Using a finger print reader with FileMaker in Mac only environment

Post

Hi there, 

I need to find out how I would go about connecting a Digital Persona U.are.U 4500 finger print reader to FileMaker in a Mac only environment. According to the websites I have found, Digital Persona dont have a Mac SDK of the device, and a lot of people are telling me it can't be done on Mac because of this.

The setup my client has is an old card reader that used to connect into a SQL database and if the member has paid the SQL DB would send a command to the turnstile to open it. He would like to replace this card reader with a finger print scanner and has gone completely Mac so i do not have a Windows machine to even try from. 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
