Is it possible to use USB Biometric device with PHP in terms of reading the passed data from biometric device? If yes, do you have any sample script or know any working PHP to integrate with other PHP applications?
Thanks in advance.
unlikely. when you use php, you are actually using http service. i have not found any device that will interface with http service. but it's possible. check their SDK documentation if their application (service) can send http request. then it just a matter of processing the get, post or raw request that was sent to your http. i'm sure you have no problem with that.
perhaps you can use PHP as a web service for saving data scanned but it would be difficult for a website to connect to a scanning device unless you would be using a software
Actually I ended up doing this on .NET with the help of my friend.
We also have an option to use third party software and just use its API to connect on its database then use with PHP but that is kinda messy because we don't want to rely on third party software.
