Price and rank updated 08/06/2022

Amano's complete fingerprint time clock system.

The MTX-30F biometric time clock system combines Amano's successful Time Guardian software (PC only) with the Amano MTX-30F fingerprint terminal.

Fingerprint terminals are the most popular biometric devices in the US. Employees simply touch a sensor withe their finger. No badges or PIN numbers required.

It works by first registering a fingerprint from each employee. It creates a mathematical measurement of the fingerprint, a "template", not the fingerprint itself. When someone touches the sensor, it finds the matching template to clock them in.

Is it legal?

Yes, but like all biometric systems we highly recommend you get employee consent before using the system. Have each of them sign a consent form that explains the process. Please consult with an attorney if there are any regulations in your state.

What comes in the package?

  • MTX-30F fingerprint terminal
  • Time Guardian software license for 100 employees (PC only)

Who is it best for?
