Facial Recognition Time Clock Overview

face

If you are considering biometric time clock solution, you have probably come across Face Recognition Technology as one of the newest biometric verification methods available. The biggest advantage of Face Verification versus hand or fingerprint scan, is that it is completely touch free. Biometric Face Reading devices are impervious to dust or grime that would typically present high rejection rates with fingerprint or hand scanning time clocks. It also eliminated the issue with employees having dry or damaged skin preventing them from using fingerprint readers successfully.

The new generation face reader time clocks are very efficient and extremely accurate. These devices use built-in camera lenses to scan up to 60 different points of employee’s face. The process is rather quick, allowing employees to punch IN or OUT with just a glance in less than 2 seconds of verification time!

The facial readers are also hygiene, because employees do not need to touch anything on the clock. This helps in reducing the spread of germs or viruses in a shared working environment. Some facial time clocks offer built-in RFID badge reader that can be used as an additional punching method in lieu of facial scan.

With pricing starting as low as $429.00 for a complete kit, the Facial Recognition time clocks make a great alternative to expensive hand reader solutions or unreliable fingerprint scanners Check out our Facial Time Clock System offers to chose one for your business today!

Ways to Save Time in Calculating Employee Hours

Calculating employee hours for payroll purposes is a time-consuming process – especially if you are using a manual time clock. It can take one employee hours to add up all of the employee hours using an Excel spreadsheet in order to finalize payroll. Not only is this inefficient, but it opens the process up to human error.

A better solution is to use modern time clocks that can help you to automate the process of collecting and tallying employee hours. Many products sold by Allied Time can help you reduce the manpower needed to calculate the hours worked by employees for payroll and cost analysis purposes. Many of these products automatically calculate lunch periods, breaks and overtime while printing these hours directly on a time card. Some calculating timeclocks will store this information in a manner that can then be exported and downloaded for HR uses.

Another option is to use biometric time clocks such as fingerprint time clocks to do your employee time collecting. These units will accurate record each time an employee clocks in or out. This information is then stored and can be sent uploaded to a computer system or sent via Wi-Fi for HR uses. Using a fingerprint time clock is a great option if want to simplify the process of collecting work hours while eliminating the potential for fraud or security breaches.

One consideration when researching time clocks is how many employees you have. Calculating “punch” time clocks are designed for small businesses. Many of them have limits for employee numbers of anywhere from 50 to 100. Make sure that you are getting the right time clock for the size of your company.

A Guide to Keeping Fingerprint Time Clocks Clean

Allied Time has been a reputable and trusted time clock superstore for over 45 years. That being said, they know that the quality of your security lies on the quality of your product. If you want to maximize your time clocks’ efficiency, periodic maintenance is recommended.

If you own an Allied Time fingerprint timeclock, then you’ve been exposed to the precision that their clocks are known for. However, it’s still important to clean your fingerprint timeclocks regularly – even if it is in a traditional office setting where hands stay relatively clean. This is because your fingertips naturally exude oil, which can lead to a film on the scanner over time.

You can make sure that your employee time clock is clean and working properly by performing some routine maintenance. Here are a few tips for cleaning and maintaining your biometric time clocks:

Use Compressed Air Ideally,  all electronics should be used in a clean, indoor environment.  For periodic cleaning a recommended method is the use of compressed air canisters made specifically for this task.  Canned gas dusters are commercially available at office supply stores and online; they are 100% ozone safe.

Use a soft cloth. You’ll want to make sure that you avoid using a hard cloth or other material when cleaning. Using a hard material can scratch the surface of the reader, causing it to not properly read fingerprints. A soft, lint-free cloth will work in most instances.

Avoid bleach or industrial solvents. Using bleach or chlorine-based cleaners may not necessarily damage the components of your time clock, but they can cause discoloration or damage to the outside of the unit. You’ll want to avoid using any of these products or industrial solvents that can be damaging to electronics. In most cases, a light cleaning with rubbing alcohol will do the trick.
