Moneypenny was a crack shot, so I definitely wouldn't try to sneak past her! There was a line in one of the books where M says that she shoots better than most of his agents, I think that was after Bond was brainwashed and tried to assassinate M with a cyanide gun, can't remember which book.
A previous employer of mine bought USB fingerprint scanners, I have no idea how much they cost or how reliable they were. After seeing the Mythbusters ep where they got past a fingerprint scanner door lock without a lot of trouble, I wouldn't say they're very good.
I like the fingerprint scanner in the iPhone 6. It doesn't read just the fingerprint, it also notes the capillary pattern beneath your skin. No idea if it looks to see whether or not you have any body temperature, such sensors can be problematic in harsh winters or other cold climates. Still, I don't use it for unlocking my phone since you can be legally compelled to produce a key, i.e. your finger, but not a password, i.e. your brain. Though there are exceptions to that.
I've also read about Bluetooth proximity security: you walk away from your computer with your phone in your pocket, and your computer automatically locks. I really like that, pity that more desktop computers don't have BT built-in.
