SmartMetric Announces Fingerprint Activated ID Card Technology Update

Long and Short Range Transmitter Allows Identity Card Access for Security Sensitive Locations

BAY HARBOUR, FL--(Marketwire - November 9, 2009) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCBB: SMME) is pleased to announce today a technology update.

Company President Colin Hendrick stated, "We are very pleased to announce that our fingerprint activated ID card has now incorporated a special long and short range transmitter that allows our technology patented ID cards to be used in high security sensitive locations. The card is able to provide 100% accurate verification of the person seeking access or entry to a facility, such as a sensitive military base. Our card is able to send a radio signal to a checkpoint sentry box and then be used for access to building entry doors or gates. No other ID system is able to provide the level of verification and safety that the SmartMetric Card now provides. Much like a 'speed pass' used at toll booths, but built into the size of a standard credit card, the SmartMetric biometric solution provides the much needed security required."
