The Basics of Biometric Time Clocks
Do you remember using or seeing people insert heavy paper cards (time sheets) into a time clock? A biometric clock is the descendent of those old punch clocks and are certainly much more accurate!
The first time clock was invented in 1888 by a jeweler in New York. Today, they have real-time monitors, multi-touch screens, and a host of other features. In short, they’ve come a long way!
Biometric systems are very Mission Impossible-esque! Instead of relying on keycodes they rely on unique attributes like palm/finger veins, hand/finger prints, retina scans, or even facial recognition!
I will talk more in-depth about security later on, but have you ever heard of “buddy punching” or “ghost employees”? Biometric clocks help companies cut down on these fraudulent acts!
