?


Hey Nikhil,

Welcome to the forum!!

Do you have a picture of how you have that one connected plus the code you are running?


Hi there,
I’m using the 32u4 chip.
I am getting the error “Did not find fingerprint sensor :(” with all example projcects from the Adafruit Fingerprint Sensor Library (2.1.0).
I have had some success using the Leo_passthrough project to intereface with the sensor using SFGDemo v2.0.
With SFGDemo, I am able to eroll fingers but after a ‘sucecssful’ enrollment (the sensor flashes green), when using the ‘search’ option, it never finds a successful match.
Furthermore the enrollment image looks corrupted, but I believe this is because it is a capacitive sensor.
I have also tried adjusting the baud rate, package size and secure levels (within SFGDemo) but to no avail.

Any help appreciated :slight_smile:

Is this more accurate than the AS608 Fingerprint sensor?

I am looking for a fingerprint reader/scanner to use on my Ubuntu Desktop.
Will this device, or any of the others that you have, work on Ubuntu?

Hi Laurens,

I couldn’t find any that have a USB connector for direct connection.

What project are you looking at doing with the sensor? (and what languages do you intend on using?)
