How Biometric Time Clocks WorkSo you may be thinking of installing biometric time clocks into your place of work, for fast clocking in and out for your employees. Sure they are high tech and they just look cool, but you may be wondering how they really work.
When you first set one up, you'll have all the employees touch their fingers to the screen. Usually the index or thumb are the easiest to be captured, but any of the 10 fingers can be used. The finger scanner does just that, scans the fingerprint. There is software inside the converts the fingerprint into data and a database that stores all the fingerprints on file.
And the fingerprint images can't be duplicated, so a live finger has to be used to log in, protecting you and your workplace. The technology is also safe to use, as there is no evidence of any negative health affects with the system.
The biggest benefits of the system are reliability and safety. Since employees cannot ask anyone else to clock in for them without being present, they cannot cheat the system. And since only their fingerprint can work, it's especially useful for locked, employee only areas so you know you won't have a security breach.
