What are biometric devices and what is the difference between biometric scanners and biometric devices?

Broadly, a "biometric device" is any device that measures a biological function or trait. As related to computers, biometric devices are used to control access and/or verify identity. Voice recognition, retinal scanners, palm/fingerprint scanners are all examples of biometric devices. A biometric scanner will take a picture (your fingerprint, your retina) and match it to a previous scan kept on file. Other types of biometric devices, such as voice recognition systems, will record your voice and compare the recording to a sample on file.

What are some Technical terms for a biometric device?

Biometric devices measure (metric) features of living things (bio).

Other biometric devices include Voice Print Analyzers, Facial Recognition Scanners, and eye (retina or iris) scanners.

Is a Biometric device an input output or storage device?

Most biometric devices would be input devices although they may also utilize storage devices and output devices in their functioning. A biometric device usually takes in biometric information about a person and compares it to information stored in a database - much like username/password methods of authentication compare the username and password to the stored information for a user. Fingerprint scanners, read the fingerprint, convert it to a data stream and then compare it to the stored data previously recorded for the individual, retinal scanners read information about the retinal patterns of a user, convert it to data and compare it to stored data, etc. Note that biometric devices must rely on a storage device, but usually the storage device is not part of the biometric device. Instances of OUTPUT associated with a biometric device might be a signal to open a door or trigger an alarm, but again, the output usually comes from another device that the biometric device is connected to.
