Biometric Fingerprint Clocking Machines enable identification of a person based on intrinsic physical characteristics. Fingerprint scanning is the oldest among the biometric scanning technologies that utilizes the distinct features of a human fingerprint to determine or verify the identity of various individuals. Biometric clocking machines have been included in the list of modern technologies incorporated in various applications, mainly providing reliable security features for personal computer or workstation security, small businesses, enterprises, medical information systems and other password-based applications.
There are several body parts which are commonly used for biometric identification such as Fingerprint, Face, Iris, and Palm. Fingerprint clocking is the one that most widely used for identification via registration system. Besides showing unique pattern for each person, fingerprint also possesses other attributes that make it a popular biometric object such as easy to capture, consistent throughout the human lifespan and enable quick verification. For more than a century, fingerprints have been dusted for crime detection more than for security purposes. Today, with the advent of biometric technologies, fingerprint imaging or scanning has given various corporations, agencies and organizations one secure and accurate means of getting pertinent information out of a simple fingerprint.
In comparison to text based passwords, whether it provides single or multiple authorization checks, the best fingerprint clocking machines are more accurate and robust. Today, when new security threats evolve regularly, it has become necessary that the proposed system shall be developed in order to meet the changing requirements, and therefore, the salient features included in the fingerprint clocking machines includes easy updates, monitoring of defaults, and also scalability to integrate new users. Although the algorithms which are used to implement fingerprint recognition are efficient enough to improvise with minor changes in the original fingerprint of the authorized user, but certain physical factors like heavy injuries that may cause damage to the finger is an issue, and such instance have created a concern for the development of such system. An idea to overcome this situation has been considered by “TimeWatch”, and the proposed attendance system software not only provides alternates to such conditions, but we also provide a dual security mechanism which is based on dual checks during access.
Fingerprint Attendance System Software :
Regardless of its manufacturer or brand, a fingerprint clocking machine law works basically the same. Standard systems make use of sensors where the user can have his fingerprint scanned. Then, the machine refers to its predefined database, which stores the reference number, picture, account, pin number or authorization code, which correspond to the identity as well as the authority of the person bearing the fingerprint being processed. While most fingerprint clocking machines are designed to allow or disallow access to classified information, or controlled room or facility, it may also be used for simple applications such as employee time clock and payroll access.
Biometric Clocking Machines :
By far the most effective way of preventing employees from clocking in for each other, biometric clocking machine is available in a range of types. Whether you choose a fingerprint clocking machine, a hand punch clocking system, or a hand scanning machine, you’ll find one that can best serve your type of organization. By eliminating the usual excuses of forgotten or lost cards, and ensuring that workers are actually present at the times they say they are, you save a lot on payroll costs.
Fingerprint Attendance System Software :
Full service workforce management tools are not primarily designed to serve as attendance monitors. But most solutions can be easily integrated with clocking systems so that you have all the information you need about the labor aspect of your business in just one application. These solutions also provide web access and allow you to create employee schedules and store your personal database.
The next stage will be the location of distinct characteristics in the fingerprint image. Since fingerprint patterns, furrows and ridges are unique in every person, the scanner will look for those distinct loops, swirls and arches. In general, scanners look for 15 to 20 fingerprint image reference points for more accurate identity mapping. With the use of highly complex algorithms, the processed fingerprint specimen will be compared to a number of enrolled fingerprint templates in the database until it accurate finds an absolute match to the identity corresponding to the fingerprint.
In view of the security policy which depends on the nature of fingerprint time clocks for small business or a big organization, this system provides the user to set various security priorities as per the specific requirements. Logs of successful access and entries of defaults are preserved in the registration system for monitoring the entire access control system. An important feature which is a part of this registration system is to restrict the number of login attempts, that is to say, after a certain number of unsuccessful login attempts, the systems prohibits the user to make another login attempt. This number can be set by the authorized user, and that apart, login accounts can be created for guest members which lapse after single use.
Timeswatch tends to appear in the baffling tangle of security threats that merely an electronic mechanism is inefficient to guarantee total information security, and combining biological techniques like fingerprint recognition is highly recommended. We have endeavored to deliver a product which takes care of this fact, and this product is before you to test and evaluate. Our application of biometrics as a tool for access control is not only limited to companies, but is also being implemented in many countries as part of their border control.
