To keep your Fingerprint Scanner working perfectly for years to come, you'll need to perform the proper maintenance procedure. 

  • To clean the fingerprint scanner, spray Windex onto a soft cloth and gently wipe the outside casing and the finger pad. 
  • Do not use any corrosive cleaners like methylated spirits or turpentine as this will damage the scanner, only use Windex.
  • Do not spill any liquids on the Fingerprint Scanner, as any water damage will void your warranty.
